Former soccer player Sam Asghari, 22, started modeling in 2016 at an age where most teenagers are doing their first job interview. He’s come a long way since then, working on the first-ever Man of Steel film ad campaign, “Live the Dream,” as well as the W magazine cover. Next up, he’ll appear in a feature alongside his girlfriend, Britney Spears, in “I Feel Pretty,” directed by Amy Schumer.
Asghari and Spears confirmed their relationship in October 2017, and they’ve been spotted out together countless times since. “I’m blessed,” he said of his new romance. “I met such a special person who I don’t think I’d have the experiences I have with without her. She just makes me happy to be myself, so that makes me happy to be around her.”
Asghari got his first big break in 2015 when he was cast in the long-awaited season 3 of “Dancing With the Stars,” where he and professional partner Sharna Burgess earned a perfect score of 40 for their jazz routine. He has since worked alongside other A-list clients, including Mickey Rourke, Hailee Steinfeld, and Bryce Dallas Howard.
