People Magazine named Magic Mike star Channing Tatum as 2012’s Sexiest Man Alive on Wednesday.
Whether you agree with the mag’s decision or not – Channing beat out hotties like Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron – there’s no denying the actor is a total stud. In honor of People’s long-running tradition, we’re sharing our list of the 10 best Hollywood hunks to have won the coveted title in past years. Read more …
The rumors are true! People did indeed choose Channing Tatum — star of the “Citizen Kane” of stripper movies, “Magic Mike” — as their “Sexiest Man Alive.” I already told you how I feel about this, but to recap: since Ryan Gosling always turns the award down (this is just my theory, but I think it’s solid), it should go to the second sexiest man alive, which I happen to believe is Channing Tatum. He is hot as hell, has a manly thick neck, and also had an incredible year, having launched his career to a whole new level with the power of his pelvis. Certainly a better choice than Bradley Cooper and I am frankly glad that they stopped giving this BS award to the same roster of aging hotties like Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and George Clooney. So congrats, Channing. I shall celebrate this achievement by watching “Magic Mike” for the 10th time.
Plaid is the preferred fabric of lumberjacks, Catholic school students, and hipsters, and it enjoys such a diverse range of fans for good reason: it can be dressed up or dressed down, and is available in infinite color combinations. Whether they’re wearing plaid to the grocery store or fashion week, celebs can’t seem to get enough of it either.

For those of you who are worried about how I’m taking the news that, once again, People magazine is naming someone besides Ryan Gosling as the “Sexiest Man Alive,” do not fret. I am alright. After all, I firmly believe that, for the second year in a row, Gosling actually rejected the title when it was offered to him. People would not be that stupid, you guys. Of course he was their pick last year and this year (and probably every year after). He just doesn’t want it. Come on now. Have some faith. This year I’m just happy that People‘s second choice is actually worthy of the title. (Bradley Cooper was a bust, let’s face it.) The magazine will reportedly be bestowing that honor upon Channing Tatum, my backup dream celebrity boyfriend. He is not above accepting such honors. While I love that the Gos is a little bit of a snot, the thing I really like about Channing is that he’s a bit lowbrow, you know? Ryan’s trash is Channing’s treasure and what not. Yin and yang. Anyway, now you know how I feel about this, so you can go back to worrying about more important things, like the fate of our country and stuff. [Gossip Cop]
Listen, I know the holiday movie season still lies ahead, but I am confident in saying that no other film will come close to the astounding cinematic spectacle of “Magic Mike,” hands down my favorite movie of the year. And I’m even more sure that no other Blu-ray/DVD will get as many plays either — thanks to the “too hot for theaters” additional dance sequences, my rewind button will be putting in overtime. Loved “Magic Mike” or still dying to see it? Well, surprise, surprise, three lucky readers will win a copy of the “Magic Mike” Blu-Ray/DVD and a Channing Tatum autographed trading card. Hot.
