Jesse Nagy’s 4-year-old niece Izzy really wanted to dress up as a princess to go see Disney’s new Cinderella live action movie, but she was afraid that no one else would dress up. That’s when the tattooed and muscular 26-year-old actor decided to dress up as a princess to make sure that Izzy would feel fine going to the movie dressed up! Now that’s role-model material.
Nagy borrowed a prom dress from a friend and topped the outfit off with a tiara, a handbag and… flip-flops (give him a break – he’d have broken his ankles!).

To give her courage to wear her princess costume out of the house, the 25-year-old actor offered to wear one himself.
“She said ‘you could be a princess too,'” Nagy said. “We made the trade-off and I said, ‘OK, we can both be princesses,’ but she had to have the crown. I thought ‘fair enough!’
Shortly after the two arrived to the movie, a theater employee shared a photo of Nagy and Izzy on Reddit where it received over 1.7 million views.
“I had no idea,” he said. “It wasn’t until midway through the movie by phone kept ringing with people texting asking if I was at a theater in Alabama. I’m not even subscribed to these sites so I said ‘what the heck is going on?'”
In the future, Nagy said he will continue taking Izzy out on their special dates.
