Aaron Taylor-Johnson meant to snog Georgia in Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging but ended up stealing our hearts all those years ago.
The 23-year-old British actor ignited a lot of fire (Angus, Thongs & Perfect Snogging reference) over the years. Between balancing his personal life as a husband and the father and step-father to four girls, and as an actor in some of our favourite films (Kick-Ass! Nowhere Boy!), it’s no wonder why he’s our #ManCrushMonday. On the off-chance you can’t see what we can, we’ve made a list on why he’s been making heads turn all these years!
1. He can rock any hair style
Aaron is somehow one of those people who can rock any hair style, an important asset for any actor.
2. Loves his family
Looking from the outside in, Aaron seems like a 23-year-old who’s just hitting his prime. In reality, he’s both a father and husband, and we love it!
Here’s a shot of him holding his daughter, Wylda Rae, while on the Toronto set of Kick-Ass 2 back in 2012.
Father of the year? I THINK SO.
If you needed another reason to melt, here he is keeping his wife, director and artist Sam Taylor-Johnson, warm while visiting her on the set of 50 Shades of Grey in Vancouver late last year.
Family man of the year? THIS GUY.
3. Great actor
After he took our breath away as Robbie the Sex God in 2008’s Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Aaron took on some intense and iconic roles. He became a young John Lennon for the 2009 biopic Nowhere Boy (which his wife directed), a geek-turned-hero in the 2010 action-packed Kick-Ass, and Keira Knightley’s paramour in 2012’s Anna Karenina.
4. He’s sweet when it comes to fans
Whether he’s on set,at an event, or even in a rush to get somewhere, you’ll always find this young actor stopping to take a quick photo with fans. Even if it’s only for a couple of seconds, he isn’t afriad to shoot off a few quick “thanks.” Every actor should take note!
5. His voice
Aaron got to show off his vocal skills as John Lennon in Nowhere Boy. In one scene, he even sings The Beatles’ tune “Hello Little Girl.” Would it be wrong if I said I liked this version just as much or, GASP, even more than the original?
6. He’s fit
This is self-explanatory:
And here’s our reaction whenever we see him topless:
We can’t wait to see this stunning actor in Godzilla (out May 16!) and the upcoming Avengers sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron (out next year!)!
So who should our Man Crush be for next week?
