    Talking 180-thanks to his air of guarded

    Hello all

    What does the following sentence mean? Especially the part in the parentheses.

    Sean super-attractive,( thanks to his air of guarded )self-consciousness, as though this being-an-actor business were a bit like…

    Thanks all

    He is "Super attractive, thanks to his air of guarded self-consciousness"

    He is attractive because he is self-conscious, but he trys not to be too self-conscious in his own mind.

    Another example:

    "After Italy scored the 4th penalty shot, there was an air of guarded optimism among the Italian fans in the stadium."

    An atmosphere of cautious optimism... from the Italian fans.
