8 Totally Legitimate Ways to Land a Hot Famous Guy
WEAR THE PERFECT PERFUME
For Harry Styles, a specific scent — reminiscent of "his first proper girlfriend" in high school — immediately gets his attention. "I smell that perfume all the time," the former One Direction member told Rolling Stone of Mugler's Alien. "I'll be in a lift or a reception and say to someone, 'Alien, right?' And sometimes they're impressed and sometimes they're a little creeped out. 'Stop smelling me.' "
INDULGE IN A SPA DAY OR TWO
Yet another excuse to spend our rent money on our favorite fancy face masks: Idris Elba opened up to Essence about his ultimate turn-on (which is a little creepy, TBH): "Skin, I love beautiful skin," the actor revealed. "I'm tactile, very tactile. A woman who has really nice, looked-after skin is such a turn-on for me. It's always sexy."
EMBRACE HIS FAVORITE CONDIMENT
"Maybe, like, a little barbecue sauce on her face," Chris Pratt told PEOPLE when asked about what makeup he likes best on his wife, Anna Faris. "I think that's probably about the sexiest."
BURST OUT CRYING EVERY NOW AND THEN
"I'll never forget, she just burst out unconditionally with emotion and crying — when someone just kind of can't get their breath," David Beckham recalls of wife Victoria's reaction upon learning he wouldn't be able to play in his fourth World Cup due to a ruptured Achilles tendon. "She literally handed the phone to one of the boys and the boys were upset." He continues: "That was one of the points when I knew I had a wife that really understood me."
BE OKAY WITH YOUR COOKING COMING SECOND TO HIS BFF'S
Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal's bromance is so strong not even the Deadpool actor's wife — or her cooking — can come between them. "[Jake] comes over and — Blake [Lively], my wife, is very good at cooking and Jake might just be little bit better," Reynolds told Good Morning America.
ACT COOL AROUND HIS OTHER FAMOUS FRIENDS
"I've known Cherry since I was 11," Ed Sheeran told PEOPLE of his relationship with girlfriend Cherry Seaborn. "She worked on Wall Street in New York, and I had like six shows [around New York in 2015]. It was around then, and we reconnected. I went on tour again, and then I went to Taylor [Swift]'s 4th of July party. I was texting [Seaborn], and she was like, 'I'm in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,' and I was like, 'So am I.' I kinda said to Taylor, 'Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?' The rest is history."
COME UP WITH REGULAR DANCE ROUTINES
"When we wake up in the morning, we put on music, and while [daughter] Everly's eating we dance and it just starts to get stupid," Channing Tatum says of his and wife Jenna Dewan's morning routine. "Changing the baby is an intermission — but our daughter hates getting her diaper changed, so it's almost like a break-dancing battle to get it on her. As soon as you lay her down, she's bridging out of it and doing some jiu-jitsu windmill. It's pretty intense."
BE OPEN TO TOTING SOME SERIOUS ARM CANDY
As the husband of world-renowned human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, George fully admits that the role he's playing most often these days is her arm candy. "Shiny and pretty — that's mostly what I do now," he joked to Stephen Colbert during an appearance on The Late Show.
