GRATITUDE

PHOTOS: Eight Men We Give Thanks To For Dropping Trou On Camera

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks for the things that matter most. This year one thing we’re thankful for is all the attractive men who have stripped down to their birthday suits on camera. They’ve done a great service over the years.

Of course, there were many qualified candidates to choose from, but we had to narrow it down.

Scroll down to see eight of our most favorites.

Mark Ruffalo

Mark Ruffalo was kind enough to give viewers a peek of his pecker in 2003’s In the Cut. His very brief full frontal was about the only memorable part of the entire film, which was otherwise quite terrible. (He again treated viewers to a glimpse of his goods in 2010’s The Kids Are Alright.)

Alexander Skarsgad

TV star Alexander Skarsgad stripped down for the season six finale of True Blood earlier this year. The leggy blond bared all while sunning himself in the snow before, sadly, catching on fire. But not before flashing his peen on screen. It was ever so delightful.

Jason Segel

Okay, okay, so Jason Segel may not be an obvious choice of men we want to see naked, but he caught us by surprise in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, not only with his unexpected full frontal, but also by how much we enjoyed seeing it.

Denzel Washington

Denzel Washington delighted audiences with his very naked, very chiseled body in Ricochet. The movie may not have been a hit, but Denzel’s nude scene sure was.

Ewan McGregor 

Scottish actor Ewan McGregor is no stranger to taking it all off for the camera. To date, he’s appeared naked in four films — Trainspotting, The Pillow Book, Velvet Goldmine, and Young Adam — and it never gets old. Sadly, in 2011 McGregor said he was done doing nude scenes. Here’s hoping he reconsiders.

Sylvester Stallone

It’s easy to forget, but once upon a time Sylvester Stallone was quite the Italian stallion. The dark brooding eyes. The bulging biceps. He put it all on display in 1994’s The Specialist during a steamy shower scene with erotic thriller queen Sharon Stone.

Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal very kindly stripped down for Love and Other Drugs. His naked body helped make fact that Anne Hathaway co-starred in the film slightly more bearable.

Antonio Banderas

Latin heartthrob Antonio Banderas got us all hot and bothered in Original Sin during a very graphic, mouth-watering sex scene with Angelina Jolie. Words can’t describe what affect seeing Mr. Banderas completely naked and crawling all over her like a hungry animal had on us. It was muy caliente.
