Chances are, if you ask a teen or tween girl to choose the hunkiest vampire, Robert Pattinson of "Twilight" would get her vote. But hey, there have been other actors whose vampire teeth and sultry eyes have made women's hearts flutter. We picked the Top 8 hunkiest vampires ever to hit the big and small screens, pre-Pattinson.

8. Gerard Butler, "Dracula 2000" (2000): Before he bared his muscles in "300," the 39-year-old Scottish actor played the lead in Wes Craven's "Dracula." Though panned by critics, we saw a thinner, longer-haired Butler float to the ceiling with the ladies he romanced — and take a little blood from them in the process.

7. Kiefer Sutherland, "The Lost Boys"(1987): Sutherland was just 21 when he played the bleach-blond leader of a young vampire punk gang. He was upstaged by the brooding Michael (Jason Patric) but, alas, Michael was never truly a vampire because he didn't have a human kill.

6. Frank Langella, "Dracula" (1979): Langella first made audiences swoon with his version of the Prince of Darkness in the stage production of Dracula, followed by the movie version. Despite his funky, 1970s hairdo, we still give him credit for on-screen sex appeal.

5. David Boreanaz, "Angel"; "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer" (The WB, 1997-2004) Beefy Boreanaz was the vampire with a soul in the TV version of "Buffy" and the spin-off series "Angel." Spike (James Marsters) got our attention too, but

4. Wesley Snipes, "Blade" (1998): Snipes' half-vampire, half-human hybrid has a thirst for blood even though he hunts vampires. Snipes made us thirsty for more of him.

3. Gary Oldman, "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992): Though an old, ugly monster in much of the film, Oldman's Dracula appears as a young and handsome prince with a taste for blood and spiffy sense of fashion.

2. Steven Moyer, "True Blood" (HBO, 2008-present): Moyer is a breath of fresh, er, blood as the vampire Bill Compton in "True Blood." We were just as pleased as Sookie that Moyer's character arrived in Bon Temps.

1. Brad Pitt, "Interview with the Vampire" (1994): Although he co-headlined "Interview" with Tom Cruise, Pitt remains the hunkiest blood-sucker to ever hit the big or small screen. But is Pitt's rank in jeopardy with the arrival of Pattinson's Edward? Stay tuned.
