Here at Noovie, we're always trying to look for what's trending with actors and movies. This week, we teamed up with influencer Andy Lalwani to talk about something that no one ever gets tired of talking about...the Hollywood Chrises.

Of course, there are many famous Chrises but when we refer to the big four, you know who we're talking about. So, let's talk about them.

Hollywood Chrises Breakdown:
Chris Pratt

Loveable goof Chris Pratt first started tickling people's funny bones as Andy in the popular show "Parks and Recreation." From there, Pratt became a household name after his introduction into the MCU as Star-Lord in "Guardians of the Galaxy" and his animated role as Emmet in "The Lego Movie." Pratt has been a hot topic ever since nabbing roles in films like "Jurassic World," "Passengers," and a countless number of Marvel movies with more still to come.

Chris Pine

Easily the most underrated Chris is Chris Pine. This Chris championed the resurgence of the "Star Trek" franchise taking on the famous role of Captain James T. Kirk. And if that hasn't been enough, he starred alongside Gal Gadot in "Wonder Woman," as well as the more recent "Wonder Woman 1984." That fact that he's been the leading man in both of these big-budget franchises just goes to show how talented he is. Also, check him out in fine dramatic pictures like "Hell or High Water."

If we had to choose who the most beautiful Chris is, we're going with Chris Hemsworth. We'd also say he's the most shredded of the Chrises, even if Iron Man might not consider his character Thor as the strongest Avenger. This God of Thunder actor has shown everyone that he has what it takes to be an action star with all the Marvel movies he's starred in. Additionally, we see a grittier side of him in a more recent project released on Netflix during the earlier phase of the pandemic, titled "Extraction."

Chris Evans

Finally, there's pretty boy rom-com star turned Hollywood heavyweight Chris Evans. Evans impacted the MCU on a level similar to Robert Downey Jr. when considering the huge growth of the franchise and their characters. And even after retiring Captain America's shield, he jumped straight into the Oscar-nominated Rian Johnson film "Knives Out" and killed it! Even with his massive amount of fame, Evans remains one of the most genuine and humble actors in the game.

Ranking the Hollywood Chrises

This is a tough decision, and we're sure that not everyone will agree, but here's our call -

  1. Evans
  2. Hemsworth
  3. Pratt
  4. Pine

Chris Evans is the clear winner because he's the whole package. His role as Captain America will never be forgotten, especially seeing how fans have reacted to the most recent episodes of the Disney+ series "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier." We won't spoil anything but watch it and see how you feel.

The harder decision for us was putting Chris Pine as our fourth choice. There's no doubt that Pine is certainly an A-lister along with all the actors on this list. But, given all the projects the other Chrises have coming up, it would be tough to place him higher. He's still earned himself a spot in the top 4 so that's saying something.
