10 Awesome Butt Moments in Film
To start off the week, two of our interests combined: movies and butts.
(SPOT.ph) One moment, you're sitting there, munching on popcorn and enjoying the movie. The next second, you're looking right up at the actor's derriere. To pay some well-deserved homage to these excellent rear-ends, we've compiled a list of awesome moments on the big screen that feature some great male backsides. Is your favorite among our 10 picks? It was a...tight race.
This list is not ranked.
1. Hugh Jackman in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past
Hugh Jackman is practically synonymous with Wolverine, and the X-Men films certainly don't shy away from showing off his goods. Fun fact: nudity-filled Game of Thrones writer and showrunner David Benioff also wrote the screenplay for X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
2. Jake Gyllenhaal in Love and Other Drugs
Jamie Randall (Jake Gyllenhaal) is fast with the pharmaceutical sales and the ladies. With a character like that, you're bound to see him au naturel. Heck, even the movie poster hints at potential nudity.
3. John Lloyd Cruz in Close to You
"True friends are hard to find. True love is harder to find." At least that's what the trailer's voiceover said. What wasn't hard to find, however, was the outline of John Lloyd's behind.
4. Channing Tatum in Magic Mike
By day, Mike Lane (Channing Tatum) is a roofer. By night, he is Magic Mike, the main attraction of the Kings of Tampa, a group of male strippers. His performance to Ginuwine's Pony is quite notable.
5. Luis Manzano in Ang Cute ng Ina Mo
Luis Manzano plays Val, the adopted son to patis manufacturer Georgia (Ai-Ai delas Alas). Manzano takes it all off not once, but twice - one as a gag and the other as a hilarious sex scene.
6. Chris Evans in Not Another Teen Movie
In the same vein as the Scary Movie franchise, Not Another Teen Movie spoofs the famous teen movies that came out during the ’80s and ’90s. Chris Evans is the popular jock, Jake, who bets that he can transform the "ugly" girl, Janey (Chyler Leigh) into prom queen material. A particularly memorable scene is Jake's attempt at seduction, wearing nothing but whipped cream. What would Steve Rogers say?
7. Sid Lucero in Muli
Sid Lucero bares it all in the indie film Muli, which was first released during the Cinemalaya Film Festival in 2010. He stars alongside Cogie Domingo, who plays his gay love interest. (Check out Sid Lucero in his 2008 film Selda, where he won the 31st Gawad Urian for Best Actor award.)
8. Michael Fassbender in Shame
Brandon (Michael Fassbender) is a sex addict whose life is disrupted when his sister (Carey Mulligan) arrives unannounced. Fassbender shows more than just his rear in this film, earning that now-infamous George Clooney joke, "...You can play golf like this with your hands behind your back."
9. Chris Hemsworth in Rush
Chris Hemsworth supposedly lost 30 pounds for his role as race-car driver James Hunt, but it didn't stop him from baring his behind on camera during his love scene with Natalie Dormer.
10. Brad Pitt in Troy
While we may not entirely forgive Troy for downplaying Achilles and Patroclus' relationship, the rest of the movie and Brad Pitt's butt definitely make up for it. We’re just going to fan ourselves now, thanks.
