Stephen Amell defends his shirtless photo: ‘I’m in tremendous shape’ and strong

Stephen Amell is not known for being a hero in his real life. Stephen is more like his playboy character before the boat accident in Arrow. Back in June, Stephen was kicked off a flight after he imbibed too much and started a fight with his wife. He apologized for it, but it sounded more like he was embarrassed for being an as*hole in public, not for treating his wife like that. Of course Stephen doesn’t do well with criticism. Choosing instead to be passive aggressive and a tad bit petty. Such is the case of a picture that Stephen posted recently without a shirt in some pink shorts. Stephen, who claims to be in great shape, was raked over the coals in the comments from a few trolls stating that he was out of shape. Stephen rebutted the trolling on his Facebook page (instead of on Instagram where the comments were made) with a snarky, “I’ll take your girl and your man in these pink shorts with this body,” (I’m paraphrasing). Below are a few more highlights via Just Jared:

“Happy Saturday. Pop on some pink shorts and read Gary’s book. But only if you want to be smarter,” he captioned the original photo. In the picture, he’s holding a copy of Gary Janetti‘s book “Do You Mind If I Cancel?”

Even though Stephen is looking great in the photo, some trolls left comments saying that he’s out of shape right now.

Stephen took to his Facebook fan page and left a message for his haters. First, check out the Instagram pic below.

Stephen revealed his body stats while responding to the comments.

“Public service announcement: I’m 6’1 inches tall and 208 lbs. I’m in tremendous shape and I’m strong as shit. I’m a 24 hour juice cleanse away from blowing the season 1 poster for Arrow out of the water. We did the photography for that poster a little over 9 years ago. Next time I post a photo in my hot pink skivvies, I’ll try and remember to flex!” Stephen said in the Facebook post.

He concluded, “And if that isn’t good enough, send me your address. I will show up to steal your boyfriend or your girlfriend.”

The fact that Stephen was fangirling over Gary Janetti’s book and calling him smart in this post tells me all I need to know about Stephen. Gary is a grade A – as*hole too. I don’t understand why Stephen got so upset about the trolling. Folks commenting on his body are more than likely out of shape too and didn’t need a response from him. This tells me that Stephen is overly sensitive and that makes me feel for his wife. I also don’t understand why Stephen decided to respond to the trolling on a different platform. And why did Stephen feel a need to give us his body stats? Like bruh, maybe you are a little soft in some areas, we all are after eighteen months of COVID ruining our routines. With that being said, Stephen looks fine. You can tell he works out and eats pretty healthy. As for the trolls, I choose to ignore them 95% of the time unless of course I have the time and energy to make them cry. I suggest Stephen does the same. As for him taking folks girlfriends and boyfriends in his pink skivvies, well, I guess (shrugs). Hopefully, Stephen will get his anger in check because it really isn’t a good look.

    I think the exchange was hilarious and he owned his s—t on the inside of you podcast…but yeah, enjoying Gary Janette is terrible.

  2. jferber says:

    Who is Gary Janetti? The only part of his response I liked was about stealing your girlfriend or boyfriend in his pink skivvies. That was hilarious. His wife looks long-suffering. Dude is really into himself.

  3. Steph says:

    Small petty men make me laugh.

  4. Bobbie says:

    Narcissism, party of one.

  5. TheOriginalMia says:

    He & Cassandra are grade A assholes. She’s a Texas MAGA. He drinks too much. They are miserable in that marriage but refuse to get help or divorce.

    • Gemgirlaaa says:

      Nice wine fridge…in the living room? Cough. Ok drinky.

    • Xoxo says:

      Stephen is from here in Toronto, he is a prep school jerk. He went to St. Andrews boarding/prep school, they tend to churn out some entitled and privileged a-holes.

    • Green Desert says:

      Oh she’s MAGA? F*ck them, seriously. I was going to say “his poor wife” but I take it back.

      I’ve never watched his stuff but I’ve read enough of his comments on things over the years to know he sucks. And his response is so Trumpian – “I’m in tremendous shape and I’m strong as shit.” Douche.

  6. girl_ninja says:

    He’s such a miserable cuss with entitlement and insecurity issues.

  7. Merricat says:

    Lol. Gross.

  8. Misbehavin says:

    This whole post is hilarious. I don’t know who this guy is or anything about his history (other than the flight story-if I don’t read about it here, it didn’t happen), but I love when celebs get petty.
    Also, I think he looks great. I hate the overly sculpted superhero bodies out there now. Vanity muscles don’t always equal strength and the ability to develop abs is genetic (I’ve never seen his show so I don’t know if he’s known for taking his shirt off to flaunt his 6 pack or whatever).
    Anyway, more petty Kennys please.

  9. Stacy Dresden says:

    I think he looks really good but if they are MAGA, he may as well be Donny Jr as far as my lady parts are concerned

  10. Mimi says:

    I liked arrow but now I find him annoying peace

  11. lisa taylor says:

    Yeah he’s a db.

    Oya: I love your stuff. Little tip –A “tad” was originally a small boy, but this word evolved into the expression “a tad” meaning “very small” or “very slightly”: “The movie was a tad long for my taste.” Some people combine this with the equivalent expression “a bit” and say “a tad bit.” This is redundant. Just say “a bit” or “a tad.”

  12. Chantal says:

    I loved Arrow and thought he was great in it. I guess world class douche-ness is the new standard today. He still looks good but how disappointing.

  13. Keri says:

    Ok, in defense of the trolls. Are they really though? He’s so thirsty and call me petty but the first thing I noticed were his slight love handles and the fact that he doesn’t exactly have a six pack. Nothing wrong with that but he does walk around like he’s God’s gift. There’s a difference between being confident and being a totally vain narcissist. His over the top, defensive response (I’m gonna steal your boyfriend or girlfriend! What? Is he in grade school?) and admiration for racist Gary Janetti tell me all I need to know. The guy is full of himself and his past and recent behavior just proves it. The “trolling” he got was petty but well-deserved.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I don’t know much about him except the headlines about the plane incident, but this reeks of douche-bro vibes. Maybe I’m totally wrong, but that’s the impression I get.
    However, there’s nothing wrong with how he looks, he does look fit – I think people have gotten too used to seeing superheros and such all cut and ridiculously muscly, when in reality they’re dehydrating themselves and frantically doing sit ups before those photos shoots, and are probably helped along with photoshop (and steroids).

  15. jferber says:

    I wonder what he’d do if he did “steal your boyfriend” in his itty-bitty hot pink skivvies. Interesting question, huh?

  16. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I enjoy his broody, angular foulness on Arrow, but I see it isn’t acting. He’s a colossal douche with no superpowers to lighten the load.

    hahaha Dude what?!
