There's nothing like a woke celebrity man, who uses his platform to make the world a less horrible place—and who is also fine AF.

We quote their tweets, circulate their pictures in our girls' group chats and find ourselves routinely marveling over their significant lack of fuck boy qualities.

It's not that anyone should get cookies for being a decent human being, but it's also not like they aren't worthy either.

Check out this list of our favorite woke-hot guys.

1. Jesse Williams

This is a no-brainer. The way he stands up for black culture? The way he stood up against trolls for his wife? Swoon-worthy for sure.

2. Michael B. Jordan

That "B" stands for bae.

He's anti-All Lives Matter, addresses racist trolls like a pro and his body is crazy AF.

3. John Legend

Legend's style is always super fly, plus he tag teams with wife, Chrissy Teigen, to snatch Donald Trump's wig every chance he gets.

Apparently, he's also got some legendary sex too, so...go Chrissy!

4. Lakeith Stanfield

7. Andre Holland

Did we fall in love with his character "Kevin" in "Moonlight" or with actual Andre? He's the guy who's super bold about stressing the importance of the black LGBTQ+ experience, right? OK, both.

8. Mahershala Ali

Heart-eye emojis lit up Twitter when he stood up for his Muslim faith during his acceptance speech at the 2017 SAG Awards.

An electric smile, delicious skin and a man secure in his faith? Here for all of it.

Yep, we're obsessed with the outspoken "OITNB" co-star and "HTGAWM" front man!

10. Jidenna

Broadway Bae deserves a standing ovation for the "Hamilton" play — and his gorgeous hair.

12. Channing Tatum

Ad failed to load

From his denouncement of police brutality to his impressive rhythm, we're into all of Magic Mike's, I mean Channing Tatum's, moves.

13. Stephan James

James has played in films like Selma and the Jesse Owens biopic, Race. Still, the wokeness its finest form with his current role as prosector, Preston Terry, on the new Shots Fired series—a show that focuses on police brutality and race relations. He had this to say about taking on job with such a serious subject during an interview with Flare:

"I feel like you've got to make conscious decisions to do important things and to tell important stories based on narratives that are happening in our day-to-day lives. For me, Shots was one of those instances.."

Yes Prosecutor Bae! (Spoiler alert: The acting is the best part of the show. Those abs are the second-best.)
