Who was the hottie with Luke Evans on the beach? The thirst-trapping actor, most recently seen on Hulu's "Nine Perfect Strangers," was seen with Israeli actor/model Eliad Cohen on the beach in Miami, which Cohen shared on Instagram. "Laughter, chilling and good conversations are better in good company. Thank you amigo @thereallukeevans for such a beautiful afternoon," he wrote.

Whether or not they are more than BFFs remains to be seen, but the strikingly handsome Cohen has quite a career of his own in the LGBTQ+ universe. The 33-year old is an Israeli producer, actor, model, and entrepreneur who co-founded Gay-ville, a LGBTQ+-friendly vacation rental service out of Tel Aviv. His career took off after being chosen as the cover model of the Spartacus International Gay Guide for the 2011-2012 issue, which led to various magazine covers around the world.

Cohen is also the founder of PAPA Party that was launched in Tel Aviv in association with Tel Aviv Gay Pride. After his Spartacus cover, he has been seen fronting magazines all over the world, including a controversial 2013 Spanish one "OhMyGod" when Spanish photographer Juan Pablo Santamaria depicted Eliad Cohen under the provocative title "Eliad Cohen: El nuevo mesías gay de Israel" ("The new gay messiah of Israel").

"Modeling and acting has been a big part of his late career so far," reads his bio on his website. Every year, various brands and platforms collaborate with the Israeli model to promote and create new products thanks to his large fan base.

"His notoriety and digital impact made him become the ambassador of VOTE PROUD, the non-partisan movement to inspire LGTBQ+ community to register and vote to combat voter apathy among all marginalized Americans. This movement is led by Elton John, Sharon Stone, Dua Lipa, David Furnish, Billy Porter, Andy Cohen, Laverne Cox, Sean Hayes, Shangela, Lisa Rina and Kevin Huvane."

Cohen has also launched his fashion line that can be found at

The new brand was launched in early 2021 and is led by Cohen in partnership with Spaniards Jesus Jimenez and Jose Garcia. The initial concept of the Eliad Cohen Store was just to sell shirts, tank tops, and sneakers. But due to the great acceptance they had, the entrepreneurs decided to create a new collection of beachwear pieces for the summer. "I am so excited, happy and proud to present my new swimwear collection!" declared Eliad in an interview with the Portuguese Magazine DYO.
