Ryan Gosling Reportedly Turned Down People's Sexiest Man Alive

Has Ryan Gosling repeatedly turned down the title of People’s Sexiest Man Alive?!

“They tried a few times, especially during his huge year in 2011,” a source told The Wrap of the 34-year-old actor, who has reportedly turned them down every time.

“While I look forward to the day when Ryan Gosling is named Sexiest Man Alive, this was not his year. Our 2014 honoree Chris Hemsworth was our first and only choice. If you want to know why, just look at him. I mean, seriously,” Jess Cagle, editorial director for People and Entertainment Weekly, told E! News.

Ryan‘s fans have been upset since Chris got the title a few days ago.

    Ryan Gosling go star in a movie than actually makes money.
    Your pseudo-try-hard-too-cool-for-school routine is grating.
    Especially when this line is always wheeled out to crap on other actors

    I respect him as an actor, I like the guy, I do, and I get why he’d not want to buy into the SMA thing but sooner or later he’s going to have to start playing the game in some way because if he continues to shut himself out of Hollywood too much, it’s going to be detrimental. I’m not saying pap photo ops, or turning up to the opening of an envelope, selling baby pics etc, he’s allowed privacy like everyone else, but it does feel like he’s maybe ostracizing himself just a little

    americans turned NUTS?

  • Arrow 12

    I just don’t think he is all that. There are better actors and better looking actors out there. I think he is kind of full of himself. Sorry just how I feel.

    When SMA first started the star did not agree nor was told before hand. The magazine used stock or pap pictures. Now SMA is up for sell to the star/pr team that is willing to do an interview, photoshoot and whatever other backdoor deals are made.

  • Michele V

    When did Gosling claim that he wanted to be a box office star? Seriously.

  • Caryn Carrington

    Maybe like Skarsgard he doesn’t care. I think he just wants to act in movies that appeal to him and doesn’t care for the rest of the “show.”

  • Scarlett

    And good for him, but these days there’s has to be some level of engagement with the rest of it. It’s sad but it’s true. And especially if he ever jumps into a franchise.

  • Missy

    Oh for Christ sake no decision would make ALL people happy.

  • Doryphore

    He’s a douche. He’s one of those actors who takes himself seriously. He’s trying to distance himself from his “Notebook” heartthrob image and fears SMA title would jeopardize that. That’s why he keeps taking “tough guy” roles, which is laughable. He was laughed out of the Cannes Film Festival for “Only God Forgives”–this was the second time in a row they mocked him (A Place Among the Pines).

    He needs to get over himself and his fake New York accent.

    He is so blah… Long face, not good-looking at all…

  • carrie

    There are some actors who want to be celebrities and there are some actors who just want to be actors

  • iLoveMe

    He’s an average Joe with abs. I don’t understand the appeal. I’ve seen better looking dudes at Starbucks.

  • cynthia

    So let me see if I understand this correct. He’s artsy and serious but he’s in a relationship with someone who will drop her clothes on demand, never mind full frontal nudity. I guess that means he’s attracted to artsy and serious also. So much for the privacy. They have let the genie out the bottle already. I’m just saying!

  • Zoee

    That is why he is THE FEMINIIST RYAN GOSLING :

  • Anton Green

    I love the smart and quiet guys – he’s a private guy and is able to avoid a lot of the extra stuff. He does the promotion he needs to and then does his real life.

  • IloveJaredLeto

    Average looking guy for me.
