Black men have a monopoly on swagger, we all know that, and most black women can agree that Idris Elba stands as the reigning and defining king of Hollywood swagger. The way he talks, walks, moves, and…need we go on?
In any case, aside from the Elbas of the world, we have to admit, there are some fine, full-of-flavor vanilla actors rocking it too. We’re not talking about JT here ladies (no cornballs here), we’re talking the white boys who exude effortless cool. These are the men who will always be welcomed by the sistahs of the world. We think you’ll agree.
Let’s just start off with the most obvious. He made quite the impression with his debut appearance in the cult film Thelma & Louise and hasn’t stopped since. His sex appeal, down-to-earth demeanor, and his stellar good looks will keep him in the running for People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” cover for decades to come. Not to mention, he does have a comfort level with the sistahs. He and Robin Givens dates in his pre-Gwyneth Paltrow, pre-Jen Aniston days.
Swagger Rating: 5 stars
