Charlie Hunnam’s GQ UK Style cover: gorgeous or sort of Spencer Pratt-ish?

Your boyfriend Charlie Hunnam cover the new issue of GQ UK Style! The photo (by Terry Richardson) is pretty, isn’t it? Although I have to admit… I’m not really into blonde men. My physical type is dark haired men (or gingers) with light eyes, tall and lanky. Which is why Alexander Skarsgard has never really made it to “Forever Dong” status for me personally, although I do love a good Viking. So, I don’t find blonde men repellent, they just aren’t my type most of the time.

As for Charlie… he has beautiful eyes. But the blonde beard isn’t doing it for me. I know it’s horrible to say this, but the blonde beard is giving me Spencer Pratt vibes. CB assures me – and I’ve heard this from so many Sons of Anarchy fans – that Charlie is really, really crazy-hot in motion, in character as Jax, and even just walking around.

I have another confession to make – it was only recently that I found out that he’s an English actor. I thought he was American this whole time! You know why I didn’t know that? Because Charlie speaks with an American accent often when he’s doing press. But occasionally his real accent comes out… and it sounds weird:

Anyway, we’ll be seeing more of Charlie in the months to come. He’s going to try to break out into film work in a major way this year because he’s in the upcoming film Pacific Rim, which comes out in July and it’s already getting crazy buzz. Either Charlie will be the next big thing and Hollywood will take notice… or he’ll be the next Taylor Kitsch (as in, someone who could have had a big breakout but starred in one of the biggest flops of the 2012). Also: Idris Elba is in Pacific Rim. I’m just sayin’. That movie should be good for dong-watchers.

Some photos of Charlie at the premiere of Deadfall last November:

    damnit, Spencer Pratt?!? now, I can’t un-see it.

  2. YuYa says:

    Jesus, is terri richardson going to piss on everything? When will he go away!

    And he does look like spencer, sorry. Fleshbeard. Shiver.

  3. Sara says:

    Bahahahahhaha he looks exactly like Spencer.

    Also Pacific Rim looks pretty stupid.

  4. T.Fanty says:

    Blonde beards are not a good look. On anyone.

    • V4Real says:

      But Son of Anarchy cleans up nice. Maybe he can’t shave it because his character wears a beard on the show.

      But I agree with you blonde haired men don’t do beards well (Brad Pitt, Tom Hardy and Hunnam) Dark hair men fair much better ( Clooney, Affleck, and RDJ can rock a goatee

    • Hautie says:

      I am thinking Hunnam only keeps the beard when they are filming SOA.

      But it is true. Charlie can rock that beard on SOA. He does a wonderful job as Jax. And he would not seem near as menacing if he was clean shaven. :)

  5. eep223 says:

    Hush your mouth, CB! I’ve been reading this site for ages and this is my first ever comment, but I just can’t let this one slide. Charlie is forever and always the un-Spencer.

  6. Nicolette says:

    *SIGH* This man is insanely sexy to me. I don’t normally go for blonde, biker and bearded but he is my exception. There is something about the way he moves, smiles, his facial expressions, and his eyes that just make me melt. He is hardly ever mentioned here, and I wish he was more often. Dude is ridiculously hot. Hope the link to the photo works. :)

  7. Fran says:

    Aw, I love Charlie as Jax! I don’t usually like blondes either, but something about him is smokin’ hot.

  8. elceibeno08 says:

    The beard totally is not doing his face any favors. Man who have a narrow jaw generally don’t look good with goatees or beards. Also, the whiskers are too sparse. Shave it off Charlie, just constructive criticism here.

  9. tabby says:

    Charlie is extremely attractive. And I love the blonde beard.

  10. Samtha says:

    I don’t see Spencer Pratt. He looks more like Brad Pitt there, or maybe like a lost Pitt brother, to me.

  11. ZigZagZoey says:

    Has anyone watched the new show Vikings?
    The main guy (Travis Fimmel) in that reminds me of Jax all the time. Especially from the side. He doesn’t look like him much without the beard though.

    Pleas never compare someone so awesome ~ Charlie ~ with someone so gross ~ Spencer ~ again. It’s mean to us.

    And wow, I knew he was English, but it does sound so strange coming out of Jax’s mouth!

  12. lori says:

    He looks kinda like Steve McQueen without the beard. But I also don’t like the beard on him either.

  13. Tiffany27 says:

    I am not a blonde fan at all……… HOWEVER…… This (claps) man (claps) could (claps) get (claps) it!!!

  14. Michibe says:

    Please never mention Charlie’s name and THAT name in the same sentence ever again

  15. Jenna says:

    Jax Teller should NEVER be compared to that douche. How dare you! He should run you over with his bike. -_-

    And am I the only one that thinks Pacific Rims looks just as bad as ‘Battleship’? I mean…it’s like ‘Transformers’ in the ocean. o_0

  16. partypants says:

    you nailed it. he looks like spencer. crush officially over, but he hasn’t been hot like in his green street days for a LONG time.

  17. Jenn says:

    LOVE Charlie on SOA as Jax! He’s is a very sexy man! Whew! HOT HOT HOT :)

  18. annabelle says:

    You shut your dirty mouth. That wannabe Pratt WISHES he looked this hot.

    I was disappointed that Deadfall seemingly went straight to DVD. I need more Charlie in my life.

  19. Mona says:

    When I saw his picture on your front page at first I thought it was Jesse James (Bullock’s ex) with those eyes and the hair tightly slicked back.

  20. Mira says:

    No blonde men for me but Charlie is insane hot. His smile can launch a thousand ships!!!

  21. Mauibound says:

    I have a BAD thing for blonde men so he hits it, i’m still holding out for Taylor Kitsch too tho, he was so lovely on FNL. I would watch the commercials for him

  22. Dawn says:

    Oh hell no! No way could Spencer Pratt come close to Jax Teller, no way. Love Charlie and I think he is just becoming a better actor every day.

  23. LaLa2 says:

    Stop comparing him to that creepy little sceeve Spencer Pratt. Charlie is gorgeous with and w/o his beard and his role as Jax is the hottest thing. UNF!

  24. Isa says:

    I named my first born son after his tv character.
    But anytime I hear his real name I wonder “who?”

  25. thatgirl says:

    “crazy hot in motion” is the perfect way to describe it. He is one of the sexiest men I’ve seen on screen in a long time and I really hope he becomes a break-out hit!

  26. Grant says:

    I think that if Spencer Pratt wasn’t a complete ass-clown, people would think he was hotter.

    As for Charlie: Sit. On. My. Face.

  27. Mingy says:

    OMG! OMG!
    Excuse me while I go change my panties..

  28. lee says:

    I will always have a soft spot for Hunnam ever since Undeclared. I even remember renting Abandon with Katie Holmes with my high school friends just because Charlie was in it. (I remember it being terrible.)

    I highly recommend Undeclared though:

  29. EscapedConvent says:

    It’s funny about Charlie. I think he’s hot hot & hot. I don’t notice blonde men much either, & NO! NO! to blonde beards. But please, I implore you, do *not* speak the name of Charlie, who has done nothing to deserve it, anywhere near that disgusting, brain dead, revolting creature-who-shall-not-be-named but who rhymes with Brat.

    I will try to forget that I ever read those 2 names near each other. If Eve bonks me on the head hard enough while trying to wrest Cumby from my grasp, I may have some memory loss & that would be fine with me. In this context.

  30. says:

    Confession: Hunnam is ok, but the one on SOA that makes my biscuit tingle is Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman). I know, I know…

    Hunnam is passably cute but he honestly is a mediocre actor at best and I can’t get past that.

  31. Sarcasmo says:

    These two men never EVER belong mentioned in the same sentence, unless it’s something along the lines of “This former reality TV ‘star’ and permanent ass-clown would love it if he reminded people of Charlie Hunnam.”

    We forgive you.

  32. Isabell says:

    Lainey says he photographs awful and looks x10 better in person. If you notice he looks much better when he’s on camera versus being photographed. He’s hot .

  33. bettyrose says:

    I want this man with every fiber of my being. BTW, Kaiser, if you want a serious slice of Brit-Charlie, check him out as a teenager in the original Queer as Folk that takes place in Manchester, UK. It’s a bit uncomfortable to lust after him at that age, but the show is what it is:

  34. Hyuga says:

    I just remember him having v dirty gay sex in the UK version of Queer as Folk. I haven’t seen him in anything since.

    That beard needs trimming.

  35. Naye in VA says:

    So KAISER!!! Shame on you for not experiencing his delicious accent on Undeclared as the dorms resident hottie Lloyd. Go Netflix the series now. Geez what 30lbs of muscle will do to a man!!WHOO!!
