#ManCrushMonday: Jai Courtney

Action Hero

#ManCrushMonday: Jai Courtney
Hero or villain, Jai Courtney seems to have us smitten with that chiselled jaw and those blue eyes

Aussie hottie Jai Courtney is slowly making his way up Hollywood's ladder. With a portfolio that has even had him share the screen with Bruce Willis in the fifth instalment of Die Hard and as the baddie in the Divergent series, Courtney's raised his profile in Tinseltown, paving the way for more movie roles that showcase his acting chops. Next year, you can look forward to seeing him as Captain Boomerang in the much-anticipated Suicide Squad, after having fought enemies with a Khaleesi and the Terminator in Terminator Genisys.

With a physique of an action star, it's no wonder the 29-year-old has landed numerous roles in the genre. Peel back the tough guy exterior though, and you see a softie with many talents. His tattoo of three skulls was a sketch drawn up by his goddaughter one afternoon and impressed him so much, it now has a permanent spot on his arm (altogether now, aww).

Be it fighting with or against villains on screen or etching a heart-warming sketch on his skin, Courtney may very well surprise us in future. Unknown to most, the actor can also sing and play the guitar decently. Another fun fact: He danced ballet in college, but admits that his pilé was not the best. Impressive nonetheless.
