Shameless Objectification: Sam Claflin

The fit one from The Hunger Games is back in Hammer horror The Quiet Ones. Alas, he's a little bit married, though...

Liam Hemsworth’s nice to look at, and Josh Hutcherson’s fine, but let’s be honest, Sam Claflin was hands down the best bit of man candy in the last The Hunger Games film as former tribute Finnick Odair. And if YA film adaptations aren’t your thing, you can watch him gradually morph into Matthew MacFadyen in Any Human Heart, or gradually morph into Michael Kitchen in *White Heat instead. *

Anyway, he’s back on our (big) screens, and in our hearts with new Hammer horror The Quiet Ones (came out this weekend – it’s blooming terrifying, apparently), so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do some shameless objectifying.

Vital Statistics

Age: 27

From: Ipswich

Significant Other? Sorry girls and guys, he’s very happily married to actress Laura Haddock (the incredibly pretty one who inexplicably gets off with Simon Bird in The Inbetweeners Movie).

**Reasons why we love him: **

He was obsessed with the Spice Girls back in the day. Speaking to GQ he said, ‘I definitely collected every one of those postcards you could buy and I was obsessed with Posh Spice. I literally collected them all and they're still around in my mum’s house. No shame!’ No shame at all, Sam, no shame at all.

If you think he looks a bit familiar, but can’t really place where you know him from, that’s because one of his earliest roles was as that missionary who falls in love with a mermaid in the third Pirates Of The Caribbean film. Remember? No?

As soon as he met his wife Laura at an audition, he called his agent proclaiming that he had just met the woman he wanted to marry. He then randomly bumped into her the following night on the way home from a party. IMAGINE what it must be like to have Sam Claflin handed to you on a plate. Just imagine.
