Stephen James has no regular history. He is a model that has become popular both offline and in social media, where he has acquired a huge following. Before becoming a model, he started his career as a footballer but had to give up after an injury. After making a name for himself as a model and working with some major brands, you can find out all about him here.
Who Is Stephen James? Bio And Age
It was in Hammersmith, London, when the model was born on December 4, 1990, as Stephen James Hendry. Of Scottish and Jewish descent little is known about his family and education.
He grew up in Barcelona, but also spent some time in India, which later influenced his religious beliefs when he studied Hinduism, which is the reason for his Kali tattoo. Nevertheless, he does not believe in any religion.
Having described himself as a very shy person, he expanded from modeling to the business world by founding a bar and barbershop in Barcelona.
Football And Modeling Career
Although he has become very popular as a model, Stephen James started as a footballer who played as a midfielder. In his youth career, he played for Queens Park Rangers in 2005, and in 2006 he moved to the Brentford youth team, where he stayed until 2008 when he moved to the senior side before moving to AFC Wimbledon in the same year. After spending a year with the team, he moved to Cyprus to play for Nea Salamis Famagusta. He was supposed to move to Superleague Greece in 2010 and play for Asteras Tripoli F.C., but the move did not materialize. More than that, he played for the Scottish U-18 team in 2007.
When he was still a resident footballer in Spain, a lot of people used to come up to him and ask if he wanted to become a model, but because of his football career, he didn’t think about it. That was until he suffered an injury and had surgery on both sides of his groin. When he recovered, he decided to try a modeling agency in Barcelona. He soon worked as a model for the Spanish clothing retail company Bershka. From then on, as the cliché says, it’s history.
He was known for his body-covering tattoos. When he started modeling, he only had one small tattoo, but as he continued, he enlarged his tattoos so that they now covered his whole body. Even though this is something that makes it hard for others to succeed in the industry, it has made him stand out and help him succeed. But this does not mean that he is allowed to do all kinds of advertising because there are some who prefer people without tattoos.
James has worked with many agencies and brands including ASOS, Men’s Health Magazine, Diesel, XTI, GQ Germany, Takeshy Kurosawa, Philipp, and Calvin Klein, which he described as the best model he made after working for Calvin Klein Fragrance.
Stephen has a large social media fan base with more than 2.3 million followers on Instagram (as of 2018).
Dating, Wife, And Daughter
As far as his relationship life is concerned, he is still not married, as in the second half of 2018. However, the supermodel is connected to Irina Sheikh, who has met people like Cristiano Ronaldo, but there seems to be nothing between them. He has also shared a video with an unknown woman, who is probably his girlfriend.
Still, there are many people who still talk about their daughter. The irony is that Stephen James had neither a daughter nor a child in his previous life.
Height And Weight
Apart from his good looks, one of the most important things that have helped him succeed as a model and also as an athlete is his good physique. He has good size and the body of an athlete. Expressed in numbers he measures 185 cm (6 feet) in height and his body weight is 71 kg (156.53 lbs).
He also has brown hair, green eyes, and wears shoe size 9.5 (UK), 43.5 (EU), and 10 (USA). His chest measures 39.5 centimeters, his waist is 30 centimeters long and his collar is 15.5 centimeters long. To maintain his fitness, he reveals that he eats protein, goes to the gym, and goes on holiday.
