PHOTOS: Shirtless Celebs Like Nick Jonas, James Franco Helped Make “Selfie” Word Of The Year

The Oxford English Dictionary has finally caught up with the rest of us and decided that “selfie” — the smartphone (preferably shirtless) self-portrait — is not only a real word but is nothing less than the word of the year for 2013. Before you grab your iPhone and start snapping away, take a moment to read our comprehensive self-portrait guide to save yourself from potential embarrassment. OK, now let’s take a moment to give thanks to and look at photos of some of the generous gentlemen who have helped make this historic moment possible.



Nick Jonas

Thanks to this pic, he will now and forever be our favorite JoBro.



James Franco

The hardest-working man in show biz never misses an opportunity to tease us.



Hugh Jackman

While technically not a “selfie” since both his hands are kind of full, we couldn’t resist showing him showing off again.



Andrew Zollner

The Olympic pole vaulter revealed he had a lot of previous experience lifting a huge pole.



George Burgess

The Aussie rugby hunk became a household name, well, in the homes of a lot of Queerty readers anyway, when he bared all in a series of self portraits.



Geraldo Rivera

As the septuagenarian journalist-talk show host noted when he posted his infamous nearly-nude selfie, “70 is the new 50.”

    Jeezas! I threw up in my mouth when I got to Gerardo. Yuk.

  • Dominickj

    Everything was going great until I came to Geraldo.. YIKKKKKKKKKKKKES!!!

  • Jerry12

    I should have read the comments before looking at the pics so I could have avoided Geraldo.

  • jwtraveler

    @Harley: @Dominickj: @Jerry12: What’s with the Geraldo hatefest? He looks damn good for 70. I hope I look that good when I’m his age. Why don’t you 3 a-holes post shirtless pictures so we can all critique your bodies? I bet you don’t dare.

    @jwtraveler: I LOATHE Rivera, and that porn ‘stache is so past it’s freshness date, but I agree with you whole-heartedly. These are three pasty, flabby white boys bitching about a decent-looking 70 year old (torso, anyway).

  • kinseyfiles

    @jwtraveler: You are soooo right! Most of the negative people on this site would never dare show us a pic of themselves. LMAO!

  • michiganstateofmind

    I agree with Kinseyfiles. You guys are so negative. I am so glad you’re not my friends. You twist everything around to fit your own sexual needs. Like any of them would give you a second look lol Make me want to vomit lol.

    Geraldo, no one likes you, no one wants to see your old decreped body. Ever since the Capone vault fiasco and the “there’s a person stranded” snafu, you have NO respect from me.

  • tdx3fan

    I get the Geraldo hatred, but the ageism is so completely rampant and overly stupid. He is hardly “decrepit.” He actually looks damn good for 70. Hell, he looks damn good for forty.

  • Dxley

    Okay. That last photo was totally creepy, not just disgusting bit actually creepy. What the f*ck is he trying to do? Have me throw up on my phone or laptop? This is pure shit. I could have lived without seeing this!!!!

  • BrandoPolo

    Is the shirtless selfie another thing gay dudes invented and perfected long ago that straight celebrities are going to get credit for? Get it together Queerty.
