More Charlie Hunnam shirtless pictures from Men’s Fitness

Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam, 30, is shirtless in the November issue of Men’s Fitness. We’ve already covered Hunnam’s hairy, buff cover appearance, but now that I have access to the full article and photos I felt the burning urge to revisit it. In the article, there are more shirtless pictures along with some details on Hunnam’s on-the-go bodyweight workout. He also shares a story about how he single-handedly wrestled a giant intruder at his house and threatened him with death by machete. Of course he never called the police and the tale sounds somewhat bogus to me, as if he’s trying to live up to his character’s reputation. He also tells a sad story about how the real life guy who inspired his Son’s character, Jax, was shot dead before he could ever watch the show. Here’s more from lovely Brit Charlie:


His exercise and diet routine
He strives to keep his workouts gritty, hardcore and raw. He works long hours – up to 15 hours a day – and must be creative to find time for his training. Sometimes he’ll swim a mile, other times he’ll squeeze in workouts at his house using body-weight moves alone. It helps that he keeps his diet clean, sticking to lean protein and natural foods. The secret to a long and happy life? “Drinking vegetable juice every day,” he says.

Lately, he’s caught the Bartendaz bug, adopting a program created by a group of guys in Harlem and Brooklyn who work out rigorously at playgrounds and in parks…

On the inspiration for his character
To prep for his role, Hunnam hung out with outlaw bikers in Northern California. “There was a kid I met in this club who was exactly who I was hired to play. He was the son of a man in the motorcycle club, he’d grown up in the club, every one of his birthday parties had been thrown in the clubhouse. I wear exactly the shoes he wore, the jeans he wore. He had a very powerful impact on me. He was an amazing guy.” And he was shot dead before Sons started production, hence the bullet necklace [Hunnam wears]. “I wear it for him – to remember the flavor he taught me.”

On how he caught a robber and sent him packing
A few weeks before sitting down with Men’s Fitness, he was sitting in his home office at 1 a.m. when he heard rustling in his house. [in LA]. Picking up his machete he keeps in his office (yes, he keeps a machete in his office), Hunnam walked down the hall and bumped into a burglar. “He was about 5’10″, 245 pounds – a beast,” Hunnam says, who stands 6’1″ and weighs 180 pounds. “I pinned him to the ground and said, ‘Dude, I’m not going to f*ck you up this time, but if you ever come near here again, literally, they’ll never find your body – I’ll cut you in so many pieces.’” Then without calling the cops, he released the intruder, who never came back.

[From Men's Fitness, print edition, November, 2010]

He’s lucky the robber didn’t have a gun, although this story sounds fake to me. It would be such an easy tale to make up in order to increase his street cred and it’s so cliche – he wrestled a big dude to the ground and scared him off with a machete! Where did he put the machete while he was wrestling him? Did he set it aside, only to pick it up again? It’s so bogus. As I’ve said in our earlier coverage on Hunnam, I don’t get the impression that he’s all that mature for 30. He doesn’t seem like a total dick or anything, but he’s no Alexander Skarsgard personality-wise. He’s sure nice to look at though.

There are even more jaw-dropping photos in Charlie’s spread. You can pick up Men’s Fitness on newsstands in the US and you can buy it digitally for your computer or iPad (and zoom in!) on

    THANK YOU, what a pleasant way to start the day.

  2. Sarah says:

    Um, don’t care if he’s immature, he’s yummy looking.

  3. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    @ Sarah, I agree, mature or not, I’d hit it and hit it and hit it…..

  4. Lynda says:

    meh…seen it all before.Wish they would pull up their pants.

  5. mln says:

    In the top picture he looks like Spencer Pratt creepy, but the cover is hot.

  6. Stephani says:

    Love him! Hate the long hair and beard on him though! Ever seen Green Street Hooligans? Charlie with short hair and clean shaven…OMG…

  7. sickofit says:

    yes i was thinking spenca pratt too..
    pleez get that beard of, it just looks dumb.

  8. devilgirl says:

    I do not find this guy hot in the least.

  9. Squirrel says:

    Thought it was Spencer Pratt too. Hmm, lesson to be learned – scraggly beard makes you look like a prat(t)!

    As for the robber chasing… he probably just switched on the light and the robber caught a good look at the scary hairy face. I’d run too.

  10. Kitten says:

    I HATE the flesh beard. I just started watching Sons Of Anarchy. It’s only “ok” so far, but I’m only on episode 4 so hopefully it gets better. Anyway, he is so incredibly hot on the show. I love the way he walks :)

  11. Jillian says:

    I also thought that was Spencer.

  12. Katie says:

    I love him. I do not love the fact that Dish Network and FX are in dispute right now so when I turned to Sons on Tuesday night, the entire fucking channel was gone. Don’t come between a girl and her Charlie Hunnam fix.

  13. sparkledog says:

    Love him, totally hot…shave the beard, please!

  14. clare says:

    He reminds me of Jesse James.

  15. pshhh says:

    first pic i thought it was spencer too…but spencer doesnt have that kind of body! or that face when you see the other pictures.

  16. Reggie says:

    Yea I thought this was a story about Spencer when I first glanced at the pic. Gross.

  17. Lisa S. says:

    He looks like a lot of the surfer boys that I grew up with, so nothing really special about him to me.

  18. Janeth says:

    I caught a glimpse of his dong in the first picture. Yummy!

  19. Leticia says:

    He really does look like Spencer Pratt in the first photo

  20. Leticia says:

    I don’t believe the ridiculous story about him scolding a huge burglar. If you encounter a burglar in your home, there is no lecturing, just a fight that ensues.

  21. Raven says:

    I started watching the show and just saw him in baggy clothing. I had no idea what was underneath until I saw that last photo spread. I think he’s adorable, but I was just wondering about how they clean those jean vests with the club patch on them. The spouse and girlfriend love their men but I doubt they’d love stinky guys.

  22. RHONYC says:




    thanks c.b., you’re a real pal. :-)

  23. RHONYC says:

    the machete.

    “I’m not going to f*ck you up this time, but if you ever come near here again, literally, they’ll never find your body – I’ll cut you in so many pieces.’”

    sh*t, that don’t sound fake to me at all. we are quite keen on dismemberment to intruders in my house. hell, he & my man could be twins.

    100% loco. :-)

  24. guesty says:

    thought that was spencer pratt in the header pic…not a good look @ all.

  25. Praise St. Angie! says:

    Katie, FYI, you can watch all the episodes on line.

    just google “Sons of Anarchy full episodes on line free” and you’ll find a few sites that have it.

    (FYI, FX puts them on line too, but they don’t put the previous episode up until the day after the current ep shows. so, this past week’s episode will be on FX’s site next Wed.)

  26. hstl1 says:

    @Praise St. Angel – thanks for the info! The Happy episode was so disappointing! Can’t we have him on screen for more than 3 minutes??

  27. I Choose Me says:

    Don’t mind the beard. Couldn’t care less about the abs but I am intrigued by what’s happening in those shorts. Nice bulge, (first pic) looks authentic. Don’t know enough about him to know if I’d hit but Choosy likes what she sees. :)

  28. RHONYC says:

    @ Leticia:

    of course you must have meant spencer brat’s hotter cousin, ’cause otherwise from the blondness they are in 2 opposite solar systems. :-)

  29. Kitten says:

    He definitely looks NOTHING like Pratt. Actually on the show he reminds me a lot of Heath Ledger. Sexysexysexy.

  30. Praise St. Angie! says:

    Kitten, I agree about Ledger.

    Hunnam was on a show called “Undeclared” (yet another gem that was pulled before it had a chance) and when I first watched it, I thought it WAS Heath Ledger in that role!

    and yeah, MORE HAPPY, DAMMIT!

  31. Kitten says:

    Hey Praise was Undeclared supposed to be like Freaks & Geeks but in college or something? Loved F&Gs.

  32. Conando says:

    Jax is being an asshole this season, but Charlie can still get it. He is foine!

  33. Praise St. Angie! says:

    Kitten, never saw Freaks & Geeks, but Undeclared was about a bunch of freshman (whose majors are almost always “undeclared”) making their way through their first year at college.

    it was quirky, funny, etc…like ALL of the good shows that Fox cancels. they prefer to broadcast to the (dumbed-down) masses.

  34. Alibee says:

    Oh bless him, haven’t seen him in years in the UK – check him out in ‘Queer as folk’, ace series & my…. hasn’t he grown!!

  35. Susette says:

    Every time I read an interview with him, he seems kind of doltish to me.

    Therefore, I will no longer read interviews with him. I’ll just stare at the pretty pictures.

  36. Kate says:

    Don’t care if the story is fake or real. Those abs… that accent…

    I would wreck that man.

  37. magi c. says:

    the beard and hair is for his role on SOA.. lol..

    he has a demeanor about his that is sooo addicting.. these pics are HOT.. thanks for posting!

  38. FX fan says:

    Are you guys for real??? Spencer Pratt??? Geez, put your glasses on. Must not be too many SOA fans here. As for the beard, I am not into facial hair but without it, Hunnam is too “pretty-boy” for me.
    He is delish, though.

  39. Megan says:

    This is THE most bad a$s show on TV! Kurt Sutter and the cast do an incredible job. If I had Dish network, I would be raising some hel| right about now. Charlie Hunnam is an amazing actor and absolutely delicious…and I’ve watched every episode of Queer as Folk (UK), so that’s saying a lot. If you’ve seen it, you know what I mean. It takes a guy that is COMPLETELY secure with his sexuality to do some stuff like that. So happy SOA was renewed for a 4th season. It’s much deserved and I’m sure it will get picked up for the next 3!
    Oh…and the only thing Charlie has in common w/ Pratt is the flesh colored beard, but Charlie still rocks the sh!t out of it and looks sexy as ever. Check out some of his other work: Queer as Folk (UK), Green Street Hooligans, Nicholas Nickleby, Undeclared, and Cold Mountain.

  40. Micki Beasley says:

    I totally agree with kitten. He does resemble Heath Ledger in the photo. Spencer Pratt…..eeewwwwwwww! What a body!

  41. Nora says:

    You always seem to post stuff about him, loving on his looks but attacking him at the same time. What’s up with that? You probably don’t watch the show and never watch any of his interviews. He’s not just a hot actor, he’s a smart script writer, too. I know he’s more mature than *you*.

    I guess I’d better just look at the pics you post and not read your bitter words.

  42. Banshee74 says:

    He is so ridiculously hot.

  43. Danielle says:

    Some of you peeps are utterly ridculous, the show is awesome and i give kuddo’s to Kurt Sutter for bringing us this prize winning show. People who don’t find this an amazing show apparently can’t handle the realities in life that this show brings expecially in the biker world, put down the romance novels and teenage bull crap other directors are writing that’s making you believe that’s life, to the real viewers it’s what matters, so f**k your opinionated bulls**t answers. Personally Charlie Hunnam is the hottest male actor out there and my thought are opposite of most of yours, who cares about facial hair i’ll take him any which way i can, he’s scrumdidaliumpcious!!!

  44. SJT says:

    Are you kidding me right now? Not mature, a dolt, stupid, etc – this guy is NOT just a pretty face. He’s also more cultured than you think, as well as being Brit. Don’t judge a book by the cover. Just cause he looks like a pretty boy – that’s not all he is. He’s pretty damn intelligent and reads, knows history, researches, writes, and knows the ins and outs of the business. He just sold an historical script to Brad Pitt’s company and they are making a huge film out of it. This man is waaay more than a pretty face.

  45. luvin charlie says:

    I’ve been wanting to devour this man since green street hooligans. yum!

  46. raina says:

    Charlie Hunnam is positively my ideal man! That face and body are so enticing. Sons is my favorite show, and the fact that I get to see Jax every episode is just an added bonus. His scruffy appearance only epitomizes to me what a REAL man should look like. All these girls in love with these guys with fake tans and manicures baffles me. I, for one, am completely satisfied with Charlie, dirty jeans, greasy hair, scraggly beard, and all, just the way he is!

  47. All of you who think he looks like Spencer Pratt, GET YOUR EYES CHECKED!!!
    Also the idiot that wrote this article saying she doesn’t think Charlie is a mature 30 yr old, is obviously not a good judge of character. Charlie was at the Easy Riders Bike Show, and was gracious and kind to every fan.

  48. Kathy says:

    Give me a break Spencer Pratt only wishes he looks that good…YUMMY!!!

  49. Kaiden says:

    @all u haters out there:

    1. most girls are all the same, thinking guys need to conform to their personal standards. he needs to shave bla bla bla. as long as theyre not cheating or beating on you and show you respect, let em be who they wanna be!

    2. and 99 percent of girls think EVERYTHING is creepy, so stfu about that to. girls who say that about everything are just insecure and probably ugly cus they want everyone to know when they think theyre being checked out by some “creepy” guy.

    3. charlie doesnt give a crap what u think, hes a badass!!

    4. go ahead and hate these comments to, i got my own hottie and anything harmless he does (eg grow out a little facial scruff) i just let go and dont need to make a big deal out of, cus i respect his independance.

    5. go packers…

  50. kim says:

    Charlie Hunnam is GORGIOUS!…very down to earth guy too. He’s not a ‘surfer dude’ from Cali, he’s from London. If you guys think he’s cute now, rent the show ‘UNDECLARED’ when him and a few others were young and not very famous yet. He was a young hottie in that show. And NO WAY does he look like that cruddy Spencer Pratt!…whoever said that needs their eyes checked and their mouth washed out with soap!…just kidding…but go Charlie!

  51. Koowie says:

    Doesn’t he look like Spencer Pratt? But better looking..

  52. Karina says:

    Lo amo, con barba o sin baraba… esta guapisimo!!!!! en green street hooligans, x dios es el mas sexi q he conocido!!!!!!

  53. Justine says:

    He is 10x hotter than Spencer Pratt! And the facial hair is GORGEOUS!! I actually don’t understand how people don’t like it?!

    Pretty boys are sooo… meh.
    Id like a rough MAN over a pretty boy any day!

  54. Elina says:

    His name, the Swedish actor, is Alexander Skarsgård, not Alexander Skarsgard. ;)

  55. Cherie says:

    Does anyone recognize him from that Katie Holmes movie Abandon with Benjamin Bratt? He was cute then… now!

  56. Mocha says:

    I would love to take a ride on this fine specimen. He is so damn hot!
