Zac Efron is officially one of the few men in the world considered hotter than 50 Shades of Grey actor Jamie Dornan.
Heat magazine recently released its list of the Hottest Hunks of 2014, and Efron beat 100 other sexy stars to walk away with the honor of being the guy that gals fantasize about the most. Zac’s competition was super-tough — in addition to Christian Grey, it included Superman and a bunch of guys known for looking good in very little clothing.
Here’s a look at the top ten guys on Heat magazine’s list of the 101 Hottest Hunks of 2014:
1. Zac Efron
2. Tom Daley
3. David Beckham
4. Harry Judd
5. Leonardo DiCaprio
6. Bradley Cooper
7. Gary Barlow
8. Jamie Dornan
9. Ryan Gosling
10. Henry Cavill
The list was voted on by Heat magazine readers, and it’s no shock that Zac Efron landed so high on it — he’s definitely dominating the headlines these days. As The Inquisitr previously reported, the Neighbors actor is breaking hearts by getting cozy with Michelle Rodriguez. Zac has even been photographed snapping a shirtless selfie with the Fast & Furious 7 star and performing a “walk of shame” after spending the night at her house.
Zac Efron’s history of losing his shirt probably played a large part in helping him come out ahead of 50 Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan and the other beloved actors on the Hottest Hunks list. Efron can be seen running around shirtless quite a bit in a preview for the July 28th premiere of Running Wild With Bear Grylls.
While shooting the NBC series, Efron got to eat bugs, skydive, crawl across a rope between two cliffs, and sleep in a cave. It looks like there’s a lot of pretty exciting stuff going on, but Zac’s shirtless-ness seems to be getting more attention than his epic adventure in New York’s Catskill Mountains.
Zac Efron also made headlines for getting topless during the MTV Movie Awards back in April. According to Us Weekly, he was accepting the award for “Best Shirtless Performance” when 50 Shades of Grey actress Rita Ora snuck up behind him and ripped his shirt off.
Zac Efron might be the world’s most wanted man right now, but the ab-tastic actor could become yesterday’s news after 50 Shades of Grey fever hits this Thursday. As The Wrap reports, this is when the trailer for the highly-anticipated movie starring Jamie Dornan will finally debut in all its kinky glory.
Beyonce gave the movie about a BDSM-obsessed billionaire a boost by sharing a 50 Shades teaser on Instagram, and Charlie Hunnam helped the movie get more buzz by talking about his decision to walk away from the project. It was also recently revealed that Jamie Dornan will be starring alongside Bradley Cooper in a Weinstein Company movie about a “hot-shot chef.” What’s not to love about a movie that features food and two of the Hottest Hunks of 2014?
According to ABC News, Zac Efron was once a favorite to score the role of Christian Grey. Do you think 2014’s hottest shirtless headline maker would have been a better pick to play the spank-happy ruler of the Red Room of Pain, or did the right hunk get the job?
