Those eyes though! Billy Magnussen, Source :

Billy Magnussen is a very attractive and talented actor. His magnetic blue eyes and his million-dollar smile have won many hearts. He is best known for playing Rapunzel’s love interest in a 2014 movie Into the Woods. As if being handsome was not enough, his “tight leather” dress up and "prince charming" role overwhelmed most audiences. Not one admirer who did not appreciate his athletic build in the movie!

Billy Magnussen is also a talented music enthusiast. He has performed with bands like The Dash and Reserved for Roundtree. More exciting news for most gay dudes, Billy is occasionally surrounded by gay rumors. He is extremely secretive about his love life and has starred in few gay-themed plays. While this might just be a publicity stunt, it is never too bad to hope, is it?

Hot Billy Magnussen received an extensive popularity from his 2014 movie

If you haven’t already watched Into the Woods, Billy plays a phenomenal prince charming in the movie. This 2014 Rob Marshall directed fantasy movie is an epitome of gorgeousness, sexual heat, and romanticism, partly because Billy appeared in tight leather pants and would not hesitate much to flaunt his build. Billy remarked in an interview later “Those pants were so into me”. Hell yeah they were!

Billy further remarked, “riding horses, singing, and wearing leather pants? That’s a party!” Just that we were not particularly prepared for all that in one movie! Into the Woods was a fairy tale adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood,  Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel and Cinderella. Billy played Rapunzel’s prince charming, alongside the beautiful MacKenzie Mauzy.

One of the few scenes that had fans “tongues wagging” was when Billy and  Chris Pine, who played Cindrella’s prince charming, were “frolicking in the water and ripping their shirts to reveal their sculpted chests”. Magazines went further to claim that “Magnussen’s tush in tight leather pants” was what made this fairy tale adaptation so special!

According to the IMDB, Into the Woods secured six award nominations and a win at the 2014 Satellite Awards.

Billy started his acting career through a 2007 Broadway production - The Ritz. The play was gay themed and revolved around a character, a businessman to be specific, that "took refuge in a gay bathhouse from a homicidal mobster”.

Some of Billy’s noteworthy projects include Twelve of the year 2010, The Lost Valentine of the year 2011, 2012 Surviving Family, 2014 Revenge of the Green Dragons, 2014 Disney production of Into the Woods and the 2015 release - St. James Place.  He performed alongside Kathy Bates in 2016 The Great Gilly Hopkins.

A versatile actor, Billy is not a new name in the American entertainment industry. In addition to his exceptional acting pursuits, he is known for his musical endeavors. He performs occasionally as a bass player and a songwriter in the New York City based band, The Dash. Currently, he is involved with yet another musical group called the Reserved for Roundtree.  

Billy Magnussen was born on 20th April of the year 1985. He was born as William Gregory Magnussen in Woodhaven, Queens, New York.

Don’t be surprised if handsome Billy Magnussen comes out a gay!

Many a time, speculations have arisen over Billy’s sexual orientation. Owing to the fact that he is extremely secretive about his romantic life, it is not surprising that our gay dudes have high hopes on Billy. One of the most compelling evidence regarding Billy’s homosexuality is that he has starred in a few gay-themed plays – The Ritz, and Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. His sensual performance in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike earned his crew a Tony nomination.

Provided that Billy would rather not address his romantic life, it was only natural for audiences to speculate that he might not be straight. After all, it is easier to avoid questions when you know you are bound to spark controversies.

Lastly, one more reason behind his suspected "homosexuality", if you hadn’t gotten lost in his blue eyes yet, Billy is gorgeous.  He is a well-dressed actor and stands five feet eleven. 

Billy’s dashing feature must have evolved from his teenage athletics interest. He played football, soccer, hockey and wrestling. Living up to the fact that he was raised by kickboxer father, Billy had to discontinue his gym workouts after he suffered a minor accident. In an interview, Billy recalled that he joined theater production because “the girls [were] there”.Now that he is an established actor, we have no shame whatsoever in thanking God for what prevented him from going to the gym.

Needless to mention, if you seek to remain updated with Billy’s sensual snaps, make sure you follow him on @BillyMagnussen.
