Sexiest Bones Star David Boreanaz

April 01, 2009

We could spend an entire issue on the sexiness that is David Boreanaz. The Italian features. The soulful eyes. The lean bod. But those are all surface goodies, and even the man with such an enviable outside knows it’s what’s on the inside that matters most.
“It’s about being really comfortable in one’s own skin,” says the 39-year-old married father of one (soon to be two), confessing that he actually feels sexiest when working that old-school vibe he wears so well. “Whether it’s putting on a suit and stepping out like Sinatra and Dean Martin did, or casually kicking back in a lounge...I like that.”

As do the millions of Bones viewers who will finally get to see their favorite G-man kick all the way back when Boreanaz’s matinee idol–ish Agt. Seeley Booth and Emily Deschanel’s forensic guru Dr. Temperance Brennan seal the deal after four seasons of screwball comedy–infused sparks...
To see behind the scenes outtakes from all of the sexy photo shoots, check out our photo gallery.

For all of TV Guide Magazine's Sexiest Stars of 2009, pick up this week's issue, on stands now!
