The Golden Boys

There were times when these boys stole public’s attention with their performances. Being dubbed as the next generation of Hollywood legends, many are wondering where are they and what are their next big hit as they we have not really hear much from them at the moment.

With the absence of Boys Brunch this July, let’s refresh our memory with these Hollywood golden boys and be excited for what they are preparing for us.

Alex Pettyfer

This British heartthrob started his career with modeling until he got his first acting job back in 2005 with a TV movie called Tom Brown’s Schooldays. Slowly but sure climbing the ladder of the fame, Alex led the cast in various popular movies including being the cute headmistress son and love interest of Emma Roberts in Wild Child and being a real hot alien from the book-adaptation-movie I Am Number Four. But we all know, it’s his massive body transformation and hot strip-dance that made everyone turned their heads to him when he landed a major role in Magic Mike alongside industry hunky-heavyweight names like Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey.

Alex also turned to be a fashion icon, being featured on magazine covers and editorials, front rowing the menswear fashion shows and handpicked by the Burberry creative editor, Christopher Bailey himself to be the face of the brand’s campaign for two seasons. He established more of his excellent acting skill by landing more mature role in historical movie, The Butler and showed his softer romantic side in modern days Romeo & Juliet drama called Endless Love early last year.

“It’s easier for me to play darker roles. To open yourself up and open your heart. It’s a scary thing. It’s a scary thing in life. Let alone in a movie” as he said to V magazine. Alex is currently busy filming another historical movie about two American legends Elvis & Nixon by taking a role as the King of Rock and Roll’s best man Jerry Schilling himself. Excited much?

Aaron Taylor-Johnson

He started his acting career really young as a TV sweetheart and broke many girls (and gays) hearts when he decided to marry movie director Sam Taylor when he was only 22 years old back in 2012. But as we see, that doesn’t stop him to still be everyone’s favourite. He set his prestige by landing a role in a movie that every actor would kill for; to be young John Lennon in 2009 British biographical musical drama film called Nowhere Boy. From there, his name became more established by leading the cast in action-comedy Kick Ass sequel and various other movie with different genres like Anna Karenina, Savages, and the legendary movie remake Godzilla.

His British charm won him several awards including Man Of The Year 2010 (Glamour Award), Best Newcomer 2010 (Empire Award) and brought his resume to a whole new level by fronting Prada Spring Summer 2013 menswear campaign. Aaron is currently known as a Superhero by appearing as Quicksilver in two marvel movies Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).

“I worked hard, played hard, and had money to burn. I got myself into some serious, crappy situations. My adolescence was all about wild exploring and experimentation, about doing and trying everything. Searching for what fit right.” told this father of two in Flaunt Magazine. It is rumored that he will reprise his role in both Godzilla 2 and Avengers 3 with really big possibility. Fingercrossed!

Liam Hemsworth

With his brother, they are double trouble. With him alone, we all know why Miley Cyrus was bust in tears and nakedly wrecked that ball. Flew all the way from southern part of the globe to The States, Liam Hemsworth can be called as Australian phenomenon.

He started his career when he was still a teenager in Australian Television before making a Hollywood debut in 2009 movie, Knowing, alongside Nicolas Cage. He once again showed his impressive act in 2010 romantic drama, The Last Song before having a two years hiatus and made a big comeback in one of the most successful both book and adapted movie The Hunger Games in 2012 as Jennifer Lawrence’s sidekick, Gale Hawthorne. After that, this younger version of Hugh Jackman’s acting career has always been unstoppable.

The Last Song and The Hunger Games trilogy might be the only movies that gave him award categories and victories, but we believe he will totally get much more than that in his bright future career. He has not only one, or two, but four movies coming up, queuing to amaze the public until 2016 by far.

Logan Lerman

The perks of being Logan Lerman: people will just love him in any ways. He might always be associated with characters that is innocent but have a big eagerness to be a hero and fight for his friends, but his career is totally much more than just innocence. This boy has risen all the way from the innocent little boy to a smoking Hollywood next hottie.

Logan scored his big role as Percy Jackson in Percy Jackson series, which is said to be Harry Potter series counterpart, and continued his success on another adapted movie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower alongside Hollywood darling Emma Watson that gave him numerous awards including Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Actor: Drama. Another notable work from him is probably a American war film, Fury, which he played alongside Hollywood veteran Brad Pitt that was released last year.

Logan is currently busy filming, yet again, another book adapted movie called Indignation, not only as an actor, but excellently as an executive producer. The movie is shot in Brooklyn and expected to come out next year. Logan Lerman must kill it once again.

Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas is a child star turns to be a bad ass. Or maybe, the good ass. As he is the youngest Jonas Brother that turn into maybe the most revealed one -literally, he is bares it all everywhere-, he is totally hard to miss.

Nick separated himself from the bros and started his own music project that still gained him loyal fans followed. Besides busy being a cool musician that people look up to, his love life might also be as busy as that. He is well known to be the Don Juan, dating it-girls from entertainment industry like Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Australian pop star Delta Goodrem, and former Miss Universe, Olivia Culpo.

Nick is also aiming for the film industry of Hollywood and landed several roles in movies and TV series that strengthen his declaration of versatile artist. Besides, his body transformation is also undeniably world-widely talked about, especially ever since he instagrammed that shirtless body of his around 2 years ago. He is currently filming a movie called Goat that will be released next year and playing a recurring role in TV series Scream Queens alongside Emma Roberts and Lea Michelle. Big days ahead, boy!
