Zac Efron, Ryan Reynolds, and More Abs of Steel

Amy Jo Jones

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that magazine covers have become more than a little ab-tastic lately?

Not that I'm complaining, no no. Not at all. Nope. It must be that it's summertime and these male stars like Zac Efron are just -- hot. So hot, that they need to take their shirts off. Unless, maybe some of the top minds in publishing have teen-aged daughters at home?

Whatever the reason, feast your eyes on this roundup of this season's manly-man magazine covers and their abs of steel:






While your husband or significant other is trying to explain to you why the referee is waving around a yellow card while you're watching a World Cup match, just nod and picture this Vanity Fair cover featuring soccer superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Didier Drogba. Goooal!


Something tells me that by the looks of things, Kellan Lutz is not in the Twilight of his career.


Ryan Reynolds is featured in the “Must List” issue of Entertainment Weekly. Hmmm. He sure looks tan for being from Canada.


Someone should tell Ryan Phillipe that if he's cold, he should take the jacket off of his head and put it on his body. Or, not.


Who has your favorite abs of steel (male or female)?
