Thanks, Cosmo: Scott Brown’s Modeling Pics Reveal “Excellent Hands”

Scott Brown wasn’t always the dreamy Senator of Massachusetts. Once upon a time he was a dreamy male model with smoldering good looks and “excellent hands.” Well then!

HIGHLY IMPORTANT UPDATE: It would seem Senator Brown has some puhretty stiff competition in the pretty hands department…

Brown’s modeling career arguably reached its high point when he appeared nude in a 1982 issue of Cosmopolitan, having won the magazine’s “America’s Sexiest Man” contest. Ever the patriot, that one. Of course, while he may seem embarrassed about that decision in retrospect, Brown’s photoshoot shows why magazines, whatever their future might be, will always hold the most special of places in American pop culture history.

Anyway! Check out these newly-revealed pictures of Brown from his modeling days, courtesy of The Model Archives of Marlowe Press via HuffPo:
