    ...then I assume you know the movie Passport To Paris. One of the Olsen twins' best work!!


    And if I have assumed that correctly then you'll also remember the qt french boys in the movie, Jean and Michel.


    Jean seems like a nice guy, but we'll get to him later.


    First let's discuss Michel, aka French guy with a bucket hat.


    He was inarguably the cuter garçon français. SORRY, JEAN!!


    Sorry Jean!

    Honestly, at that age (and when I was straight) I thought he was hot!!!


    But also, in the movie basically all he said was, "oui oui oui, bonjour petit fromage!"


    But guess what. HE'S NOT FRENCH AT ALL!!!


    Nope!!! He's just the American actor, from LA, Ethan Peck.


    HOWEVER. He is still hot. Some might say...hotter.

    Feast your eyes on adult Ethan.

    Anyway, in this random video I found on Youtube you can see both the points I made in the headline of this post. One, that he's not French. Two, that he's still hot!

    And guess what else. HIS GRANDPA IS GREGORY PECK!! AKA Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird.


    Those are some good genes!

    So now that we know that Michel is not French but is still hot, as promised here's an update on Jean.


    He is ALSO not French, and this is him as an adult American man:

    Also, he's a composer now and did the music for Wild Wild Country — that docuseries everyone was obsessed with a month ago.

    THERE YOU HAVE IT! The Passport To Paris guys are all grown up and...NOT FRENCH!!!!!!! ORE REVWAR!!!!
