A few weeks ago, my wife and I watched Crazy Stupid Love (I know, I know, we're a little late to the party). In one scene, Ryan Gosling seduces Emma Stone by taking his shirt off.
I turned to my wife to see her reaction. She was beet red and had her jaw wide open. When I asked if she enjoyed the movie, she uttered, "Ryan Gosling really was … fit looking."
(I worked out twice as hard the subsequent day, by the way.)
The fact is, Ryan got in amazing shape for the film. He has become part of a long list of leading men who have exercised and dieted to make their on-screen performance more impactful.

Sure, that gold statuette up for grabs at Sunday's ceremony certainly is shiny, but PEOPLE.com handed out an equally honorable (but, dare we say, much hotter) award: TV's Sexiest Man and Woman.
You voted for your favorite stars (and Emmy nominees) who burn up the screen every time you tune in to your favorite shows. From doe-eyed New Girl star Zooey Deschanel to equal-parts curvy and feisty Modern Family star Sofia Vergara (who jokingly lobbied for votes on ABC's red carpet show), these leading ladies are always easy on the eyes of frequent TV viewers. Also vying for the top spot: Mad Men's Christina Hendricks, Project Runway's Heidi Klum and Scandal's Kerry Washington.
As for the small screen's biggest hunks, the competition was out of this world (literally, for True Blood's Joe Manganiello). But did NCIS: Los Angeles's LL Cool J, Mad Men's Jon Hamm, American Horror Story's Dylan McDermott or Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul take down the werewolf? Read ahead for the winner.

Chicago got a taste of Hollywood over the weekend, as stars made their way to the Windy City for the Lollapalooza music festival, where a slew of acts performed, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Florence + the Machine, Kaskade and Avicii.
Jenny McCarthy, who has been spending a lot of time there with her Chicago Bears beau Brian Urlacher, skipped the festival itself, but took part in some festivities, sans her man.
Arriving at the Gilt City Better than Backstage rooftop brunch, the Playboy cover girl – clad in a pair of M2F Brand Denims and sky high platform shoes – nibbled on veggies and dip, and took in the skyline.
"She looked very happy and seemed really excited to meet Chicagoans at the party," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

The only thing tighter than their lips are their abs, but the cast of True Blood let a few spoilers slip Saturday during a panel at Comic-Con – and it looks like Bon Temps is in store for a particularly steamy summer.
"I sexually eviscerate another cast member in one of the episodes coming up," werewolf hunk Joe Manganiello revealed, after showing off his body-rolling skills to the packed room of thousands of fans.
But the lucky lady in question may not be Anna Paquin's Sookie Stackhouse, who got hot and heavy with Manganiello's Alcide Herveaux earlier this season.

Channing Tatum is taking more than one for the team.
Playing a male stripper in his new film Magic Mike, the actor, 32, embraced all that was necessary to prepare for the role – from working out three hours a day and sticking to strict dairy- and gluten-free diet, to rubbing on self-tanner every morning and waxing his legs.
"It was the most painful thing I'll ever do," he tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "And it's something I'll never do again."

It sure worked for The Full Monty – taking the story of male strippers from the screen to the Broadway musical stage. So why not the new kid on the runaway, Magic Mike?
Apparently, that's the plan already in the works by Channing Tatum, whose own story loosely forms the basis for the new movie, and his screenwriter and producing partner Reid Carolin.
Furthermore, the movie's Alex Pettyfer, 22, says he would "absolutely" do the Broadway version. "I think we should all do the opening night," he tells USA Today about his fellow manscaped costars costars Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer.

Joe Manganiello showed off one lucky lady on Thursday night, when he made an appearance at an event in Beverly Hills.
The Magic Mike star stopped by a private residence to attend the Samsung Galaxy S III launch, where he arrived with a "tall, leggy blonde on his arm," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "His date was usually by his side throughout the whole night."
At one point in the evening, the pair was "canoodling and definitely getting cozy," the source says.
But Manganiello, who seemed like he was "in a great mood," also devoted time to chat with some other celebrities at the party. Ashlee Simpson, Anna Kendrick and a pregnant Anna Faris were among the other famous attendees.

Joe Manganiello bares all for his role as a stripper in Magic Mike, opening next Friday. But even now that filming has ended, he's still not shy about stripping down – sort of.
Manganiello, 35, appeared on The Soup this week, donning a prosthetic beer gut.
"That's right, ladies," the True Blood star deadpanned. "Soak it in. The six-pack is here."

Joe Manganiello brought the heat during a weekend getaway at Las Vegas's Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – where the True Blood hottie partied by the pool.
In Sin City to host the weekly Rehab pool party, the hunky actor spent time hanging out with the hotel's resident deejays outside. He was also spotted chatting about his upcoming flick Magic Mike, in which he plays a stripper.
Earlier, he fueled up for the day with a breakfast of pancakes, eggs and coffee at Mr. Lucky's Café, followed by some R&R at the hotel's Reliquary Spa, where Manganiello got a massage.
After the pool party, Manganiello was spotted dining at 35 Steaks + Martinis with a few friends. But it was a meat-free night for the muscular star, who ordered only a diet soda and wedge salad.
