What happens when a greek mother and an italian father give birth in france? You eventually end up with drool worthy actor Gilles Marini. If you don't recognize the name you probably will recognize his work. Most notably (ahem, and my personal favorite) he was Dante in Sex and the City: The Movie – you know the one with the full frontal nude scene?
…..I'm sorry I forgot where I was going with this.
Oh yes, but his other notable works include Brothers & Sisters, Ugly Betty, Dirty Sexy Money, Criminal Minds, and Nip/Tuck. As well as a few big screen roles. But his career began as a model in his early twenties with photographer Fred Goudon and after looking at these steamy photos of Gilles Marini you can see why he was voted one of Peoples Sexiest Men Alive.
I feel like the term Bedroom Eyes was just took on new meaning.
Did I mention he is ex-military ladies? It's true.
Wouldn't it be great if he just walked right out of my day dreams and into my kitchen (what?! He IS french and italian after all). Alas, all I have in my kitchen is sir DiGiorno, about to be tossed into the oven. BUT if you're lucky enough to live anywhere within driving distance of Los Angeles, YOU can totally meet him at World Market! While I doubt his wife will let anyone take him home, you can snap a picture with him, get an autograph AND enter to win 50 bucks too!
