It was the great and wise Queen Elizabeth I who once decreed, “English blokes art total hotties.”
Okay, so she didn’t actually say this, but she sure as hell must have been thinking it…that saucy minx! You think she stayed single because she couldn’t find a good-looking chap to settle down with? Bollocks, mate! She didn’t settle down because there were too many dishy chaps inhabiting her country! Why choose just one?! At least that’s what the history books say…kind of…I bet.
There’s just something ’bout them British boys. Their Eurochic style, proper manners, that accent that makes even the foulest of words sound so bloody adorable…No offense, American boys, but you’re just not my cup of tea!
Another beautiful thing about boy Brits? They come from good genes. Well, at least this gorgey Brit does. Meet Alex Watson, brother of adorable-perfect-girl-crush-hall-of-famer, Emma Watson. Can’t you tell?! He looks exactly like her! The eyebrows, the cute little nose, the smile…he is literally the male version of Emma! I feel a bit strange, actually, being so attracted to him. It’s like being attracted to Emma! Though, truth be told, if anyone were to make me cross over to the Land of Lezzy it’d probably be her. The girl is flawless, people!
But back to Alex, or Alexander as he’s called…(dammit, even his name’s hot!) He’s a young fellow of 19, and in 2011 the Brits named him one of the “Top Fittest Lads To Look Out For!” They make good lists, those English folk.
Just like his big sis, Alex is quite the smarty studying politics and philosophy at Bristol University. And when Emma was shooting Harry Potter, Alex would tag along to the set, and even appeared as an extra in a couple of the films. His biggest gig so far, though, has been as a super hawt model for Burberry. Apparently his sis (once the face of the iconic and quintessentially British label) helped get him the job and even posed with him in the ads for Burberry’s Spring/Summer 2010 campaign. Obviously Burberry suits him quite well…literally. Who doesn’t love a man in a perfectly tailored trench?
These days, gone is the Bieber hair Alex once sported in those 2010 ads. Now he’s got a swishy flowy Zac Efron-esque ‘do that’s close to godliness. Much like his sis, the boy looks good with any kind of hairdo – long or short! Just check out this video of Alex posing for photographer Harry Crowder in 2011 and rockin’ a sexy ponytail! Swoooooon. Notice…he’s shirtless…he’s British…he’s perfect.
As Queen Elizabeth I once said, “I would rather be a beggar and single than a queen and married.” She did actually say this, I swear. So maybe I was wrong. Maybe Elizabeth wasn’t tempted by English hotties all the time. But know this…if British blokes like Alex Watson were around during Queen E’s era, you can bet she’d be singing a different tune.
