ALESSANDRO NIVOLA

Face: FACE/ON
Body: YALE ACADEMIC
Arms: DESIGNER-CLAD
Personality: CHILLAXED
Distinguishing features: TWINKLY EYES
Attainability: MARRIED TO EMILY MORTIMER

I like him best in Coco Before Chanel playing Boy Capel, Chanel’s British lover. He speaks French (which he learned for the role), with a British accent, yet he’s from Boston USA, but has an Italian name. CONFUSING, INNIT?! Woefully underused as an actor, Alessandro can be seen in the recently released Ginger & Rosa, as well as Face/Off, Jurassic Park III (not his finest moment), Mansfield Park and Howl — among many other films. He is refined and elegant, with a chicness that belies his American upbringing and really draws more upon his Italian heritage. He also comes from a very academic and artistic family, and is a mega brain-box himself (always a turn on). I think he is just darling.

    He’s also a tasty footballer. (See the UNICEF Socceraid matches.) I love an athletic academic.
