Matthew McConaughey turns 44 today, and we'll tell you what he doesn't want: a shirt. The actor appears on screen so often without one that we can chronicle his movie career history in shirtless moments. He's played surfers and a stripping cowboy, but even when he's a lawyer, he's taking it off. Check out our homage to McConaughey's most memorable shirtless moments on screen over the years.
Usher has never been shy about showing off his fit physique or sharing his workout tips, so it makes total sense he appears as the star of November's Men's Health magazine cover. In the issue, which also marks the publication's 25th anniversary, Usher talks about training for his upcoming role as legendary boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in the movie Hands of Stone. It sounds like it came pretty easy to the R&B star and The Voice coach, who said, "I train like an athlete every day, believe it or not." On the similarities between hitting the ring and hitting the stage, Usher mused, "Fighters and dancers train to gain a measure of control over the outcome. If either deviates from his plan, the result is typically ugly." He added, "I think we all reach a point in life where we're not able to listen to common sense. You almost have to fall to get up sometimes." Usher will likely have a lot to celebrate this month, as his Men's Health cover hits newsstands on Oct. 15, just one day after his 35th birthday.
Tuesday morning, H&M's followers awoke to a behind-the-scenes video for the Autumn 2013 ads, which feature Beckham posing around a locker room in various states of undress. There are, of course, lots of frames in which he's wearing a pair of briefs and little else. But since this is a practical and complete Autumn/Winter collection, there are also long johns, jogging bottoms, and long-sleeved tops, too.

Ryan Lochte made the most of his weekend in Las Vegas, hitting up the Belvedere pool party at Azure at the Palazzo by day and scoping out the nightclub scene when the sun went down. Ryan brought one of his gold medals along to pose on the red carpet, and he stripped down from patriotic board shorts to a pink Speedo. The trip to Vegas is a belated birthday celebration for Ryan, who turned 28 when he was in London for the Olympics. Ryan seems to be making the most of his newfound fame — and single status, which he joked about with Kristen Bell on Leno last week. Lochte also filmed his 90210 cameo while in LA and, of course, checked out some of the hot spots as well.
Lochte's six-pack is a very welcome sight, and while he's currently holding strong in fourth place, he could use some help in actually medaling in our 2012 Shirtless Bracket.
David Beckham is shirtless and clad in tighty-whities in a new crop of ads for his H&M underwear line. The newest images are the second set of promotional pictures David's created with the Swedish retailer. David presented them this morning on his Facebook page with the comment, "Hey everyone, here are a few shots from my new Bodywear range for H&M. Hope you like them." The photos appear to have been taken recently, since David rocked the heavy mustache and soul patch combo earlier this Summer. He's since shaved off the facial hair, and showed his hot, fresh face around the 2012 London Olympics with his three sons, Romeo, Cruz, and Brooklyn, and wife Victoria.
David Beckham is the first man to ever grace the cover of Elle UK, and in honor of the special occasion, he's shirtless and wet in the July 2012 issue! The full feature appears in the July issue of Elle UK, which goes on sale tomorrow. It's a special edition to coincide with the beginning of the Olympics in London, David's hometown. He's been especially active in hyping up the games, and even brought the Olympic flame to the UK earlier this month. In the magazine, David spoke about his dedication to soccer, not fame, and shed some light on his family life with wife Victoria, their sons, and nearly 1-year-old daughter Harper. Here's more from David Beckham in Elle UK:
- On not setting out to be famous: "I never thought about the money, the fame. It never interested me, and it doesn't interest me now. None of that has ever excited me . . ."
- On having a daughter now: "It's great. I love to bite her legs, or shoulders. It's how a baby should be. She's so beautiful. There's no more love for a daughter than there is a son, but it's just different. When they (boys) are kids you can roll them around and they fall to the sides and they pick themselves up and they're fine. Whereas Harper, now, she hits herself just slightly and she cries . . . I still think 'Oh God, I can't believe this, I've got a girl.' And to see the boys with her it's incredible. When they walk into the room, her little face lights up."
- On catching up with his wife: "She comes home and shows me what she's been doing all day and what exciting dresses and bags she's got coming through. And then I say something boring like 'I got kicked today.' But we listen to each other. We try to go out at least once a week, just the two of us, a quiet dinner somewhere. It's not about wearing a nice dress or a nice suit. It's just going out and chatting and having some time together."

Robert Pattinson's shirtless inside the pages of the new Premiere magazine. He spoke with the publication ahead of Cosmopolis's debut at the Cannes Film Festival later this month. The picture pairs Robert with legendary director David Cronenberg, and the actor gamely re-created a handful of scenes from iconic Cronenberg movies like Scanners, Videodrome, and Dead Ringers. Robert spoke about making Cosmopolis inside the magazine. Rob said, "Filming Cosmopolis with David changed something in me. It gave me balls."
In addition to his big Cannes cameo, Robert's also gearing up for his 26th birthday! The actor will welcome his next year on Sunday, and we're celebrating the milestone with a look back at Robert Pattinson's childhood pictures.
The silver screen got a little steamy in 2011, thanks to some of the hottest guys in Hollywood showing off those long hours they put in at the gym.

As we look forward to more hotness in 2012, let's take a look back at the best shirtless movie moments of 2011.
