Christopher Meloni loves to stir up chaos on main. The actor and Internet’s Zaddy responded to a fan’s request for a selfie on Twitter yesterday in the least predictable way, by quote-tweeting with an impromptu pic of his bare muscular legs taken from above. He knew exactly what he was doing: almost immediately after he posted the photo, another fan replied, asking: “Can you do higher up please, for science.”
Meloni gamely obliged, sharing another hastily taken photo of his shirtless chest and jacked bicep. And the replies are… A Lot, to say the least.
Meloni has been a bona fide thirst object ever since the late ’90s, when he played a violent (and frequently nude) prisoner in the HBO drama Oz, and has sustained that status throughout his tenure on various iterations of the Law & Order franchise. More recently, he broke Twitter with photos from his Men’s Health cover shoot, which brought the fiercely loyal and deeply, commitedly horny Meloni hive out of the woodwork.
He has managed to keep a pretty healthy sense of humor about the whole thing, specifically the way so many people seem to feel about his famous butt. “I catch flies with my ass cheeks, like a Venus flytrap,” he joked in his Men’s Health cover story. “I’m clever with my ass cheeks!”
When it comes to how he achieves those strong-looking legs and glutes, Meloni is a massive advocate of weighted squats. “They’ve paid dividends as far as me being reconnected to my physicalness and the stuff I have to do for the show,” he says.
