The weather is warming up as we move from spring to summer, and you know what that means — it’s shorty shorts season!

On Tuesday, hunky gay actor Matt Bomer was spotted frolicking on the beach sporting nothing but six-pack abs and the tiniest yellow shorts you’ve ever seen that leave nothing to the imagination. The 46-year-old actor was photographed in Malibu, Calif. while filming the upcoming Apple film Outcome.

After devouring every episode of Fellow Travelers, we were well aware of Bomer’s sex appeal, but these photos highlight his silver beard — someone’s moving into their daddy era — and his ripped physique that has some fans saying he’s now a twunk. The shorts he’s wearing already have a nearly nonexistent inseam, but he also has the waistband rolled down, making them even smaller and showing off a lower back tattoo — someone should win a Pulitzer for this brave act of photojournalism.

And, of course, Gay Twitter is going FERAL for Bomer in his micro shorts — and we don’t blame them! One person posted a side shot of Bomer that shows off just how high the side-slit is on his shorts (you get a peak at his cheek!) and wrote, “Matt Bomer in these lil slutty short shorts, Milo Ventimiglia wake UP! Do something!” Ventimiglia is also well known on X (formerly Twitter) for his love of working out in the shortest of shorts.

Another person commented, “Excuse me while I rewatch Fellow Travelers.” Honestly? Same. Someone else wrote that they “hope Jonathan Bailey has a matching pair,” clearly not remembering that Bailey was photographed in his own tiny pair of jean shorts!

Other people called him a DILF and a twunk — again, hard agree. Another commenter said, “I know his husband will be tearing that lil thang up.”

Bomer is not the only celeb to sport short shorts. Ventimiglia and Bailey have also gotten in on the trend, alongside stars like Ricky Martin, Paul Mescal (who also frequently appears on social media showing off his thick thighs), Conrad Ricamora, and Luke Evans.

Bomer donned his shorty shorts for his starring role alongside Keanu Reeves, Cameron Diaz, Kaia Gerber, Laverne Cox, and Jonah Hill (who also co-wrote the script and is directing), in a dark comedy that follows a Hollywood starlet Reef (Reeves) who “must dive into the dark depths of his past to confront his demons and make amends after he is extorted with a mysterious video clip,” Deadline reports.
