Example #1: Austin Stowell (Dolphin Tale, The Secret Life of the American Teenager)
Why He’s So Hot: Just look at him. Ok, seriously though, because he’s a huge supporter of the Humane Society and working to raise awareness around the country. “These awards are unlike any other. Not to say we shouldn’t celebrate awards shows that feature actors, but tonight we’re simply celebrating the animals. We’re here to be their voice because they don’t have one.” And he means it–Austin rescued two old English and American mix bulldogs, named Gus and Jacques.
Bonus Points: At the after-party, he helped show me how to save the battery life in my new iPhone by deleting open apps (I know this on my laptop, but had no clue when it came to my phone). Plus, he’s a huge baseball fan. Austin, I’m telling you this now: If the Yankees meet the Cardinals in the World Series, we’re going.
