Counting calories is no way to live. And while our society has seen a dramatic shift in the way that we talk about female bodies in the media, when it comes to the portrayal of the male form — we still have a long way to go.

Hollywood not only expects but demands physical perfection from its leading men. At least, that's how it used to be. But now, thanks to these 15 male celebs with proud dad bods, that trend is slowly starting to shift.

Vin Diesel

Do you remember that one episode of Friends where Joey is trying to get back in shape but ends up giving himself a hernia while lifting weights? "Damn you, fifteens!"

That's what first popped into my head, and I absolutely love Vin for it.

Andy Cohen

There isn't a sweatshirt on earth that could conceal those rock-solid pecks and broad chest that Andy Cohen is flaunting these days. Judging by Andy's impressive quads, it also appears that he isn't skipping out on leg day, either.

Will Ferrell

Get your tickets to the gun show early, ladies and gentlemen, because you know that Will Ferrell (Ron Burgundy) is going to sell out fast. Watching Will pump iron in Anchorman is easily one of the highlights of the entire film.

Jack Black

For being a bigger guy, Jack Black has all the poise and fluidity of an elite ballerina. Jack's social media is plastered with videos of comedy-star performing a wide array of choreographed dance moves and high-level stunts.

Jason Segel

When Jason starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, fans were quickly made to realize that he's all man — even without a six-pack of rock-hard abs. His softer physique makes Jason resemble a big cuddly teddy bear, and I for one am all for it.

Alec Baldwin

It's true that Alec Baldwin recently reached out to Pete Davidson for tips on how to get in better shape. But it's readily apparent that the former 30 Rock star is happily embracing the dad chapter in his life.

Vince Vaughn

In case you didn't already know, Vince Vaughn likes to eat. Watch any one of his films released over the past two decades, and you're bound to find at least one scene of Vince happily stuffing his face. His body positivity and love of eating are something we should aspire toward.

Pierce Brosnan

True, he may not be in the same fighting shape as he once was while starring in GoldenEye, but Pierce Brosnan is still every bit as formidable. If you don't believe me, just go and ask James Corden.

Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler isn't just rocking an impressive dad-bod, but he has the dad's sense of fashion to go along with it. I feel like these days, he's perpetually rocking an oversized pair of gym shorts and it makes me incredibly jealous.

Chris Pratt

Andy in 'Parks and Rec'.

Yes, I've seen Guardians of the Galaxy. I'm also well aware of how muscled Chris appears in The Tomorrow War. But to me, he's never looked better than when he was playing the lovable doofus, Andy Dwyer, in Parks and Recreation.

Seth Rogen

In case you didn't already know, Seth is a huge pothead. Excuse me, pottery head. He's living proof that you don't have to look like a Men's Health model in order to make it as a leading man in Hollywood.

Paul Rudd

Paul Rudd's allure is not unlike that of Batman. The whole point is that underneath the mask, Batman could be anyone. And with a body like Paul's, he proves that absolutely anyone, regardless of how toned they may or may not be, can be a star.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Of course, Leo is on this list — he's practically the first celebrity to have ever been celebrated for rocking a dad bod! If someone with all the talent and sophistication of Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't care how he's portrayed in the press, then why should any of us?

Will Smith

Will declared via Instagram that when this photo was taken, he was in the "worst shape" of his life. It's both inspiring and insulting all at the same time. Will might have 30 years on me, but I easily have 30 pounds on him.

Dax Shepard

Dax Shepard has the dad bod that all men should aspire toward. He's the perfect balance between fit and flab, and I mean that in the most complimentary of ways. Plus, he's still a total babe to boot.
