So People Magazine have issued their Sexiest Men Alive… 2012 list and it was not without a few surprises! As you may or may not know they tend to name their Number 1 but then have a brief list of runners up! And this year the winner is…. (Of COURSE) The swoonsome Channing Tatum!
Since the lovely people AT People don’t number the men in order of preference I will take it upon myself to do so here, so read on if you want to see my picks of the bunch and those who didn’t make the cut who really should have!
Personally I’m wondering why People Magazine took so long to crown him the Sexiest Man in the world, Ange and I used to hang half naked pictures of Channing in our kitchen when we first discovered him in “She’s the Man” allll the way back in 2005! Although we always were ahead of the trends! 😀
2. Matt Bomer
Well, DUUUUUUHHH this is a no brainer. The man is a God. AND he’s the only gay on the list, the man is always breaking boundaries and looking unbelievable while doing so! We love you Matt!
3. Chris Hemsworth
Again, I hate to brag but Chris Hemsworth has been a “Sexiest Man Alive” in my eyes since I first laid eyes on him in my FAVOURITE soap “Home and Away”, in which he played Kim. The ultimate softie / dreamboat in the Bay!
…I’ll stop with the obligatory topless pictures now… Maybe!
4. Bradley Cooper
Ok, so I lied but how could I NOT put in a picture of Bradley topless. This picture says it all really. He’s a handsome man with an amazing body AND he knows how to enjoy life and is probably GREAT craic to hang around with… And I know you can’t see into his eyes in this picture, but don’t forget they are as blue as the water he is standing in…
5. Max Greenfield
I am SO glad Max made it onto this list! Too often funny men are looked over in the sexy stakes, but personally I find funny men the sexiest! He even looks well in a fat suit! Check out this HILARIOUS video of him as a young Schmidt! He made this video himself in an out-take! Love him! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hddsKBHKqm8
6. Oscar Pistorius
Oscar is not only sexy but he is one determined man! Both of his legs were amputated at the knee at the mere age of 11 months old but he has never let this hold him back in displaying his sporting prowess. He played every sport he could in school and is known as “The Fastest Man on no Legs” but in People Magazine, he is merely known as “sexy”. Hear, hear!
7. Paul Rudd
This photo epitomises why I love Paul Rudd. He doesn’t take himself too seriously and I don’t think he realises how gorrrrgeous he is! I first fell in love with him in “Clueless”, I ached to see him and Phoebe make things work in “Friends” and I snorted Fanta out of my nose laughing at him in “Role Models”. He is talented across the board and never ages. Paul Rudd we salute you!
8. Richard Gere
Obviously there are SO many things I could say about Richard Gere but I will choose just one.
“Pretty Woman”, nuff said! That and I HOPE my husband looks THIS GOOD at 63! Holy Mary!
9. Denzel Washington
The man needs no introduction. He’s always on the list, he will always be handsome and he will always be the only “Denzel”.
10. Ben Affleck
I’m sure there is something sexy about Ben Affleck… I just don’t see it… I can’t see it after the whole “Bennifer” thing… Or maybe I don’t want to see it!? Either way, he’s low in my countdown at number 10! Sorry Ben!
11. Blake Shelton
Ok… Bear with me, I’m Irish and I have NO idea who this man is… But I can see that he is kinda / sorta sexy… He wouldn’t be in my top 12 EVER though!
12. Damien Lewis
WHAT?! Like… Just… WHAT!? Crazy Americans.
OMISSIONS THAT UPSET ME
1. Jason Momoa
This man needs to be more famous. He is absolutely the most handsome man in dreads I have ever laid eyes on!
2. Dan Ewing
My dream man. Actually the most beautiful man in the world… If Chris Hemsworth can make it to Hollywood from Home and Away I am praying to GOD that Dan does too!
3. Liam Neeson
Funny, charming, amazingly talented, adoring to his late wife, Irish… Oh Liam, let us count the ways in which we love you!
OMISSIONS I WAS SURPRISED BY (BUT NOT PARTICULARLY UPSET BY)
1. Ryan Gosling
What can I say about Ryan!? I just don’t see it. Sorry ladies!
2. Robert Pattinson
While I wouldn’t mind if my boyfriend looked like R-Patz (And I definitely would never cheat on a boyfriend who looks THAT good) the mass appeal of Robert leads to a lack of appeal to me! I must just be fickle like that!
Hope you enjoyed this post! Were any of you surprised by any omissions to the list!? Let me know who YOU think is the sexiest man alive!
