The sexiest thing a man can do is be caught being a good boyfriend.
Tom Holland, Shawn Mendes, Brooklyn Beckham, Jake Bongiovi and our very own Robert Irwin are considered the hottest men in the world right now – and they all have one random thing in common.
When they are in relationships, they are absolute unapologetic simps.
Their public images have become not just about their good looks, but also what lovely partners they are.
In the nineties, when a man was at the peak of his sex symbol status, that usually meant he was single.
He was the hot bachelor and it added to the allure because we could all delude ourselves into pretending we’d have a chance with him.
Leonardo DiCaprio has spent his whole career dodging questions about his love life and playing into the playboy trope.
But famous Gen Z men aren’t playing the same game.
These days, the hottest men in the world don’t even pretend they aren’t utterly devoted to the women in their lives, and it makes us love them more.
There’s nothing hotter than seeing a man treating a woman right.
Sure, the men have various ways of showing their devotion, but all of it is pretty attractive.
Brooklyn is the son of David Beckham and Victoria Beckham, and the nepotism baby is flashy about his love. But, look, when you come from parents that have been known to wear matching leather outfits… well, what can you expect?
Brooklyn has multiple tattoos dedicated to his billionaire heiress wife, Nicola Peltz-Beckham. Some tattoos are bordering on ugly, but you can’t say that man isn’t making it clear he is hooked.
He hyphenated his last name to include her last name when they married, calls her his “best friend, and is even prepared to wear a matching outfit when told.
It can’t get any more romantic than that, can it? Okay, yes, it is also slightly cringe, but still, he is a committed man.
Robert Irwin is arguably Australia’s hottest rising star and even he isn’t hiding his girlfriend.
Irwin is dating Heath Ledger’s niece, Rorie Buckey, and their relationship is the opposite of a secret.
He posts about her on Instagram, attends red-carpet events with her and makes it no secret that he is a taken man, and it only makes him more likeable.
He is ripped, loves animals and is a nice boyfriend? I mean, there’s nothing sexier than that combination.
When Shawn Mendes started dating singer Camila Cabello in 2019, for two years the man was an unstoppable ball of love.
Shawn was in a huge upswing in his career when he hooked up with Camila but their relationship was never on the down low.
He posted kissing photos on his Instagram and waxed lyrical about her to any publication that would bother to listen.
“I don’t think that I’m going to be able to write songs that do it justice, that can capture the things and the feelings with her,” he famously said.
See? A love song wasn’t even enough to capture their love.
The relationship may have ended, but Shawn showed he was very much boyfriend material.
Meanwhile, Tom Holland is constantly going viral for being the ultimate boyfriend to Zendaya.
The pair are famously very private about their relationship but are still often spotted being cute together.
They are private but are still making no attempt to hide the fact they are in a loving relationship.
Tom even recently told The Hollywood Reporter that their relationship is something he is “protective” of.
“We want to keep as sacred as possible. We don’t think that we owe it to anyone, it’s our thing, and it has nothing to do with our careers,” he said.
Most recently, the power couple attended a Beyoncé concert and Tom was spotted filming Zendaya walking into the venue in a gorgeous silver outfit.
Tom, one of the most famous people alive, behaved like an absolute hard-core fan of his girlfriend – and it was iconic.
Then there’s Jake Bongiovi, who is so in love that at the age of 21 he proposed to his actor girlfriend, Millie Bobby Brown.
Nothing says “I’m in love” like locking it down while most of us are still on our parents’ Medicare cards at that age.
Plus, Jake’s Instagram mostly seems dedicated to sharing cute moments of him and Millie, recently declaring in the caption of one of their photos together that he loved her “more than words can describe.”
It is very sweet isn’t it?
There is just simply no denying that it has become trendy to be seen as a good boyfriend.
The hottest men in the world are now constantly showing how much they love their girlfriends and it only adds to their sex appeal.
