Ryan Reynolds: People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2010!

Ryan Reynolds: People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2010!

Ryan Reynolds has been crowned People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2010!

“My body naturally wants to look like Dick Van Dyke,” jokes the 34-year-old actor, who stars as the Green Lantern next year. “When I stop training, I turn into a skin-colored whisper.”

Will his wife Scarlett Johansson, who was crowned Babe of the Year, give him any special treatment at home?

“Now it’s going to be, ‘Sexiest man, take out the garbage.’ That does sound better,” Ryan says. “The most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers.”

Other Sexist Man honorees include Justin Timberlake, Jake Gyllenhaal, Drake, Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz, Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm, True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello, Grey’s Anatomy‘s Jesse Williams, and Glee‘s Matthew Morrison.

Ryan takes the Sexiest Man title from Johnny Depp, who took the cover in 2009. Hugh Jackman was 2008′s Sexiest Man.

See who else made the cut at Ryan‘s double cover below!

  • Cynthia


  • @beth

    Was pattinson mention in this article no, you’re one of those sad people who’s obsess over people you actually dislike. :( grow up, it should have been jon hamm or someone else.

  • KAY

    ewwwww, he isn’t even cute!!?!

  • Beth

    haha, i didn’t say he was? I was just saying i’m glad it wasn’t him…
    i don’t dislike him at all, he’s actually really funny and down to earth i just don’t find him attractive, chill.

  • Butter_Fly

    I DON’T agree at all. He’s a good looking man, but there are far better men out there that should have been on the cover.

  • AJ

    I don’t care about the guys on their lists. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is on top of MY list. ;D

  • anon

    didn’t see that coming!

  • yeah right

    I repeat myself today. Please. He is not a sex symbol.

  • Susan

    It should have been Jon Hamm.
    I don’t find Ryan Reynolds sexy at all.

  • Susan

    It should have been Jon Hamm.
    I don’t find Ryan sexy at all.

  • Thai

    Sexiest man alive? Are u for real? I knew ppl/Americans are stupid, but not THAT STUPID!!!

  • Audrey

    My favourite from this list is Jake Gyllenhaal, he’s so hot and funny!

  • WTF

    I’m sorry this is 100% wrong no way is Ryan Reynolds the Sexiest Man Alive PERIOD .

    The most important question is WHO THE HECK makes this decisions away at People Magazine and JJ answer me that?

    I would but Channing Tatum, Brian Austin Green, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, the main men in True Blood, Mad Men, Twilight, seriously anyone off the street before Ryan Reynolds as the Sexiest Man Alive 2010 etc.

    Why the heck also are people like Drake on there. Just because your famous doesn’t necessary mean your automatically good looking.

    Ryan Reynolds wife yes but him body heck yes face hell no. People Magazine just got this wrong, good thing I see this as a joke.

  • yeahwhateverlulz

    Mhhhhhh no.

  • kiki

    Dont agree at all, Ryan is not really for me! Hot body for sure but face wise not so much. They probably arent considered famous enough but I think those Vampire Diaries boys are super hot, Ian especially…. oh and Jensen Ackles definitely deserves to be considered the sexiest man alive, he is gorgeous.

  • Gaby

    People just considered his abs… cuz he’s so BORING.
    Also, this looks like merchandising for ‘Green Lanter’ movie ¬¬’
    I miss when real HOTS where the sexiest man, like Hugh Jackman!

  • Gaby

    @wtf Why the heck also are people like Drake on there. Just because your famous doesn’t necessary mean your automatically good looking.


  • Gaby


  • He

    @Butter_Fly: It’s not about that. Most “sexiest man alive” winners have something to
    Promote and it’s all a big pr deal between people mag
    And the stars publicist and agents …. The enire thing is silly.

  • http://JJ Amy

    Um seriously???? He’s average…like any average Joe off the street. I’m not saying he’s not attractive…BUT the sexiest???? Again…seriously???

  • He

    … But you guys must be blind. He’s 6’2 and built to perfection. Have you seen him shirtless? Knowing this site you people are probably just mad because that old fool brad Pitt didn’t get the top spot. Get over it!

  • 4 Real

    The People Magazine yet the people don’t vote nice.

    Really????? Just went through the list of 12, Really??? I hope that’s not the right order because someone was drunk when they made these decisions.

  • no way

    This is somekind of a sick joke? Little beady crossed eyes.

  • sunflower

    Jake Gyllenhaal should be on that cover. I’ve seen the trailer for his new movie and he is gorgeous. If this is the best they can do I will not be buying the magazine. Ever. Ryan Reynolds is a nice, ordinary bland ordinary guy. He looks like the manager of a Walmart.

    Jon Hamm would’ve been my second choice behind Jake Gyllenhaal.

  • Cristobal

    He has a nice body.

  • Katie

    Johnny Depp is still Easy on the eyes but he made that movie with Bones!!!

  • kristen

    James Franco !!

  • Iffy Miffy

    Not even close. I like him but not even close.

  • uh…

    People getting worse as the years go by. 1st mistake was Matt Damon, don’t get me wrong, he’s successful and may be a tad bit cute and plays Jason Bourne, but sexiest man alive? He’s nowhere near it! and now Ryan Reynolds? He looks like a chipmunk and just about any actor you can think of these days have a set of abs, he had to have made the top because People wanted to generate buzz for that flop green hornet coming out next year. All of all celebrities Ryan Reynolds is a sexy man alive? Out of all rappers Drake and his pig face is on the list and Brad Pitt still makes it looking the way he’s been looking for the past 5 years? I feel bad for People magazine, cuz I think this is the worst pick they’ve ever done. I would’ve gone Brady but he ain’t famous enough for People and I’ve would’ve chose Pattinson, but he’s too young I guess. But Jake Gyllenhaal and Jon Hamm would’ve been wiser picks.

  • busted

    WHO is in charge of picking..They should have chosen an Iconic man. Someone that has been around for a while.. or I could have stomached Jon Hamm.. even though I thinkg SMA should be a World STar..

    Ryan is so Vanilla and that plastic face of his is YUCK. he has a good body but so do tons of others..

    People has lost all creds if they had any left at all.. I hope this is their worst seller of all time. Sick of this guy. And Sick of people going on and on about him all because of his body..
    Big NOPE on him..

    won’t be buying this one at all..



  • lenny
  • PEOPLElover

    Wow you are all ignorant. Fine if you don’t agree with the choice but to say he’s not good looking is just ridiculous. No one in the country even knows who Jon Hamm is, and Robert Pattinson has been in 3 movies and is a CHILD. Get a life. If you worked at PEOPLE the magazine would sell about 5 copies.

  • jules

    i like Ryan and think he’s quite hot and all, but sexiest man alive is a bit of a stretch…looking forward to seeing him in Green Lantern though.

  • Faye

    He is not even close to being the sexiest man alive(or in hollywood). The photos they chose don’t make a case for him, he looks handsome thats it.

  • luke

    laughable! people magazine lost all credibility back in the day as they let matt damon buy his sexiest man alive title

  • Where is Ralph Malph?

    Wrong, People Magazine, Ryan is NOT the sexiest man alive. A big movie needed to be promoted, so that’s how it happened. His people campaigned the hardest. Public opinion doesn’t count.

  • SMA

    Actually Green Lantern comes out in February, and you don’t promote a movie 4 months in advance. Get your facts straight before you post stupid comments!

  • SMA

    Actually, Green Lantern doesn’t come out until February and you don’t promote a movie 4 months in advance. Get your facts straight before you post stupid comments!

  • brooke

    YESSSS! Ryan is and will always be the sexiest man in Hollywood. He’s perfect! And he deserves this title every year. He’s one of the sexiest men I’ve EVER seen.

  • wild

    You guys are taking this sexiest man alive thing way too serious.


    lmfaoooooooooooooo. ok

  • Cassy

    I think he’s hot!

  • Lmao

    @busted: Idiot. Go back to paGe number 666666666 of the latest brangie thread and don’t leave.

  • Anonymous

    I’m not really surprised as The Green Lantern is a Warner Brothers project, and both Warner Brothers and People magazine are owned by Time Warner. The SMA title is a marketing tool used by Time Warner to promote whoever happens to be in one of their upcoming projects. Occasionally they will pick a wildcard not under Time Warner in some way, but that’s extremely rare.

  • luke

    Yeah and that’s why they released the Green Lantern Trailer yesterday. Because they promote movies 4 month before the actual reales date.Get your facts straight before you post stupid comment like that!

  • SMA

    Actually when you promote a movie, the stars appear on magazines and tv shows the two weeks before, not 4 months before. That’s why Jake Gyllehaal is everywhere NOW, b/c his movie comes out next week.
    Love when people who have no clue about this industry try to make comments about it!

  • smh

    I notice People Magazine did not feature any ethnic males. What about asians, blacks, latinos etc.???…smdh!…@ hollywood’s “white” beauty. What about the asian actor from Hawaii 5-0!, Shemar Moore, Michael Ealy (The Good Wife & Takers), ??…These guys are not “sexy” at all!…The ONLY “Ethnic” guy is DRAKE & JESSE WILLIAMS! who are bi-racial!..I ONLY like out of this list would have to be TRUE BLOOD’S “JOE MAGANIELLO!”
