American actor Garrett Clayton has always been hot, though recently he’s been uploading hotter-than-ever summer body photos to Instagram. Yet, in a new project, he wants us to remember people don’t ALWAYS look like that… so he uploaded a real, no-filters morning photo.

27-year-old Garrett Clayton, The former Disney star who we saw last year as gay porn star Brent Corrigan in King Cobra, is joining fellow actor John DeLuca for a project called #WokeUpThisWayChallenge, in order to “bring some realness back to social media.”

It’s really easy to get caught up in comparing your life to “perfect” ones portrayed on social media.

Constant comparison of our lives to other people’s edited highlight reels isn’t good for our collective mental wellness.

So here’s an unedited pic of me from first thing this morning with a pimple i’ve named Henry and very sleepy eyes.

So what does Garrett look like first thing in the morning? Well:

Good afternoon!!! Today I’m standing with @johnny_deluca to launch the #WokeUpThisWayChallenge & bring some realness back to social media. It’s really easy to get caught up in comparing your life to “perfect” ones portrayed on social media. Constant comparison of our lives to other people’s edited highlight reels isn’t good for our collective mental wellness. So here’s an unedited pic of me from first thing this morning with a pimple i’ve named Henry and very sleepy eyes. Here’s how you can participate/share: 1) Post of photo of yourself of how you look when you wake up in the morning (no hair done, no makeup, no filter!!) with the hashtag #WokeUpThisWayChallenge and talk about how you’re spreading the message to bring realness back to social media 2)  Tag 3 (or more!) friends to challenge them next to post a morning photo 3) Mention in your caption that if people don’t want to participate by posting a photo, instead donate money to @ladygaga’s @btwfoundation which is committed to promoting the wellness of young people and inspiring them to create a kinder, braver world. NOW I PICK @officiallaurentaylor @portiadd And @bengiroux! YOU’RE IT!

Granted, that’s still hotter than most of us in the middle of the day. But we appreciate the gesture.

And here’s Garrett when he’s fully awake:

Goodbye Greek sun. How I’ll miss you! 😄
