Go Ahead, Objectify: 50 Famous Men Who Are Certifiable Beefcakes
50 Start slideshow

 

Ah, summer: The only season that exists solely for the purpose of letting it all hang out. Ogling women in short-shorts, tiny bikinis, and mini skirts has undoubtedly become a pastime for men around the world, but guess what? The season also provides a delightfully shameless approach to the masculine sex, too. You know what we’re talking about. Hotties. Beefcakes. Studmuffins. Man meat.

Not only is the summer the time for action-packed blockbusters, but this year we also have a movie packed with a different kind of action: “Magic Mike XXL” comes out July 1, and—in case you’ve been living under a rock—is about hot-as-hell male strippers played by Channing Tatum, Joe Mangianello, Matt Bomer, and Alex Pettyfer.

These hunks got us thinking about other dudes who fit the beefcake bill to a T: Sexy, kinda bro-y, a little homogenous, not too cerebral-seeming (sorry!), and—most of all—are built like brick houses.

To celebrate everything that’s great about summer, we’ve rounded up 50 famous men ripe for objectifying: Actors, athletes, models, and more, who all fit Google’s definition of a beefcake: “An attractive man with well-defined muscles.”

Amen.
