Model Thyago Alves Makes His Big Screen Debut


25-year-old model Thyago Alves, who you may remember from some pretty major ad campaigns such as Versace, Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, and Valentino, is currently in Brazil to promote the Italian movie Il Compleanno, in which he plays the lead role. The movie was directed by Marco Filiberti, and is now playing at the 33rd São Paulo International Film Festival, which goes on until November 5. And yes, there is a bit of a gay twist to the story.


Thyago and his rebel hair acquit themselves admirably, but the movie is really not very good, and the HOMOPHOBIC undercurrents of the "shocking" ending are offensive.

How did he get this role? Has he been off studying acting the past couple years? Always think he's a cross between Bruno Santos & Gabriel Mattar!
