Nudity expert Mr. Skin complied a list of celebrity ladies who took it all off in the name of their art this past year. From Angelina Jolie to Mena Suvari, there were some choice bare babes, but 2008 didn’t slight the men either. There was a whole lot of manhood captured for movies and even network television. Thanks to these hotties, 2008 will be remembered as the year of nude dudes! In honor of these studs, we’ve put together a list of guys who flash more than their smiles at the cameras. Here’s looking at you, boys!
10. Seth Rogen in “Zack and Miri Make A Porno”
The funny guy next door, Seth Rogen always puts a smile on our faces. Thanks to filmmaker Kevin Smith, the comic cutie finally goes nudie. It’s too bad they weren’t allowed to use those images for their billboard ads. We would have loved an attack from a naked 50-foot Rogen.
9. Daniel Radcliffe in Equus
While another nudie nom, Hunter Parish, took it all off on Broadway this year, Harry Potter, er, Daniel Radcliffe made headlines for showing off his, uh, head in Equus and Vogue. From what we’ve seen so far in his career of wand waving, the young wiz is all grown up.
8. David Duchovny from “Californication”
Even though David Duchvony thinks the way he makes sweet, sweet love is “funny looking,” as loyal fans of his smutty Showtime series “Californication,” we’d say his doin’ it looks damn good from any angle. While the second season had his fellow cast members showing some skin — like when his BFF Charlie Runkle (Evan Handler) got caught masturbating at work and bedded a porn star — we’re still waiting for the climax of every episode: a shot of Hank Moody’s magnificent man parts.
7. Kyle McLachlan in “Desperate Housewives”
While heart throb Kyle McLachlan has been streaking and strutting since the 80’s, this year he gave the skinny-minis on “Desperate Housewives” some serious eye candy.
6. Gilles Marini in “Sex In The City: The Movie”
Samantha’s naked neighbor steams up the shower with his hot bod. A former Armani jeans runway model, Gilles Marini’s few seconds of full-frontal is worth the ticket price and proves there are no small parts.
5. Neil Patrick Harris in “How I Met Your Mother”
This season, our dreams came true when we got to see NPH nekked. As ladies, it’s the closest we’ll ever get to this gay star.
4. Hunter Parish from “Weeds”
The sex on “Weeds” gets so physical, Mary-Louise Parker broke her toe. Despite all the drama from his mama, Silas Botwin’s (Hunter Parish) ripped bod stole the show twice. He came back this past season a muscle man and took up with his cougar business partner. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
3. Stephen Moyer from “True Blood”
True Blood gives us an eyeful every episode thanks to its genius pervy creator Alan Ball. While we never tire of ogling the buff sex machine Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), there’s something about Stephen Moyer’s booty that makes us want to … blog. In our favorite scene, he crawls out of the ground, naked, covered in soil, and then gets some nookie from Sookie. What can we say, we like it dirty!
2. James Franco in “Milk”
The New James Dean isn’t afraid to let everybody know he’s got the right stuff, baby. In “Milk,” the biopic of Harvey Milk, Franco, who plays the lead love interest, swims naked in a pool. Clearly, “Milk” does a body good!
1.Jason Segel in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”
Judd Apatow, the creative mind behind “Superbad,” “Pineapple Express,” and “Knocked Up,” has made it his personal mission to remove the stigma around showing the male member. We applaud his naked ambition. Apatow kicked off his campaign with “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” in which Segel’s character gets dumped after taking a shower. He drops his towel in shock, pleasing the crowd, but his character bursts into tears. I guess we’re only happy when it rains.
