20 Times Lip Gallagher From "Shameless" Gave Us Life
The Odyssey Online

If you haven’t watched Shameless, you need to. It premiered in 2011 on Showtime and received critical acclaim for its portrayal of the highly dysfunctional, poverty-stricken Southside Chicago-based Gallagher family, held together not by their alcoholic father Frank or absent mother Monica, but by the strength and resilience that the six Gallagher siblings--Fiona, Lip, Ian, Debbie, Carl and Liam--share for one another. From countless run-ins with the police to their incessantly clever money-making schemes, the Gallagher siblings never fail to demonstrate that blood is thicker than water in their unconditional love and support of one another.

There’s one Gallagher sibling, however, whose badass persona, incredible intellect, and secretly sensitive side constitute just a few of his attractive qualities and make him a truly underrated star. Lip Gallagher, the second oldest of the Gallagher clan, manages to bring more to a show than I have ever witnessed a character single-handedly do before. Portrayed by Jeremy Allen White, Lip manages to captivate our hearts time and time again through the way in which he protects, stands up for, and fiercely loves his brothers and sisters.

Lip's willing to take a fist to the face if it means his little brother Ian doesn’t have to, spends all of his free time assuming various identities and taking the SATs for classmates, writing papers for his peers, and working other odd (and often illegal) jobs to make ends meet in his family’s home, and even adopts his baby brother Liam as his own. Then, of course, there’s the added plus to his generous personality that he looks unbelievably good without a shirt on. To put it plainly: Lip Gallagher is hot.

Through the seven seasons, time and time again, Lip manages to show us why we as viewers just love him so much. Sure, he’s a bit reckless, but who doesn’t love a bad boy? Here are 20 times Lip Gallagher gave us life:
