Happy Thirstday to all who celebrate, because Jeremy Allen White is Calvin Klein’s newest underwear model.
The 32 year old actor has rocketed to fame in the last few years for his portrayal of tortured chef Carmen ‘Carmy’ Berzatto in Disney+ – a tense kitchen series also starring Ayo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.
In 2023, the second season dropped with further pan-clanging chaos, and some really tender moments from the Emmy-nominated show based on a real Chicago sandwich shop.
It was in this role thirst for Jeremy began to know no bounds as his fandom crossed into truly deranged territory.
Sarah York described him as the ‘Sexually Competent Dirtbag Line Cook’, and thus a new genre was born.
As if Carmy the hot chef wasn’t enough to make everyone obsessed (it was), then this Calvin Klein photoshoot absolutely will be.

One fan said Jeremy was the best Calvin Klein model yet (Picture: Calvin Klein Instagram)
He posed in the classic designers’ under-garms with a full six-pack on show, as he exposed a chiseled torso and skipped around a New York rooftop wearing nothing but white pants, socks and trainers. As you do.
At one moment, Jeremy – or the creative director, most likely – decides he should do a pull up on a handily positioned piece of al-fresco piece of gym kit with his bulge dangerously close to the camera.
He also does a big stretch – hard work, isn’t it Jeremy Allen Y-Front – before reclining on a lovely red sofa on top of a building overlooking the city.
Naturally, fans went wild, with many simply commenting: ‘Yes, chef.’
‘I’m so sorry to but this is the best Calvin model/advert ever,’ wrote @spiropyran with very high praise indeed.
Another user on X, formerly Twitter, took a humourous approach to the situation as @HeyRikus wrote: ‘The government is gonna ban me like they did XL bullies with the way that I’m barking at this man. I’m literally feral.’

‘Happy Thirstday,’ added @SashaSinclair11, while @MichaelDrummey went for the caps lock on full throttle: ‘PLEASE RESPECT MY PRIVACY AT THIS TIME.’
Others harked back to Jeremy’s earliest notable role, for which he played Lip Gallagher in Shameless from 2011 to 2021 – that’s ten years he was there in very plain sight, and no one batted an eyelid.
‘This cannot be the same Lip from Shameless….’ commented @Soul_is_ME, while @yoongissscafe9 admires all of his early, and recent, work.
‘I used to watch Shameless and loved his performance on that show. Now I watched The Bear, and he’s so great in that as well,’ they said.

Back in 2022 when The Bear and Carmy-the-heartthrob was born from the ashes of Shameless Jeremy, X user @thesarahyork perfectly summed up the allure in a viral post: ‘If you’ve ever waited in vain for a text back from a man with no bed frame in his apartment, you’re already pretty familiar with this type.
‘Imagine no-bed-frame man, but he only drinks from plastic quart containers and cooks a spaghetti carbonara that will make you write in your journal for the first time since high school. Has he showered today? No. Are you going to be the one to change him and make him want to settle down? Also no!
‘What if Pete Davidson drank even less water? That’s what Sexually Competent Dirtbag Line Cook looks like. He’s usually covered in tattoos – look for the signature dual knives on his forearms.
‘He perpetually smells like a campfire, partly because he works over an open flame, but mostly because he spends his nights burning through a pack of American Spirits out on his favourite dive bar’s smoking patio.
‘He will send the exact same text in response to your artful nude as he did when you told him your childhood cat died: ‘whoa lol’.’

It’s been an eventful year for Jeremy, as his wife Addison Timlin filed for divorce in May.
He and Timlin married in 2019 and share two daughters, Ezer and Dolores.
He won several accolades for the role of Carmy during the 2023 awards season including at the Critics Choice Television Awards, Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, and Golden Globes.
Now, Jeremy is also getting his kit off alongside Zac Efron for The Iron Claw, a wrestling biopic set to be released in the UK on February 9.
The Iron Claw is based on the real thick-as-thieves Von Erich brothers, who found fame for their historic professional wrestling achievements in the early 1980s.
In the trailer, both Jeremy and Zac can be seen flexing their muscles in the ring.
So if you’re a JAW fan, time to get that popcorn out…
