Whoever’s idea this was deserves a raise. The Bear star Jeremy Allen White stripped down in a steamy ad for Calvin Klein. Obviously, The Bear is one of the hottest shows on TV. Season 2 dropped a few months ago, and Season 3 is reportedly coming to FX/Hulu in 2024. Needless to say, Jeremey Allen White is one of the hottest new actors out right now. Calvin Klein wasted no time capitalizing on his recent fame.

The Bear

The Bear is about a young chef who inherits his family’s sandwich shop after his older brother’s death. He comes home to Chicago to run it, leaving behind his world of working in a Michelin-star restaurant. He is left to deal with his brother’s unresolved debts, a rundown kitchen, and an unruly staff while dealing with his own pain and family trauma.

To prepare for the role in The Bear, Jeremy attended classes at the Institute of Culinary Education. He went alongside his co-star Ayo Edebiri. The role has won him a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy, and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series. He was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in 2023.

Jeremy Allen White For Calvin Klein

Jeremy’s thoughts on being a new heart-throb? “I didn’t see this in my future necessarily,” he said, sheepishly. “Who grows up thinking, Yeah, I’ll be in a Calvin Klein campaign?” To prepare for the role, he said, he ran, jumped rope, and did calisthenics. Ate plenty of fish.

He joins the ranks of some pretty famous former Calvin Klein models such as Mark Wahlberg, Justin Bieber, Jamie Dornan, Djimon Hounsou, Shawn Mendes, and more.
