Damon the “Sexiest Man Alive”

Matt Damon People magazine coverMatt Damon is the latest Ocean’s Thirteen actor to be named “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine. George Clooney held the honor in 1997 and last year, while Brad Pitt was the top dog in 1995 and 2000. “You’ve given an aging suburban dad the ego-boost of a lifetime,” Damon, 37, told People. Coming in second is Patrick Dempsey of Grey’s Anatomy and the new movie Enchanted. Many say Dempsey should’ve been People’s first choice, but apparently Clooney and Pitt openly campaigned for Damon to get the honor. It’s good to have friends in high places. Also on the list were Ryan Reynolds, Pitt (again), James McAvoy, Johnny Depp (Sexiest Man of 2003) and Will Smith.

    Well, I’m a girl….and I don’t see it either!! LOL…..Clooney and Pitt must have paid some big bucks for this outcome!!!

    I don’t get it either. Sexiest man alive? He’s sort of cute, but sexy? Sorry, no way. Wonder which of Clooney and Pitt’s friends are next.

    yeah right, sexiest man alive, the only actor ever to be sexy is clint eastwood in the early spaghetti westerns, now that is true sexy

  6. Melissa • November 16, 2007 @ 9:55 AM

    I really don’t see it either. He’s cute, but dorky and thats it. Johnny Depp Should Win every year.

    For all of you who’ve seen Team America, I just have one thing to say…..”Matt…Damon”

  8. Claire • November 16, 2007 @ 10:46 AM

    Nope, the guy’s not sexy. He just doesn’t have it. Johnny Depp, George Clooney, yes any day. (Also agree with leona above, Clint Eastwood was HOT!)

  9. Gewher • November 16, 2007 @ 11:59 AM

    I think he’s sexy.

  10. Monique • November 16, 2007 @ 12:32 PM

    I think Matt is cute & I’d definatly go for beers with the guy…
    but SEXY? My choice would be Johnny Depp. Depp oozes sex without even trying.

  11. R • November 16, 2007 @ 1:04 PM

    Don’t get it… a great guy but wouldn’t want to jump in bed..at least that’s what sexy is supposed to be, right?

  12. jag • November 16, 2007 @ 1:38 PM

    I definitely agree it should be Depp, hands down. Even Pitt is a better choice that Damon. I don’t get the hipe over Clooney … he’s not aging well. But I do have to say that Matt Damon was sexy in the Bourne films.

  13. Katherine • November 16, 2007 @ 1:39 PM

    Johnny Depp should be the sexiest man alive every year! Patrick Dempsey is also sexy, but Matt Damon… I don’t think so!

  14. Kristi • November 16, 2007 @ 2:06 PM

    I have to agree with People on this one. After seeing all three Bourne movies this summer (the first 2 to refresh before seeing #3) I dreampt about Matt Damon for weeks. He does it for me! He’s so much like my husband. Actually on second thought, I disagree with People…my husband is the Sexiest Man Alive!

  15. Nancy • November 16, 2007 @ 4:29 PM

    The only sexy face on the cover of People’s Sexiest Man Alive should be……mmmmmm…..mmmmmm……yummy……Wentworth Miller from ‘Prison Break’!! Now HE is soooooooooo sexy!!!!

  16. Al Hala • November 16, 2007 @ 7:01 PM

    What about Denzel?

  17. Elaine • November 17, 2007 @ 5:57 AM

    Nah……..Clint Eastwood doesn’t cut it for me, especially when he started hanging around with Nancy Reagan, trying to get into politics on her back. And I’ve seen better looking necks on turtles! Now…. for sexy?? Try Benicio Del Toro, I think that fellah has a lot of sex appeal. Clive Owen really does it for me too!!! Ohhh Yah!!!

    Frankly, I’m amazed Cate Blanchett didn’t win.

  19. Anonymous • November 18, 2007 @ 9:43 AM

    George W. Bush is the Sexiest Man Alive.

  20. Nancy • November 19, 2007 @ 12:34 AM

    Why don’t they do a cover of ‘The Sexiest Man Deceased’???????

  21. Slippery Pete • November 19, 2007 @ 10:08 PM

    Cate Blanchett is sexier than Matt Damon; he should have won instead.

  22. Nancy • November 19, 2007 @ 10:43 PM

    Is he deceased??? LOL.

  23. kiss kiss bang bang • November 21, 2007 @ 2:30 AM

    Ok…..he is cute, not sexy. Although he’s in his mid to late 30s (37 i think)…..He looks a lot like a young boy, he’s a man child and i do not think ” sexy ” when i see little boys, thats probably a good thing.

    Johnny Depp all the way and ps i agree george clooney is not ageing too well
