Djimon Hounsou - Calvin Klein Ads

Blood Diamond actor Djimon Hounsou is featured in the new ads for Calvin Klein Underwear, which were shot by photographer Peter Lindbergh in the Palm Springs desert.

This is first time the brand, launched in 1982, has used an African model in its ad. The CKU ads are also a throwback to the original Calvin Klein Underwear campaign, shot by photographer Bruce Weber back in the 1980s.

“I regularly watch how much, when and what I eat,” Djimon told the NY Post. “It really becomes a daily journey. You just have to do it – get up, eat something, go to the gym – so you can burn as much as you can and look lean. It’s pretty challenging.”

Djimon, 43, has recently been seeing the dynamo director of Baby Phat fashions Kimora Lee Simmons.

  • Myra

    HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!! I love this man :)

  • Maria

    This BLACK MAN IS MINE, MINE, MINE!!!! I knew about him years ago when he was modelling for French mags, and fell in love with him immediately. Gladiator came along and he got noticed big time. So, if anyone out there is trying to make a play for MY BLACK MAN, FORGET IT!!!!!! This New Yorker claimed him a long time ago!! LOL

    Those lips, those eyes, those legs, that arse!!! YEAH BABY!!!! Where’s the oil, I’d like to oil that man from head to toe — going slowly on that middle — if you get my meaning!!!

    God, I need a cold shower real bad!!!

  • ligaya

    Djimon was in Janet Jackson’s video – what a smile, what everything. When was that? I either saw Djimon first in that video or as the star in Amistad.

    :lol: hey Maria, I know he is your man, but girl he is fine as hell, and I am not trying to claim him, he is all yours but girl he is hot

  • anony

    Hmmm…surprisingly he is not packing heat ;p

  • Bit me

    damn.. what a man

  • Diana

    I remember that video … I think he sort of stole it from Janet and in Gladiator …. he is such a great actor… and now… a sex symbol? And he is a bit over 40, no? WOW

  • mel

    I know he is a black man but is there any need to dip him in black paint as well?

  • Lolly

    42 and hawt! Go Boy!

  • http://deleted flower

    hmmm….. he’s hot!!

  • Lookwhaticando

    Now that is one hot man

  • Sharon

    excuse me maria, but i claimed him since “love will never do without you” video, eventhough i was a preteen back then. hahaha!!!!

  • funny

    lol @ #19

    he is not dipped in black paint more like creme was sprayed on him and then rubbed in.

    anyhow im glad someone in hollywood can admit that they go to the gym and watch what they eat since a lot of actors just happenly to be born the way they look now ;). i have much respect for him. i wish some of the female actors would admit to working out i think it would possible change the way a lot of young girls and older women feel about themselves. but i wont hold my breath. he looks beautiful and its well deserved

  • magnus

    reminds me of Seinfeld when Kramer poses for CK.

  • Mimi

    That’s why it says ‘beauty is in the eyes of the beholder!’

  • Longtime Fan/Lurker

    Maria…woman take a seat…this man has been mine for the begining of time. He is mine…okay

    Take it for a fellow New Yorker.

    Djmon is finer in person and so soft spoken.

    To all of you who don’t see the beauty of this man..please…please..please..have you eyes check. Beauty is not meant for a classical look only. There are different forms of beauty and this man is beautiful.

  • Longtime Fan/Lurker

    OMG..all I want to do is lick him from head to toe…my sexy dark chocolate..oh….oh….my…..

    Simmer down, Maria! I told you there would be a WWE-style Smackdown over the Black Man! I’m going to be contacting Madison Square Garden to see what their rental fee is…

    BTW – Djimon…dude…you can do sooooooooo much better than the LezboTranny!

  • angelah

    Da…da damnNN! and he’s 43?! I’m not even going to bother lining up, I’ll just ogle from a distance jk.

  • Passing Through

    I cannot believe this man is 43 years old! Look at that body! He’s obviously got great genes to go along with strong discipline!

    I know he is a black man but is there any need to dip him in black paint as well?

    +++++++++

    That’s not paint! It’s baby oil. It’s a bodybuilders trick to make the muscle stand out and look even more defined.

  • Aleezah

    Oh my! Go and rent “In America” and just drool! This is one foine man.

    I think he is one sexy mofo. The one guy that just might be a little hotter than Beckham.

  • 2985

    SUPER SEXY!!!!! WOW…

  • Maria

    Sharon/Longtime Lurker:

    This man has been mine since BEBORE Janet video, before Gladiator, before Amestad — PERIOD!!! I was in Paris years ago and picked up this mag and saw this GORGEOUS BLACK MAN in suit and from that moment on I was HOOKED!! So, HANDS OFF PEOPLE! THE MAN IS MINE, MINE, MINE.

    From what I’ve heard he’s a very nice person. Don’t know what he sees in ‘what’s her name’, but hoping his brain clears up soon and he dumps the slag.

    PT: Oh, we’re talking ‘All Out Brawl’ over this one. HA! HA!

    BLACK PAINT? Who said that? That’s oil ladies, O….I….L. Now, why couldn’t I have gotten that job. It would have been the best trip my hands ever had!!!! LOL
