Sexiest People Alive

This month, ESQUIRE magazine declared Mila Kunis to be the "Sexiest Woman Alive."

While I have to agree that Mila is a very attractive woman, I don't know how this is determined since I don't remember voting or even being asked my opinion on the matter. Of course, they may have considered me biased since I have a rather strong predilection toward a certain redhead.

On the flip side, earlier this week, PEOPLE magazine claimed that Channing Tatum is the "Sexiest Man Alive."

Once again, my opinion was not sought out in this matter, and I have to admit that I just don't see it. Also, I was not asked for a face shot so the people who decided this could compare all the people alive to make this determination.

While I will admit that 'sexy' is a relative term that will be applied to different people for a variety of reasons, the fact remains that there are a lot of incredibly attractive people who are outside of Hollywood. However, they will not get the recognition they deserve simply because they have not been in a movie covered in layers of make up and filmed at the most beneficial angles after spending hours with their personal trainers.

I challenge my readers to pull their eyes away from the Hollywood spotlight for a moment to take a look at what the 'real' people of this country have been up to this week.



Never mind. I retract my original statement.

  1. Mila would have gotten my vote if they asked.

  2. You're only showing the bad side of Twinkies. Let's get some photos of beautiful people eating Twinkies up in here!

    1. I did find a few, but didn't find it as funny. I am proof of media bias.

  3. Those 'most beautiful' or 'sexiest' issues annoy me. Of course, I like to look at pictures of hot men, but deciding who is the best? Dumb. Because, as you said, it's all relative. Channing Tatum? Cute, but not my sexiest. Not by a long shot. It was kind of inevitable, though, after he did Magic Mike this year.

    Yeah, those Twinkie lover pics...not hot.

  4. HAHA!

    As for Mila and Channing, meh. To each his or her own. I think the choices have more to do with actors' prominence and exposure in numerous films over the year.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Yeah and they have to be well known. I still want to make the list.

  5. I was curious why my wife was willing to brave torrential rain the other day to trudge to the mailbox--it was because People's Sexiest Man issue was waiting for her. I don't know why she bothers because my picture is never included, so what's the point?

  6. No pun intended, of course (Magic Mike).

  7. Is it bad that I don't know what that Channing person is?

    1. Is it bad that a woman in this country does NOT know who Channing Tatum is, but DOES know who I am?

      I don't think that's bad at all. You just made my day.

  8. This was so funny Brett! My girls just asked me if the People magazine staff were all crazy, because none of their picks made any sense. Sexy is subjective.

    And those Twinkie pics, hilarious and fantastic for my diet! Thanks.

    1. Thank you. My daughter said something similar. There were some good looking people on that list, but couldn't justify how about a quarter of them made it.

  9. I just watched Magic Mike, and you know something? I don't care how sexy a guy is, no dude should wear a thong.

  10. I must agree that Mila Kunis is hot...did you see Black Swan?
    I must also agree with Marianne to a lack of knowledge of the dorky looking teenybopper you refer to as "Channing Tatum". Seriously, he looks a bit vacuous. I wonder if he's smart, just looking dumb, or if he's genuinely one of the "cute but dumb" ones. (and not really that cute)

    1. I am not questioning whether or not she is sexy. She is, but I am challenging the paradigm a bit. Who determines this and why is the pool of people available to choose from so small.

      Kirsten said she had NO problem with the declaration of Tatum, as their choice, but said he is a complete arrogant jerk in every interview she has seen him in.

    2. And yes, I did see Black Swan.

    3. IF blogger had a like button I would have smashed it on "Black Swan"
