Country Strong: Sam Palladio
Like most guys, British actor Sam Palladio is hardly immune to the charms of a girl in leather. “I do like a bit of a rock-chick look,” admits the rising star, who plays musician Gunnar Scott on the country-music-soaked soap fest that is Nashville and appears on the big screen as a high-rolling gambler in this month’s Runner Runner with Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake. Says Palladio, “When a girl can mix up styles, like wearing a flowered piece with a leather jacket on top, that’s pretty cool.” We completely agree.
