I concure, he is a great actor.

When I first saw him in Y Tu Mama Tambien ... I though, " too bad he's too short for my taste".

Apart from that he's a pretty cute guy and I love his eyes.

My opinion might be bias because he looks a little like my first crush.

OMG I love Gael. You have no idea how much. Y tu mama tambien is one of my favorite movies and I'm very happy to announce that Gael is working on an American film. I know the plot of the movie but it's a bit blurry to me at the moment. His character will be named Elvis.

My friend says he looks like a monkey (he's a guy though, why should he care?) But i think hes so cute, he's a great actor as well.
He's the hottest monkey I've ever laid eyes on!

Ah, yes ... a monkey. Wtv, when i saw "y tu mama tambien" I kinda wanted to be banged by him too along with all those other skanks in that movie. Too bad he was premature most of the time :no:
