With the “dad bod” trend sweeping the Internet, and this new definition of hotness prevailing all over, it seems more extremely fine-looking handsome celebrities have achieved newfound sexiness.
All without taking those excruciating routines in the gym, or that difficult diet regimen—while still enjoying extra munches of pizza and burgers with a generous round of beer. The “dad bod” movement has made the physiques of such actors as Leonardo di Caprio, Vince Vaughn, Jon Hamm, Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, and even Chris Pratt and JayZ such eye-candy without the well-chiseled look and maybe more of a “squish” on top of his body. But, as Mackenzie Pearson said, he is still “healthy.”
Pearson is a 19-year-old biology sophomore student at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina, who posted the explanatory essay “Why Girls Love the Dad Bod” on the college-focused website The Odyssey that went viral online. That post unwittingly started the “dad bod” movement and widespread Internet hype and conversations that instantly made Pearson a media personality and foremost expert on the “dad bod.”
“It’s a boy-next-door look. He’s the kind of person you go on a hike with, and then at the end of the day, you eat pasta and lay in bed and watch a movie,” Pearson said in an interview with Slate.
But above all, as Pearson mentioned in her viral post, the guy with the “dad bod” makes girls feel good.
“Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit,” she said. “We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.”
“While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive,” Pearson added.
And, they are cuddly.
“No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end,” she said.
What if Pearson came to the Philippines and was asked who among the Filipino celebrities would fit her fancy? We are sure that these three ultimately gorgeous and cute guys will be on her list of captivating “dad bods”:
