George Clooney Wanted Ryan Gosling to Be Sexiest Man Alive

George Clooney Wanted Ryan Gosling to Be Sexiest Man Alive

George Clooney leaves a restaurant after having lunch with his The Descendants co-star, Beau Bridges, on Wednesday (November 16) in Los Angeles.

The night before, the 50-year-old attended the premiere of the dramedy with gal pal Stacy Keibler.

On the red carpet, George told Extra he was hoping his Ides of March co-star Ryan Gosling would be crowned People‘s Sexiest Man Alive – a title that went to Bradley Cooper.

“[Ryan] really wants it. He’s been saying … the whole time we were on the set of Ides, he was like, ‘How did you pull that off?’ So I called up Brad Pitt and we worked with him for weeks on the walk. We told him how to train, everything,” George, who’s been named Sexiest Man Alive twice, joked.

I couldn’t agree with him more! I’m a Gosling girl myself.

Oh George is funny about him and Brad getting together to show Ryan lol I agree with George People magazine got it wrong. It should have been Ryan but it is what is.

I don’t know how on earth Bradley Cooper of all men got the honour. Bore.

i don’t know why ryan did get it. although it’s kind of corny and ryan doesn’t need it anyways, we all know he’s sexy :) maybe they didn’t want the give the title to a canadian ryan for the second year in a row lol.


What this article is about and what George has been saying since Matt won this award is . . . give others a chance! He, Brad and the others who had won this are already well known. This ‘award’ has become a PR press thing!
P.S.: I still believe George is as gay as Ted Casablanca and Rob Shuter.

He’s got such an irreverent sense of humour. Remember this story from Anna Kendrick?

——”George gave me such a hard time about shooting Twilight,” she explains. “Whenever I came back, it was like, ‘Oh, sorry, this isn’t the Twilight set. You’re not working with Mr. Handsome.’ He called Rob ‘Mr. Handsome.’”

To help him cope with his crush, Anna got Rob to sign his April GQ cover for George.

Being the gentlemen that he is, R-Pattz signed the cover, “To George: Best of Luck. Hang in there. Love, Rob.”

Not to let Rob have the upper-hand, George signed his May 2009 Esquire cover to Rob.

He wrote, “Dear Rob: Thanks for all the inspiration. I’m a huge fan. Love, George (two-time Sexiest Man Alive)”—–

I want to be there when George (two-time Sexiest Man Alive) and ASkars (Five times, motherf*cker, Five times!) sit down and have a few beers / Limoncellos / glasses of wine together…

In bed? Oh-la-la!

@Irreverent Sense of Humor: Ah no, George can’t have my ASkars, even if he does like blonds.

love love Ryan Gosling! Next year I’m hoping <3

@Amanda: Ryan Gosling is kind of a cocky douchebag, too. And there’s NOTHING sexy about Disneyland. Nothing.

@>seeit – your’re joking right? George Clooney is one of THE smartest guys in Hollywood no marriage or kids. And we ALL die alone in the end.

whatever! @ 11/18/2011 at 5:34 pm

@Cheryl – DUH because he’s rich and famous you fool

George/Georgina @ 11/18/2011 at 8:18 pm


It’s better to die surrounded by people who love you. Don’t be a fool. Your admiration for somebody is overboard. If you’re getting paid, that may be okay. There are some ways to promote somebody without looking like a fool.

Bradley Cooper and JLo must share an agent. Staged romance, people magazine titles… Think he is gonna get a few endorsements soon!

whatever! @ 11/19/2011 at 5:50 am

@George/Georgina – DUH don’t need to get paid by someone to tell me who I like or dislike. what’s your problem George is smart compared to alot of Hollywood idiots. Saying he will die alone because he doesn’t have a wife/partner in his life is pathetic.

@seeit – Or would you prefer George to be like Rod Stewart and have kids by lots of women.

@seeit – I bet your’re old and ugly
