Is it hot in here or is it just these stars?

Ah, the celebrity thirst trap. Posted on Instagram to make followers everywhere turn into real-life versions of the heart-eye emoji, celebrities have been posting them since the dawn of time (or at least Instagram). Like Kim Kardashian‘s naked selfies or totally unplanned, unposed photos of stars looking hot while doing ordinary things, the thirst trap is, in some ways, our version of modern art.

Even though they’re practicing social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic, these celebrities aren’t afraid to get up close and personal with their cameras. Check out the best thirst traps celebrities are posting while stuck inside.

Kylie Jenner has swimwear to model, people.

No ifs, ands or butts about it: Kylie can't keep her swimwear collection under quarantine.

Of course, we’ve got Jake Gyllenhaal unfortunately putting on a shirt while doing a handstand.

The actor was nominated by Tom Holland for the challenge and, TBH, thank you Tom Holland and only Tom Holland for that.

Stanley Tucci did a Negroni tutorial that made us feel things.

A thirst trap for the actually thirsty: Tucci making the perfect Negroni.

Bella Hadid modeled her favorite coat (and nothing else).

If she can't wear the coat outside because she is social distancing responsibly, what else is she supposed to do!?

Ansel Elgort posted an NSFW photo and managed to raise thousands of dollars.

Elgort deleted the photo, which was taken by his photographer father, Arthur Elgort, because it was just a little too much for Instagram. Nevertheless it was technically for charity so ... it's a thirst trap with a cause!

Halsey posted a photo of her skinny dipping to get everyone's attention.

She was trying to make sure that her followers stopped to take in the importance of Earth Day and living sustainably.

Christopher Meloni took a photo with his abs — we mean, kilt.

But let’s be real, the abs are the true star of the show.

And then Outlander star Sam Heughan showed off his best Scottish Highland Fling.

The video would only be improved upon if Heughan had Meloni’s kilt.

Mark Wahlberg encouraged us to be healthy and stay well, while showing off his abs, so TBH we barely heard a word he said.

No harm in watching for a second or third time.

Ramona Singer posted a video and photos of her cleaning in a nightgown.

The scenario just screamed, “Oh, this old thing? I wear this all the time while I mop my floors.”

Dorinda Medley poked fun at her Real Housewives of New York City costar by doing the same.

It’s … a lot!

The Queen of the Thirst Trap, Emily Ratajkowski, snuggled her dog.

Nothing to see here! Just a girl and her dog!

Jason Derulo “spent the whole day at the pool,” so you know there were plenty of thirst traps to post.

Chrissy Teigen shared her self-proclaimed thirst trap with her puppy, Petey.

Petey may be new to the fam, but Teigen is showing him the ropes.

Chris Hemsworth worked out with laundry detergent and dirty clothes and somehow kept it sexy?

Proof he is a real-life superhero.

Brielle Biermann cheekily asked her followers, “How’s your social distancing going?”

It’s fine, Brielle. A little bored, but we know that social distancing is the only way to flatten the curve and keep our hospitals and medical centers from becoming overwhelmed.
