That's the title ("Essere Bolle e' un Lavoro Duro") in Corriere della Sera's Io Donna la Repubblica's D Magazine January 14 edition that shares a small interview with the Italian ballerino, principal dancer at both Milan's Teatro alla Scala and New York City's American Ballet Theatre. The 36-year-old Adonis is preparing for Excelsior (also the name of one of our favorite luxury department stores in Milan where we were coincidentally having a coffee with friends when the Italian gawd himself was upstairs in a dressing room trying on a thong -- photo below, life is so unfair for us mere mortals) which opens at Teatro alla Scala on January 20 and frankly kind of gives us a Springtime for Hitler finale vibe, no joke.
So does it bother him when people objectify his hawt body?
"No, I'm conscious that the physical body has its own importance. A statuesque body has helped me in dance and has helped open me up to a more varied public. I'm sorry that some people, when they see something beautiful, whether it be a ballerina or an actor, don't understand that there's work behind it, a kind of personality."
And how exactly does he keep that magnificent shape (aside from healthy eating and dancing like seven hours a day?)
"Yoga, pilates, swim, training -- but I don't refuse once in a while some chocolate."
