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).
Here we are yet again swooning over a hot guy in a new video from Jennifer Lopez. But, unlike the last time, when JLo introduced us to the man who would turn out to be our immortal beloved, William Levy, this time out we recognized the stud right from the start. British supermodel David Gandy is Lopez’s lover in her recently released video for ‘First Love.’ Dang, Jenny from the block! You have such great taste in guys … in videos.

The jaw-droppingly gorgeous James Maslow appears shirtless on the cover of the July issue of FitnessRx for Men magazine. The Big Time Rush and ‘Dancing With the Stars’ stud shows off his slathered-with-oil and muscular but trim body with a wet suit covering only his bottom half. Equally spectacular is the rest of the photo shoot, with photographer Gregory James in Los Angeles and at Venice Beach, Calif.’s legendary Muscle Beach. Like Ryan Gosling in ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love,’ Maslow is so perfect he looks Photoshopped — but he definitely isn’t. The video below proves this indisputable fact. We guesstimate that he is shirtless in 99.99 percent of the 13-minute clip, showing him flexing, pumping, stretching and generally working up a a sweat — mostly in his fans! Clear your schedule for the rest of the afternoon and enjoy.

We started the week off applauding Jared Leto — let’s end the week celebrating him, too! The actor-musician won the first Academy Award last Sunday, taking the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his impressive and heartbreaking turn in ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’ Perfect speech
We were almost too lost in the deep blue pools of his eyes and luxurious mane of hair to concentrate on his speech, but it was perfect and poignant. We couldn’t have loved it any more, and we’ve loved him since he first appeared on our radar a million years ago on the cult fave TV series ‘My So-Called Life.’ The fact that he’s since become a huge rock star with band 30 Seconds to Mars is a total bonus. The more Jared Leto, the better! Enjoy these dreamy Jared Leto gifs:
R&B singer Trey Songz is a publicity genius. He’s got a slew of projects to promote, but nothing gets the publicity machine whirring like showing some selfie skin (right, Nick Jonas?). So let’s mention his recent Nicki Minaj remix and that Mariah Carey duet — and don’t forget that he only just revealed his upcoming album will be called ‘Trigga’ — but we’re going to focus on the fact that he’s loving his new Calvins, and so are we!
“Thanks Calvin Klein for the delivery #MyCalvins” and “I like these too! #MyCalvins,” he wrote alongside the pair of pics, posted on his Instagram account yesterday. Thank you, Calvin Klein, and thank you, Trey Songz! We’ll happily promote the heck out of anything you do, as long as it’s this sexy:
Remember when Britney Spears used to have terrible taste in men? Brit’s come a long way, baby, with her choice of co-star in her latest video. Twenty-eight-year-old Norwegian stud Alexander Kjellevik mostly takes off his shirt and looks stunning in the clip for “Perfume,” which dropped earlier today. We totally approve.
Kjellevik is a model-turned-hopeful-actor who has starred in campaigns for designers including Emporio Armani, John Varvatos and Ermanno Scervino. Let’s hope we see a lot more of him — in anything, but better if nothing at all!
Check out sexy photos of Alexander Kjellevik below:
The Backstreet Boys are back again — and, woohoo, a couple of them are even topless this time out! In BSB’s brand-new video, “Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of),” two of the five guys go shirtless for their scenes, showing us what it is that they’ve got. And what do they have? Brian Littrell, pictured above, has got a killer body that he’s done a good job of hiding all this time. A.J. McLean has the multitude of colorful tattoos and the playoff beard. We like the song, we dig the video and we love these screenshots:
