Djimon Honsou

Benin-born Honsou actually got his big break after meeting a photographer out of the blue who introduced the gorgeous man to designer Thierry Mugler. Of course, Mugler encouraged Honsou to do some modeling, and after blowing up in Paris, he moved to the United States in the early ’90s where he went on to star in Paula Abdul’s “Straight Up” video and Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do (Without You).”
