Male Gaze: Remember Paul Walker’s Nice Eyes?

Take one look into Paul Walker’s piercing blue eyes and try not to be transported to your teenage years — when this perpetually tan, blond-haired heartthrob (with a killer chiseled jawline) ruled chick flicks and adrenaline-pumping action movies, playing everything from an undercover cop turned drag racer to a cocky, bet-making high-school jock. Yesterday, the actor appeared at South by Southwest to promote one of his latest movies, Hours, where he’ll be playing a father in New Orleans trying to keep his premature daughter alive when Hurricane Katrina hits. While the fact that the bicep-blessed Walker, who often appeared oil-greased and topless in his movies, has returned makes us officially feel old, we’re more than happy to see him flash those blinding white teeth of his. And we're crossing our fingers that he’ll be keeping that scruff in Fast & Furious 6, which is hitting theaters more than a decade after the original.

(As for the video below, he apparently swims too!)
