Biography

Fabio Lanzoni (Italian pronunciation: [ˈfaːbjo lanˈtsoːni]; born March 15, 1959), known mononymously as Fabio, is an Italian-American actor, fashion model, and spokesman. Lanzoni is known for his wide-ranging career including appearing as a romance novel cover model throughout the 1990s; his acting and television roles, including multiple cameo appearances as himself; and his music and books. He has been a spokesman for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! and the American Cancer Society.

Personal Life

In a 1993 People interview, at the age of 34, Lanzoni condemned the idea of working solely on his looks: I’m gonna keep developing something inside. That way, when I’m 60, I’m not gonna be one of those people who try all the plastic surgery and be ridiculous. I’m gonna say, "I expressed myself. And now I’m a happy man." Lanzoni has attested that he disliked sweets since his infancy. He avoids cheese, sweets, salt, caffeine, alcohol, and drugs. He also reduces exposure to the sun. He has stated that a body should be treated "like a Lamborghini." His go-to dinner cuisine is Japanese food, particularly sushi rolls. In 2016, describing his unique diet to Sports Illustrated, Lanzoni stated,In the morning I get up, I have my oatmeal, I have, always, an egg whites omelet, sometimes with spinach, sometimes with asparagus, sometimes with tomatoes or mushrooms. I cook it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I always do. I’ve been using it for 20 years. For lunch, I normally have cod or sea bass or salmon with some vegetables. And at night, the same, usually fish with vegetables.In 2015, Lanzoni stated he goes to the gym for 60 minutes at least four times a week, engaging in aerobics and weight training. He also jogs, hikes, and does motocross enduro. As of 2015, he owns about 325 motorbikes; when The Washington Post asked Lanzoni why he collected so many, he responded, "There's 365 days in a year."In a 2016 Sports Illustrated interview, when asked how people could be more romantic in their everyday lives, Lanzoni advised, "Just be yourself. Just be the best of yourself."Lanzoni became a U.S. citizen in 2016. He celebrated the citizenship afterward with friends. In 2021, Fabio said he was retired and hoping to marry and have children. He also said he sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber because he believes it reverses aging. He described his potential partner to People the same year:Someone with a beautiful soul, great sense of humor...I want a woman that can do sports and can be a little bit tomboy.

Early Life

Lanzoni was born 15 March 1959 in Milan, Italy, to Flora Carnicelli Lanzoni and Sauro Lanzoni, a mechanical engineer and owner of a conveyor-belt company. Lanzoni has an older brother, Walter, and younger sister, Cristina.Raised Catholic, he served as an altar boy.
