John Stamos is 51 and proud of it. In honor of his latest birthday, the former “Full House” star has posted a revealing photo on Instagram, touting his toned abs. On Monday, People shared the pic, which was posted Aug. 24 on the actor's social media account.
"51 no filters F' it," Stamos captioned the pic, which had him shirtless while standing in a bathroom. The actor turned 51 years old on Aug. 19.
As for his fit, 51-year-old body, last year Stamos told Details magazine that he used to go to the gym a lot, but that he recently took on Pilates. “I think the cumulative of starting young, when I was 18 or 19, and staying fit on a consistent basis, has helped,” he said. “But I don't run around with my shirt off too much.”
Celebrity selfies are nothing new, but Stamos’s recent channels a notorious pic posted by Fox News alum Geraldo Rivera last year. Last July, Rivera toasted his 70th birthday by posting a semi-nude picture of himself on Twitter with the caption: "70 is the new 50. Erica and family are going to be so pissed...but at my age..."
The Fox News regular, who wore nothing but a barely-there towel in the pic, later took the photo down. Rivera later explained that he posted the shot after downing a few shots of tequila, and admitted he was proud of how he looked in the photo, which he had taken earlier that morning. The Hollywood Reporter later revealed that Fox News demanded that the network alum remove the sexy selfie.
Everyone from Demi Moore to Justin Bieber have been known for their social media self portraits, but no one trumps Kim Kardashian. Earlier this month, E! News revealed that the reality star will publish an entire book of selfies tiled ‘Selfish.” The 352-page hardcover book, which was inspired by Kardashian’s racy Valentine Day pics for hubby Kanye West, will be published in April 2015.
