Early life and family
Anthony Varrecchia was born on March 24, 1963 in Staten Island, New York, USA. He holds the American nationality and his zodiac sign is Aries. He was born into a family of Italian descent, originating from Auletta, Italy; his parents were Theresa and Edmund Varrecchia, and he has an older sister named Theresa after her mother. Anthony loved posing and performing when he was a kid. He shared that he always stood out from the crowd, often being the only person like that.
He maintains warm relations with his childhood friends as they supported each other unconditionally since they were toddlers. Anthony wanted to be an actor and practiced in front of the mirror: ‘It’s always fun to play the part… since I was a kid… turning into a character and pretending to be someone else… it’s the creativity that flows through these veins,” he wrote in one of his Instagram posts. Anthony has been living in Shanghai, China since 2010.
Anthony enrolled in his local high school, Canyon Crest Academy, in 1981. After graduating from New York State University in 1985 with a BA in business and management, he pursued his dream of becoming a model.
Don’t become a model
Anthony’s cousin persuaded him to collect his portfolio and apply to the local modeling agencies, as Anthony was a bit shy about taking this step, but by the end of 1985 his portfolio was ready and he started visiting the agencies, but all of them refused to continue the conversation as soon as they learned he was not six feet tall. Anthony was discouraged and dejected.
He worked for a number of years at design agencies and eventually ended up in the position of Art Director. In 1991, he did a shoot for Fitness Plus magazine on Jones Beach organized with a group of friends and relatives, and even got his nieces and nephew involved. The shoot went very well and many pictures were taken to post on different photo files.
However, for Anthony, it was at a time when he was seriously interested in sports, went to the gym and gained more experience in training.
Taking the second chance
In 2011, Anthony was offered another attempt at a modeling career and shooting a series of pictures. The only thing the photographer wanted to change was the color of his hair and beard from dark brown to silver white. The photos turned out great and Anthony was reached by several agencies with offers for shoots, catwalks, etc. Since 2012, Anthony has been represented by the SilverFox Management modeling agency in Australia, and two more agencies in London and California.
In 2013, Anthony started his own Instagram account, because when his photographer posted several pictures of Anthony on his profile, the effect was stunning – hundreds of people appreciated his looks, especially his silver hair.
In 2017, he entered the list of Attitude’s Bachelors of Year, and in Attitude’s June 2018 issue, he gave a major interview sharing details about his past life and career. Subsequently, Anthony appeared on many catwalks, modeling for brands like Underwear Experts, Zues, etc. He also worked for Summer Diary Project where he shot with another popular male model, Gabe LaDuke. During Brooklyn Fashion Week, he was on the panel of “Age in Fashion”.
Anthony is also a certified personal fitness trainer, but has recently started practicing photography.
Social media career
As of 2020, Anthony has over 170,000 subscribers on his Instagram account. He says it’s an opportunity for him to be creative and have fun, but he feels delighted when he occasionally meets his followers, and they thank him for what he does; he says they are inspiring. He posts his half-naked photos almost daily, but states that he has never been reported for nudity on his profile.
Beard balm and oils from Anthony Varrecchia
In 2017, Anthony launched his own line of beard balms, oils and other hair products: ‘I’ve always had an interest in grooming products, so I was thrilled when my business partner, Michael Walton-Jones, found me on social media and presented me with this opportunity’.
The line started with just three products – Bourbon & Smoke and Tequila oils and a eucalyptus balm, but has since expanded to include several more items.
Personal life, friend Mark Frazer
Late first husband
Anthony came out when he was about 35 – he had always felt afraid and uncomfortable about sharing details about his sexuality: “I cared what family, friends and others would think of me,” he said of his concerns in his interview with Attitude in 2017. However, he told his friends and family, and the response was mostly positive. In 2000, Anthony met the person he wanted to marry, and he and his boyfriend registered as domestic partners in 2001, took a plane to San Francisco, and traveled the country looking for the place where they could legally marry – in 2002 , they registered as a civil union in Vermont.

The laws changed and they finally got married officially in Canada in 2008, but Anthony’s husband died in a car accident a few weeks later – Anthony was devastated, his heart was totally broken, thinking he couldn’t live and never love again . “It was so traumatic that it still affects me many years after his passing. The accident turned my life upside down. I believed it was impossible to love again’, he looks back on those days. He later admitted that fitness helped him a lot to find a different feeling in life.
