Jon Bon Jovi, 50, shirtless on the beach: would you hit it?

It was just a year ago that we were treated to a series of shirtless photos of Jon Bon Jovi, then 49, hanging out on the beach with his family. Back then he looked pretty damn good, but fast forward a year and he looks even fitter at 50! I really like this guy, who is by all accounts that I’ve heard, a devoted family man and a very nice guy. He’s been married for 23 years to his high school sweetheart, Dorthea Hurley, and they have four children together. He also has his own charity foundation, which has recently focused on Hurricane Sandy relief following the devastating effects of Sandy in his native New Jersey. So long story short, Bon Jovi is awesome.

Bon Jovi’s life isn’t entirely charmed, though. He had a devastating setback when his 19 year-old daughter, Stephanie Rose, overdosed on heroin this November while away at college. In response, he simply said that he never saw it coming and hopes they caught it in time, but that there’s only so much you can do. He said, in part, “I’m shocked as much as the next parent with this situation and had no idea. But then you surround them with best help and love and move on, and that’s where we’re at with it… Hopefully, we caught it when we did and that’s the end of it. But who knew? I’ve got three more to come.”

Bon Jovi in shown in St. Barts with his wife and two youngest children, Romeo, 8, and Jacob, 10. Last year his daughter Stephanie and their now 17 year-old son, Jesse, were in St. Barts too for the family holiday vacation. Maybe all the kids were there and those two stayed at the hotel this day instead of heading to the beach.I just hope that Stephanie is doing well and that she has family around her. Hopefully she’s back on the right track again. It sounds like she has plenty of love and support from her family.

As the Daily Mail notes, Bon Jovi is about to embark on a world tour next month that will last until July. Tour dates are here!

Don’t you wonder what they’re looking at here?

    Meh. Never really felt the JBJ thing. His teeth freak me out. Don’t ask me why.

  2. pretty says:

    he’s HOT.
    This post reminds me of the post of Jude Law a few days ago.
    Compare the photos. jon bon jovi is hotter!! and looks younger.

  3. MrsPatton says:

    I never thought he was hot until he cut that ugly 80′s glam rock hair. After that, WOW, He is one handsome man.

  4. annabelle says:

    Surely. I like (seemingly) devoted men. It’s part of my Timothy Olyphant love.

  5. Bubbling says:

    Sure, for the sake of old days. But, fake azz teeth y u so white?!

  6. sarah says:

    I have been in love with him since I was 5!! So YES YES YES, I would hit it till he couldn’t walk anymore!

  7. spinner says:

    He’s a good looking guy & he is fit. As he is a devoted family man who has never felt the need to be edgy — I like him even more. I would do naughty things to him.

  8. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    I’ve always liked him and wished him and his family well. I also have enjoyed his occasional acting forays, including a hot guynCarrie meets in her therapists office on SATC. After they have wild sex, she asks him why he is seeing the shrink.

    JBJ: “Afterr I sleep with a woman I completely lose interest. How bout you?”

    Carrie: ” I pick the wrong men”

  9. shewolf says:

    What? He’s been married to his high school sweetheart for 23 years? That melts my heart of ice but I still wouldnt have sex with him.

  10. guilty pleasures says:

    Although I hate the ‘would you hit it’ question, he is freakin adorable!! He has the exact same body type as my hubby, so I guess it’s a no brainer that I find him attractive, and he gets a Hollywood pass on the teeth, beats the heck out of a snaggle tooth grin!
    Also, he is a rock star in the philanthropic sense, doesn’t he run/own a cafe-restaurant where you pay what you can, or work for your meal? I remember reading about it somewhere and having my heart grow two full sizes!

  11. DeltaJuliet says:

    He looks great, undeniably, and yet I still don’t get hot for him.

  12. Shannon says:

    Yes I’d hit it. Gladly. He’s always been hot and hes got a great ass.

  13. bettyrose says:

    Yes please! He wasn’t even my type back in the day, but I’ve been appreciating for years how nicely he’s aged. It was really apparent at the recent benefit concert when he shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen (who was, at one time, WAAAY hotter than JBJ, but no longer).

  14. Stubbylove says:

    Hell to the Yes I’d hit that. Can’t wait to see them in Chicago in July!

  15. Annie2 says:

    Yes- while listening to Dead or Alive;)

  16. j.eyre says:

    He looks great but he is not tall enough for the Hit List.

    His wife looks great too. Good for them.

  17. Jen34 says:

    I would hit it.

    But he wasn’t always such a great family man. After he and Dorothea eloped, he tried to get the marriage annulled. It was bad for his career to be married. Plus, he used to cheat on her. I wish I could provide links, but IIRC, he has admitted to it. This was all in the past, but still.

  18. Peanut says:

    He’s performing in Calgary on my birthday this year, wooohooooo!!! And yes, I’d hit it. :)

  19. redd says:

    nope, not now, not in the 70s, 80s or 90s. He just don’t do it for me.

  20. Adriana says:

    Would you hit it? Who on earth is above Bon Jovi?

  21. susie cue says:

    put me down for YES. Also, since no one’s said it yet: his wife is also keepin’ it tight.

  22. Jayna says:

    He’s never done it for me too much. I don’t like pretty boys, but he has always had great arms and a great ass. But I did fall in love with him during this performance of Bed of Roses with him on piano instead of guitar, more stripped down. Gorgeous song about I guess cheating on his wife on the road.

    Bed of Roses –

    Richie was always my guy and I loved his voice more than Jon’s as a rocker voice and great guitarist, though it’s deteriorated as he’s gotten older, and now he wears his hair like my grandmother. LOL So not hot for him anymore, but loved his solo album. A big shoutout for his talent, though.

    Richie – I love this song. I get chills listening to it – Father Time

  23. Jayna says:

    And can I just say I didn’t realize that video above of Father Time had a bunch of snapsots of Heather Locklear. The one photo of her coming out of the ocean with a shot next to it of her real face shows what fillers does to these women. What is wrong with all these women and fillers? Maybe a little bit when you’re much older is okay, but this is what you look like when trying to cry or smile with big fat cheeks and too takes away the bones structureof your face. LOL

  24. Talita says:

    TOTALLY!! I love you, Jon!

  25. carol says:

    he whitens his teeth, but needs to Build Upper Body Muscle. looking lame

  26. Laura says:

    I remember on election day…CNN reported that Obama was in Chicago playing basketball (cocky bastard) and Romney was still campaigning (desperate bastard). I later read on a smaller news site as an aside that Jon Bon Jovi was in Jersey working to feed people at a soup kitchen, and I wished we could elect him (I know I could have written in, but come on).
