Who's REALLY the Sexiest Man Alive?
At 46, Pitt is still the all-time sexiest man alive (we're still dreaming of certain scenes from "Thelma and Louise"), though he insists upon covering up his hotness with a scraggly beard.
Hamm is so handsome you can't even believe he's for real. Even better? He's devoted to his longtime girlfriend, talks openly about his struggle with depression and is willing to kiss a dude on "SNL."
We're not so sure about that silly mustache, but when we see James Franco in Gucci ads, we can't stop staring. Plus, this 32-year-old will only get better with age. Bonus: he attended Columbia for graduate school.
There's a reason why they call Dempsey's "Grey's Anatomy" character McDreamy. Did McSteamy ever stand a chance?
Mr. Big was the all-time catch on "Sex and the City," and just like Carrie, we'd pick him over Aidan any day!
We find the show "Private Practice" unwatchable -- except for the unfathomably beautiful Taye Diggs. Yep, the sexy librarian look works for guys, too!
A-Rod is like a guilty pleasure: We know he's cheesy, we know he's a player, but we simply can't resist his charms. Apparently, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson and Madonna feel the same way.
We get it: Reynolds, star of the upcoming "Green Lantern" blockbuster, has six-pack abs, a good sense of humor and a gorgeous wife in 25-year-old Scarlett Johansson (recently named GQ's babe of the year).
That said, we're not really feeling it. Maybe he just hasn't been around long enough -- or reminds us too much of a player who broke our heart -- but Reynolds doesn't make the cut on our personal Sexiest Man Alive list.
Neither does (gasp!) George Clooney, who always seems kind of smug and pompous, doesn't he? Or Johnny Depp, who looks like he needs a shower, stat.
Who would we choose? In our book, People was totally remiss in not including "Spider-Man" and "127 Hours" star James Franco in their top 12. Plus, where's Brad Pitt this year? And do People's editors really find Reynolds more attractive than the sweltering Jon Hamm?
From Pitt to Patrick Dempsey, here's our list of the real sexiest men alive.
