The Brainy & Brawny Heroes From Films That Have Us Swooning


It is the year of our lord two thousand and nineteen, and we, as a society, need to talk about the horny needs of the greater good regarding brain and brawn.

As curators of many romance novels that feature studly and chiseled men on the covers, we here at Frolic can appreciate the male form. The only thing we could possibly appreciate more? A quick, deep, and broad thinking head attached to those gorgeous shoulders (aforementioned puns are 150% intended.)

So sit back, relax, and enjoy our list (passionately curated, we might add) of our favorite movie heroes who are smart as a whip and are easy on the eyes.

Indiana Jones


Wowzers, right? Not only is he hot AND a professor, but he goes on adventures all over the world, and according to our calculations, speaks about seventy-five languages (several of which are dead.)

Jamal Malik


Cute and sensitive and persistent and hard-working and has a killer memory? Also add RICH to that list of wants (spoilers) but Jamal Malik from Slumdog Millionaire could get it any day, any time from us.

Alex Hitchens

Perhaps one of the most underrated brainy hotties on this list, Alex Hitchens is the New York’s most successful Date Doctor, using his skills, charm, and pivoting skills to help helpless men win the women of their dreams. Played by Will Smith… yeah he’s at the top of his game.

Sherlock Holmes


Our thoughts, feelings, and lust for this guy are elementary, my dear Watson. His head may be in the clouds, but his smarts and sass are boosting our libido.

Tom Hiddleston… in literally anything


Okay, so we couldn’t really come to a conclusion on character for this one, but what we could agree on is the fact that Tom Hiddleston is always laying hot, clever tricksters and we support that campaign 100%.



Hot, honorable, intelligent, cultured, and a king? We thought perfect wasn’t possible until we met T’Challa in Black Panther. Now he’s all we think about all day.


Enjoyed this post?
