Sure, the idea of someone following you around (and, you know, protecting you) at all times sounds like a drag, but considering the supreme level of hotness that celebrity bodyguards have reached, we wouldn't totally object. Don't agree? Just take a moment to think about how ridiculously in shape one must be to protect precious cargo like Jennifer Lopez or Beyoncé. Ahead, 20 celebrities who are escorted by the most attractive bodyguards of all time.
Meet one of the Beckham family’s sexiest bodyguards. Other than protecting Victoria, David, and co., he also does really cute things like ice skate with Harper.
During the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Bella Hadid leaned on her dashing bodyguard as she made a quick shoe adjustment.
One look at this photo and it becomes clear why Adele’s bodyguard has become a bit of a celebrity himself. Peter Van der Veen has worked with the singer since 2010 and has since amassed an understandably large fan base for his undeniable good looks (he’s even got a fan account). As one Twitter user put it: "#PeterTheBodyguard is eye candy all day...he can guard my body anytime!"
There's little known about one of the bodyguards that's been with Rihanna since 2015, but one thing's for sure: He’s hot as hell. Here, in 2015, he’s pictured guiding the singer through New York City while looking like an absolute snack (a snack with slightly looser pants than we'd like, but fine, we'll take it).
In late 2017, Kristen Stewart and her handsome bodyguard stepped out in Manhattan looking like one hell of a duo. Are we the only ones hoping they coordinated their outfits?!
Although Gigi Hadid has already proven she needs approximately zero bodyguards to defend herself (remember when she elbowed that fan in the face after he picked her up?!), one of the dudes she has on staff is smoldering. In 2016, he was pictured escorting Hadid around New York City.
It just feels right that Jennifer Lawrence has a hot bodyguard. Here she is in 2015 with her dapperly dressed guard following closely behind.
During the European leg of her “Witness” tour, Katy Perry was spotted in Paris with this super hot bodyguard in tow. However, we'd suggest Perry make this guard walk in font of her (imagine the view, Katy!).
The Kardashian-Jenner clan have too many bodyguards on staff to count, but the tattooed hottie that accompanied Kim on a New York City jaunt in 2018 is a personal favorite.
Does Lady Gaga’s hot-ass guard look familiar? Well, he should, considering he also happens to be Adele’s bodyguard (yes, the one-and-only Peter Van der Veen). In 2018, Van der Veen helped the singer into her car in New York City.
Considering she’s known to have lines of people waiting outside of her Tribeca apartment, Taylor Swift requires a solid team of bodyguards. In 2016, this bearded cutie trotted behind Swift during a New York outing.
At the 2016 premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Amy Adams walked the red carpet with the cutest, baby-faced bodyguard who gave off total secret service vibes with that earpiece.
As one member of the Marie Claire team so wonderfully put it, Kendall Jenner’s bearded guard “looks like the fourth Hemsworth brother who's been doing five semesters in Alaska.”
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
For once, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds weren’t the hottest people in the room—in 2018, the couple were escorted as they left the Guggenheim by a noticeably attractive guard.
In 2017, a chiseled guard walked Cara Delevingne (who looked equipped to kick anyone's ass herself) into the CHANEL Haute Couture show.
