2009 in (Shirtless) Pictures

2009 Favorites

Yes, I know that we’re well more than a week into 2010 but this has become some sort of a tradition since last year so let’s have a quick (or thorough, whichever you prefer) look back into a good year of shirtlessness; from news to films to television to everyday discoveries. Your crotches will thank you for this! 

2009 kicked off to a good start, and by a good start I really mean watching a GIF of Mike Rowe doing the unknown behind a car’s door. Because he’s the gift that keeps on giving, Mike can be seen throughout the year, although with a rather large gap in between.

The dad craze continues with Dan Payne in “Mulligans”. That said, someone should take it easy with the razor although I’ll take whatever I can get!

By now, Guys with iPhones is a household name and the cream of the crop can be found here, here, here and here (are you still with me), and a lot of important discoveries were made including our own Adorkable of the Month, the ultimate crowd favorite Preston aka iPhone Hottie aka That Hot Guy in Scrubs.

Could this be an Australian version of mah husband?

The hottest siblings on “Amazing Race”? You decide, while I go try to wash my brain with some extra strong detergent. And does CBS stand for Crotch-Blur-Station?

Speaking of brothers, Ben Foster’s little brother has all grown up, and he’s keen to share the wealth. I’d like to think he’s the tolerable version of Matthew McConaughey, because no matter how often the shirt is off — he does the same to me everytime, which is a freakin’ lot. From brushing his teeth in a towel to walking around in boxer brief to frolicking with furry hotness Peter Sarsgaard to just looking hot with scruff, the breakthrough shirtlessness of the year definitely goes to this one.

Still on the topic on little brothers all grown up, Scott Evans should get the same award for his generosity on “One Life to Live” — although I think he really should be in a shirtless scene with Chris. In towels. Hmmm… I wonder if there’s any detergent left (please get it)? One thing for sure, there’s no guessing game for this one as the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Now that I’ve mentioned Peter Sarsgaard, would you live in a cave for this? I would. If you prefer a slight taming (on the head), this might suit your fancy. Don’t worry, hot chunk is still present.

2009 was a good year in TV chunk as well, as seen on Jay Mohr, Chris Pratt, Jim ParrackJohn Corbett and Patrick Warburton.

HBO’s “Hung” has to be the hottest television series of 2009, with the ultimate DOMD, Thomas Jane. That weary suburban dad thing gets me forever and always!

Not to be outdone by Thomas Jane, Richard Burgi (which is the first item on my DOMD list) has also made regular appearances in my wet dreams last year. Smooth, but when you’re in your 50s and look like this, you don’t complain.

However you want to pronounce it, Hilmir Snær Guðnason delivers. Every time!

Are you on team Bradley Cooper or team Ryan Reynolds? Whichever team you’re in, rest assured that there’s plenty of (clipped) fuzz available.

We have now established the fact that follicle devils Nivea and Gillette are our enemies. The war against fuzz will never end as long as these guys are here to stay (and educate). Blasphemy! Proceed above links in caution.

The Baldwin brothers are the definition of hairy Hollywood (except Stephen, of course), so it is only natural that we investigate further into Alec’s extensive filmography; “Miami Blues“, “The Marrying Man“, “The Getaway” and a peek at the fuzz, twenty years later. Not sure what’s going on with William’s on and off situation, but at least Stephen is consistent.

A look at The Little Mermaid, and how the film affected my taste in men subliminally.

Are we going to reality TV hell for this? My brain said no but my crotch said yes. A sexed up human version of Papa smurf, it does exist.

Russell Hantz Shirtless

Shawn Christian. Two words are enough to make you wake up and realize that such beautiful man does exist. It is oh so very clear that we’re a little crazy about this walking sex, don’t you think?

Finally, if it’s any indication — this year belongs to English born, furry chested Australian actor Sam Worthington. If you can resist the temptation to grab a scissor or even a lawnmower, click here to experience his shirtlessness from “MacBeth”.

I am giving myself a pat on the bad for not mentioning any of mah husbands, because I usually do that subconsciously. And ecause I’m just one mere mortal being, if you have favorite posts of the year that you’d like to see listed here as well, feel free to add them in the comments. I think I’ve said it before, but once more because I couldn’t have said it enough — thanks to all of you who made 2009 a wonderful year of shirtlessness and here’s to another good one!
