In 2009's The Proposal, Ryan's character strips down before getting in the shower. No wonder he's got so much chemistry with costar Sandra Bullock.
Before the actor received his skintight superhero suit in The Green Lantern, audiences got an up close view of Ryan nearly in the buff.
Even in floaties, the guy is seductive. But when Entertainment Weekly asked him if he was comfortable being a sex symbol, Ryan said: "There are moments when you can use that to your advantage. But it's really embarrassing. I think I fear more than anything just sounding like a complete a-hole when I have to answer that question."
The only thing we actually remember from 2002's Buying the Cow is this hilarious (and sexy!) scene.
In 2010, Ryan was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. Wonder why?
Even from the rear view, the 38-year-old flaunts some serious muscle.
We don't normally go for horror flicks like The Amityville Horror, but with so many shirtless Reynolds scenes we're fully on board.
In The Amityville Horror, we wondered how could someone who's possessed by a demon and trying to kill his family still be so hot?
Blade: Trinity shows us a different side of Ryan—the shirtless muscular bad ass side. Oh, wait. Maybe we've seen that before...
There's nothing much better than Ryan sans t-shirt!
The actor spilled to Men's Health about how he gained 20 pounds of muscle and lost one-third of his body fat for his role in Blade: Trinity, before showing off the results of his hard work.
We'd have a water pistol fight with R.R. (and those guns) any day.
As a college student for seven years in National Lampoon's Van Wilder, Ryan's character didn't have a care in the world. Or a shirt, apparently.
