If any­one has mas­tered the art of balanc­ing a de­mand­ing ca­reer with an ac­tive life­style, it’s LA debt at­tor­ney and full-time hunk, Gar­rett For­rester. “My secret to stay­ing in shape… is to have a vi­sion and make a plan. I take a mo­ment to en­vi­sion my ideal self, and then my ideal week and days. With a strong clear vi­sion, the plan falls into place.”

Gar­rett loves work­ing with ner­vous or un­sure clients fac­ing their cred­i­tors. “It’s an amaz­ing feel­ing… I show them that not only do they have rights and reme­dies un­der the law, but now they also have the le­gal mus­cle to back them up.”

Gar­rett also chairs the Rent Sta­bil­i­sa­tion Com­mis­sion in the iconic gay vil­lage of West Hol­ly­wood, and stresses the im­por­tance of LGBTQ peo­ple and other mi­nori­ties play­ing an ac­tive role in lo­cal pol­i­tics.

“It’s so im­por­tant for mi­nori­ties to have lead­er­ship roles in their com­mu­ni­ties. Democ­racy is based on the idea of self­gov­ern­ment… it only works if cit­i­zens par­tic­i­pate. No mat­ter how big or small your com­mu­nity, there are ways to get in­volved.”

As for his ideal guy? “I think the sex­i­est man alive is An­der­son Cooper. He’s smart, phys­i­cally strong and he cares about peo­ple.”

What makes a man sexy? “To me, it’s a guy who wants to leave this world bet­ter than he found it.”
