Ryan Reynolds is the “sexiest man alive”

Canadian-born Ryan Reynolds has been named 2010’s “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine. Runners-up include Robert Downey Jr., Jake Gyllenhaal, Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz, Vin Diesel, Justin Timberlake, Glee‘s Matthew Morrison and Canadian hip-hop artist Drake. The full list will be available in this week’s People — the magazine’s 25th anniversary edition — on sale Friday. Reynolds told People that being dubbed Sexiest Man Alive “gives my family entré into teasing me for the rest of my life.” However, he sees a bright side to the new honor, especially with his wife, Scarlett Johansson. “Now it’s going to be, ‘Sexiest man, take out the garbage.’ That does sound better,” Reynolds joked. “The most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers.”

    Finally! They pick someone who actually IS sexy! And a Canadian at that. For the other choices though, ick. Kellan Lutz? If they wanted a Twilight guy, Robert Pattinson is way sexier.

  2. Ally • November 18, 2010 @ 9:41 AM

    Eh, he’s okay. He’s not the sexieat in my opinion, but he’s not ugly

  3. Helen • November 18, 2010 @ 10:30 AM

    @Samantha – he’s sexy, Canadian and funny! (love the quotes at the bottom of the story!)

  4. Danielle • November 18, 2010 @ 1:46 PM

    @ Samantha, have you seen Kellan with his shirt off?? Cause that boy is SEXXXXXXY! Smokin HOT!

    But I do agree with Ryan being sexy but not with Robert Downy Jr. (he’s not sexy!) Jake Gyllenhall should have been runner up & a good canidate for next year

    he is the sexiest man alive i would walk on my husbands face for a kiss

  6. Tweetybird • November 18, 2010 @ 2:51 PM

    Ryan is definitely a good choice! All the Twilight guys should be on it, too.

  7. J.B. • November 18, 2010 @ 6:03 PM

    Of course, he’s Van Wilder.

  8. C-Dub • November 18, 2010 @ 8:49 PM

    I’m not gay, but I see the appeal and I’m extremely pro-Canadian so this is awesome. He’s freaking hilarious and his quotes prove that. Plus he’s a lucky bastard and his wife should make the Sexiest Women list right there with him!!!! Good genes are going to make for hot kids with talent. Go Canada!

    Sexiest man alive and Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins are not not on this list??? ARE YOU CRAZY???

  10. Darlene • November 18, 2010 @ 11:06 PM

    Ryan you have “done” us Canadians proud. I love his humour and humble attitude. AND, those abs are all Canadian!

  11. Donna • November 19, 2010 @ 3:55 AM

    WTF…? Where’s my Johnny? Johnny Depp of course! He’s da Sexiest Man alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<3.

  12. Marie • November 19, 2010 @ 4:14 AM

    None of the above… I say Johnnie Depp is the whole package…!

  13. Helen • November 19, 2010 @ 9:27 AM

    @Darlene great comment – totally agree!

  14. Germain • November 19, 2010 @ 9:43 AM

    For those who love Johny Depp, he was sexiest man alive in 2003 and 2009, he can’t be it every year.

  15. Nadine • November 19, 2010 @ 10:08 AM

    Funny is Fabulous and incredibly sexy. Ryan has the whole package – great looks, hilariously funny and down-to-earth personality. I’d have him in a pinch!

  16. Marie • November 20, 2010 @ 5:44 PM

    Hey Nadine,

    You just described Johnny Depp!

    And yes, it’s for those reasons and MORE, he deserves to be crowned Sexiest Man Alive EVERY year!!!

  17. hayley olsen • November 20, 2010 @ 8:18 PM

    I THINK THEY PICKED THE RIGHT man because he is funny a good actor and does not take his looks too seriously. I just wonder why leonardo dicaprio was not on the list or even picked.

  18. Shakedown • November 20, 2010 @ 9:37 PM

    Yikes!! If this is all they could find to call “sexy”, what a pathetic state the world must be in now. The brows almost knit together over this knob-nosed face.

  19. J. • November 21, 2010 @ 12:00 AM

    What about Ryan Gosling, another Canadian, who’s even sexier! I think Robert Downey Jr. is very sexy, with his intelligence and wit.

  20. mandee • November 21, 2010 @ 9:00 AM

    yum, johnny depp and ryan gosling should have been in there FOR SURE !! <3 i love ryan reynolds, but i think those 2 should be at least in the top THREE lol.

  21. LoveMyVamps • November 21, 2010 @ 6:03 PM

    Oh. My. Godric! What wre they thinking???
    I thought it was called People Magazine.Not teen girls hot for Ryan?

    However,I am glad to see some of our Trueblood guys make the list in People.
    And especially glad that Joe Manganiello got a top nod! He’s a nice,cool and obviously attractive man! I do NOT agree with Peoples selection for the Top honor***Sexiest Man Alive!
    IMHO, This accolade should have been given to Alex, Steph or Joe! It would have been nice to see Ryan Kwanten get it as well!

    Could it be they mentioned the Wrong Ryan?? LOL!
    The Sexiest Man Alive .Should have gone to Either Alex Skarsgard, Stephen Moyer OR Joe Manganiello!
    Hell, even Ian Somerhalder OH, the things i could do with that bad-boy!

    Oh and BTW, I agree”DEPP” would have been an ”GREAT” choice once again as well. Quote. As Lafayette would say, ”THAT BOY IS SEX ON a STICK!
    Yum,Yum,Yum!!!

  22. Debbie • November 21, 2010 @ 9:45 PM

    “Everyone” loves Johnny Depp. What about the “oldies” like Alan Alda, Tom Selleck, and of course, Robert Redford, and the late Paul Newman.Nice.I like Robert Downey, as well. Can’t think- woke up from a nap. lol.

  23. Debbie • November 22, 2010 @ 2:42 PM

    Actually, the sexiest man alive is the one I am dating at the time. I would not trade a night to be with an actor. He would be just another person, and that is wrong.

  24. LoveMyVamps • November 22, 2010 @ 3:29 PM

    Robert Downey Jr.CAN LEAVE HIS TOOTH BRUSH IN MY BATHROOM ANY O’L TIME!;)
