Russell Brand is sophisticated sexy! Shirtless Ricky Martin says “don’t call it a comeback!” Jason Statham’s looking beefy, Adrien Brody’s looking buff, and Jeff Gordon’s looking pretty fuckable! All this and more in Your Shirtless Celebrity Roundup!
Russell Brand looks oh-so-seductive on the cover of Cosmopolitan’s “Fun, Fearless Male” issue. Now, admittedly, we’ve never been the biggest Russell Brand fan. Sure, we recognize that he’s objectively good looking and that a lot of perfectly reasonable, intelligent people think he’s very funny. We’ve given up on trying to convince them otherwise. We were all prepared to totally enjoy his Cosmo cover, but there’s something off about it. We sure would love to meet the stylist of this shoot…and kill them. Because really, what guy wears a chunky knit shawl-collared cardigan over nothing? Or more to the point: what guy wears chunky knit shawl-collared cardigans at all?
Here’s the video for Ricky Martin’s new single, “The Best Thing About You Is Me.” We’re not sure how we feel about the song, which weirdly sounds sort of like Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” (so far we’re leaning towards “blech”). We do, however, know exactly how we feel about the fact that Martin spends a solid portion of this video crooning to the camera while showing off his muscular chest and awesome shoulder tattoos—and we’re feeling great.
We totally forgot to catch this Sunday’s series premiere of “Shameless,” the William H. Macy starring Showtime drama about an alcoholic father and his dysfunctional family, but suddenly we’ve got yet another reason to watch it. Meet Justin Chatwin, a hot young Canadian actor who, for whatever reason, loses his shirt in multiple scenes in the very first episode. We don’t know anything about his character or the show so we don’t know if shirtless Justin is going to be a regular thing, but we’ll be damned if we ain’t got our fingers crossed!
Joshua Jackson, star of Fox’s “Fringe” was spotted in Mexico on Monday wandering the beach shirtless with girlfriend Diane Kruger. Joshua is totally hot and all, but we’ll be honest with you: we’re only really putting this here to make a plug for “Fringe” which is probably the best sci-fi show on TV (just ask our friends at io9) and totally on the verge of cancellation. So watch that shit!
It looks like Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine is becoming quite the exhibitionist! First he stripped down to promote prostate and testicular cancer awareness for Cosmo UK, and now he’s going shirtless with girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna on the set of his band’s latest music video. Adam, you should just be naked all the time. You clearly don’t have a problem with public nudity and you do live in California. Live a little!
According to blogger Andrew R Tonry at The Portland Mercury’s Blogtown, actor Adrien Brody has been plastering these posters all over LA as part of an effort at rebranding his image. Andrew doesn’t seem to be a huge fan of the move, labeling Brody a “tool” for a going along with/instigating it, but we’re okay with anything that ushers in the age of Adrien Brody 2.0: buffer, manlier, and now with more flattering haircut action!
It looks like Jason Statham, action hero and star of such critical darlings as “Transporter,” “Transporter 2,” and “Transporter 3,” has put on a little beef! Here’s the 43-year-old actor vacationing in the Caribbean with model girlfriend, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. We have to say, those are some pretty fly swim trunks for such a grizzly-lookin’ manly man! (No, but seriously, we want them.)
NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon was photographed building sand castles on the beach with his wife, model Ingrid Vandebosch, in St. Barts. We’ve always wondered—if NASCAR is considered a sport does that make NASCAR drivers athletes? We honestly want to know. Jeff is looking pretty fit for a dude whose primary means of engaging in physical competition comes from sitting behind a wheel and trying not to die.
