Sun's out, guns out!
Paul Rudd showed off his fit physique while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on Friday. The 45-year-old actor played football in a pair of red-and-blue swim trunks with friends on the beach, revealing his surprisingly ripped body.
Who knew that buff frame was hiding under all that wit?
The comedic actor has been busy training ahead of his role as Scott Lang in Marvel's upcoming superhero flick,"Ant-Man."
Rudd isn't your typical gym rat, and has been vocal about how his work keeps him in shape when necessary.
"When I'm not working, I won't shave or cut my hair or exercise," Rudd told Men's Health in 2007. "I turn into [bearded baseball pitcher] Brian Wilson, the off years. I grow my fingernails out like that guy in the Guinness Book of World Records."
In January, the "This is 40" actor said he was gearing up to prep for "Ant-Man."

Not every celebrity/brand relationship has to end in a $6 million dollar lawsuit a la Katherine Heigl and Duane Reade. (In case you missed it last week, the former "Grey's Anatomy" star is suing the drugstore chainover a tweet.)
In fact, many corporations are pretty smart in how they approach stars on social networking sites. The latest awesome example? "Scandal" actor Scott Foley and United Airlines.
@scottkfoley We want to be sure we protected the identity of B613 command. Enjoy your stay. ^FM
Gladiators are going crazy over the exchange, which references Foley's character on his hit ABC show. The actor himself also appreciated the witty response, retweeting United and calling it "awesome."
Here are a few other brands that have gotten it right:
Pharrell and Arby's

Looking good, Jessica Simpson!
Simpson, 33, stunned on Sunday while attending the John Varvatos Stuart House Benefit in Los Angeles. The Weight Watchers spokeswoman showed off her toned arms and fit frame in a curve-hugging, bright yellow dress. This was the fashion mogul's first red carpet appearance since November.
"So HAPPY to support @johnvarvatos for the #StuartHouse," she captioned the above photo on Instagram.
Inside the soiree, the mother of two mingled with guests like Amy Adams, Rachel Zoe, Gene Simmons, Willie Nelson. However, Simpson stayed close to Johnson and two friends.
"POWER COUPLES!!!!" she shared along with the below photo.
Simpson has reportedly lost around 60 pounds since giving birth to Ace Knute in June. The singer has proudly flaunted her toned figure in various Instagram shots, and even slipped back into her Daisy Dukes last month.

Who is Khloé Kardashian's new party partner French Montana?
The reality star and rapper have been attached at the hip for over two weeks now ever since Kardashian, 29, first popped up on Montana's Instagram on March 26.
Last weekend, Kardashian helped Montana, 29, house hunt around L.A. after hitting up Sean "Diddy" Combs's son's sweet 16 bash together. The duo — along with Scott Disick — also went clubbing at Hooray Henry's on Wednesday night in West Hollywood. Although they made separate exits, photographers snapped them leaving the hot spot together.
And on Thursday, French and Khloé grabbed dinner with her sister, Kourtney, and Scott at trendy Italian eatery Cecconi's in WeHo.
So does Kardashian have a new man in her life?
Though reps aren't commenting, here are a few things to know about her rumored beau:
1. His real name is Karim Kharbouch: He was born in Morocco and immigrated to New York City at age 13, settling in the Bronx. According to his bio, he considers himself a "Bronx representing rapper." So, where did the stage name French Montana come from?

It pays to be the top-earning actress on television!
Sofia Vergara, 41, recently purchased a gorgeous Italian Villa in Beverly Hills for $10.6 million. The 11,400-square-foot property boasts 7 bedrooms and 11 baths, so the "Modern Family" star will have plenty of room when family comes to visit.
According to the listing, the gated home was built "using the most exquisite materials imported from Argentina." On the main level sits a guest suite and studio, a chef's kitchen with top-quality appliances, and a big family room.
Upstairs is where the Colombian beauty and fiancé Nick Loeb will reside. The master suite has a fireplace and separate his-and-hers baths and closets. A few doors down are three large guest bedrooms.
Vergara's new pad is also perfect for entertaining.
While the outdoor terrace, pool, and spa look lovely, it's not even the best feature of the home.
On the third level there is a 3,000-bottle wine cellar and wine-tasting room!

Peaches Geldof's cause of death still remains a mystery. According to local police, Wednesday's autopsy results turned up inconclusive. Toxicology reports are still pending, which authorities say could take several weeks, according to the AP.
On Monday afternoon, Geldof was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast of London. Police were called to the residence following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman. She was 25.
According to Kent authorities, an investigation is ongoing, and Geldof's death is being treated "as non-suspicious but unexplained."
Peaches — the daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates — was married to Thomas Cohen, with whom she had two sons, 1-year-old Astala and Phaedra, who will turn 1 later this month.
"My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra, and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day," Cohen said in a statement." We shall love her forever."
Nothing says fresh faces like fresh friendships.
Cover girls Lupita Nyong'o, Kate Mara, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, and Emilia Clarke were the five stars honored at Marie Claire's Fresh Faces Party at the Soho House in West Hollywood on Tuesday. Lupita, Kate, and Elle hung out inside the bash (Olsen and Clarke were not able to attend due to filming commitments), but since it was the eve of her 16th birthday, it was Fanning who truly held court.
"It's sweet 16, so it's a big deal," the "Maleficent" star smiled, while talking to reporters on the red carpet. "I went back to school on Monday, so I'll be in school tomorrow — which is kind of exciting too, because your friends will bring you cupcakes."
Elle also celebrated the big 1-6 earlier this year, just so sister Dakota could be in attendance.
While family and friends wait for an answer as to what caused Peaches Geldof's "unexplained and sudden" death — an autopsy is expected to take place on Wednesday — a touching new blog post has surfaced from the British socialite.
The mother of two had recently started her gig as a columnist for Mother & Baby, and as a tribute, the publication has published her last article in which Geldof proclaimed she was "happier than ever."
"Being a mum is the best thing in my life," Geldof wrote.
The model and TV presenter went on to detail how she was ready to give up clubs for cribs.
"With fun-loving friends from Los Angeles to London, I was lost in a haze of youth and no responsibilities," she said. "Other than work, there was nothing stopping me from having constant fun. But it was becoming boring. I wanted an anchor – I craved it."
It's business as usual in the Paltrow-Martin home.
Fresh from her Bahama's breakup moon, Gwyneth Paltrow posted an adorable photo with son Moses to Instagram.
"Moses Bruce Paltrow Martin turns 8 today. We love you!" Paltrow captioned the above shot. Aside from a beaming Moses, a thin band around the actress's ring finger is also quite noticeable.
It has been two weeks since Paltrow, 41, and Chris Martin, 37, announced they were "consciously uncoupling." In the joint statement, the "Iron Man" star and Coldplay rocker stated, "We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been."
Paltrow, Martin, Apple, 9, and Moses all jetted off as a family to the exclusive and secluded island of Eleuthera before news hit.
On Sunday, the actress shared a beautiful photo from their tropical getaway.
"No line on the horizon #exumas," she posted.
Upon returning to Los Angeles, the estranged couple has kept a low profile. Paltrow was spotted heading to the gym on Monday amid news that her grandmother had died.
Can an actress be a sex symbol and be taken seriously?
It's a grievance Scarlett Johansson has mused about recently, and she has a point.
With two films out right now ("Captain America: Winter Soldier" and "Under Her Skin"), Johansson has made the press rounds, serving as the subject of four in-depth profiles — in Vanity Fair, Glamour, the New Yorker, and the Wall Street Journal — within the past month.
The profiles tend to have something in common: the requisite mention of Johansson's sex appeal, radiance, or voluptuous body… before her body of work. Clearly, it's something the actress is tired of.
