The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a social-media phenomenon that has raised awareness of the neurodegenerative disease to new heights as well as tens of millions of dollars to help fight it. By now, you’ve probably witnessed scores of your own friends dousing themselves with ice-cold water and seen videos of dozens of celebrities doing the same, all while challenging their other famous friends. We’ve gathered up all the hunky celebrity men we could find taking on the challenge and posted the videos for your enjoyment below. We’re still waiting for Channing Tatum to answer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s call and Chris Hemsworth [UPDATE: He did it and we have it!] to respond to Robert Downey Jr., and we are wondering when someone will finally get around to challenging Hugh Jackman [UPDATE: Done! See below!], Alex O’Loughlin [UPDATE: Done! Watch it below!], Taylor Kinney, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Alexander Skarsgard. And you can’t convince us that David Beckham isn’t working on his own video this very second! [UPDATE: Becks did it! Evidence below!]
You can learn more about this awful disease at the ALS Association website before donating whatever amount you can online at the same link.
In the meantime, enjoy videos from hot athletes and actors and more, including ‘Dancing With the Stars’ hottie Derek Hough, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez and ‘Arrow’ hunk Stephen Amell (pictured above, left to right).
Soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has a new title to enjoy alongside his recent FIFA Ballon d’Or: Fittest Man Alive! Men’s Health makes the claim on the cover of its September 2014 issue, and the accompanying photos provide evidence that the magazine’s bold assertion just might be completely correct. The Real Madrid stud appears shirtless in low-slung jeans that show a peek of his own CR7 underwear. As is Cristiano’s style — last seen on his totally naked Vogue cover — there isn’t a hair on his head out of place. Sadly, there also isn’t a single hair to found on his entire body.
The astonishingly apparent V-shape to his upper body that isn’t Photoshopped in the least, as proven by the behind-the-scenes video of his Men’s Health photo shoot below. And for those wondering how he gets that amazing body, you can get a sneak peak at the “Fittest Man Alive” cover story here.

Consider this Top 50 Hottest World Cup Players list your ultimate guide to the sexiest guys of Brazil 2014. We make that claim with real authority, because we just spent countless hours poring over photos of each and every one of the tournament’s 736 players. Yes, even No. 3 keepers and perennially unused substitutes. To be honest, our eyes are crossed from checking out all the beautiful men playing the Beautiful Game!
You’ll find at least one player from each of the participating 32 countries, and sometimes two. When there were ties, we went to our own version of a penalty shootout, in which we weighed such things as on-pitch performance and playing time with predilections for shirtless pictures and overall fine form (in both senses of the phrase).
We resisted, once again, including Cristiano Ronaldo on a list such as this, since he appears on every other post like it on the entire World Wide Web. But he’s not only the best footballer in the world right now, he’s arguably the best-looking player. And, at the very least, we can all agree he is certainly the best man-scaped one. But we also experienced some pleasant revelations on the 23-man rosters, including Japan’s adorable fashionplate Atsuto Uchida and Ghana’s gorgeous goalie Adam Kwarasey. In addition, we are proud to announce that we are doing our part for U.S.-Iranian relations by featuring the Adam Lambert of Iran, the fun and foxy Alireza Haghighifan.
Our sincere hope is that the results of our research lead to every single match holding at least some interest for you — even if you don’t find soccer as a sport the least bit interesting. The World Cup tournament runs through July 13, so you have plenty of time to check out our Top 50 Hottest World Cup Players 2014, both on the field and in these pics:
Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo shows off his perfectly toned legs in training over the weekend. Alas, not is all well with those thrilling thighs. Yes, Team Portugal’s main man suffered a leg injury that is casting doubt on his full participation in the upcoming World Cup. While we’d really miss seeing him on soccer’s greatest stage, his absence would be a boon to our boys on Team USA, improving their chances of getting out of the Group of Death (Portugal, USA, Germany and Ghana). In fact, in our favorite story of yet to come out of the World Cup, a witch doctor in Ghana is taking credit for Crissy’s injury.
Cristiano Ronaldo is clearly having a moment. Fortunately for us, he’s having it wearing as little clothing as possible! The soccer superstar’s latest public exhibition of skin came over the long holiday weekend, when his team Real Madrid won the Champions League final. Cristiano is catching flak in some circles for removing his shirt after scoring on a penalty kick. His topless celebration was a little over the top, but who are we to criticize? All love, Cristiano, all love — until your Portugal plays the U.S. in the World Cup in a couple of weeks! We wish you zero goals, but feel free to remove your jersey nevertheless.
Enjoy photos and gifs of Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirtless celebration:
Well, well, well, isn’t this a pleasant surprise: Cristiano Ronaldo gets naked for the latest issue of Vogue Espana. While we see parts of the Real Madrid player we’ve never seen in his many underwear photos, his girlfriend — the equally smoking-hot Irina Shayk — is unfortunately covering up the goods. (Cockblocked!) The soccer superstar and the supermodel dress down for and sex up the June 2014 issue of the magazine for the cover story Amor y Futbol. This is the first major coverage we’ve seen in the lead up to the 2014 World Cup, and if this is any indication, this is going to be one scorching summer!
