Aaron Taylor-Johnson Bared His Butt For A Photo Shoot, And We Didn't See It Coming

Quicksilver is giving me full-on Water Babies sunblock in his Flaunt Magazine spread.

The last time you saw Aaron Taylor-Johnson, he was being shot at by Ultron's robot army in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." But now, only months later, he's been shot in a much more flattering angle -- in a very California, hippie-dippie desert photo shoot for Flaunt Magazine's Summer Camp Issue.

The 40-page photo spread is accompanied by an interview in which the actor discusses why he took on his "Avengers" role ("I wanted to know who’s behind that power, to know the real man") and his much-discussed relationship with "Fifty Shades of Grey" director Sam Taylor-Johnson, who is 23 years his senior (“There’s not much people don’t already know"). But we're perverts, so we're mainly focusing on photographer Michael Muller's shots of Johnson "flaunt"-ing his butt and abs while rolling around in the desert covered in paint.

Check out a few of our favorites below -- and please don't tell Hawkeye, he'll only get jealous.
