Man Candy Monday: Michael Vartan

I thought today for Man Candy Monday I'd go with a classic hunk - Michael Vartan. He had me at Alias. Seriously, I loved him and Sydney (aka Jennifer Garner) together as a couple...on and off the show. She always bags the hot dudes but I like her so it's OK ;)

Back to Mr. Vartan and my love for him. Actually let's just look at some pictures of that beautiful face.

YUM-MY!!! I loved him so much in Never Been Kissed that I actually started watching Alias. He's gorgeous and he's part Jewish? woohoo, lol. Even this married gal is honestly saying she's jealous of Whole Foods gal. Score for her!
Happy Monday--

Marz said...

I absolutely fell hard for him in "Never Been Kissed" :) I LOVED the part where they're on the roller coaster and he says he shouldn't be saying those things because he was her teacher. Gives me butterflies! :) He played that role so perfectly. That's def one of my absolute favourite movies and now you're making me want to watch it again just to swoon over Michael Vartan! Definitely LOVING your choice! :)

Ann said...

Yay! Its about time somebody include Michael Vartan in the Man Candy list...

Love him in Alias too,
still don't get it why Bradley Cooper is more famous than him these days and why Jen dumped him for Ben. I think he is a real catch.

Gracie said...

Oh my gosh! I adore Michael Vartan. I loved him in Never been Kissed so when I found out he would be in Alias I had to watch it (although Alias ended up being one of my fave shows ever).

I have such similar tastes in guys as you :P

Mel said...

I love him! I miss him. Whatever happened to him?

Jess said...

I have no idea who this guy is, but he's definitely good looking. He kind of has that "boy next door" look - doesn't necessarily look like a movie star, but is gorgeous!
