Oh by the Way, Here's What Dan Stevens Looks Like Shirtless

Dan Stevens is one sexy beast, and we're not just saying that because he's literally playing the beast in Beauty and the Beast. The British actor needs no CGI to be drop-dead gorgeous, and though it doesn't happen a lot, we particularly appreciate the times he's gone shirtless. Dan has stripped down a number of times for movies and TV, most notably in 2014's thriller The Guest, and the results, well, let's just say they'd make any Downton Abbey fan clutch her pearls. Please enjoy this brief but glorious gallery of Dan Stevens with his shirt off.

Dan bulked up and stripped down for his role in the thriller The Guest, a film in which the context of guest is far more sinister than in Beauty and the Beast.

To think, all this is covered in CGI in Beauty and the Beast.

Let us not forget that time Dan was a scamp in Vamps opposite Krysten Ritter.

If Beauty and the Beast makes you wish that shirtless Beast was shirtless Dan Stevens, look to 2017 indie film The Ticket, which comes out April 7.
