John Abraham: I don’t stick my butt out!
John Abraham, who has just been voted the Sexiest Man in Asia for 2008 in a poll conducted by a leading British Asian weekly, is on top of the world. Some time ago, in a similar poll run by a large and popular Hollywood network globally to find the World’s Top 25 Sexiest Men, John was placed at No. 7. “From being among the top in the world to top in Asia is superb,” admitted the Bollywood hottie, “the air is really nice up here!”
He’s never really taken the “sexy” tag seriously. “I don’t mean to deride or demean anybody,” said John, “and while it’s an honour and feels great, the important thing is that hard work has got me here more than just my physicality. I smile and accept the praise today, tomorrow is another day, I try to be normal and don’t stick my butt out unnecessarily!”
But more than anything else, what has kicked the hot star of Dostana is that his “common, middle class mentality looks sexy to the world”. Said John simply, “People who know me don’t think I’m sexy… they know I’m a regular guy. But the big thing is that if John Abraham can do it, people should feel good… because what’s stopping them from doing it too?”
Deep in his heart, though, John Abraham is proud and happy to be rated Asia’s Sexiest Man. “It’s nice to be liked by all ages and genders,” he said, “though I turn red when little girls of 12 and 13 say I’m so hot! It’s embarrassing but also beautiful. And what can I do, sexy is a part of their lingo!”
