Controlling Interest: Shaun T For MEN'S HEALTH Comments (0)
  Shaun-T-5 Shaun-T-4 Shaun-T-3 Shaun-T-2

Shaun-T-1Fitness guru Shaun T is the star of Men's Health (January/February 2015). In the feature by Oliver Broudy (shot by Ture Lillegraven), the guy with the body of death asserts:

“There are very few things that you can control totally in your life. One is your body: That's where you begin.”

Gee, I'm not sure I agree with him about being able to totally control one's body...Depending on how much money you make, you can control what you put in it, and depending on your relative wealth, you can control what exercise you get. It stops there. And your body stops, too, one day—without any input from you.

But he's nice to look at.

Charlie Hunnam is kickin' ass on Sons of Anarchy, but gay fans remember him from Queer as Folk. In Men's Health (December 2014), he recalls how he got the gig:

“When Hunnam's first talent agency in England tried to pigeonhole him as a model, he went rogue and found an acting gig on a kids' show called Byker Grove. Then he returned to the agency and said, 'You didn't get me this job, but as a good-faith gesture, I'm going to give you the commission  But you need to start sending me out on stuff.' The agency listened. His next role was on Queer as Folk, which opened the door to Hollywood.”

Unique Mystique: Russell Wilson For MEN'S HEALTH Comments (0)
  Mens-Health-3 Mens Health-2 Mens-Health-4 Mens-Health-5

Football star Russell Wilson covers Men's Health (October 2014), appearing in a spread shot by Ture Lillegraven. Inside, he offers advice:

“Be unique. Do something that not very many people have done before.”

I'm okay with being conventional if you're good at it. Looking good is a plus.

More! More! More!: Cristiano Ronaldo For MEN'S HEALTH Comments (0)
  Cristiano-Ronaldo-8 Cristiano-Ronaldo-1 Cristiano-Ronaldo-3 Cristiano-Ronaldo-4 Cristiano-Ronaldo-5 Cristiano-Ronaldo-6 Cristiano-Ronaldo-7

Cristiano Ronaldo covers Men's Health (September 2014), posing for Peter Hapak. The cover—and also the back cover (the latter of which is the second image in the gallery) is too retouched for my taste. In brightening the whites of his eyes and in touching up his skin, an already manscaped-to-death dude gets even waxier.

Cristiano-Ronaldo-2Of course, he's still gorgeous, as are the pictures inside.

Ronaldo says, of his infamous humorlessness:

“I always try to improve. Tomorrow I will be better than today, and next year will be better than this one. If I score 50 goals, I want 55. Some people say I'm too serious on the pitch, not smiling and so on. It is because I'm focused 100 percent on every game. I always want more and more.”

Which is what a lot of gay men would be asking for, given some alone time with Ronaldo.

Hold The Date: Hugh Jackman Gets Naked Right On Schedule Comments (0)

Hugh Jackman is on Men's Health (June 2014) for the approximately zillionth time. He speaks with the magazine, saying the best way to stay fit is to keep moving. (Which, in my experience, does not grow giant muscles past age 40 overnight, but okay.)

On his nude scene in the new X-Men flick, he says:

“There's a naked shot in this one. Not front naked—it's PG-13—but full-body. So I made it very clear that I wanted to know the date I'd be shooting that stuff. That was May 21 [2013]. And I remember about three weeks before that, I hear, 'Oh, we're having some trouble with the day, we might push it off a few weeks.' I said, 'Absolutely not! I don't care, you can push anything back you want, but I'm naked on that day!'”

In Praise Of Older Women: Aaron Taylor-Johnson Covers MEN'S HEALTH Comments (0)

Men's Health (May 2014) sports Aaron Taylor-Johnson of Godzilla on its cover, promising to clue us in on how he built 15 pounds of muscle for the flick. I'll give you one guess how he really built it, and guess what? It isn't listed in the magazine.

I hadn't realized Taylor-Johnson had pulled a Patrick Dempsey, marrying a filmmaker twice his age (Samantha Taylor-Johnson), with whom he is raising four kids, including two from her previous marriage. Of this family situation, he says the idea he should be sowing oats at Hollywood parties instead of being challenged by fatherhood and marriage is wrong-headed:

“That's bullshit. They're not challenges. People are like, 'Don't you have to work really hard?' And I'm like, 'If you think it's hard, you must be in a shit marriage.'...It's the way I like my life. I like it nonstop.”

Men's Health (April 2014) is offering up "The New 300 Workout," starring Sullivan Stapleton, which promises you will "build muscle, shed pounds, chisel abs."

All it requires is hard work.

And maybe some steroids.

Regardlelss, Stapleton is pretty fine, as seen in the gallery above.
