This topic has absolutely nothing to do with motherhood other than maybe to prove that we’re not numb and dead just because we had children. I thought it would be fun to look back through People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive and talk about our favorite ones. (It’s Fun Friday Ya’ll!)
Ryan Reynolds was named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive this week. I’m all on board with that call. We loved him in “Two Guys and Girl and Pizza Place” in 1998 (not the show just him) and also loved him in “Van Wilder” in 2002. He was super cute in “The Proposal.” Here is a link to all his work. Here is a link to his photos from People.com for the Sexiest Man Alive honor.
Jon Hamm – I’m totally into! His longtime girlfriend is the sister of Michael’s friend and everyone says what a spectacularly nice guy he is!
Kellan Lutz – Really young and I have no idea who he is.
Drake – Have heard of him and think he’s OK.
Matthew Morrison – I think he’s very cute. Love him on “Glee.”
Jon Bon Jovi – Didn’t like him growing up but ever since he cut his hair I totally think he’s hot.
Joe Manganiello – He’s from “True Blood.” He’s OK.
Robert Downey Jr. – Can’t decide on him.
Jesse Williams – No idea.
Justin Timberlake – I think he’s very talented (singer, actor, comedian) but I’m not that into him.
Vin Diesel – OK.
Jake Gyllenhaal – I am totally in. I am loving his naked ads with Anne Hathaway! I want to see the movie just to see him naked. His eyes and beard are doing it for me. Look at the Entertainment Weekly cover. I will be hiding it under my pillow at night!
I thought Joe Jonas was on this list but he isn’t. He’s on the sexy at any age list. I have to say I am grateful he is 21 because I do think he is soo hot. I love it when he wears his glasses. I feel bad watching the show with my Rosie thinking impure thoughts about a Jonas.

I love George Clooney and actually like his photo better from 2006 than in 1997. He’s aged that well. I think Brad Pitt looks awful in both photos even though in general I think he’s good looking. The one that just makes my heart flutter is John F. Kennedy Jr. I once interviewed for a job at “George” magazine and was terrified of meeting him. I met with the editor in chief instead of him. Kind of a bummer but she was much easier to talk with.
So of this list of the past Sexiest Men Alive, who is the most Sexy??? Who do you like the most on the current list? Who are your favorites from past years?
