Josh Duhamel - "Best Life" August 2007

Josh Duhamel -

Josh Duhamel is the August 2007 cover boy for Best Life magazine. The Transformers star is ready to show to Hollywood that he’s more than just a hunk, he’s an actor.

  • On showing Hollywood he’s more than just a pretty face: “It always feels like I have to prove myself to be more than what people think they see. That’s part of what I’m fighting right now. People don’t know what you’re capable of until you actually do it.”
  • On his love, Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas: “She’s a real total star. I’m more subdued than that. I’d rather sneak up on people. But that’s what makes us work. We have similar fundamental values. We both grew up in similar families. She’s just got a great soul.”
  • His philosophy on relationships and career: “Let’s not f*** it all up! [chuckles] There’s still so much more I want to do. Before it was about gaining confidence. Now it’s about gaining some respect for what I do. Get that, and everything you want will come along with it because people will want to work with you.”
  • On how he got his Transformers gig: “In the second season of Las Vegas, I had this heavy episode in which my character comes back from Iraq. Everyone in my platoon had died except for me, so I put a lot into it. I wanted it to be more than what was on the page. Then I heard Steven Spielberg was pushing for me to get this role in Transformers [Spielberg is the executive producer]. I called his office and told his assistant who I was. She put Steven right on the phone. I said, ‘I don’t know what I did to have any pull from you, but thank you.’ And he said, ‘Well, I was thinking about that episode you did on Vegas, when you came back from the war.’ I was like, God, it’s so true! Nothing you do falls on deaf ears. Somebody is always watching.”

  • inhirnamy137

    Nice personality… and HOT, He should of been a Calvin Klein underwear model…Fergie got very lucky. Especially with the former meth addiction and that leather face.

  • Joshfan

    Facial hair does wonders for some men…Josh is one of those men. He’s so much HOTTER to me with the scrub on his face. It gives him a sexier, more matured look….and it works really well on him. He’s sexy anyway, but the whiskers push his already smokin’ looks right over the top. What he sees in Fergie??…i’ll never know. She must be an absolute angel – on the inside.

  • elodie

    thank !so hot!!
    hey jared,josh wil be on Jay leno this wednesday and on regis and kelly on 3 july!i hope yo can put the clip!!

  • Annaleise

    Too cute for words. I loved him with Nikki Cox, (I think that’s her name), on Las Vegas. I love him with Fergie too. I think they make the cutest couple in Hollywood. Thanks Jared!

    I give Fergie more cred now because she landed a guy like this. She seems so over the top and he’s this nice kid from the midwest.
    I’ve met him several times in our Santa Monica Store and he is the nicest guy. So sweet… totally unpretentious.
