The 36-year-old actor tells Men’s Health that when his acting career is over, he might go back to being the fat guy. To that, can we all collectively pray that never happens. While there’s no question that Chris Pratt looks great whatever size he is, let’s be honest. The Jurassic World star looks undeniably hotter when toned, buffed and ripped with muscles.

With his past history of going from flab to fab a couple times, Pratt is the perfect choice to cover the publication’s Transformation Issue. He’s certainly a source of inspiration for those hoping to sculpt their body like his.

Read his thoughts about his weight below. Also check out some playful pics snapped by Emily Shur. My favorite is the one where he faces off against a sand dinosaur.

Currently, Aydian Dowling is the frontrunner in Men’s Health’s “Ultimate Guy” contest. With only a month left of voting left, the Oregon trans activist stands a good chance of winning, given that he’s amassed almost five times as many votes as his closest competitor. Dancing With The Stars Season 20 contestant Noah Galloway won last year’s contest.

“I think if there’s one thing you want in life it’s to do your own thing, to live your authentic self,” Aydian tells Ellen DeGeneres. “Being on that cover will question the new average. Like, what is average? I think it’ll break that barrier.”

Dowling also talks about coming out as a lesbian before coming to grips with his gender identity and undergoing the transition process. Watch his interview below to learn more about Aydian’s journey. You’ll also get a peek at his wedding day with his adorable wife.

It voting closed today for the Men’s Health Ultimate Guy Search, the winner hands down would be Aydian Dowling. The Oregon trans activist leads the pack by a huge margin. Hopefully, Dowling can maintain the lead until June 21 when voting closes. I’d love to see the fitness trainer become the first transgender cover boy in the publication’s history on the November 2015 issue.

“I maintain a healthy lifestyle by making sure my life is in a balance. Just like you eat foods in a balance I do my absolute best to keep my mental mind in connection to my body so they can grow healthy together. The battle that can come with the mirror can be completely dark and engulfing. As a Transgender Male, having a healthy body and mind is my ultimate goal to find peace within my soul. Although I may always have some kind of battle with my body, I continue to work everyday for a happy peace within. ” Aydian tells Men’s Health

Just in case you were wondering, Noah Galloway won last year’s contest. The insanely hot double amputee is currently competing on this season of Dancing With The Stars. It’s incredible how he’s progressing on the show. Truly amazing.

Dowling came into prominence when he recreated Adam Levine’s nearly naked Cosmopolitan cover. Remember the one where Levine showed it all off with only a woman’s hands covering his naughty bits. Check out more pics below.

How do you celebrate turning 21-years-old? Showing off your body transformation for a national fitness magazine of course. Justin Beiber shows Men’s Health readers he’s no longer that scrawny teenage pop singer anymore.

In the cover story titled “The Reinvention of Justin Bieber,” the “Boyfriend” singer reflects on the public growing pains he’s experienced the past few years that have tarnished his image. It’s good to see him addressing his past conduct and mistakes.

“I had to grow up so quick. And it was almost like I grew up for the public but I didn’t necessarily grow up. There were things I had to do, as far as the way I had to make relationships, and conversation, but as far as actually growing up, there were a lot of things I missed out on.” – Bieber on growing up in the public eye

Along with getting introspective, the Biebs shares his workout routine with the publication’s readers. He also reveals his bromance crush on Ben Affleck. Who knew?

I have to say his team is doing an outstanding job trying to rehab his image. From his upcoming Comedy Central Roast to his mea culpa on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Justin is definitely on the right path to redemption. Check out more pics snapped by Peter Hapak below, along with more quotes.

Not that he was in bad shape before (because he wasn’t), but Usher amped up his workouts for a movie role. If you’re going to play the legendary Sugar Ray Leonard, you definitely have to be in tip top shape. The 34-year-old plays the iconic boxer in the upcoming film, Hands of Stone.

The Season 4 Voice coach opens up about the challenge of playing Leonard, workout mishaps and more for Men’s Health for their November 2013 issue. More importantly, the “Yeah!” singer shows the product of all his hard sweaty work at the gym. Check it out below.

On Playing Sugar Ray Leonard

“My commitment to this character demands that I not only physically get ready, but also become him. The hair, the personality, the manner he conducts himself in—all that. He’s an incredible man.”

Well, isn’t Joe Manganiello one generous fellow. Just last month he showed off his Greek god-like body to Men’s Health UK. He’s once again shirtless but this time it’s for the US version. The 36-year-old covers the publication’s June/July 2013 issue and heads to the beach for the inside editorial.

Clearly, the magazine has a hard-on for Manganiello. Not only is he their cover boy, but he recently ranked as No. 1 pick on their Best Summer Bodies list. I don’t blame them. He’s all that and then some. Side note: Did you catch his hot sex scene on the True Blood season premiere this past Sunday? His butt left me absolutely speechless.

On What He Thinks An Alpha Dog Should Look Like

“I’m playing a werewolf. I want to look sinewy. I want to look like an animal when the shirt comes off, but I want it to be a bit misleading when I have the shirt on.”

True Blood is around the corner and you know what that means. Time for HBO to parade Joe Manganiello shirtless to entice viewers to tune in for the premiere. Truthfully, I don’t know what I’m more excited for, the actual show or Manganiello whoring himself out to various magazines.

The 36-year-old actor graces the cover of Men’s Health June 2013 issue. Photographer Patrik Giardino snaps him as he rock climbs. I’m not sure what’s more chiseled, the rock formations he’s scaling or his ripped body. Perhaps the reason his muscles pop so much in the editorial is due to advice given by his idol Arnold Schwarzenegger.

On Advice Given By Arnold Schwarzenegger

“We had a photoshoot for the movie [Ten] poster. I was wearing a sleeveless top, crossing my arms and flexing,” he recalls. “Arnold came in and said, ‘I see you’re flexing your biceps. Don’t do that. Keep it loose and [with crossed arms] put the other hand back to push [the muscle forward]—you’ll get an extra three inches.’”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Covers Men’s Health

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Just because I don’t watch Game of Thrones doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the hotness that is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who plays Jaime Lannister on the HBO series. Truth be told, this sexy Danish actor has been on my radar since I first set my eyes on him in Wimbledon starring Kristen Dunst and Paul Bettany. That scene in the steam room with Bettany and Coster-Waldau wearing just towels and dripping in sweat was kinda hot. Love, set and match indeed.

The 42-year-old actor appears on the May 2013 cover of Men’s Health. In addition to posing for photographer Nino Munoz for a series of photos, Nikolaj goes “medieval on your abs.” I can think of a couple of other body parts where he can get all medieval ;) For the accompanying interview, he discuss his acting process, favorite movie and losing Vertical Limit to Chris O’Donnell because he blew his audition big time. Check out a few quotes and photos from the publication below.
