Sexiest Man Alive - 2011



Well, wonders never cease.  People magazine finally got it right and actually selected a sexy man as their "Sexiest Man Alive", Bradley Cooper.

Remember some of the past so called "sexiest men alive" choices?  George Clooney?  Good actor but hardly what I would consider sexy.  Back in 1998 they chose Nick Nolte.  Oh PHUL-LEASE!  Just a few years later Nick graced us with the all time great mug shot.

Last year's choice was Ryan Reynolds.  Sure, he was cute but "sexiest man alive?"  I don't think so.  And remember, I AM AN EXPERT.  There are a lot of things I don't know but one are where I excel is identifying a sexy man.



If I had any reservations about choosing Bradley Cooper for this year's "Sexiest Man Alive" it is that that OTHER drop dead gorgeous beauty that goes by the name of Ryan Gosling wasn't chosen.  Oh wouldn't I like to be the cream filling between those two Oreo cookies.

  1. Ha! I feel the same way toward Bradley Cooper as you feel toward George Clooney!

  2. Oh Cubby, what can I say? I like George Clooney like a brother. I can see where he is handsome the same way I look at a beautiful woman. I recognize their attractiveness but there is absolutely no sexual attraction. George is a wonderful actor and good person but to me there is nada sex appeal. Now Bradley, who isn't really my type (blonde) but there is something about him that just pushes all my sex buttons. I think a lot of the attraction has to do with his personality because he comes off to me as not stuck on himself the way Brad Pitt is. Now that I've said that, I think Ryan Gosling is stuck on himself but man oh man, he pushes all my buttons too! So there it is. Some turn me on and some don't. George doesn't, Bradley does and Ryan does. If I had a threesome with Bradley and Ryan my head would probably explode. With George and Brad Pitt, I would probably fall asleep.

  5. Ehhh, he doesn't do it for me. George totally does though! My hair stylist does Ryan gosling's hair. Have I told you that already?

  6. RG is too young to be TSMA - most are close to or over 40. I know nothing about RG past his abs but Bradley has an amazing personality - he is a great talk show guest - smart, charming and modest. And that hairy chest! OMG!!!

  7. There is much crying foul in the blogosphere over the choice of Cooper over Gosling. I agree -- I experience Ryan as one of those people who don't have to try to be sexy, they just ARE. They have natural presence.

  8. I sooooooo agree with you. Past winners of the title have been handsome but not "sexiest man alive". Finally a man worthy of the title has won it!

  9. I agree with you too Mark! The past winners have been handsome but not what I consider sexy. Now Bradley Cooper (and Ryan Gosling), now that's SEXY! Someone finally got it right at People mag!

  10. Will,

    You are SO RIGHT. Ryan doesn't have to try to be sexy,he JUST IS. The first time I saw him in a movie ("Half Nelson") I was smitten. WOW. He has IT. I like Bradley too. Great personality and that with the looks makes him irresistibly sexy.

  11. Sean,

    I didn't really notice Bradley Cooper until I saw him on a couple of talk shows. Not talk shows really but just being on a show and his personality is just so adorable. He is totally natural. He doesn't have that "I know I'm good-looking" attitude that handsome actors like Brad Pitt have that, to me, make them unattractive. I remember one interview on CNN at the twelve noon new hour that the female anchor was doing and the other female anchor had to join and Bradley was so embarrassed at the fuss they were making over him. I could have done him right there.

  12. Kimberly,

    George is handsome and a nice guy and he has the right political leanings but sexy? Not to me. Now Bradley and Ryan make me weak in the knees. And tell you stylist that she does a great job on Ryan's hair. The only time I didn't like his hair was when he was wearing that ratty wig "Blue Valentine." People magazine finally got it rich this year in picking a truly sexy man.

  13. Will,

    I agree with you 100%. The truly sexy just have that natural presence. I can even see it in women. To me, even as a gay man, I could see where Hedy Lamarr has sexy. Both Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling have "it".
