George Butts '08
Bill Wadman

Although George Butts ’08 studied comparative literature at Princeton, it took him some time to find his niche. He tried qualifying for the U.S. Open in golf before finding an acting job playing an American college student on a telenovela series called La Gata and guest-starring on El Capo 3 soon after. In 2016, his agent called with a potential new gig: hand modeling. Butts had found his calling. He’s gone on to model for major brands, including Chase Bank’s Sapphire credit card (alongside James Corden) and Patron Tequila, where he cut limes and sprinkled chunky salt. “I would love to say that I majored in hand modeling at Princeton, but they didn’t offer it,” says Butts.
