If you want proof that 2013 was one of the hottest years ever, consider how many hunks took off their shirts on screen, on social media and in real life! From Henry Cavill to Harry Styles, here are the 13 hottest moments of gratuitous male toplessness in 2013.
The holidays often call for “ugly” sweaters (or as the English politely put it, “Christmas jumpers”) and matching outfits with your siblings. It’s a season of festive garb you’ll likely regret years later, yet not one that excludes our favorite celebrities.
Yesterday, we made the audacious claim that 2013 rocked because there were so many sexy ladies to lust after. Today, we might be eating our words. See, as much 2013 was the year of the gorgeous lady, it was also the year of the handsome hunk. Famous dudes swaggered onto the big (and small) screen and into our hearts. The 13 hot famous guys on this list kept 2013 hot and exciting–and have left us wanting more in 2014.
A lot of very important things happened in 2013. However, the most important thing that happened in 2013 is clearly that famous female hotties upped their game. The 13 women on this list aren’t just physically beautiful, but they’re smart, talented, stylish, brave and funny. We can’t decide if we want to lust after them–or beg them to be our best friend!
If celebrities didn’t Instagram and tweet pics of themselves in Santa hats, how would we know it’s the holidays? Lucky for us, we’ll never find out. Every December, celebs seem to go Christmas-crazy on social media, posting flawlessly filtered pics of themselves in front of trees, wrapping gifts, and making kissy faces in red sequined crop tops (oh hi, Miley Cyrus). And we love it, because for one shining moment, these larger-than-life stars are just as goofy and tis-the-season mad as we are — and they seem almost…normal.
Of course, then we’ll come across a pic of Justin Bieber wearing a wifebeater in what’s meant to be a snowy, wintry scene. Which is not a normal, at all.
In any event, check out our ten favorite superstar holiday pics — from Demi Lovato to Puffy!

It’s undeniable that butts had a huge year — but honestly? Legs got a ton of shine in 2013, too. It seemed like the hottest starlets swanning down red carpets and heating up industry parties had one thing in common: mile-long, endless, taut and toned gams. Whether they were bronzed up and sparkly (a’la Jennifer Lopez and Lea Michele) or model-esque and lanky (like Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift), legs were the years’s sexiest accessory. We even learned that Kristen Stewart had a fabulous — if a slightly moody and grumpy — pair of stems.
Thanks to the popularity of tiny rompers, itsy-bitsy shorts — and those sparkly leotards favored by international pop stars on stage — legs were front and center more than ever. Here, check out the top ten leggiest looks of 2013.

After The Fighter and Silver Linings Playlist, I never doubted that David O. Russell’s American Hustle would be a great film. What surprised me, though, is how it transformed the over-the-top, slightly sleazy aesthetic of its 1978 setting into something truly seductive and sexy. Seriously, I’m scared that men are going to start following Christian Bale’s example and start sporting hairpiece-assisted combovers. When I spoke to Bale, Russell, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, I grilled them about what they found sexy about the era.
The year 2013 has been sprinkled n’ showered with more bling-worthy moments than a person can count. We’ve seen iced out grills rocked by fresh-faced ladies and an assortment of awesome sneakers – recall all those smokin’ pairs worn at the VMAs. But 2013 has been embellishing more than just pearly-white smiles and fancy feet – it has been a year of manicure madness. M.I.A. is working more than just a bedazzled voice, she’s sporting some decked out nails and then some. From glitter polish to rhinestone trimmings, she’s fancy Christmas-tree caliber. And let’s not forget the jazzy tips rocked by Kelly Osbourne, Zooey Deschanel and Emmy Rossum – just to name a few.
Is there anything more perfect than Brad Pitt? He’s got the perfect wife, perfect career, perfect kids, perfect smile, perfect muscular physique and … let’s stop there, because while we could go on all day, we’re pretty sure none of you need convincing. Even his fashion missteps are perfect, in their own special way! It’s true. We can’t entirely fault Brad for those long bleached blonde locks (it was the ’90s) or even the Kate Gosselin-styled ‘do (also ’90s!). And no one else could rock a scraggly, dreaded beard more grandly than Pitt. Also, most of his, shall we say, less-than-ideal stylings were for a role, or for saving New Orleans, or something.
American Hustle and Out of the Furnace star Christian Bale doesn’t exactly have the reputation for being warm and fuzzy. Maybe it’s because he so convincingly played Patrick Bateman in American Psycho, maybe it’s because he famously went off on a crew member on Terminator: Salvation, or maybe it’s just because he doesn’t want the public to know what a really nice guy he is! Is Christian Bale secretly the nicest guy in Hollywood?
