Man Candy Monday: Hayden Christensen

Let's talk Hayden Christensen for this week's edition of Man Candy Monday. Maybe not one of the first guys you'd think of when debating Hollywood's hottest hunks, but Hayden definitely has his own appeal.

I first took note of Hayden as a college student in a print journalism class. He was the lead role in the film "Shattered Glass", a true story depicting Stephen Glass, a journalist who got caught for making stories up. Although he was a huge nerd in that movie there was still something about him. Since then, he seems to get more and more attractive.









Birth Name
Hayden Christensen

Date of Birth
April 19, 1981

Birth Place
Vancouver, British Columbia

Notable Roles
Star Wars: Episodes II and III
Awake
Jumper
Factory Girl
Vanishing on 7th Street (a small but pretty good movie!)
Shattered Glass

Relationship Status
Off and on with Rachel Bilson - the two were once engaged

I get that he may not be your ideal of man candy, so what do you think?

Can you pick better? Link up and play along!

He is definitely hot. And I KNOW someone didn't link up with Bradley Cooper. TRYING TO STEAL MY MAN???? I don't think so! haha just kidding. Kinda. I can't wait for Hangover 2 so I can drool over him for the entire movie.

I remember seeing him for the first time on Are You Afraid of the Dark. And then he was on this Canadian TV show called Higher Ground about troubled teens that was absolutely amazing (canceled after 1 season and I can't find it anywhere). He's in my favorite movie - Life as a House. And he is definitely Man Candy. So hot.

Michelle said...

I don't mean to be a butthead, but is he straight? I know about Rachel Bilson and all, but is he for REAL straight?

Alyson said...

I think I'm in the minority right now and you and I are usually on the same page, but I'm not into Hayden for some reason. Maybe I need to see him in something besides Star Wars for me to see it :)

Ashley said...

He's good looking, but not really my type. ;) I can't really pinpoint what it is that I dislike about him, though....hmmmmm.

Kristin said...

He's definitely a looker!

Jessica said...

He just doesn't do anything for me. But Matt Damon or Bradley Cooper are both so sexy!

Heather Pranitis said...

He is very hot and (to me) very young... I loved him in Takers (I wonder where you got "this" idea from). I've also seen him in a few other movies but, I can't place them right now. Haven't seen the movie you mentioned but I'm adding it to my Netflix queue.

Heather Pranitis said...

Jumpers! And of course Star Wars... Thanks for the Eye Candy.

Ann said...

Agreed... he's hot!

Couture Carrie said...

He is so hot... and talented!
Fabulous post, darling!

Leesh said...

He's hot and he's Canadian!!! I am wondering if you chose Hayden because you just watched Takers...

I bought Takers in Blu-ray this weekend. There are just too many hot guys in that movie.

heather said...

age does him well!

Kate said...

LOVE him! Life as a House is one of my favorite movies
