As I was doing some, uh, casual web surfing, it became clear to me that Mr. Jonas has gained quite a viral online reputation for his masculine attributes… which is certainly something that I not only appreciate but pretty much treasure.
Covering some of the global magazine covers for July 2012 are Smash lead actress Katherine McPhee, at last getting some deserved attention for her breakout role in the year’s best new TV series, on the cover of, uh, Cosmo Singapore; and the ageless, ever-glam Kylie Minogue on the cover of the U.K.’s Glamour.
The men are suffering no losses, with a trio of Men’s Health covers from around the world, including a surprisingly sexy Kenny Chesney, who fills his jeans nicely; and a “Hot Guy” topping Latina, through the eyes of the lens. *
Holy smokes! It’s been entirely too long since the Nun has served up an entree of beefcake… so let’s make it a good one. Meet 25-year-old L.A.-based model and actor Parker Hurley. At 6’0″ and 170 pounds, he’s a big fan of superheros (as you can see from Parker’s Tumblr blog) and in fact, is vying to play one in a film. You got my vote, dude.
Hurley has modeled for countless clothiers, worked the runway and has the requisite requirements for any Smoking Nun Hot Guy: effervescent teeth, fearless in a Speedo, a bod built for denim and hair that sweeps just right with a wisp of the wind. Ooh la la, boy, oh boy. *
Rufskin Denim, whose fashion lines are designed to shine, has just released its Spring 2012 swimwear campaign, featuring Rodiney Santiago. At last, some new pics of our boy, who has been busying himself with silly VH1 series Couples Therapy. Rod is shown here wearing Rufskin’s Paraggi, Palermo, Surf, Portofino Roma and Capri lines of swimwear in addition to various tops and accessories. For so much more, visit the clothiers webbie at www.rufskin.com. Its daily blog is here.And a few more nuggets from the Spring campaign. Below is our old pal Michael Barre, a runner-up for The Smoking Nun’s Sexiest Man of the Year in 2011.
Stupefied is the best reaction I can muster when I first saw pics of professional rugby athlete (and model) Stuart Reardon. The “straight mate” has just taken the title of The Smoking Nun’s Sexiest Man Alive for the first three months of 2012. Mercy! At 6’1, 30-year-old Stu hails from Bradford, Yorkshire, England, and currently plays rugby for AS Carcassonne in the French Elite One Championship (South of France). Reardon has been modeling professionally for a few years, and has gained fame on the cover of the U.K. version of DNA (above)—and the Aussie DNA. In our book, he could certainly be cast as Hercules, right? Book that baby! *
