This year's MTV Movie Awards features an exciting new category: Best Shirtless Performance. Though the nominees are set for 2013, the lucky MTV Sneak Peek Week attendees who got an early look at Aubrey Plaza's "The To-Do List" discovered a man who could be a contender in next year's shirtless showdown. Former "Friday Night Lights" hunk Scott Porter apparently gets very topless in the movie, which is something Aubrey claimed she was responsible for.
"He told me I was great all the time, and he never had his shirt on, which I requested—even when we weren't filming. And that made me feel safe. I don't know why," she told MTV News.
Unfortunately for Scott, he doesn't find himself especially comfortable acting shirtless, which was something his former "Friday Night Lights" co-star Taylor Kitsch never had a problem with. Apparently Scott makes a point of surrounding himself with costars who like to strip so he doesn't have to.
"I usually get myself on TV shows with Taylor Kitsch or Wilson Bethel or in a movie with Channing Tatum so that I don't have to be the guy who takes his shirt off," Scott explained. "See, that way, they are always taking their shirt off and then they're like, 'No, we don't need two guys taking their shirt off all the time. We just need the one, and Scott, you can keep yours on. We like Channing.' But this one, I did it. I really did it."
This year, the men who took their shirt off for the chance to win a Golden Popcorn (yes, that's the only reason why they did it) are Daniel Craig, Christian Bale, Channing Tatum, Taylor Lautner and Ted. Vote now for who you think should win—and for a chance to re-watch their best shirtless scenes.
