John Stamos is one of the most handsome 52-year-olds to ever play an uncle ("Full House") and grandpa ("Grandfathered") that we can think of. And to prove that — at least in his case — 52 is the new 30, he's gone bare in the new issue of Paper magazine.

Well, bare-ish. The caption that accompanied Monday's Instagram posted by the magazine came with a cheeky caption: "The New Moon of @JohnStamos" and looked like this:

A fine form, indeed!

And he's in good company: Remember how Kim Kardashian tried to "break the Internet" with her bare bum last year? That was also on the cover of Paper.

As for Stamos, he shared some insights during the interview that went with his brief exposure: The craziest thing he has done in 2015 is "pose bottomless for PAPER."

But lest you think this is a vanity move, Stamos notes that he doesn't have a Google Alert set up for his name. "No way. I rarely read about myself — mostly because I'm tired of 'me' — and also if you believe the good stuff, you have to believe the bad stuff. I just stay away," he said.

As for social media accounts like Instagram, he has a love-hate relationship. "Sometimes they all drive me crazy," he said. "Other times, I'm thoroughly entertained."
