Communicate about a hunk — of bread.
On Friday, a chiseled bakery worker was photographed carrying a baguette-taking in Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, up the stairs on the set of the “Sex and the City” reboot, “And Just Like That.”
The Post can expose that the thriller beefcake — who is putting on kind-fitting, thigh-exposing coveralls emblazoned with “Hot Fellas Baked Goods” on the established — is French actor and model Thomas Canestraro.
The 6-foot-1, blue-eyed 35-calendar year-old is a previous kickboxing champion who has acted together with Sylvester Stallone and Mel Gibson in “The Expendables 3” and in a few episodes of Tyler Perry’s “The Have and the Have Nots.”
He grew up in Villeneuve-le-Roi, a tiny city outside of Paris, and moved to New York about 10 years back to go after individual teaching, in which he was identified by a consumer.
“One of my consumers literally made available me a modeling gig for his clothing manufacturer,” Canestraro instructed The Post. “From there, I was scouted by photographer Tim Palen, who was then [the marketing chief] at Lionsgate.”
He and Palen struck up a friendship and he helped Canestraro land the part as Gibson’s henchman in the motion drama.
“It was a aspiration. I came out to New York and [was] grinding and two yrs later on, I obtained my very first movie,” explained Canestraro, who took performing and comedy courses to hone his skill set.
If his muscular frame and chiseled jaw glance familiar, which is since he’s cozied up with a different Tinseltown babe just before. In 2018, he posed with Blake Lively, who was then advertising her movie “A Easy Favor,” and her spouse Ryan Reynold’s Aviation American Gin. In one particular racy snap, shot by Palen, he was nude, on his back with his legs spread in the air and holding a martini, whilst Lively posed concerning his sculpted gams.
When she shared the shot on her Instagram, it prompted Reynolds to comment, “He appears nice.”
When Canestraro — whose desire is to act in a Scorsese motion picture — is not mugging for the camera, he’s slugging someone in the ring. An avid boxer, particular trainer and kickboxer, he holds five championships from the Planet Association of Kickboxing Corporations and 11 Light Kickboxing titles, moreover various national titles from France.
But his previous competitive battle was in 2011, when he gave it up to pursue a daily life in the US, exactly where he arrived recognizing no English.
He retains each a Bachelor of Science diploma and a master’s in youth, training and athletics, and, just before the pandemic, was using stand-up comedy and improv courses. He lately moved to Jersey City and is courting a person but is coy on the particulars. A different topic wherever he is mum: his shut-up with Carrie Bradshaw, citing an NDA.
But it’s protected to say he delivers the goods.
