You would think there would be scores of shirtless pictures of male celebrities just floating about. Not so much, people—2010 seems to have been the year of the shy bloke, especially compared to the 100 Hottest Celeb Bikini Pics of 2010 we put together. A couple of our favorites did not disappoint, though. The likes of David Beckham, Gerard Butler and Kellan Lutz, among others, all bared their torsos this year. We found these studs on soccer fields, on beaches, on television sets, and brought them to you as a have-a-great-new year present! Enjoy the drool-worthy gallery below.

Paris and Nicky Hilton helped keep Cannes classy by shaking their moneyspenders at Chopard’s 150th Anniversary Party last night, with Paris grabbing the mic just in case anyone was blissfully unaware they were spending time in her presence (when are we going to see Paris in a skimpy swimsuit? It’s a Cannes tradition!) . Sadly, fellow partygoer Lindsay Lohan wasn’t nearly as outgoing as Paris, keeping her distance from her socialite rival (maybe with LiLo’s next court date so close, she didn’t want to risk throwing a glass). Other celebs at the event included Kate Beckinsale, Marion Cotillard, Eva Herzigova and celebrity better halves David Furnish and Jesus Luz. Soak up the soiree in the gallery below.
Oh my gahhh, mooommm!! You are not wearing a short skirt and thigh-high boots to a musical, are you?? Madonna stepped out with boy toy Jesus Luz to see Fela last night, wearing an ensemble one doesn’t usually associate with middle aged women hanging around on Broadway (at least not in the post-Giuliani Times Square). To be fair, this was certainly a more glamorous night on the town than when they checked out Avatar in matching ski masks. And wearing such a skimpy outfit to the theater does suggest the critically acclaimed Fela is not your mama’s musical—unless you’re Lourdes Leon.
See the pair skip off to the clubs after the show in the gallery below.

Call him a boy-toy if you must, but Jesus Luz will have you know that even though he and Madonna are occasionally hot, then cold, (yes then no), he considers her his wife.
Luz gave an interview recently with Brazil’s RG Vogue magazine and explained that even though they’ve had a rocky relationship, he and Madonna are committed, saying “I consider myself a married man. I have a family. At my age, my father was married, my mother gave birth to me when she was 15.” Luz does seem invested in Madonna’s brood, and hey, if Ashton and Demi make it work, who are we to judge? The couple has dated for just over a year, which is about how old Jesus was when “Like A Prayer” came out. Blows the mind a little, doesn’t it? [Photo: Getty Images]
Next time you see a confused, scraggly-bearded young man wandering around NYC with a suitcase, remember…whatsoever you do the least of your brothers, so you do unto Jesus Luz. Madonna‘s man was in Soho yesterday, buying luggage and looking just a little disconcerted by the bright lights, big noises and cold weather. Maybe the Material Mom wanted to remind her boy toy what a scary world it can be out there for a young model/DJ…40 days and 40 nights in the urban wilderness would do him good before his debut single gets crucified.

A month after tabs claimed Jesus Luz dumped Madonna, the Material Mom has reportedly snagged her boytoy a record deal. According to The Sun, Warner Bros.—Madge’s old label—will release the studmuffin’s debut single, “We Came From Light,” early this summer (can’t waaait!). Ironically, the deal may meaning hearing a lot more Madonna; in exchange for humoring the model/DJ, WB will get to put some of her old hits in heavy-saturation ad campaigns. “Getting him on the books wasn’t completely plain-sailing,” says their source. “There was a little give and take between her and execs, but a compromise was eventually settled upon.”
If “We Came From Light” winds up the next “Popozao” (WB’s deal reportedly gives them the option to release a full album, but no commitment), expect some sniffles—according to Page Six, Luz burst into tears when a partygoer at Rio’s Carnival last week dumped a beer on his head, screaming “Get out of here, I don’t wanna see your face here anymore!” Don’t listen to him, Jesus. Watching you caper on the beach, as you did yesterday in Rio, is no hassle at all.

When tabloids tried to play up the frustratingly amicable split between Madonna and Jesus Luz, we guessed the Material Mom took his departure in stride because she knew there was plenty more where that chiseled DJ/model came from. Proving the point (well, maybe we should avoid the word “proof” when discussing these things) is the Daily Mail‘s assertion that Madge is slowly sinking her talons into another spicy studmuffin, model/Single Man actor Jon Kortajarena. The pair supposedly first met at the film’s New York premiere last December. “Jon looked slightly uncomfortable with the attention but was, nonetheless, flattered,” said their source. “She has made some enquiries about him and has found out a bit more about some of his future modeling gigs in a bid to use her influence to his advantage. She is going to invite him to some social events in New York.” Some social events…in her pants.
Of course, no tabloid would let Madonna go back to the beefcake buffet table with pride, so this news has to really be about her alleged resentment towards the prodigal Luz. “She’s furious and feels humiliated…She feels he has her to thank for his modeling success and is calling all her designer friends, telling them not to use him.” Like his return to obscurity wasn’t already a given. People, let a player play! We just hope Mr. Kortajarena can think up dates more glamorous than donning ski masks to see Avatar.

Looks like this boy’s no longer a toy! The Chicago Sun-Times says that model-DJ Jesus Luz has said goodbye to sugar mama Madonna. “Apparently, the 23-year-old Brazilian realized their age difference (she’s 51) and overall lack of mutual interests nixed a long-term relationship,” reports columnist Bill Zwecker (maybe she didn’t like Avatar as much as he did). While we believe Madonna wouldn’t sweat losing her studmuffin—there’s plenty more where that came from—we’re a little surprised with Luz’s independence. Isn’t this supposed to go “Jesus and Madonna fight in public, Madonna dumps him, Jesus sues for palimony, loses, writes a tell-all and spends the rest of his life doing reality shows”? While there’s still time for the story to get pathetic, it’s almost unnerving to see a celebrity couple like this split with such class.
Underlining the peculiar lack of drama are blogs that can’t help but change what little story there is to make some. Gossip Girls, though quoting the same article and nothing else, says Madonna “kicked Jesus to the curb” and “sent her boytoy packing.” Likewise, Perez somehow gets “not so amicable” out of the Sun-Times‘ “totally amicable.” Just wait for another source to offer some actual dirt, guys.

Jesus Luz really isn’t in a position to be jealous of sugarmama Madonna, but comparing and contrasting her dates with Luz and Sean Penn over the last two nights, we wouldn’t blame the model for feeling a little slighted. Madonna and her stud-of-choice slipped off to see Avatar in NYC Wednesday, with the Material Girl stealing one of Rihanna‘s mammoth winter hats and a face mask more appropriate for Lady Gaga. Staying warm is more important than looking beautiful, right?
Not on Thursday, when Madge met with ex-husband Penn at Adour in the St. Regis Hotel. Inversely covering only her eyes, she looked every part the glamorous woman as she headed in for a three-and-a-half hour visit. We’re trying to restrain ourselves from reading too much into the length of their visit (think how much they have to talk about!) and the size of the bag Madonna brought (it’s probably full of…uh…stuff her kids made!), but with the two-time Oscar winner really truly no longer with Robin Wright (right?), we can’t deny we’d love to see these long-ago lovebirds get together more often.

It looks like Jesus Luz is trying to add to his resume and prove he’s more than Madonna‘s boy toy. The Brazilian hottie DJed on Thursday November 19th at the Grey Goose Presents DJ Manero and DJ Jesus Luz at New York City’s Hotel on Rivington Penthouse. This was not his first DJ gig, however. Jesus was reportedly paid $10,000 to DJ in Brazil last month. At least he’s got a backup plan if his career as Madge’s arm candy doesn’t work out!
