Former Rugby God Ben Cohen has been a favorite of ours for years, and not just because he may be the perfect male specimen. He has a huge heart, and has openly embraced his gay fans, making him one of our greatest sports allies.
In 2011 he founded the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation to combat bullying, and announced his retirement from Rugby to focus on its mission.
Ben is currently getting the chance to shine on Britain’s Strictly Come Dancing, and as we wish him luck, let’s also send birthday wishes his way. He turns 35 this weekend, and here are 35 reasons why he is, in fact … the perfect male specimen.
