And they say Americans are modest…
It's tough to write a list of the sexy stars who've generously given us plenty of eye candy this year without making it all about the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but we promise you, 2016 was filled with So. Many. Hot. People.
Lovely ladies like the aforementioned reality stars and models like Gigi Hadid and Ashley Graham have been flaunting their assets all over social media, magazine covers, and runways, while buff dudes like Baywatch's Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron and former boy bander Nick Jonas have left us practically drooling over their biceps (and everything else).
Even his incredibly jacked co-star Zac Efron (who obviously makes this list -- keep reading!) is impressed by The Rock's fit focus. "[Dwayne's] getting less sleep than I am, and he already did a post on Instagram at 5:30, doing the most ridiculous leg day you've ever seen," he told Men's Fitness. "He's reached nirvana -- muscle nirvana."
The blond beauty has been killing it in the fashion world since she was signed to IMG Models three years ago, but in 2016 , she truly became a supermodel. Gigi appeared in so many worldwide Fashion Week shows, it became tough to find a major label she didn’t walk for, and she even came to households nationwide as co-host of the American Music Awards in November. But her biggest -- and sexiest -- moment of all? Her second Victoria's Secret Fashion Show appearance, namely that strappy black get-up.
We weren't the only ones looking forward to her runway prowess in Paris, France -- so was Gigi. "I am so excited to be here. I cannot even contain myself," she told ET's Kevin Frazier while getting ready for the highly-anticipated show backstage. "I have been a fan of the show since I was a kid. This is my second year, but I do not think it will ever stop feeling like a dream come true. It is literally the greatest."
Must we show you that Baywatch trailer again? Johnson's revival co-star is so buff, you could bounce a quarter off any part of him, and it would probably fly further than a homerun ball. We were going to write more words about him, but honestly, between Baywatch sneak peeks and his shirtless Neighbors 2 scenes, we've been rendered speechless. Seriously, dude's got an 8-pack. There might even be 10 packs there.
We know you still haven't quite recovered from the straight-up swoonfest that was Ryan shirtless in Blade: Trinity, but we promise, he's only gotten better with age. Not only was Deadpool the funniest superhero flick to come out this year (if not ever), he was hot AF and showing off his chest as often as he slung one-liners. Blake Lively, you are one lucky, lucky lady.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is such a presence on social media -- and quite possibly a bigger fan of the figure-flaunting selfie than her big sis, Kim -- that it's very difficult to pick just one moment from her year of lip kit dominance. That being said, our jaws dropped when Kylie re-created Christina Aguilera's "dirrty" days for Halloween -- and then again for Xtina's early birthday celebrations in December. But the sultry pics didn't stop at Snapchat -- she now has her own official 2017 calendar, which was shot by none other than Terry Richardson. It's stupid sexy and so very, very Kylie.
"I'm trying to change how women think about themselves. Some people just don't get it," she said of her mission to help others in Self magazine's October issue. "I've been denied jobs because I was too big. I've also been denied jobs because I was too small. At the end of the day, I'm never going to conform to what anybody wants. This is my body; I'm happy in it."
"Totally selfishly, [sex] is so much better for me being jacked," the 36-year-old actor -- who welcomed his second child with Emily this summer -- told ELLE magazine. "Because you feel so much more confident and you see yourself as this much more sexual person, which is really fun."
Sure, the Scottish DJ-producer split from Taylor Swift earlier this year, but he's not crying over it -- he's hitting the gym hardcore and showing off his hard work in itty bitty blue speedos and tighty whities. Sure, he may be crying there, but who cares when he looks like this.
