Jesse Metcalfe: I have great genes

Jesse Metcalfe puts his film star looks down to good genes.

The modest hunk has been taking in the fashion shows at London Collections: Men, and attended Samuel L. Jackson’s One For The Boys charity at the weekend.

He was also spotted at the Men’s Health, Lou Dalton and Liberty parties, soaking up what the British capital has to offer in the style stakes.

“I take good care of myself. It’s probably more in the genes than anything else,” Jesse told British newspaper Metro.

Jesse quit booze in 2007 after a stint in rehab. Ditching the alcohol has also given the former Desperate Housewives star a health kick.

“Age can catch up on you. It was a perfect time for me to get sober and get healthy,” he revealed.

The star’s gorgeous girlfriend Cara Santana has joined him on the London trip, with the couple making the most of what England has to offer.

At yesterday’s Tiger of Sweden show 35-year-old Jesse looked dapper in a red checked blazer teamed with a pair of cream pants and tan and white brogues. Cara wore a flowing peach top, with matching shorts. She finished the outfit off with metallic sandals, for a fresh summer look.

The pair have been dining at some of London’s top restaurants too, and make sure they always leave room for dessert.

“3 Profiteroles, 1 Chocolate Fondant, 3 scoops of ice cream and 4 cookies! Delicious!!! (sic),” Jess posted on Twitter, next to a photo of the couple at Balthazar restaurant.
