With the holidays on the horizon and New Year’s within spitting distance, Hollywood Crush is ready to reflect on all that was awesome in 2012. And what better way to kick-off our retrospective than with a healthy helping of male meat—the shirtless variety.
Our first year-end poll is dedicated to all those movie men who so bravely took of their tops for our viewing pleasure. And in a year relatively devoid of Ryan Gosling and Taylor Lautner abdominals, there were still plenty of Hunky McHunkersons to drool over. Thankfully. Let’s take a closer look at the contenders:
Taylor Kitsch, “John Carter”
The sci-fi fantasy may have landed with a clunk, but there was nothing dull about nearly two hours of shirtless Taylor Kitsch. In fact, we’d describe it as out of this world.
Armie Hammer, “Mirror Mirror”
This is no fairy tale: Armie Hammer is one hell of a Pectoral, er, Prince Charming.
The entire cast, “Magic Mike”
We’re just going to go ahead and pretend Chan Man and Co. won’t win this poll by a landslide.
Andrew Garfield, “The Amazing Spider-Man”
Cuts and bruises can’t conceal Andrew’s web of rippling muscles. (We couldn’t be more jealous, Emma…)
Ryan Guzman, “Step Up Revolution”
If the “Step Up” movies have taught us anything, it’s that dance and T-shirts are mortal enemies.
