10 men who we'd happily swap lives with

They’re rich and famous, have stunning wives or girlfriends and are either supremely talented or amazingly lucky: these are the men who we all want to be.

1. Gerard Pique

At 27 years old, Spain and Barcelona footballer Gerard Pique has already won everything there is to win in the game both at club and international level.

The World and European champion has also done pretty well in the relationship stakes by hooking up with smoking hot Colombian singer Shakira. The couple already have one child together and there are rumours that number two is on the way.


2. Dan Bilzerian

From being kicked out of the Navy to becoming a multimillionaire playboy, Dan Bilzerian's life has been quite a roller coaster, but he's sure making the most of it now.

Most famous for his extravagant Instagram posts posing alongside beautiful women, supercars and guns, he built up much of his $100 million fortune as a venture capitalist and by playing high-stakes poker.


3. Flavio Briatore

Italian businessman Briatore isn't the best-looking man in the world. However, his dating history reads like a modelling agency's contact list. His conquests include Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum, and he's now married to Italian TV personality and Wonderbra model Elisabetta Gregoraci.

That fact that he's sitting on $150 million might be part of the reason he's so irresistible to these beautiful women, but if we were in his position at 64 years old, we'd certainly take it.


4. Jay Z

Shawn Corey Carter, better known by his stage name Jay Z, is one of the most financially successful rappers of all time, with an estimated net worth of $520 million.

He's also married to fellow singer Beyonce, which means that not only is his wife one of the hottest women in the world, she's also one of the richest.


5. Mario Götze

There aren't many 22-year-olds who we'd want to swap lives with, but German World Cup winner Mario Götze is one of them.

Not only did the Bayern Munich player score the winning goal for his country at last month's World Cup, but he also has stunning lingerie model Ann Kathrin Brömmel to go home to every evening.


6. Ashton Kutcher

After starting as a bit of a cheeky chappy on American TV prank showPunk'd, Ashton Kutcher has done a lot of growing up over the past few years.

An excellent performance as the title character inJobs made him a serious actor, and he's also expecting his first child with one of Hollywood's most beautiful women, Mila Kunis.


7. Hugh Hefner

There isn't really that much we need to say about why we wouldn't mind swapping lives with the original playboy.

He's lived a life of fame, riches and debauchery and still, at the ripe old age of 88, Hefner is married to a glamour model 60 years his junior. How does he do it?


8. Justin Verlander

Baseball is a funny old game, but it obviously pays off if you're any good at it. Take Justin Verlander for example; last year he became the highest-paid pitcher in the sport after signing a $180 million, five-year contract with the Detroit Tigers.

And the ace pitcher has also hit a home run in his love life, as he's engaged to 22-year-old American model and actress Kate Upton.


9. Cristiano Ronaldo

The only sportsman in the world who makes more money than Cristiano Ronaldo is American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. We would have him on this list but that fact that he's single and has to fight for a living was a slight drawback.

On the other hand, Ronaldo simply prances around on the football pitch a couple of times per week then gets to go home to Russian model and film star Irina Shayk.

Sam Branson

10. Sam Branson

When you're the heir to a $4.6 billion fortune, it's no surprise that life is turning out pretty well for Sam Branson, son of Virgin mogul Richard.

The 28-year-old has a university degree from Oxford, is a pal of Prince Harry and last year got married to English actress, model and socialite Isabella Calthorpe.
