Jeremy Meeks on the cover of his autobiography, “Model Citizen”
*Jeremy Meeks has conquered prison, fashion runways and Hollywood. Now the “Hot Felon,” whose perfectly chiseled mug shot famously went viral in 2014, will arrive in bookstores with his new autobiography.
“Model Citizen,” due October 10, chronicles his meteoric rise from poverty to worldwide fame. It will cover his criminal activity before being arrested in 2014, as well as the mug shot that launched his modeling and acting career, and led to him dating and having a child with Topshop heiress Chloe Green.
TMZ caught up with Meeks at Los Angeles International Airport and asked him about his Hollywood success. He said he just got back from filming a Christmas movie, and expressed excitement over the October release of his book. Watch below:

Jeremy says it’s surreal to see the details of his life in the pages of a book. He hopes to some day adapt the tome into a television series, but not a film. He said it would be impossible to edit his life down to a couple hours or less.
He was born on February 7, 1984 in Takoma, Washington. On June 18, 2014, he and three other men were arrested in Stockton, California in a multi-agency law enforcement mission dubbed Operation Ceasefire. He denied the felony weapon charges. Mug shots for Meeks and the other men were posted the same day on the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page. Within 24 hours, Meeks’ photo had acquired more than 15,000 “likes” and 3,700 comments, mostly regarding his appearance.
Stockton PD spokesman Joe Silva said that the mugshot had received more attention than any other mugshot since they launched the Facebook page in 2012.
