We've all heard the stories of magazines Photoshopping women into unrecognizable versions of themselves, but Sam Claflin just proved it happens to men too.

The 30-year-old actor took to Instagram on Friday to share a swoon-worthy photo of his rock-hard abs and admitted those abs aren't his.

"This picture has been following me around for some years, and well, there are many people I want to thank for it," Claflin began, giving a shoutout to the man whose body was pasted below his head, and the person who took the time to do the pasting.

"To everyone who actually believed (even for a second) that this could be me. Wow. Bless you. Like, really, really thank you. I'm flattered. But it isn't me," he confessed.

"Don't get me wrong. I have worked out before, and I really like it when I do, but to THIS extent? Not something I've done yet. Maybe one day, eh? Right now, I'm enjoying my work and being a Dad for the first time, and it's getting way too close to Christmas for me to spend any free time I DO have in the gym. But bless you," Claflin concluded, adding the hashtags, #dadbod and #imhappyandyoushouldbetoo.
