Only celebrity men can land beautiful women with a dad bod. This little fact isn't only reserved to funny celebrity men either. Nearly any man within the targeted age range can have a dad bod!
But more importantly, do you have a dad bod? And if you do, how can you still land a beautiful woman, like Olivia Wilde, or any of the stunning models that Leo is constantly surrounded by?
It’s not that it’s impossible for a regular man with a dad bod, but taking note of how celeb men have done it (and continue to do) can be particularly revealing.
If you’re unsure whether you have a dad bod, then you probably do. Pretty much any man between the ages of 20 and 54 with even a bit of fluffiness around the waistline has a dad bod. If there is even the faintest outline of your stomach when wearing a t-shirt, then you have your answer.
The dad bod is here to stay, but you would be surprised at just how many celeb men have snagged absolutely gorgeous women with their less-than-impressive dad bods. Here's a handy list to boost up your morale.
15 Josh Brolin: All For Show
Josh Brolin worked hard to transform his body in preparation for Avengers: Infinity War, but there is something to be said about all the headlines that have always popped up about him (like the one from D’Marge calling him a DILF).
There’s also no closing our eyes on the many videos of him working out, such as his cable workout or even his Deadpool workout, but his default bod is still the dad bod.
Unlike some other celebs with dad bods, not too many explanations are needed as to why Kathryn Boyd fell for him or even Diane Lane before her.
He has even shared some very happy news on his Instagram on Tuesday, May 29, 2018, when he posted a picture of his wife with an obvious baby bump. He captioned the pic: “There’s a new sheriff in town, and she’s no bigger than a sweet potato. Hang on to your hats. #jbkbstucktogether #lilbeanterritory #loveisaslovedoes”
Although he never had kids with Diane Lane, he does have two kids from his first marriage to Jane Cameron Agee— 29-year-old, Trevor, and 24-year-old, Eden. A 30-year difference between the two and the newest addition– yikes!
14 Leonardo DiCaprio: His Model 'Friends' Don't Get It
Hate to say it, but Leo is pretty much the opposite of a butterface. He's a butter body.
The web is flooded with pics of his dad bod, and yet, it hasn’t stopped him from landing model #343. Just kidding, but he is in the double digits at least. Page Six recently reported that he’s now into model Camila Morrone, and they even vacationed together in French Polynesia. Even his mom was there, so is that saying something?
A source once told Page Six, "It was a party at this private estate. He was drinking his beer and bragging to these models about how he doesn’t work out."
"The girls were like, ‘Does he think that’s attractive? It’s not like he’s in Titanic shape anymore," they also added.
Absolutely downright brutal, and yet, it didn’t stop those models from hanging around him anyways, did it? Even if it’s true, at least he works out when he needs to for a role, spending the rest of the time enjoying life on his yacht. According to Healthy Celeb, Leonardo followed a strict organic-only diet to get ready for his role in Inception: “As soon as his role was confirmed, without ado, the star immediately got to work and got so much engrossed in torching pounds, that he presented him in the prerequisite body frame even before the start of its shootings.”
13 Chris Pratt: The Reason They Split
I know what you’re thinking: there’s no way that Chris Pratt belongs on this list. His very in shape appearance in his two Guardians of the Galaxy movies, and his recent stint in Avengers: Infinity War have not been lost on me.
But let’s not forget how before he became a Marvel superstar, he landed Anna Farris with his dad bod.
In fact, he once told GQ, “[When I was overweight, I] didn't feel too great about who I was. My bones ached, I had cardiovascular issues, I was unhealthy, I was feeling rotten. But she was so okay with it. Probably in many ways, preferred me that way. I think I was outwardly having more fun. I was more fun to be around, probably. That image that I was casting, to convince people that I was okay, was a really fun person to hang around.
"Now I have less fun. I focus more. She doesn't get to cook for me the way she used to. I was like a great pet fat guy.”
Pratt has come a long way from his former dad bod – 60lbs to be precise. Since shedding the weight, Pratt told Men’s Journal, “It gave me a sense of absolute control.”
Isn’t it funny how she loved him when he was pudgier, but their marriage came crumbling down almost instantly the moment he became more famous than her? Maybe it was just a coincidence, but it could also be said that fame may have gotten to his head.
12 Jay-Z: Still A Multi-Millionaire Though
Sorry to say, but Jay-Z is both a case of a butter body and a butter face. It's a wonder how he ever landed a beauty like Beyoncé. At least, they made some cute kids (thanks to her genetics). Then again, it would appear that he groomed her early. Not only do they have a 12-year difference between the two of them, but in an interview with Seventeen, Bey revealed, “I was 18 when we first met, 19 when we first started dating.”
That means that she was young and impressionable enough to be blindsided by his music, especially once "Bonnie and Clyde" started charting.
With that being said, you would think that he would try everything to keep the mother of his children from leaving, especially considering he is getting up there in age. That just simply hasn’t been the case, as he has instead chosen to put her through the ringer. Even Cosmopolitan put together a handy guide to all the rumors that have been swirling about his infidelities for over a decade already. It all started back in 2005 with Rihanna, then, Rita Ora in 2013, and let’s not forget that infamous 2014 elevator incident.
11 David Harbor: Dad Bod Here To Stay
Placing David Harbor on this list is hard. He was absolutely phenomenal as Hopper in Stranger Things, but the truth simply can’t be ignored. Although he has worked very hard to transform his body for Hellboy, the fact remains that he has a classic case of the dad bod. It’s also clear that it won’t take him long to get back to his pre-Hellboy shape once he is done with the movie. So far, it’s set to be released in 2019, but if all goes well, he might be anticipating a sequel.
In fact, the future Red revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that despite having done Hellboy, “Look, here's the thing, dad bod is here to stay.”
“I did a lot of strength and power training because I felt like the amount of stunts I was doing is crazy, so I wanted to be powerful. But we were fitting the prosthetics while I was shooting Stranger Things, and I wasn't allowed to lose that much weight. Don't worry! The dad bod is back in season three, kids. I'll take care of you!”
Hilarious! His sense of humor is likely why he was able to land the very pretty singer and actress, Alison Sudol. Up until now, she has mostly only focused on her music, but she recently had small roles in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as well as Between Us. David Harbour even dated Julia Stiles back in 2012!
10 Gerard Butler: More Focused On His Guns
Your initial reaction to seeing Gerard Butler being placed in the dad bod category is probably one of confusion. It’s hard to disassociate from his incredibly ripped appearance in 300, but that’s just it. He wanted to look strong, so he wasn’t all that much focused on his stomach.
He once confided to Men’s Health in an interview about the movie: “I wanted to look really strong," says Butler. "I've seen so many actors play these kinds of roles, and you see all this equipment on either a big belly or skinny little arms.”
It worked and we wouldn’t put it past him to have continued strength-training like Arnold and The Rock. He even admitted it himself that once shooting for the movie wrapped up, he abruptly stopped training as the intense routine had his body aching. He’s with the stunning actress, Morgan Brown, now, but he has dated so many beautiful ladies that it’s impossible to name them all, especially since he was undeniably had some on the down-low away from the prying paparazzi eyes. Believe it or not, he has been with Brandi Glanville, Ashley Greene, Jessica Biel, Martina Rajic, Jennifer Aniston, and many others.
9 Chiwetel Ejiofor: Surprising Age Gap
We have been seeing Chiwetel Ejiofor in quite a few top movies recently, from 12 Years a Slave, to Doctor Strange and he is even currently filming, The Lion King and Maleficent 2. Although he’s turning 41 in July and hasn’t had any kids yet, he does have a dad bod that he keeps under wraps. You would be hard-pressed to spot him shirtless at the beach, but it’s obvious through this picture of him going for a run that he does have a dad bod – the tummy is a solid giveaway! So who is he with? None other than model, Frances Aaternir.
Don’t fret if you have never heard of her, she isn’t a Victoria’s Secret model or anything, but she is a beauty. She’s also not even 30 yet.
Back in 2016, Vogue ran an article about her, “Who’s That Girl? Meet the Balmain Model Who Got The Press Talking,” in which they stated that she was 25. We can only assume that she should be about 27 yet.
That means that the couple has a near-15-year age gap between the two of them! But like Gerard, it’s clear that he isn’t all too focused on maintaining abs. His trainer once told LiveStrong how they prioritize the bench press because: “the weight you lift doing a bench press is a marker of your upper-body strength. It recruits chest, shoulders, and triceps, so you can build upper-body mass fast.”
8 Vince Vaughn: He Could Make An Effort
Surprise, Vince Vaughn went fishing out of the Hollywood pond to land his wife, Kyla Weber. Although a few articles have been written about her simply because she is his wife, she is no one famous and is just a real estate agent from Canada. At least, she was, as the couple has allegedly relocated to California, where all the best schools are, according to Female First.
Even after having had two children with the Den of Thieves actor, Kyla Weber is gorgeous and radiates the kind of appeal that any husband would hope for from his wife, both in the bedroom and out.
For his part, he has been rocking his dad bod for quite some time now. He may be 48, but if Hugh Jackman (49), Tom Cruise (55), Jason Statham (50), Daniel Craig (50), Terry Crews (49), and, let’s not forget, The Rock (46), can all find a way to maintain a great non-dad bod, then surely, he can too with a little bit of effort.
But maybe his recent venture into Brazilian jiu-jitsu might whip him into shape. He told Fox Sports, “I really liked the videos and philosophy with the 'bully-proof' stuff so I first came with my daughter and started checking it out. I wanted to take a class and have fun."
7 Adam Sandler: Only Happened Once
He’s one of our all-time favorite funny guys, and, despite his persisting dad bod, he has been able to keep Jackie Sandler from leaving. In fact, they will be celebrating their 15th marriage anniversary this year, which is a Hollywood feat in of itself.
But physique-wise, Adam has never really bothered, although, it’s clear that his wife at least tries. Any time that the two of them hit the beach with their two kids, tabloids don’t hesitate to point out how great she looks, while remaining tight-lipped about his dad bod.
Just last year, the Daily Mail wrote: "His wife of 14 years, Jackie Sandler, looked fabulous in a pastel blue bikini that highlighted her toned legs and taut tummy.”
We have all forgotten about it but back when he starred in You Don’t Mess With The Zohan in 2008, Adam Sandler was actually quite in shape, with a six-pack that he didn’t hesitate to show off. According to Body Height Weight, he had hired a personal trainer to help him out, so perhaps, he may want to give that trainer another call now. We have never seen abs like that on him again, but it’s for certain that his wife wouldn’t mind seeing them again in the bedroom.
6 Seth Rogen: Mistaken Weight Loss
Is Lauren Miller a beauty? While some might look at her picture and merely mumble that "she’s alright," there are many more who wouldn’t hesitate to say that she is indeed beautiful. Whichever side you fall on, we can all agree that it’s still a wonder how Seth Rogen was ever able to land the beautiful in a geeky way actress. As it turns out, they have actually been married for seven lucky years already but don’t have any kids yet.
The same year of their wedding, he actually lost 30lbs for his role in The Green Hornet, but as he told US Magazine, “It’s a sad thing. I gave away all my fat clothes, thinking, 'I won’t need these anymore,' but I do!”
Oopsy Daisy. "I did not do any experimental injections! It's just diet and exercise. It works. Uh, stay fat, people. That's my motto. It's no picnic,” he also added.
It’s not his funniness that is keeping her from leaving though. As she told US Magazine recently, “I just feel incredibly fortunate that when this diagnosis happened to my mom, and it affected my whole family, that Seth didn’t run. He leaned in and really took care of me and listened to me and supported me and my entire family, and was just a really amazing partner.”
5 Simon Cowell: He Won't Admit It
Ready for a laugh? Back in 2011, Simon Cowell told the Daily Mail: “I'll do 500 push ups in a day religiously, and if I can, I like to have a workout. Then, I have a steam and a bath but I always have breakfast in bed.”
If you choked on your drink reading that, I don’t blame you. He made that claim at the time that he was still together with the make-up artist, Mezhgan Hussainy. Although rumors have forever swirled about whether or not he might be gay, Simon Cowell went onto marry Lauren Silverman in 2013 and their son, Eric, was born in 2014. And no, Lauren isn’t related to Sarah Silverman.
Despite his dad bod, Simon Cowell has been flanked by model and model-looking women for a few decades already. Fans may be confused about him, but he seems to have a clear type— as long as she is a beauty, then he will go after her.
With his extensive dating surprise, it’s surprising that he has actually been married for five years already. A huge reason for this might be his son, especially since he appears open to having more kids.
He told The Sun, “You don’t understand what it is like to be a mum or a dad until you have a son or a daughter. It is beyond anything I have ever experienced. It is quite incredible. It does make you, I think, a happier person.”
4 Adrien Grenier: Still Doing Good For Himself
Adrian Grenier is another case of body butter and that’s exactly how he lands the beauties that he does.
There’s no denying his handsome features, but his dad bod can’t be ignored, especially since, at 41 years old, he’s still neither married, nor tied down by any kids.
We haven’t really seen him much since Entourage, but he does appear to be trying to revive his acting career with Affairs of State, coming out sometime in 2018. We’ll see if he goes for any more movies or TV shows after that, but so far, he doesn’t seem to have secured anything.
He does appear to have secured Jordan Roemmel. According to the Daily Mail, she’s a project manager for Aero Pioneer Group, and although no one appears to know her age, she definitely appears way younger than he is.
He has always dated very beautiful women though. According to Ranker, he has been with the model, Sarah Stephens, as well as Courtney Bingham, Ashley Greene, Emily Caldwell, Isabel Lucas, etc. A clear trend is evident as nearly all his ex-girlfriends are gorgeous brunettes, which leads us to wonder, who has more fun? He did deviate from the trend at one point, turning instead to Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Melissa Keller, and even Melissa Joan Hart.
3 Jon Hamm: Might Do Him Some Good
Lots of actors have butter bodies, which isn't all that surprising, considering how much good looks in the facial department matter on the big screen. Quite surprisingly, Jon Hamm is another one of those. Although his perfect features and even stylish clothes all contribute towards lots of men swooning over the Mad Men star, he's still not the best beach buddy (or should we say body).
He’s 47 years old now, but he spent a good chunk of his life in the arms of the actress, Jennifer Westfeld. She may be older than most other girlfriends and wives on this list, but she still continues to be a beauty.
The pair were unsuccessful in making it to their twenty-year anniversary, unfortunately. They split in 2017, but Jon Hamm hasn’t been spotted with anyone else. In fact, he told ET Online that being single “sucks.”
“It's fine. It's hard. It's hard to be single after being together for a long time. It's really hard. It sucks."
Very sad indeed, but maybe the separation will be the kick in the butt he needs to get in better shape.
He’s in “ok” shape with his dad bod, but can you imagine if he did a couple of ab exercises?
2 Vin Diesel: He Accepts It
Everyone has seen the above pic of an old-looking Vin Diesel a million times over. The usual six-packed actor shocked fans when he was spotted looking as middle-aged as he did (he is 50, after all). Although he has had bouts of looking amazingly fit for Fast and Furious and XXX, he is also known for yo-yo-ing relentlessly between a dad bod and a drool-worthy bod. Like most actors, he has trouble maintain the intensive physique once shooting wraps up.
Back when pics of his dad bod first went viral, he hit back at critics by telling Complex magazine, “It's like, dad bod goes viral. Like really? I mean, a) I don't have to be in front of the camera for a couple months and b) I really am a dad.”
“I'm okay because I've had the best body in New York City for decades. 'There is no love lost there for me. I sing on my Facebook. You don't get more dangerous than that, right? I was a bouncer at 17. I play fat roles sometimes,” he also added.
Out of everyone, only one doesn’t care— his wife, Paloma Jiménez, who he has been married to for over a decade. Not only is she 16 years younger than him (we’ll let you do the math on how old she was when they met), but she is also undeniably stunning.
1 Jason Sudeikis: He's Got Moves Though
Everyone couldn’t have been more shocked when Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde started dating in 2011. So how exactly did he win her heart? It certainly wasn’t with his dad bod.
Listen up gentlemen with a dad bod, this is how you landed a beautiful woman like Olive Wilde. She revealed to Howard Stern in an interview: “I remember I was on the dance floor and everyone seemed very happy. They just seemed really happy and I was just kind of standing there. Just the greatest line of all time that Jason had. He came up to me and he said: 'whatever you’re looking for, you don’t need it."'
“He played it really cool,” adding, “When he got my number, he didn’t text me for a month. I was like ‘this is incredible’. I was on the hook."
Asked about how the relationship heated up, she confessed, “He literally didn’t kiss me until the fourth date. When he finally kissed me, and I was like completely head over heels.”
She even added that she could have made a move, but chose instead to take the backseat as: “Two can play this game.” Incredible!
