* Undoubtedly part of the reason for the success of Creator/SylvesterStallone and Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger in their hey day - just like Steve Reeves, Reg Park and the other body builders turned stars of Hercules and other Italian sword and sandal flicks who inspired them. And continues with their successors Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
* The late Burt Lancaster, a former circus acrobat before he took up acting, was one of Hollywood's earliest examples.
* Paul Bettany as Geoffrey Chaucer in ''Film/AKnightsTale''. Spends his entire very memorable introduction sequence (several minutes long) completely naked and in desperate need of a scrubbing. He's naked again not long after that.
* Christopher Atkins as Richard in ''TheBlueLagoon'' is [[WalkingShirtlessScene shirtless throughout the whole movie]] and has many fanservice scenes.
* Chris Evans as Steve Rogers in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' - including ''in-universe'': When he first comes out of the chamber that buffs him up, Agent Carter can't resist reaching out and touching his [[http://cdn01.cdn.justjared.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/shirtless-evans/chris-evans-shirtless-captain-america-01.jpg newly-incredible bare chest]] for a moment.
** Also meta since her actress was overcome by the moment and they got some EnforcedMethodActing for nothing.
** There's also a nurse in the background who holds out a shirt for Steve, gets a second look at him, ''then puts the shirt away.'' She is a ''true'' American hero.
** The very first shot of Steve in ''Film/TheAvengers'' is [[FemaleGaze framed to show off his ass]], and it does occasionally veer back that way.
** Steve also sporadically evokes this in [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier the sequel]] - that tight t-shirt (and later on, the white tank top) ''really'' shows off those muscles...
*** On another note, the titular soldier himself is not all that bad either. He spends nearly all his screentime in ''very'' tight clothing and has a {{shirtless scene}} ([[spoiler:though said scene is FanDisservice]]) and some shots tend to focus on [[ShesGotLegs his legs]].
* ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' is just chock full of naked, shirtless and tiny-swimsuit-wearing Daniel Craig. The scene to the right was pure dumb luck due to where they were shooting (the water was too shallow so Craig couldn't swim and had to stand up). The director decided to ThrowItIn and Craig proved he could live up to Bond's MrFanservice status.
* Salvadore from ''Couples Retreat'' is never seen with a shirt on.
* In ''Film/DateNight'', Holbrooke Grant (MarkWahlberg) spends the whole movie with his shirt off, and just put them on near the end when he's asked for it.
* Creator/ChrisEvans in ''Film/FantasticFour''... when his powers flared up while skiing and somehow turned a snowbank into a jacuzzi, would ''any'' straight woman, gay man, or bisexual have turned down that invite? And watching him [[HandOrObjectUnderwear awkwardly prance around naked]] afterwards...
* ''Film/FrightNight2011''. Gothed-up and [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]] David Tennant.
* ''Film/GalaxyQuest'' lampshades this hilariously, along with many other tropes. During the fight with the giant rock-monster, Jason somehow manages to lose his shirt.
* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'': Lee Byung-hun in a [[ManInWhite white suit]], Lee Byung-hun [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]].
* MarlonBrando had a reputation for playing these, [[IWasQuiteALooker at least when he was young.]]
* Vincent Perez in ''{{Indochine}}'' spends most of his screen time staring vaguely past the camera with his open shirt flapping around his impressive pecs.
* The film ''IntoTheWild''. Emile Hirsch spends a significant part of the film in a state of close up shirtlessness.
* ''Film/IRobot'' starts with Will Smith's character in the shower.
* Averted with Party Boy from Series/{{Jackass}}
* Thor from the 2010 movie ''Kaboom'' is nothing but a Mr. Fanservice.
* Trent, the male protagonist of ''Film/LawnDogs'', has several shirtless scenes, wears shirts with varying numbers of buttons undone, and has a full nude scene near the beginning of the film for good measure. Not to mention all the sweat he works up.
* ''Film/MagicMike'' is a movie about male strippers. The Powers that Be were aware of this, as one of the bonus features of the DVD was all of the stripping scenes strung together without any of that pesky dialogue or plot getting in the way.
* In ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'' Diaval is naked when he is first turned from raven to human. He later wears rather loose shirts that are open - allegedly the intended effect was to make him look like a pirate, but he does show a lot of bare skin, too.
* In The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, Oded Fehr's character Ardeth Bey acts as fan service with fighting scenes and an accent. To some extent most of the male cast including Imhotep...once he is less corpse and all man.
* [[http://thetorchonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/shirtless-taylor-lautner.jpg Taylor Lautner]] in ''NewMoon'' removes his shirt a lot.
* ''Film/TheOutsiders'' is FULL of this. It has a bunch of guys who are usually wearing tight shirts or even no shirts. There's even a scene where Rob Lowe comes out of the shower wearing only a towel. Later, he's laying on the couch with his knees up so it looks like he's naked.
* All three protagonists in ''Film/PainAndGain''.
* The 2003 adaptation of ''Film/PeterPan'' might be the most egregious example on this list. As soon as Peter shows up it's non-stop, maximum-strength teen girl fanservice.
* In [[Film/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians The Lightning Thief]] Creator/LoganLerman makes his bid at becoming a teen sex symbol.
* Pretty much the entire male cast of ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', excepting perhaps some of the minor characters.
* ''Film/ShootEmUp'': Clive Owen naked having sex and shooting things.
* Steven Strait, a.k.a. Warren Peace in ''Film/SkyHigh'', as admitted by the director.
* ''Film/TerminatorSalvation''. Not only can Marcus not keep his shirt on, but [[spoiler: Ahnold shows up as the T-800 at the climax. ''Naked'']].
* Having Chris Hemsworth walk on-camera without his shirt in ''Film/{{Thor}}'' didn't accomplish anything except for one of the characters to note he's pretty ripped for a hobo.
** His shirtless scene in Thor: The Dark World is just as gratuitous. Even Chris Hemsworth asked why it was included.
*** Well, when you have someone that hot in your movie...
* It's difficult to find a movie in which Jason Statham appears and doesn't take his shirt off at some point. ''The Transporter'' includes three (count 'em, ''three''!) shirtless scenes.
* In ''The Wedding Date'', Dermont Mulroney plays Nick Mercer, a male escort who hired by Kat Ellis (Debra Messing) to pose as her boyfriend. He has no problem about taking a shower in front of her.
* Chris Evans basically spent much of ''What's Your Number?'' naked or at least in various states of undress.
* Was there really any need for Creator/PaulMcGann to spend half of ''Film/WithnailAndI'' nearly-naked? Of course there was. This trope. Hell, the man has his own real-life Estrogen Brigade. Seriously. [[http://www.pmeb.org/ That's the name of his fanclub]].
* ''Film/XMen'':
** Wolverine. There's a reason that he's often shirtless.
*** The bathing scene in ''Film/TheWolverine''.
*** He's the only reason Tao Okamoto initially agreed to play Mariko in ''Film/TheWolverine'' and Fan Bingbing can't stop gushing about him.
*** In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', he appears entirely naked when first waking up in the past.
** Colossus spends most of his screen time in ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' running around shirtless, and his uniform in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' lacks sleeves to show off his physique.
** Angel spends a good part of ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' shirtless.
** Noburo Mori from ''Film/TheWolverine'' is in nice shape and gets an underwear scene.
* A feature of the average barbarian fantasy film - ConanTheBarbarian, TheBeastmaster, Literature/{{Kull}}, and all their kin. The heroic beefcake is in even less armor than the heroic girlfriend [[ChainmailBikini cheesecake]].
* Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme, full stop. He must have a contract stipulation that states he must show his bare ass at least once in every movie he's in, and he spends a good amount of combined time shirtless.
* Film/{{Elysium}}: Matt Damon gets [[ShirtlessScene several opportunities]] to showcase the benefits of additional gym time. Not that anyone's complaining.
* Teddy from ''[[Film/{{Neighbors 2014}} Neighbors]]'', natch, when you're played by Zac Efron, you're automatically this. [[spoiler: It also helps him get a post-college career at Abercrombie & Fitch]], and there's a prolonged ShirtlessScene at the end that seems to say "Thanks for watching, ladies, and now: here's the reason you bought a ticket."
* Garrett Dillahunt (Hogan) in ''Film/TheScribbler'', InUniverse. Not only does he have many shirtless scenes, but as the only guy in an otherwise all-female psychiatric halfway house, he's more than happy to sexually service his fellow inmates.
* Quite a few of Creator/ThomasJane 's roles, but ''Film/ThePunisher2004'' in particular.
* Creator/HenryCavill in just about every role he's ever been in, but special mention goes to his StarMakingRole in ''Film/ManOfSteel''. He's a certified {{Hunk}} with at least one ShirtlessScene to show it off. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when Air Force Captain Carrie Ferris is completely DistractedByTheSexy when near him and ''admits'' it to her bemused commanding officer.
* There was also Creator/BruceLee, the supreme MartialArts film star with a sculpted adonis of a body that could wow any woman with his compact musclebound perfection.
* Some of Toshiro Mifune's earlier roles, such as in ''{{Rashomon}}'', for example, have him in skimpy clothing.
