#ManCrushMonday: Dane DeHaan

On the fast track

#ManCrushMonday: Dane DeHaan
He shed his label of geek and slipped into his role as Prada's poster boy and Sergeant Valerian in Luc Besson's upcoming fantasy movie

Maybe it's the glassy eyes. Maybe it's his disarmingly slow, geeky warble. Either way, the former small-town beanpole has skyrocketed into Hollywood fame through critically acclaimed indie movie Chronicle and blockbuster Amazing Spiderman 2 as Andrew Garfield's bestfriend-slash-nemesis. Lined up to be released next year are Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planet — in which he co-stars supermodel turned actress, Cara Delevingne — and the Kleenex-reaching drama Tulip Fever with actress of the moment, Alicia Vikander and again, Cara Delevingne. Here's why you should love Dane DeHaan:

1. He looks better on his driver's license than on his Prada campaigns

2. His tweets are gold

3. He gives pedicures, he's basically every woman's dream husband
Unfortunately, he put a ring on his high-school sweetie, actress Anna Wood — who got her toes pampered on her birthday (#jealous).

4. He's a proud 'fur dad'

"I'd like to be a dad. But right now, I'm a 'fur dad'. I have a dog that I treat like a human child," he said in an interview with Another Magazine. Here's DeHaan's FaceTime sesh with his 'fur child':

5. Even James Franco can't help but love him
Fun fact: DeHaan and Franco have shared a lot of similar roles — Harry Osborne, James Dean and the Wizard of Oz (Dehaan's was in his school play) and Franco expressed his admiration towards his fellow actor by painting him.
