Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Karl fondled Sarah’s hair on the dance floor at the company party in Love Actually? Since he took her back to her house and kissed her in her doorframe and was all “I don’t actually have to go, I guess”? Ten years, you guys.

The man in the briefs and the nice shirt and the world’s thinnest eyeglass frames has a name in real life, and that name is Rodrigo Santoro. He’s an actor, you guys, and not just a piece of meat that Sarah has wanted to have babies with for two years, seven months, three days, and an hour and thirty minutes. And you know what? He looks pretty much exactly the same now as he did then. See?

Here’s another one of his face, since it’s like his third best feature:

But you know what else is cool, besides the fact that we still think about the “enigmatic chief designer”? Well, his life seems pretty great. He’s been working steadily ever since Love Actually was released in 2003, with roles in Lost, 300, I Love You, Philip Morris, and tons more. The Brazilian actor, from Rio de Janeiro, also seems to have found himself a companion as beautiful as he is.

Yep. Her. Her name is Mel Fronckowiak and she’s a 25-year-old model, actress, singer, and writer from Pelotas, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The above pic was taken at the “Show Me Your Sloggi” competition in Paris in 2008. What’s that, you ask? A competition for the best butt in the world. She won, in case you were curious. And these days, she’s hanging with Rodrigo, so it seems like her luck has continued. (Psst, click on that pic for a NSFW version.)

Yep, we’d be smiling like that, too, if we were Mel or Rodrigo. Ten years since the movie came out, and we’re still in love, actually.
