10 Instagram Posts that Prove Luke Evans is Our Favorite Zaddy

Jake Myers READ TIME: 5 MIN.

Out actor Luke Evans may have played a daddy battling Billy Porter for custody of his 8-year-old boy the recent drama "Our Son," but his Instagram profile solidifies him as our favorite zaddy.

Beyond his prolific queer roles and outspoken opinions about gay-Hollywood, Luke knows exactly how to entertain us on the gram. Not only does he serve us fashion (Evans co-founded a brand called BDXY with his partner Fran Tomas and the actor's longtime stylist Christopher Brown), he also knows when the garments should come off (bestowing us lots and lots of shirtless torso).

Originally starring on the London stage, the hunky Welsh actor shined in West End productions like "Rent" and "Miss Saigon" before quickly becoming a familiar face (okay...body too) in film and television.

Besides roles in blockbusters like the "Clash of the Titans" (2010), J.R.R. Tolkien's "Hobbit" series (2013-2014), and playing the iconic Gaston in the live-action "Beauty and the Beast" (2017), Evans has made a name for himself in various queer roles, having no shame about being an out and proud gay actor in Hollywood.

In fact, Evans has been vocal about the fact that the right person should get the role, no matter if they are gay or straight, reminding us that he starred in about 30-something non-gay roles before playing queer.

Luke says he finally found the gay role he was waiting for in "Our Son," and also played the gay psilocybin-guzzling retreat guest in Nicole Kidman's bonkers limited series "Nine Perfect Strangers" (we wouldn't mind if he came back for another round when the show returns for a second season...just sayin')!

Most recently, Evans played Dan Levy's beloved husband (and author), who tragically dies in an accident, in Levy's directorial debut, "Good Grief."

Acting (and singing!) chops aside, the 44-year-old actor knows how to give us sexy, Zaddy energy, whether he's on a film shoot, or lounging on vacation. Let's gawk at some of our favorite posts.

When Luke comments about his "beast" of a Landrover, who "liked getting dirty," we can't help but wonder if he's also talking about himself? We'll let you be the judge.

As Luke bids us goodnight, he grants us both a bicep and a pit shot. Is it surprising that we're suddenly feeling ready for bed, too?

"You drive all your gay fans crazy lol," one fan commented. Ya think??

Are you feeling woozy from sea-sickness? Or is it just this skimpy bathing suit shot? It's hard to know if we should gaze at Luke's surprising leg tattoo, or...something else that the camera seems to be zooming in on, but either way, we may need some Dramamine.

Sexy, AND he loves dogs? I mean...

As Luke celebrates #internationaldogday, we've never wished more that we too were furry with 4 legs.

We're especially into his love of the wiener.

OK, so maybe you weren't into bondage or dungeons before, but you might be now after seeing Luke wrapped in a bunch of heavy metal chains while working out. "Let's get it pumpin!!," he comments.

You don't have to ask us twice.

Luke appears to be channeling his inner Patrick Swayze in this "Ghost" themed pottery post, where it looks like he just might be naked under that apron. Not knowing makes it that much hotter, but a creative man who can make a cute little yellow mug on a pottery wheel? Even sexier.

This black and white pool day close-up is making us need to take a plunge ourselves. Sunglasses like a movie-star, a little scruff, and just the right amount of chest hair. Hiiii, daddy!

It's important to feature all angles of this beautiful man, so we give you...the shoulder. Oh, the Bangkok skyline behind him is kinda nice too.

As Meghan Thee Stallion sings, "Body-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody-ody."

Some guys can't pull off a Speedo. Not the case here.

Last but not least, we started off dirty, so we'll end dirty. This muddy white wife-beater is giving us all the feels. Even with a shirt on, Luke Evans does not disappoint.

"The dirt maketh the man," Luke writes in his caption. We couldn't have said it better.

Luke is giving "fashion" in this classic tux. The most liked comment? "Btw ... this shot is really scrrrrreeaaming "NEXT JAMES BOND" 🫠🫠🫠🫠😍"

We can't help but notice the Daniel Craig vibes happening here.

Does this pic leave you feeling..."shaken, or stirred?"

Luke launched his fashion brand in none other than Ibiza, where this stunning image was taken.

The comment explains, "Luke is wearing "The Focus" baseball cap in black, "The Actor" tee in black (medium) and "The Atmos" swim brief in black (large)." had us at "large."

This photo announcing Luke's fashion brand just screams old Hollywood, classic glamour. The caption explains that the inspiration for the brand came when Luke and his partners went, "deep diving on YouTube and Google for inspiration and we all kept migrating back to the '60s and '70s."

The team "scoured photos of celebrities such as Steve McQueen, Marlon Brando and Harrison Ford and were "enamored" by style that has never really gone out of fashion. And so that's where our inspiration came from - Old Hollywood classic."

A classic Hollywood star, he is.
