Man Crush Mondays: 12 Things to love about Brandon Bell

Krissy Brady is a women’s health + lifestyle writer who’s so out of shape, it’s like she has the innards of an 80-year-old. Instead of learning how to crochet, she decided to turn her emotional baggage into a writing career (genius, no?)...

Let's all take a moment to swoon over Brandon Bell, shall we?

Long story short: Brandon Bell is kind of a big deal. His latest projects, Dear White People and Ascension, are receiving rave reviews — and he's barely 30! More than that, he's a humble hard worker who's not in the game for the coin or prestige, but to inspire others. And, you know, he's a tad on the gorgeous side.

1. He was born and raised in Dallas, Texas
