Soaps' Sexiest Men 2020 - Don Diamont

You’re no stranger to sexy, having been included in People’s 50 Most Beautiful issue in 1990 and then being dubbed “Sexiest Soap Veteran” in 2009. What’s your secret?

“Showering twice a day.”

How would you define sexy?

“Sexy is in the eye of the beholder.”

What was your wife, Cindy Ambuehl’s (ex- Amy/Kim, B&B), reaction to this nod?

“I have to get back to you on that. I forget to mention it! See, when you maintain this level of sex appeal over such a long period of time, you’re just nonchalant [laughs].”

What’s the sexiest thing in your wardrobe? “Whatever is comfortable … Maybe it’s what I don’t wear.”

Who is your pick for sexiest celebrity?

“Ann-Margret, no doubt. Also, Angie Dickinson and Ursula Andress. I actually told my wife that she’s Ursula Andress- esque, especially in Dr. No when she walks out of the ocean. Farrah Fawcett, of course. I had her poster and Lynda Carter’s WONDER WOMAN poster.”

What’s your idea of a romantic evening? “It’s never just one thing. I like to turn the bed down for her, have the lighting just right, light a candle. That’s almost like a daily thing, and I know she appreciates that. For Valentine’s Day, I like to make a big deal about it, whether it’s a vacation getaway or a restaurant we haven’t been to in a while, flowers, gifts. I enjoy all of that.”

Finish this sentence: My heart races when…

“I will look at my wife from across the room, to this very day, and I am struck by her. It’s still like the first time I saw her, and that is the truth. And she really makes me laugh.”
