Ryan Reynolds now officially the Sexiest Man Alive

This morning, People announced that Ryan Reynolds is its 2010 Sexiest Man Alive. The issue hits stands Friday, at which time we’ll be able to see if the magazine resisted the urge to show him shirtless. (Can you imagine the letters?) The Green Lantern star proves why he’s really on the list — his sense of humor. “Now it’s going to be, ‘Sexiest Man, take out the garbage.’ That does sound better,” Reynolds says of how the title might turn into a perk with his wife, Scarlett Johansson. “The most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers.”

People also has a tease of some of the runner-ups on its website, which includes a pretty phenomenal shot of Jon Hamm, Kellan Lutz lying shirtless on a truck, Drake, Glee‘s Matthew Morrison, Jon Bon Jovi, True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello (wet), Robert Downey Jr., Grey’s Anatomy‘s Jesse Williams, Justin Timberlake, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Vin Diesel, winner of People’s first-ever Sexiest Man Alive on Facebook campaign. The cover also shows that Johnny Depp and Conan O’Brien make the cut.

What are your thoughts on People‘s pick, people?

    Did we really need a magazine to tell us that? :)

    • steph

      Totally agree.

      • Lois Lane

        Totally disagree, it has to go to Brandon Routh, and by the way the Green Lantern movie is going to stink, the costume makes meteor man look awesome by comparison

    • TorontoTom

      CONAN O’BRIEN??? Are you kidding? Maybe if it’s “Most Repulsive Man Alive (or Dead)”, then he’d win in a landslide. Sexy? Doesn’t even do it for the Masturbating Bear…

      • Steve

        Hey! It’s the Self Pleasuring Panda!

    • LOVER

      Conan? Really? I got a little vomit in my mouth for that.

    • musica1

      Ryan looks sweet, but there’s nothing sexy about him.

    • Jen

      Heck no! I’ve known this for years! People is just late to figure it out. Thankfully, People magazine will provide plenty of pics!!! YAY!

  • Jenna

    Where is Bomer???

    • AmyLou

      I agree!!!

      • LeeA

        Who’s Bomer? I seriously don’t know.

      • Chris

        He’s on some USA show. I can’t think of the name.

      • Jenna

        Matt Bomer, he’s on White Collar

    • Yup

      Bomer is the sexist man no matter what People says.

      • Yup

        Ryan Reynolds is beautiful but has no personality. He can’t be the sexiest man alive because he’s so dull.

      • Yup

        Boomer is the sexiest man alive, not sexist. My bad. lol

      • Jenna

        I would just think he would have been in the running

      • Talia

        A magazine such as People will “never” select an openly gay man as Matt Bomer is to be the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE.

        I don’t think it should matter, but People mag is PC, so Bomer’s chances are nil to be ever selected.

    • Christy

      I totally agree. Matt Bomer is #1 in my book!! I cannot take my eyes off him when he is on screen.

    • Toto

      Too right! Matthew Bomer, Victor Webster, Nathan Fillion, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jude Law, and Sean Connery should all precede Conan. I’m Ok with Jon Bon Jovi though.

    • To Jenna

      Would you feel the same way about Matt Bomer if you knew he was gay?
      Not that it matters, he is handsome but he lacks sex appeal.

      • gah

        i’ve known he was gay since he was on chuck and i still can’t take my eyes off him. he is gorgeous. he and jon hamm shouldve tied in my opinion

      • J

        Dude, I didn’t know he was gay. Hmm… doesn’t change my opinion that he is one very sexy man.

      • musica1

        Yeah, I think most us Matt Bomer fans know and really don’t care. His orientation is his own private business, but his sexiness is free for all to enjoy.

      • Lynn

        1, Who doesn’t know he’s gay by now? 2, How would that change how attractive I find him? He’d look and act the exact same way. And I’m pretty sure everyone posting here would have the exact same chance with him, gay or straight. Which is to say, it would never happen either way.

    • musica1

      Matt Bomer is 1000 times sexier than Ryan Reynolds.

    • Stefy

      I totally agree with u!!!!

  • Jenn

    The only one that I care about is Jon Hamm.

    • grindy

      Thank you Jenn. I totally agree.

    • grindy

      Thank you Jenn. I totally agree. Jon Hamm is a real man.

      • Trixie

        Me too agree!
        Sorry, Ryan Reynolds is a boy Jon Hamm is a MAN
        Big Difference.

      • Juneau

        I’m with you Trixie. People screwed it up this year. How can they NOT go with Jon Hamm?

    • Karate Pants

      He clearly should have won. Who voted in this thing, anyway?!?
      I was sorta shocked by how hot Matthew Morrison’s and Jake Gyllenhaal’s pictures were too.

    • kate s

      Jon Hammm is the ultimate sexy!

    • To Jenn


  • BG 17

    Not the greatest picture of him for the cover though – what did they do, just take a shot as he was sitting down for the interview? I guess the recession affects everyone…

    • Liz

      That was my first thought too!

    • Mary

      Yeah, I thought it was a horrible photo too. His hair looks very “80s game show host.”

    • Andrea

      They actually have a different picture on the cover that just hit the stands in NYC

  • dctoronto

    I always thougth that Ryan Reynold’s incredible body compensated for an ok face and dead eyes.

    • fanny

      I agree. I thought he has no expression whatsoever.

    • Mary

      He has beady, dead eyes to me. Something just seems off and just not impressed.

    • mowgo

      RR is boring.

  • Chichi

    Zzzzzzz. This cover means nothing without senior Javier Bardem.

    • Ericalina

      Come on he’s not that old!

      Oh you mean señor.

      • Chichi

        Yes, yes I did.

      • ericalina

        love him either way ;)

    • Javier Fan

      Ay, Ay, Ay, Javier Bardem, oozes sex appeal. What a gorgeous man.

  • Michelle

    As it is neither David Tennant, Ian Somerhalder or Alex Skarsgard, I don’t really care.

    • sutherngurl

      wait…Alexander Skarsgard isn’t in the issue? That changes things.

      • Michelle

        Alex isn’t but Stephen and that dude who played Eggs are. Explain THAT.

      • sutherngurl

        ok, Stephen Moyner looks like he has the same affliction that Marc Anthony has. he always looks sick, and Eric/Alex is like one of the only reasons I watch the show. This is a travesty

      • MKR

        Stephen’s sense of humor alone makes him ten times sexier than brooding ‘I don’t like publicity’ Alex. His whole face lights up any time he’s with Anna. That kind of love for his wife is sexy as hell. Not to mention he is FINE to look at, too.

    • Coyote

      Since it’s not John Simm, it’s not worth giving a further thought.

  • Ana

    Um, ew. I find Ryan Reynolds to be really gross and pervy looking. Jon Hamm should have had this.

    • deedee

      Amen to that! Hamm has no competition in this contest

      • CW

        Yeah they missed the boat on Jon Hamm.

    • Stef

      Another vote for Hamm. They blew it!

  • Erica

    I didn’t even have to look at who wrote the article. As soon as I saw “Joe Manganiello (wet)” I knew only Mandi could have written this! The pictures look great!

  • Reena

    he doesnt really do much for me but then again I think that it should have gone to TEAM COCO! so i dont what that really says about my taste LOL!

  • Cricket

    I checked the link for Jon Hamm and just wo…*swoons dead away*

    • Mary

      That is a HOT picture, I agree! I really hope they acknowledge Hamm next year. Ryan Reynolds is a hottie, but Hamm’s got these rugged sexy looks. Mmmmmm….

    • Cate

      Yes, that IS a fantastic Hamm portrait.

  • Amanda Banana

    OMG Conan!!!!! I’m glad I’m not alone in finding the Cone Bone sexy. The only ginger that makes me tingle.

    • Anne

      Agreed!! I’m so excited to see CoCo on this list!

  • skinnyfat

    Oh no they didn’t. Jon Hamm is definately the SMA. He’s a real man, not a pretty boy.

  • Ron

    Where is Robert Pattinson??? Jon Hamm is overrated… lol about Ryan Reynolds and “dead eyes.”

    • Diva

      Let’s not go there. Sparkles does not need to be on every list.

      • Karate Pants

        Funny – but, to be fair, he’s definitely sexy enough to rank among Conan O’Brien and RDJ. Really.

      • Sara

        Amen Diva!! & no Karate Pants, he’s not even close to both of them

    • StewyFan

      Exactly. Robert is the hottest emm effer out there. And Diva, Rob doesn’t sparkle, that’s Edward. Try again.

  • chattypatra

    What’s with the blah grey t-shirt? Ryan deserves better. Heck, WE deserve better!

    • Maureen

      I agree. We deserve a shirtless picture. ;)

      • sutherngurl

        I second that notion

    • Melody

      hear, hear!
