Milo Ventimiglia recently grabbed prime-time attention with his "hardworking ass" on the series premiere of "This Is Us," and on Monday, he stripped down for daytime TV viewers.

On Monday's "Ellen," the actor agreed to take off his shirt and get all wet —for a good cause, of course.

And she was right! Cyrus pitched a ball at a target situated next to the tank and that's all it took to rain water down on the star and raise big bucks.
