Sex Crime

“Hot Felon” turned professional model Jeremy Meeks photographed by Steven Klein

If you saw him in a lineup, you’d say, “Officer, that’s him — the man who stole my heart.” And the precinct would collectively roll their eyes and wish you hadn’t come.

But that’s the kind of corny material that comes to mind staring into “Hot Felon” Jeremy Meeks’ glacial baby blues. All common sense goes right out the window.

In 2014, the Californian’s chiseled mugshot went viral after Meeks was arrested on felony weapons charges. It’s not difficult to see why:

As we’ve previously reported, Meeks managed to turn that mugshot into a professional modeling career, signing with White Cross Management and strutting his stuff at the Philipp Plein Show for New York Fashion Week back in February.

Now, he’s been snapped in a series of images by legendary photographer Steven Klein, the man behind iconic campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein, and Dolce & Gabbana. (Klein also regularly produces Madonna’s concert backdrop videos and directed Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” video. )

    This guy is absolutely not hot. I’ve never understood what anyone sees in him.

    • John

      I agree. I don’t understand why he’s considered hot. I guess it’s? just his eyes.

    • niles

      I’m so glad you have appointed yourself the Grand Arbiter of Hotness.

    • isxios

      I think if he did not have the tattoos he would be hot, and his eyes are just magnificently beautiful. As for the rest of it, well, people find heat in different things, so, yeah, he’s hot to a lot of people. That isn’t a difficult concept, is it?

  • Hussain-TheCanadian


  • xSushi

    This dude isn’t hot at all!

    He has a lot of favored elements / dark skin, light eyes, fairly worked out, tattoos… but somehow instead of edge or attractiveness he just comes off gross in every photo.

    • Captain Obvious

      “Dark skin” is favored? He’s actually light skinned though…


    He is absolutely stunning in the right lighting and pose but otherwise there’s something off about his proportions (excepting *that* proportion.. which is out-of-proportion and admirably so! )

  • Eldred

    I think he’s gorgeous. This may confuse the lot of you that think your opinion is fact.

  • Prax07

    I like bad boys as much as the next guy, this guy though, no…just no. He’s not attractive in the least, looks to me like he’d slit your throat and run off with your tv.

  • mauikamaaina

    Stunning eyes …. BUT for me, a guy needs more than that to be considered HOT!
    Wish him well on his modeling career, but if that doesn’t work out, I hope he can still live a productive and positive life.

  • Dougie67

    He’s hott, but just too many tattos for my taste. I like looking at your natural skin without excessive added art. However, I certainly wouldn’t turn him away!! LOL!

  • tham

    I thought models suppose to model clothes…I really don’t understand this new business of being a model of nothing.

  • Blackceo

    From the neck up, zaddy!!!! His eyes are beautiful and he’s got great cheekbones. Even though I’ve gotten over my rigidness about tattoos, they need not be on your neck like that. That is (for me) what would separate you being just a booty call vs someone I could date seriously. That is just trashy looking to me no matter how attractive you are. Like…I can’t even put you in a tux and take you to the opera with all that mess on your neck. If they can be hidden I’m good, but if you have them somewhere that they are more than likely going to be seen regularly…side piece.

  • ddevine

    Beautiul full lips, gorgeous eyes, a perfect jawline and cheekbones, excellent nose and very fine body. Not EVERYBODY has to be a thin lipped white guy with a brown beard these days to be hot.

    • Blackceo

      *insert tea sipping gif*


  • Rex Huskey

    he aint all that. thug criminal…. if you like that sort of trash.

  • Neonegro

    He has good features and is a good looking man.

    He is mostly white, so won’t get me hard.

  • kiriakis1

    One tattoo (maybe two)? Sexy.

    Enough tattoos to fill a magazine from cover to cover? Nasty

  • phakedraparks

    Not white enough for these queens.

  • Mo Bro

    I doubt his victims—as well as any civil person with any degree of lawfulness—find him as impressive as you shallow droolers do.

  • John

    Great eyes, lips and nice body. Like most younger people too much ink…Not sure what he is hired to “model” but I am sure I am not the target market they are marketing too. To each their own.

  • Bob LaBlah

    Be patient folks. He WILL be back. I say no more.

    • John

      Back where? In jail?

    • Bob LaBlah

      John, I’ll put it like this: I can see him living with an older man in his late sixtes or early seventies whose only mistake was “thinking” this guy was a “nice” guy and cared for him. Once the money spigot gets cut off……………as I said, be patient. He’ll be back on the front pages soon. My prophecy is literally written all over him. He is cute but I see a guy who is DEEPLY troubled as in the type you one-night-stand and send him on his way if your smart.

    • Bob LaBlah

      Chris, what raises an eyebrow with those pics are none being inside the home. The one by the christmas tree is the dead giveaway. Look closely at those curtains and how close the window is to the corner of the room. No mansion I know of would have a window that close and curtains that shabby. Its all smoke and mirrors. You can rent anything these days and that includes a Maserati or a quick pic in front of a mansion.

  • Captain Obvious

    He’s gorgeous in photos but like every other model he looks kinda alien in the wrong light. He’s definitely a MODEL which is what some of these haters don’t understand. There aren’t many models who don’t look weird outside of the model setting. They photograph well which means they have really sharp angles and skinny bodies.

  • money718

    His eyes are actually a turnoff for me. But oh well…

  • Roy Moss

    To each their own but I find this guy absolutely repulsive. l the ink is just trashy.

    • Roy Moss

      That should read “I think all the ink is just trashy”.
