Just a few years ago, Rami Malek had something specific in mind when considering a mate.
Having recently formed a friendship with fellow actor Robert Downey Jr., he was reminded by GQ writer Lauren Larson that the Iron Man star had praised him to the outlet, saying, "Everyone should be studying this guy." And that was before his portrayal of enigmatic Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in last year's Bohemian Rhapsody turned him into Hollywood's latest man of the moment.
Malek's reply was equal parts humble and effusive. "That's the actor everybody wants to emulate. Folks want to get an ounce of what he has in his DNA," he said before going on to joke, "I'm waiting for him to have a daughter. No. That's weird. But does he have any daughters?"
He does, though, at 4-years-old (not even two at the time of the July 2016 interview), she may still be a bit young for the Los Angeles dating scene.
