Darren Criss goes shirtless on the beach for the People magazine Sexiest Man Alive 2011 photo shoot!

The 24-year-old Glee actor spoke with the mag about being able to win the hearts of girls.

“In eighth grade, I wrote a song for a girl I had a huge crush on…I got a hug out of it, which was a big deal then,” Darren explained.

He also talked about some life lessons he lives by. “I’m a big believer in opening doors for people. And the power of a smile goes a long way. My mom taught me that.”

    He’s sexy as f-ck. Beautiful feet too.

  •!/SaadGKhan SaadGKhan

    Seriously? he has the shortest legs i’ve seen dancing.. he looks terrible with so short legs.

  • huh?

    he’s so cute but when he talks, it’s like “blah blah blah” he talks so much crap. and the gender-neutral answers to the dating questions makes me belive he’s 100% gay.

  • fabp

    nothing wrong if he is…but he’s so gay

  • kubra

    anyway he is one of the most beautiful hearted people on the whole planet ,I didn’t met him but I just know that ,I see that you know and that makes him anything beautiful you can call it handsome or sexy they are just the transmissions .love you darren =)

  • goVols

    awwww…Darren had a crush


    wanna know everything about thisDarren

  • HighDef

    the power of a smile…true , very true

  • Jessica
  • Simms

    I love Darren:):):)

  • Caleigh

    Wow, this guy is the closest thing that comes to normal and he is being criticized so harshly. I think he is a cutie and unlike the pretentious Hollywood narcissistic types that try and charm you but are the usually the dogs and womanizing losers behind closed doors (the Gyllenhals(sp), the Sheens, the Farells, etc), he falters over his words a bit which is adorable. He gives real answers and doesnt try and flash a fake smile to crash land into your panties. Oh well. I guess thats why chicks always end up with dicks and D-bags. Nice guys with short legs apparently finish last.

  • James

    I think it would be nice if People magazine had a Sexiest Woman Alive issue. Something for us guys.

  • Nicole

    Guys. He’s not gay. It’s called “acting”. He’s supermegafoxyawesomehot <3

  • Anabelle

    Seriously people, cut the crap. He’s amazing, in every way possible!
    And whoever makes a joke about his height better be his fan, ’cause no one else is allowed to do that! Except himself and his friends, of course.
    You all have eyes, and hate him or not, he is sexy and you know it.
    Oh, also, whether he’s gay or not, is none of your business. Not unless you’re CrissColfer shipper! :D

  • Hayley

    He’s not gay, and actually he doesn’t care if anyone is or not he just cares about being a good actor, and if playing someone who’s gay can help him achieve that then he doesn’t care.

  • Iffy Miffy

    Ah, intelligent, eloquent, educated, talented … genuinely nice and good guy … all the reason why I am a fan. He is super hot, true and I am pleased as this will help him out in his career but the man is the whole package and all this success couldn’t have happened to a better guy.

    He’s straight, not gay and he uses guys and girls and is gender neutral because he is a great person. He is a huge supporter of equality and LGBTQ issues and does a lot of benefits like the one just upcoming for Trevor project and the AIDS charity. If we had more straight people who acted like him this would be a far better world.

    BTW that second photo, wowza.

  • Kat

    LOL – he’s like 4 feet tall and looks 12 – sexy – FAIL!

  • varga

  • Mariah

    @Erin: Met him, he’s 5.6 with his lifts on. he’s shorter than Cris Colfer who is 5.7. LOL

  • Ava

    @Iffy Miffy: *sigh* all the qualities i look for in a man. Very rare but hopeful I’ll have mine one day :)

  • nessie bella

  • Kiki

  • Rachel

    I’m asking Santa for Darren for Christmas.

  • CC

    ??? Chris Colfer is like 5’10″

  • Kiara

    Stop the hate comments, he’s amazing the way he is nobody can change him

  • superdupper

    @Mariah: But that’s why we love him. Because he looks normal, as opposed to some weirdly buffed out meathead. Normal in this case is sweet and adorable…and supermegafoxyawesomehot.

  • superdupper

    For the negative folks on here…if you don’t find him sexy, why are you looking at his shirtless pictures?

  •!/LinaM12 Lina Maldonado

    Damn he’s soooooo freaking hot.I would totally date him if I was his age.

  • Monika

    ohh I love his eyes! and this smile mm :)
