It's 2016, and feminism remains a touchy idea that many celebrities are even less willing to commit to than their significant others. These 10 men, however, have defied the patriarchal odds and openly declared themselves as followers of the feminist way. In doing so, they deserve not only your respect for believing in gender equality, but your admiration (in the form of your eyes staring at their faces). 

1. Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth, a gift to feminists and non-feminists.

In an interview with Radio One about his film The Huntsman, Chris Hemsworth revealed the depth of his greatness when discussing feminism and female roles in Hollywood. "Oh yeah, for sure," he responded when asked whether he's a feminist. “I think the balance has been tipped for a long time heavily in the men’s direction," he said. Ah, how refreshing the truth can be. "There are seven to eight male superheroes and one female in [The Avengers]. [The Huntsman] is the opposite." 

"It’s exciting to be part of something like that," Hemsworth continued. "But it’s a funny conversation to even have, because of course it should be that way. Of course it should be equal.” Chris Hemsworth gets more perfect every time he does an interview.
