David Beckham, Russell Brand and Carlos Pena: Celebrities Who Love Speedos (PHOTOS)

Speedos were once considered a fashion faux pas. Now, those shorter than short snuggies are making a major statement, especially with Hollywood's sexiest hunks.

The tight and barely-there swimwear is being embraced by stars including Rock of Ages' Russell Brand, Big Time Rush star Carlos Pena and soccer stud David Beckham -- just to name a few.

Many guys go with traditional swimsuits, but these particular fellas like to stand out from the crowd by wearing this European staple.

However, if Speedos aren't really your style, check out hotties in "regular" swimwear below.

What do you think about Speedos? Hot? Or not? Sound off in the comments.

Celebuzz caught up with Pena, 22, about why he chose to wear a Speedo during a recent vacay to Hawaiian -- and his answer might surprise you. Watch below.
