When you think of the hottest celebrities, the faces (and, um, bodies) of folks like Chris Hemsworth and Emily Ratajkowski come to mind. Thanks to our overwhelming tabloid culture and unlimited access to social media, we knows all there is to know about these genetically-blessed U.S.-based stars, but we bet you haven’t heard of their counterparts in Australia, France, China, and other far-flung places around the globe.

That’s right: There’s plenty more eye candy to be consumed that don’t include stars who call Hollywood home, which is why we’ve rounded up the 15 hottest celebrities who are insanely famous in their home countries, but who aren’t  household names stateside.

Australia: Lara Bingle

Lara Bingle is Australia's version of Kim Kardashian—minus the famous derrière. She starred in her own reality tv show, "Being Lara Bingle," collaborated on a clothing line with major Aussie retailer, Cotton On, and is closely followed by the local paparazzi whenever she returns home to the country. She got her start by landing a role in Australia's most famous tourism campaign, "So where the bloody hell are you?" and today is the wife of Sam Worthington.
