ESPN’s Body Issue Confirms That We Want An Athlete’s Body

ESPN‘s fourth annual Body Issue is out and we are all drooling over this year’s athletes. Honestly, who even knew that the human body was capable of looking like this? The English dictionary needs to seriously be updated to include a word that fully defines just how really, really ridiculously good looking these champions are, because calling them “toned” or “hot” seems like the understatements of the century. Regardless of their sport, from golfing to surfing to running, these athletes show how exercise does miracles for one’s physique and confirm that we all need to really start using our gym memberships…or better yet, purchase a gym membership.

While looking at ESPN‘s photos may make you want to never wear a bikini again, don’t lose all hope: these sports’ superstars actually give us a pretty refreshing view on body image. Rather, viewing their bodies as machines that must perform at the highest level possible, the Olympians seem more accepting of their figures and less concerned about their weight — it’s really refreshing to see bodies in a magazine that aren’t stick thin. Check out what some of these athletes have to say about their bodies. It seems some of them have more than just athletic skill but also have a pretty good knack for inspiring and entertaining us.

Maya Gabeira: “Most women are afraid of being too strong. When you surf, your muscles get bigger, especially your shoulders.”

Danell Leyva: “After I’m done training, all I want to do is eat a huge meal and go to bed. But sometimes I think about trying to get better abs.”

Tyson Chandler: “I’m pretty much a normal person’s size — just stretched out.”

Abby Wambach: “Female athletes are getting very, very thin, but I’m a bigger woman — I have bigger muscles, and that’s OK.”

Maurice Jones-Drew: “I’m a cross between the Hulk and Iron Man.”

Carlos Bocanegra: “We hear from members of the opposite sex that they enjoy our legs.”

Ronda Rousey: “People made fun of my arms and called me ‘Miss Man.’ It wasn’t until I got older that I realized: These people are idiots. I’m fabulous.”

Jose Bautista: “It’s pretty funny that people think I’m supposed to have big arms just because I hit home runs.”

Candace Parker: “The last time I was on the cover [in 2009], I was pregnant, so it’s nice to see the body transform.”

Megan Hodge: “The bodies are different because the positions we have are so different. You have little people, tall people, big, skinny — you have everything.”

Sofia Vergara Turns 40! Celebrate With Her 40 Hottest Looks

Sofia Vergara is blowing these days, appearing as the face of CoverGirl and Diet Pepsi. She has also continued to delight the world playing the hilarious and sexy Gloria Pritchett on ABC’s hit show Modern Family. A two-time Emmy winner, Modern Family has truly become the TV’s ruling comedy with Sofia reigning as its Queen. Adding humor and a kick of muy caliente Spanish flavor into every project she works on, this Colombian beauty has taken hold of Hollywood and keeps us begging for more — just hopefully no more smoking instances like her one on the cover of Vanity Fair Spain. You worried us Sofia, but you’re still a winner in our minds! We just wish we had gotten on the Vergara train earlier when she was making headlines in Central and South America for her acting and modeling career. But hey, we can at least try to make up for lost time, right?

In celebration of Sofia’s 40th birthday today, we have compiled 40 of her very hottest looks. Trust us: you will not be disappointed. This girl has a remarkable ability to make anything look pretty damn sexy with her killer curves and mile wide smile. Enjoy but look with caution: you may develop a girl crush.

MTV Movie Awards 10 Best Dressed: Emmas Watson And Stone Lead The Pack

While Charlize Theron and Kate Beckinsale predictably brought their red carpet A-game, it was the under-25 crop of starlets who caught our eye at tonight’s MTV Movie Awards. Trailblazer Award winner Emma Stone, Wallflower darling Emma Watson and perpetual Best Kiss winner Kristen Stewart each took a risk and pulled it off adorably. Stone went for an unconventionally cut ivory and black Martin Grant dress with matching Brian Atwood pumps, while Watson wore a wildly printed Brood mini and Stewart rocked a fitted Guishem frock. We loved their daring choices, along with Shailene Woodley‘s pantsuit and Kat Graham‘s deep-cut all-black gown. Check out our Top 10 Best Dressed below.

Kristen Stewart And Her Trademark Mini Electrify The MTV Movie Awards

Our favorite ever-evolving style icon Kristen Stewart broke out her skinny stems and slipped on a funky Guishem mini for the MTV Movie Awards. With lightning bolts on the bodice and angular purple streaks down the skirt, we’re digging this edgy, form-fitting frock. Topped off with tousled hair, metallic nails and simple black pumps, she’s surely a contender on our forthcoming Best Dressed list.

Kanye West Looks Super Thrilled To Be At Kim Kardashian’s Jewelry Launch, You Guys

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West go to her jewelry launch in Canada

Ouch. One of the slight downsides of dating is that sometimes you gotta do stuff you don’t really want to do in order to make your partner happy. But come on, Kanye. You could have at least tried to put on a happy face when accompanying Kim Kardashian to the launch of her jewelry line in Toronto last night. Lose the hoodie, put on a real shirt and be supportive! We know, maybe you wanted to catch up on House, give your buddy Jay-Z a call, or just kick up your feet and read that new book you splurged on at Barnes and Nobles. But there’s always tomorrow night, so cheer up. The spotlight will be back on you in no time! Check out more of the not-so-happy twosome in the gallery below.

Charlize Theron’s New Son Makes His Debut, And He’s Cuter Than All The Puppies In The World Combined

Charlize Theron Steps Out With Her New Baby

Forget about every cute thing you’ve ever seen, because Charlize Theron’s new son Jackson has them beat. The actress arrived at LAX yesterday with the extra special carry-on bundled in her arms, giving us our first look at her adopted child. It was definitely worth the wait! Mother and son were followed all through the Los Angeles airport by photographers, and by the time the pair landed in Paris Jackson was throwing some series sass at the paparazzi. We guess he’s kind of over getting his picture taken for a while. So head on down to the gallery below to get your cuteness fix, until we get another sighting!

Beyonce Brings Her A-Game To Met Gala Red Carpet In Givenchy Gown

Okay celebrities, you can all go home now! Because if it was not yet clear that Beyonce is the queen of the world, her show-stopping Givenchy gown at the Met Gala tonight has sent a serious signal: Beyonce is the best. Hands down. Period. The End. Who runs the world? Bey does. Yes, her dress is absolutely amazing, with the see-through, shimmery lace and incredible purple train. (We will fall asleep tonight and every night of the next year dreaming about that to-die-for train. Swoon.) But not just anyone could pull off this gorgeous gown. It’s the singer’s confidence that sells it and makes it such a completely spectacular look. Let’s just hope she saves it for lil Blue to wear one day, too.

Kristen Stewart Rocks Fierce Dress, Fabulous Hair At Met Gala

We’re not going to lie to you guys – we were glued to Vogue‘s livestream of the Met Gala, waiting with excitement for Kristen Stewart‘s arrival. And as usual, the actress did not disappoint. We’ve watched Kristen grow into a fashion icon over the past few years, and tonight’s bold Balenciaga proved just how far she’s come. She’s the face of the fashion house’s new fragrance, and tonight she accompanied their creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, to the event. Her dress and shoes are  from their fall 2012 collection and we think they both suit her red carpet style perfectly – edgy and show-stopping but still young, fresh and most importantly, her. And the hair – oh, can we please talk about her hair for a second? Tousled to perfection, effortless, and completely sexy. Well played, Ms. Stewart! Well played.

Rihanna Goes Chic And Sleek At Met Gala

Rihanna was one of the last stars to arrive at the Met Gala tonight, and boy did she not disappoint. We’re used to Riri rocking wild outfits, but this look was chic and refined. The black Tom Ford gown hugged her body in every right way, the neck line was simple and classic and the conservative long sleeves tossed attention to the sexy cut of the back. She kept her hair up and simple and her heels sky-high. We always expect the unexpected with Rihanna, and this move was no different. Her look tonight was timeless and glamorous but still totally her own.
