Crowned the title, the husband of Scarlett Johansson says, 'This gives my family entree into teasing me for the rest of my life. Now it's going to be, 'Sexiest man, take out the garbage'.'
After his wife Scarlett Johansson secured her new title as GQ's Babe of the Year, Ryan Reynolds landed his own too. The George Lutz of "The Amityville Horror" has been crowned as People's Sexiest Man Alive, joining the ranks of Sexiest Man Alive title-holders like Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey and Brad Pitt.
"Well, there was a little moment of disbelief, and then you kind of settle into it. Really, you just have to go with the flow," Reynolds said of his Sexiest Man Alive title. "This gives my family entree into teasing me for the rest of my life. Now it's going to be, 'Sexiest man, take out the garbage.' That does sound better. The most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers."
Ryan further credited being Canadian for his new title. The "The Proposal" actor said, "We're trying to nationalize sexy. Sort of like Medicare. There's an inherent ability to be self-deprecating. That has served me well in my career and personal life. We can ice skate on anything. Even wood. Our accents are adorable. We can apologize virtually on demand. For anything."
While Reynolds landed the top spot of People's Sexiest Man Alive list, "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm followed on the second place while "Twilight" saga actor Kellan Lutz came in third. Other Sexiest Man honorees include Justin Timberlake, Jake Gyllenhaal, Drake, Joe Manganiello, Jesse Williams and Matthew Morrison.
A one-hour TV special, "25 Years of Sexy: People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive!", which is hosted by Kim Kardashian is aired on ABC at 10 P.M. ET on Wednesday, November 17, featuring an exclusive on-camera interview with Reynolds and behind-the-scenes look at making the issue as well as interviews with other former sexiest men alive winners.
