Before they were heartthrobs on the big screen, they were turning heads and serving looks on the runway! This is a serious eye candy post dedicated to three stone cold fox actors who were male models first. Because shirtless pouty-mouthed boys make the world go round. My world baby! Owwwwwww!
First cast as a dancer for Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs” music video in 2000 (if you watch it, like I know you are immediately going to, he appears at 2:38, grinding next to Ricky and some ladies) Channing Tatum then had an eight-month stint as a stripper in Miami.What I wouldn’t give to have twenty-year-old Tatum rubbing all up on me to Ginuwine’s “Pony” *le sigh*
Once he grew tired of his naughty trade, Tatum signed to a local modeling agency, Page 305. Shortly after, Tatum found his breakthrough moment when he was cast by Al David for Vogue, appearing in campaigns for Armani, Abercrombie & Fitch, Dolce & Gabbana and American Eagle. In 2002 he graced the cover of OUT Magazine‘s Valentine’s Day issue, shot by Todd Oldham. Additionally, in 2003 Tatum walked for P-Diddy’s clothing line Sean John. Now thats what I call a resumé! xoxo
And then we have:
Don’t get me started don’t EVEN get me started.
Ashton Kutcher was one of my l-e-g-i-t celebrity crushes growing up.
Michael from “That 70′s Show” can still GET THIS any day of the week! Am I right ladies? You know.
During his time at University Of Iowa in 1996, Kutcher was approached in a bar by a modeling scout. He then entered the “Fresh Faces of Iowa” modeling competition, placing first! Stoked on his win, Kutcher dropped out of college and traveled to New York to compete in the IMTA modeling competition–but lost to another young model-turned-actor Josh Duhamel. Ouch! You would’ve had my vote, Kutcher. Anyway, after his loss, he signed to NEXT Modeling Agency in New York and went on to walk shows in Paris And Milan. Sometimes coming in second place isn’t so bad, is it?
Last but definitely not least:
Starting at the tender age of seventeen, Irish heartthrob Colin Farrell had a very minor flirt with modeling. The most noted being a series of photos that showcase the baby-faced bad boy in leather trousers and Moto boots, taken back in 1994 by photographer Stuart Campbell in Sydney Australia. Meeeeeeeeow!
So there you have it. That’s some candy, folks. Now Suck On It!
