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.

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