The 51-year-old movie and television mogul, who has signed on to produce Sister Act III, shared a post-workout photo of his chiseled body on Wednesday evening, unlocking the unquenchable thirsts of many across America.

"This is what a midlife crisis looks like," Perry said on Facebook and Twitter. "I'm 51, single, and wondering what the next chapter in my life will look like. Whatever it looks like I'm going to walk with God, be the best father and man I can be, hold my head up high, and try to look my best doing it!! In a world with so much sadness, please try and stay in the good! Merry Christmas and let's look forward to 2021 bringing us peace!"

According to Page Six, Perry was previously linked to model Gelila Bekele, as the pair are parents to a 6-year-old son.

The real action, and reverse thirst-trapping, took place in the comments (and likely, his DMs.)

Knowing women would swim the waters, other men thought to capitalize and shoot their own shots... with Perry as an unwitting accomplice.
