People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2010 is hunky Ryan Reynolds, who happens to be married to GQ’s Babe of the Year, Scarlett Johansson.
I think Ryan is a fabulous choice for sexiest man! But if he wasn’t chosen, who would honor the title?
People’s Sexiest Man Alive honor is a timeless staple that has produced some major eye candy in the past. Here are Famecrawler’s top five picks!
David Beckham: The sexy soccer star has surprisingly not won the title and I can’t understand why! He should be voted one year!
Clive Owen: This hot English actor won a Golden Globe was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his appearance in the drama Closer (2004).
Ryan Gosling: Yet another gorgeous Canadian, Ryan earned mainstream success in his romantic role in The Notebook with Rachel McAdams. The couple started dating on set and were together for three years.
Jake Gyllenhall: Gyllenhaal was named one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” in 2006. He earned a nomination for an Academy Award in the category of Best Supporting Actor in Brokeback Mountain. Romantically linked to Kirsten Dunst and Reese Witherspoon, the hot actor seems to be single!
Olivier Martinez: This hunky French actor became known in North America after appearing in Hollywood-produced features, including Unfaithful. He and Halle Berry are currently dating, having travelled around the world together.
Honorable mentions go to Colin Firth, Robert Downey Jr., Javier Bardem and Paul Rudd (yes!).
Last year, Robert Pattinson became the Sexiest Man Alive 2009 which was very fitting alongside the opening of Twilight Saga: New Moon. Should he have won again?
There is obviously no age discrimination because we’ve jumped from Robert Pattinson to George Clooney! George Clooney has already been a sexiest man alive so he doesn’t need to be again! George Clooney was Sexiest Man Alive by People in 1997 and then grabbed the honor once again in 2006.
Brad Pitt also earned the title twice in 1995 and 2000, and so has Johnny Depp in 2003 and in 2009.
Other past winners include Denzel Washinton, Harrison Ford, Richard Gere, Pierce Brosnan, Jude Law, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Matthew McConaughey and Hugh Jackman.
