Douglas Booth is the latest British import to hit Hollywood. And if the Brits keep churning out cuties like Douglas we will certainly keep naming them hotties of the week. With the limited release of Miley Cyrus’ latest big-screen vehicle, “LOL,” this week, we decided to shine the spotlight on Douglas and make him this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Douglas and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: The 19-year-old Londoner got his start mugging for the camera as a professional model before moving on to moving images. And, while he doesn’t like to address his personal life, in an interview with Out magazine, he danced around rumors he’s dating actress Vanessa Kirby.
"I have things going on in different countries," he explained. “You know, things come out here, then over there. ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is getting buzz on both sides of the pond, but it doesn’t really affect me. I don’t have time to think about who’s talking about what. I just want to do a decent job and then move on."
Where you might have already seen him: He’s acted in a number of high-profile projects including the recent Masterpiece Classic adaptation of the Charles Dickens tale “Great Expectations.” He’s also been in “The Pillars of the Earth,” “Worried About the Boy” and “Christopher and His Kind,” which have all made him famous across the pond.
Why you should take notice of him now: Well, this week he plays Miley Cyrus’ hard-not-to-look-at-he’s-so-pretty love interest in “LOL.” The film is set for limited released, which is unfortunate since the entire planet should get the chance to see him fall for Miley.
He’s got a number of other projects on his docket including “Geography of the Hapless Heart,” “Life at These Speeds” and the latest big-screen adaptation of “Romeo and Juliet.” He’ll play Romeo to Hailee Steinfeld’s Juliet. News like that could almost make us forget Leonardo DiCaprio ever played the star-crossed love.
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Douglas by staring at the photo above!
