People magazine names Hugh Jackman its sexiest man alive, but we strongly disagree.
Hugh Jackman is a sexy, sexy man. That's what People magazine believes at least. Last week the celebrity mag picked the Australia star for its coveted title previously held by the likes of Johnny Depp, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt. While Mr. Jackman definitely sets our hearts fluttering we can't help but think that there are sexier men who could easily fill Hugh's shoes.
We're not alone. Entertainment Weekly feels Jon Hamm was denied type honors, and comments on the site tout the sexiness of everyone from Gale Harold (Desperate Housewives) to Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors). After hours of searching through hot celebrity photos, YourTango has come up with a list of 10 men who are sexier than Hugh Jackman.
Jon Hamm (Mad Men)
It's easy to think that Don Draper's stylish suits and effortless charm is why we're hot for Hamm, but it's the promise of what's to come that we find so sexy. We've only just discovered this 37-year-old and his recent turn as host of Saturday Night Live has us thinking he's primed for transition to the silver screen, just like former TV vets George Clooney (ER) and Alec Baldwin (Knots Landing).
Paul Rudd (Role Models)
There's nothing sexier than a sense of humor and we can't think of anyone who's funnier than Paul Rudd. We've had a crush on him ever since he stole Alicia Silverstone's heart in Clueless, and his recent turns as a frustrated husband in Knocked Up and a cyncial promoter in Role Models has only left us wanting more.
Robert Pattinson (Twilight)
Twilight is not a good movie (trust us), but we thank the producers for bringing the brooding Pattinson to our attention. His brief turn in the Harry Potter series didn't prepare us for his sardonic smile and tortured personality. We know we can't fix him, but we're willing to try.
Jensen Ackles (Supernatural)
There are many reasons to tune in to the CW's cult hit Supernatural, but our favorite reason is Ackles' just-back-from-hell Dean Winchester. Always ready for a fight, a steamy romp in the back of a car, or just about anything you throw at him. Need more reason to lust after him? Ok, he's 6'1", hails from Texas, and his roommate is Jared Padalecki which means sleepovers at his place would be twice the fun.
Javier Bardem (Vicky Christina Barcelona)
What's that you say? You only know Senor Bardem from last year's Oscar winning film, No Country For Old Men? Then get thee to a computer screen right now and Netflix some of his sultry Spanish films. You won't need subtitles to understand the heat that comes out of his performances in Between Your Legs or Mouth to Mouth. If you're looking to be swept away, then rent The Sea Inside and watch as he uses only his eyes to communicate love as a paraplegic suing the state for the right to die.
Clive Owen (Elizabeth: The Golden Age)
It could be his piercing eyes or his chiseled features, but we think the sexiest part of Clive Owen is his voice. Somewhere between a whisper and melodic lullaby, it's certainly the last thing we'd like to hear before we close our eyes at night.
The "Closer" singer slays us with his bedroom eyes and smooth voice. From his dapper duds to his bedroom ballads, we can't think of a sexier singer dominating the charts.
Oh wait, we just thought of one. The most successful boy band refugee has conquered the charts, the big screen (Shrek 3), the small screen (Saturday Night Live) and a bevy of Hollywood beauties (congrats to Jessica Biel!). We love his sense of humor, just as long as he continues to bring Sexyback to the dance floor.
Zac Efron (High School Musical 3)
We know. It was weird to crush on Zac when he was still a teen, but this babe just turned 21 so you're good to go. Set a reminder in your calendar for Efron's upcoming releases Me and Orson Welles and 17 Again.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Grey's Anatomy)
Nominating JDM as a sexy man does not validate the ridiculous ghost sex storyline that brought back the doomed Denny Duquette to Grey's Anatomy this year. However, it's nice to see Morgan on our TV screens every week, even though he's been hard to miss thanks to turns on Supernatural and Weeds. Like so many on others on our list we're drawn in by his dreamy eyes, but we stick around for the entire retrosexual package.
