I have to say, the slicked hair back really works for Douglas Booth. It shows off his big luscious pillowy lips even more. Poor Hailee Steinfeld. It must’ve been torture kissing those things take after take while filming Romeo and Juliet… NOT!!!

In Flaunt magazine’s latest issue, The Dye Issue: Denim Never Forgives (#129), the publication taps the dangerously good-looking 21-year-old for a sizzling editorial snapped by Hunter & Gatti. Mark my words, this kid is going to be the next big thing. He’s the epitome of “heartthrob.”

Check out the rest of his photos below, along with a few quotes from his interview where he talks about following Leonardo DiCaprio’s Romeo footsteps.

On Following Leo Dicaprio’s Romeo Footsteps

“I didn’t take the part deliberately to follow in his footsteps. I think it’s just a coincidence, but just to be mentioned in the same sentence as him is a compliment, I suppose. I saw that film [Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet] a long time ago and it’s amazing and DiCaprio is amazing in it, but they’re totally different films made by totally different filmmakers. We all know what Baz Lurmann is as a filmmaker. He’s very visually arresting. That film is like a big long MTV music video. It’s amazing and it’s fantasy and it’s glossy, but I think our film has a different feel. Julian Fellowes decided to set in the real place, so we filmed in Verona, Rome, and Mantua. I think the Italian landscape was a large character in the movie. It had such a personality.”

On Admiring Leo

“He is someone who has made interesting choices. He doesn’t make a million movies; he makes movies he wants to make with filmmakers he wants to work with. I respect him, and I respect the way he conducts himself. He’s very low-key. There was a time when all people would talk about were his looks and that he was a heartthrob and this and that, but actually, by making clever choices and delivering great performances, working hard, being in amazing films, and keeping himself out of that world, he doesn’t need it. I think that’s the way to do it.”

On Working Behind The Scenes

“Not right now. I’m still learning how to act, so that’s something that is all very much in the future—to become involved in the industry in an interesting way and branch out and produce things that I’m not starring in. It’s good not to have too much freedom, in the sense that if you start trying to create all your own work then you’re missing out on everyone else’s genius.”
