Hunk of the Day: Daniel Radcliffe, Naked Again

daniel radcliffe shirtless

Ever since appearing in the Broadway buff in ‘Equus’, Daniel Radcliffe has all butt erased any lingering Harry Potter baggage,  and continues to do so with these stills from a recent movie, in which he’s getting his gay sex scene groove on (I’ve omitted the racier photos, sorry.) Mr. Radcliffe has been naked here before, more than once, and surely there are those who won’t mind him naked again. This marks his first appearance as Hunk of the Day, however, but probably not his last.

A Shirtless Oscar Winner

jared leto naked 1

Last night, while watching the Oscars (but not doing a big bitchy Oscar post like last year, because I just wasn’t up for it) I asked someone to give me an idea for this post. My Twitter friend Alexander recommended Jared Leto through the years. And so, here you go. I remember when he first emoted as Jordan Catalano on ‘My So-Called Life.’ I think I might have liked him a bit more back then, when his hair was a little shorter. But there are those who like a Christ-cut, and pose, and he gives that, and more, with some help from photographer Terry Anderson.

The Great Male Model Retrospective

naked male model 1000

Male models, given far less credit (and money) than their female super-counterparts, have always been appreciated on this blog. More than lust or desire or frenzied acclaim, they are an inspiration. They help me put down that second danish, or walk by the bowl of M&M’s, or take the one flight of stairs instead of the elevator. Granted, none of that is turning me into a male model anytime soon, but if such inspiration is a starting point, why knock it? And why keep them hidden? Here, then, is a brief collection of those shirtless men who keep some of us on our toes. One of the greatest gifts that another person can give is inspiration; these hunks have proven most generous in that respect.

Let’s begin on a personal note, with a model whom I first met when he was just five years old. Who knew at the time that the thin, rambunctious cousin of my then-girlfriend would grow into such an admirable young man? Meet Calvin.

Someone I haven’t met (but if anyone can manage an introduction, please hook a guy up) is Noah Mills.

Two words: David Gandy. And since you can never get enough, another naked glimpse.

Two more words: Tyson Beckford.

In case you haven’t heard a bazillion times before, I prefer my male models not too closely-shaven. In fact, when it comes to chest hair, less depilatory action is more. As proven in these shirtless and nude shots of Josh Wald, Jared Allman (and he is all man), and Daniel Garofali (who just manages to keep enough on, and I don’t mean clothing).

Before he went all Fifty Shades of Sexy, Jamie Dornan was just another Hunk of the Day.

Cult favorite Benjamin Godfre always seemed a tad too edgy to ever be mainstream model material, and I love him all the more for it.

In addition to flaunting his nakedness in front of the camera, Todd Sanfield also produced a line of his own underwear, that he models better anyone else.

He may have been better-known as Madonna’s sexy boyfriend at one time, but Jesus Luz got some modeling gigs out of it, and with good reason.

Theres nothing better than a male model who can rock a colorful bow tie (and colorful square cut), such as Victor Ross does so winningly.

Calvin Klein has introduced a number of remarkable specimens over the years, a knack that continued with a nude Garrett Neff and an equally-naked David Agbodji.

Asia has unfortunately never been tapped as a great supplier of male models, but gentlemen like Choi Ho Jin should go some way toward correcting that. And Godfrey Gao has made his own sexy efforts as well.

Tom Ford, however, has been tapping male models for years, as richly evidenced by Juan Betancourt.

Brazil has also never been lacking when it comes to male models. See Caio Cesar take it all off.

Nobody pulls off fringed leather chaps like Rob Evans.

Nathan Owens brings us the shirtless and pants-less Days of Our Lives.

Dolce & Gabbana were largely responsible for putting Tyson Ballou on the male model map, and cartographers around the world should be ever grateful.

Finally, a man of fine ink, David Mcintosh, because an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

A Naked Ginger

greg rutherford 100

Olympian Greg Rutherford has been slightly naked here before, but never in GIF-animated motion like this. That always merits a second post. As does any ginger who deigns to take his clothes off. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: everybody loves a ginger.

Hunk of the Day: Lucien Laviscount

lucien laviscount 101

British actor and recording artist Lucien Laviscount lends his English heat to the Hunk of the Day series, with just a few sultry glances at the camera. With dark eyes and a smoldering smile like his, that’s more than enough to qualify. Mr. Laviscount was also on a season of Celebrity Big Brother, the point of which seems to be getting the housemates to disrobe and shower for the cameras. I don’t know why I haven’t seen an episode…

Hunk of the Day Redux: Alex Pettyfer

alex pettyfer 107

One of the ‘Magic Mike’ stripper alums, Alex Pettyfer has finally graduated to double Hunk of the Day status. His new film – ‘Endless Love’ – is one I’ll never see. Romance, suspense, and star-crossed lovers – I had enough Romeo & Juliet bullshit in high school and feel no need to dip back into that cesspool of emotional mayhem. Instead, just feast upon his shirtless form. That’s what we’re here for anyway. I’m not sure how he stacks up with the Hunk entries of stripping mentors Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Channing Tatum, but you can be the judge of that.

Hottest Hunks of the Day: A Brief Collection

shirtless male hunk 1

As we begin this final week of the final full month of winter (good-bye and good riddance, you frigid bastard), we take a sexy trip down memory lane with this linky, kinky retrospective of several Hunks that have kept things hot over the years. For this group, I’ve selected some guys who may have flown under your radar the first time around. There’s something special about second chances.

First up for this encore is Josh Wald, a gorgeously hairy skateboarder-turned-male-model. I love any guy who keeps it real, body hair-wise, and his tattoos actually don’t bug me as much as some usually do.

Second, we present another skateboarding hunk, Dean Geyer, best known for his work on ‘Glee’, and Keith Urban, better known as Mr. Nicole Kidman.

A few more lesser-renowned gentleman to have been crowned Hunk of the Day: Chris Zylka, Brandon Flowers, Eddie Redmayne, Reggie Bush, Tom Hardy, and Daniel Craig.

And some interesting also-Hunks ~ HGTV star Chip Wade, Speedo-clad diver Chris Mears (who wears even less here), Shakira-baby-Daddy Gerard Pique, and the quirky but hairy Mark Ruffalo.

Finally, one of the more obscene bulges to have ever been featured here belongs to that of Sandor Earl.

The Great & The Gratuitous in Male Nudity

gratuitous male nudity 101

Shirtless and naked male celebrities get a lot of attention here, and this Saturday post, designed for my time in Boston, will do nothing to curb the sexy shirtless appeal for which many of you visit this site. It’s time for a brief look back at some classic guys who have garnered rave reviews whenever they doff their shirts. While no one is nude just yet (wait for it…) these guys are too hot not to feature again.

First up is David Beckham, who models the latest in his underwear line for H&M. While I’m not a huge fan of the clothing, I like the way he sells it. Far lesser stars would never have shown themselves in the briefs that Mr. Beckham braves, and far bigger stars wouldn’t have the balls either. Beckham beats both quite handily.

(On a side-note, one can’t mention Mr. Beckham without mentioning his only competition for sexiest underwear-shucker ~ Ben Cohen.

Or Mario Lopez.

Or Cristiano Ronaldo.

Or Rafael Nadal.

Another favorite shirtless male who’s not afraid to get a little naked now and then is Chris Evans. As the Captain of our country, Mr. Evans fights for truth and freedom and the right to take off his shorts and jump in Boston Harbor. (We may not utilize all of our rights, but I’m glad they’re there.)

More recently, Dan Osborne has been seen here in his altogether, in several breathtaking GIFs and also chumming it up with fellow Speedo-clad diver Tom Daley. (Whom you’ve seen here over and over again.) Mr. Osborne is no stranger to male nudity, and he seems to be the kind of 21st century guy who embraces the glances of men and women alike. Desire is desire, and flattery is flattery. And when you’ve got a body like that, well, you can embrace it all.

Last but most certainly not least is Joe Manganiello. He battled Channing Tatum for the best butt and the result was a virtual draw. (We need to see them again.) Some battles are better when there’s no Victor. Or Victor.

Hunk of the Day: Jason Derulo

jason derulo 100

Singer and song-writer Jason Derulo, the main man in Jordin Sparks’ life, is our Hunk of the Day. Mr. Derulo sings the earnestly hopeful ‘Marry Me’, the video for which features Ms. Sparks as his soon-to-be-betrothed. It’s a rare moment lacking in cynicism within an industry of nothing but cynicism. It’s good to be reminded that there is still love out there, still hope and excitement and happiness around every corner if we let own our defenses.

Yet Another Naked Dan Osborne Post

dan osborne naked 1001

You may be getting sick of Dan Osborne baring his male nudity here, but if you’re not, you’ve come to the right post. This one features the posterior of Mr. Osborne, which previous GIFs only hinted at. Who knew when he was named Hunk of the Day back in last October or prancing around as a shirtless Santa that he’d practically demand a category all to himself, a la David Beckham, Ben Cohen, Madonna, Tom Daley, and Tom Ford? Well, I supposed this naked post gave some indication of the Speedo splash he was about to make

Chris Salvatore’s Underwear Line

chris salvatore under1

David Beckham has done it.

Ben Cohen has done it.

Mario Lopez has done it.

Even Todd Sanfield has done it.

But the best news of all may be that Chris Salvatore is now doing it.

How did news that he was making a foray into designing Men’s Underwear escape me? I’ve got to get out more. The first I heard of this exiting endeavor was on my FaceBook feed – and it was the loveliest surprise I’ve had since Dan Osborne joined Tom Daley in a Speedo. Mr. Salvatore’s line of underwear looks intriguing, and stylish, which should come as no surprise from someone who’s made the modeling rounds within his entertainment career. He keeps things simple enough, which is the best way to begin, and I’m looking forward to trying out the goods. If they make me look half as good as he does, I’ll be a fan for life.

I can think of no one who is better suited to fit into a pair of briefs and sell it to the world. That Mr. Salvatore has always seemed like such a sweet guy makes it all the more enjoyable. (Check out some of the musical performances that feature just him and his keyboard and tell me it’s not adorable. The man’s got talent.) Even more impressive is his openly-gay status in a Hollyworld of secrets and pretend. Mr. Salvatore lives his life honestly, and is all the more effective because of it. Now he’s revealing another layer – the underlayer – and it’s fashionable, fun, flirtatious, and sexy – just like the man himself.


“Underwear is the foundation of our entire wardrobe. While it may be the least “visible” article of clothing we wear everyday, I’ve always believed that it should be the most comfortable. My career has afforded me the opportunity to wear a lot of great clothes and work with some awesome clothing and costume designers over the years. I began to learn that the clothes don’t make the man, the man makes the clothes.  It’s all about what makes you feel sexy and confident in your own skin, and it starts with a great pair of underwear!”  ~ Chris Salvatore Underwear

Hunk of the Day: Perez Hilton

Love him or hate him (and there is rarely an in-between) Perez Hilton is a celebrity blogger who will not be ignored. I tend to err on the love side of things, as I admire anyone with the balls to unequivocally be who they are without apology or defense. He’s owned up to mistakes he’s made in the past, and he seems to be changing and improving as we all try to do. Physically, he’s made quite the transformation, shedding hundreds of pounds over the years to become the cut hunk you see here. That takes work and discipline, and my hat goes off to anyone who can do that. And so, Perez Hilton is the Hunk of the Day, because there’s enough room in this world for all of us. Stop hating. Stop judging. Just enjoy.

More Dan Osborne & Tom Daley

dan and tom 101

In the likely event that this naked post of Dan Osborne and Tom Daley wasn’t enough earlier today, here are a couple of GIFs to really put the cherry on this Sunday. Alas, the US does not yet have an equivalent of ‘Splash’ – the diving contest that brings out the boys in their bedazzled Speedos – not that American celebrities would be so brave and bold. At any rate, enjoy this bonus post before the week begins again.

Hunk of the Day: Christof Innerhofer

Christof Innerhofer 1001

Continuing our sexy Olympic line-up of Hunks of the Day, this is Christof Innerhofer, an Alpine ski racer who represents Italy. Forget the slopes ~ someone get this man an underwear modeling contract immediately. Covered head to toe in skiing gear would be one of life’s greatest tragedies in Mr. Innerhofer’s case.

Hunk of the Day: Marco Dapper

marco dapper 102

Marco Dapper made his big splash onto the gay pop culture scene when he dropped his robe and revealed his full-frontal glory in the film ‘Eating Out.’ Since then, he’s made a name for himself modeling and acting, and with the looks (and body) he shows off here, why shouldn’t he? This marks Mr. Dapper’s first time as the Hunk of the Day, but given his body of work, it may not be his last. Sometimes you can do the same thing twice, especially if it’s this hot.
