Benicio Del Toro is showing off his model credentials - he's become the first ever man hired as the face of drinks company Campari.
The Puerto Rican actor has signed up to front the 2011 Campari calendar, which usually features sexy female stars, making him the first man to model for the brand in its 150-year history.
Del Toro follows in the footsteps of Latina actresses including Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes and Jessica Alba, who starred in this year's (10) calendar, and he admits he is delighted with the honour.
He says, "It is an honour to be the first ever Campari Man. I am in good company with my three amigas of previous calendars: Jessica Alba, Salma Hayek, and Eva Mendes. The 2011 Campari Calendar images tell a very cinematic story, which made it fun for me as an actor. I'm really looking forward to seeing the reaction of Campari fans to the style and drama of the 2011 edition."
The new calendar will be available at the end of the month (Oct10).
