Actor Leslie Jordan has shared a topless “stud muffin” throwback photo from 1980, and the thirst is very real.

Last weekend, the 66-year-old actor posted the 40-year-old snap of his younger self, complete with furry torso and thick moustache, leaning against a blue convertible.

“I just called 1980 and told it I wanted my 6-pack back — except in those days I was drinking and I’m afraid they’ll think I want beer,” Leslie wrote.

By our calculations he would’ve been 24 or 25 at the time if it was indeed 1980.

Thousands of Leslie’s followers gave their approval of the photo.

“Why am I so thirsty all of a sudden?” one wrote.

One urged the actor to “get that chest hair back too,” prompting Jordan to reply, “I still have it, except it’s snow white.”

Another called Leslie Jordan a “stud muffin,” to which he responded, “Honey, I was young and cute. Everyone in Miami wanted some of that!”

“I’m not sure what happened. The shutdown, of course, we all had to hunker down and stay at home,” he explained at the time.

“I would just notice, oh my gosh, I’ve got like 20,000 more [followers].
