The 10 Fittest Male Celebrities In Hollywood
Chris Hemsworth has problems most men would envy. For example, he put on so much muscle while he was preparing to play "Thor" that his costume didn't fit.

The Australian star told the Los Angeles Times in 2011: "I got the part and immediately started looking at the comic books, and the guy is 500 pounds or something and looks like Schwarzenegger. And I thought, 'OK, I'm not gonna get to that.' But I have to get bigger. (The filmmakers) kept saying 'Yeah, get as big as you can, as big as you can.'"

The "Thor" costume was altered to fit his new shape, and movie execs ordered Hemsworth to g...

Hollywood's Hottest Shirtless Men
Usually it's the women who are objectified in Hollywood, but the men are fair game too! These guys are hard working actors, singers, and athletes who either take time to work out for their six-pack abs or just let nature take its course.

Professional dancers Val and Maskim Chmerkovskiy (pictured above) make sure they're in good shape for "Dancing With The Stars." The two brothers, who were born in the Ukraine, obviously work hard for their physiques.

Some male stars spend a lot of time bulking up at the gym, while others are slim and trim. Check out our gallery of seriously shirtless cele...

Matthew McConaughey was the "engine" that made 'Dallas Buyers Club' possible.

He told People magazine: "He became the engine that pulls the train out of the station and brings it to its destination."

And behind the 44-year-old star - who lost 47lbs for his role in the movie - is his family, and Jean-Marc says his wife, Camila Alves, is a huge influenc...

Instead of celebrating his win with his colleagues, the actor was overheard telling her: "We won't stay at the afterparty long - I want to go home and make another baby!"

The couple have three children: Levi, 5, Vida, 4, and 14-month-old Livingston.

'True Detective': Can Matthew McConaughey Earn An Emmy For His Role?

True Detective
The first season of True Detective concludes on HBO Sunday, so I thought it was time to say a few words about it. Started a little slow - I guess I was expecting something more along the lines of Criminal Minds and its pacing - but True Detective has become one of my favorite shows in the history of television, with an indelibly philosophic and anguished detective we've never seen the likes of before on TV and likely never will again.

Matthew McConaughey won the Oscar Sunday night for Dallas Buyers Club and he deserves an Emmy and more for his portrayal of Rust Cohle (in 1995 and 2012, and...

Matthew McConaughey Says He Won't Return For 'True Detective' Season 2

Matthew McConaughey
Now that he's an Oscar-winner, Matthew McConaughey has said he won't be returning to HBO's True Detective if the network greenlights a second season.

The Dallas Buyers Club star explained that actually he and co-star Woody Harrelson won't be back for a second season because the show's initial pitch to HBO said that the show would be based on a different storyline and a different cast each season.

"We won't be back for season two. Season one was finite," he said backstage at the Oscars. "Eight episodes, that's the EOC (end of conversation)."

The first season of the show will come to a clo...

Sexy Male Stars At The 86th Annual Academy Awards
It's usually all about the ladies and who they're wearing on the Oscars red carpet. But there are plenty of guys that look really incredible too.

Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "American Hustle," wore a Tom Ford tuxedo to the event. He was accompanied by his British model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

Jared Leto easily stole the coveted Oscar from Cooper for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club." But we don't think he won the red carpet competition.

Leto's tux was an unusual combination of black and white with a red bow tie. We can forgive him his style choice b...

5 Reasons Why Matthew McConaughey Deserved The Oscar For Best Ac
It was a transformation both physically and emotionally for Matthew McConaughey for his Academy-Award winning role as HIV patient-turned-activist Rod Woodruff in "Dallas Buyers Club." McConaughey, known more for his laid-back Texas attitude than his stellar film work, felt the time was right to dig his teeth into unchartered territory and the pull to portray this character proved too much. Said McConaughey, "I had a real man [to draw from]. I had his diary from two years before he had HIV. I got his humor from that. I got his humanity from that."

Oscar Predictions: Does 'Gravity' Carry Enough Weight?

Oscar Predictions: Does 'Gravity' Carry Enough Weight?
For the most part, the major categories at the Oscars are fairly easy to predict. But some years there are upset winners (‘Shakespeare in Love,’ Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Binoche, Adrien Brody, to name a few) that remind us that anything can happen.

This year is a little different. Who remembers a year where the race for Best Picture is down to three films, two of which are so close that they tied at the Producers’ Guild? It seems like there are some definite locks this year (Hello, Cate Blanchett) but you read it here: Nothing is guaranteed. Nothing.

That said, here are the most likely...
