He’s hot, smokin’ hot. He’s Matthew Terry, the model who was actually able to distract Super Bowl viewers with that steamy Calvin Klein Concept underwear ad. The New Jersey native — who still lives there — is also the face of Dark Obsession, CK’s latest men’s scent.
Your good news of the day: You can meet the man in the flesh. Terry will be at Macy’s Dadeland Mall 6 to 8 p.m. on the first floor (follow your nose) Friday. TGIF? Yes! We spoke to Terry before his stop, and, sorry, but we found out: he has a girlfriend (the lucky gal remains unidentified).
What is it like being you?
I normally wake up around 9:30 a.m. I eat a healthy breakfast then check-in with friends about going to the gym. I usually clock around an hour and a half to two hours at the gym, followed by a quick, healthy lunch. Most afternoons I hang out with friends, play sports or enjoy my personal time. I try to eat dinner by 7 p.m. and then go to bed early.
How much time do you spend at the gym?
When preparing for a job, I do an hour and a half of circuit training, a full body workout. No heavy weights, just medium to light weights in high repetition.
Do people get intimidated to talk to you?
I don’t think so, because I am pretty approachable.
Have you ever been obsessed (not darkly) with someone?
I’ve never really been obsessed with anyone. However, I do have random celebrity crushes here and there.
Which celeb would you want to fantasy date?
I used to have a major crush on Shawn Johnson. I had an immediate attraction when I saw her gymnastics routine at the Olympics. To me, she represents the all-American, girl-next-door.
What is your guilty pleasure, food wise?
That’s easy: dark chocolate covered almonds and Keebler® E.L. Fudge® Double Stuffed cookies.
If you were stranded on a desert island, what would you want to bring?
My guitar, acoustic drum set and some weights.
What are your hobbies?
I love music — I play both the drums and guitar, and enjoy going to EDM [Electronic Dance Music] concerts. I enjoy all sports, particularly basketball and football.
Do you get recognized now?
Yes. It’s truly an amazing experience. At times, it feels completely surreal. Once in a while, I do get approached when someone recognizes me, which is flattering and fun.
