Protests Over Sexiest Man Alive

Well, we weren’t entirely thrilled with Bradley Cooper’s selection as People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, but we wouldn’t take to the streets over it. Some people, however, see it differently. About 15 people wearing Ryan Gosling masks showed up in the rain outside People headquarters in Manhattan to support the candidate they think should have won this very important title.

Then there were the virtual supporters – fans set up an entire Facebook page devoted to Ryan Gosling’s deservedness of the Sexiest Man Alive title. It seems they may have overlooked the fact that – although he didn’t take the top title – Gosling was among the top 125 featured in the magazine that hits newsstands today.

People, on the other hand, says the stand by their man:  “Bradley Cooper is the whole package. He’s gorgeous, talented, brainy, loves his mom, can cook up a storm and speaks fluent French! Who can argue with that?”

Ok, they sold us.



Bradley Cooper is the Sexiest Man Alive

At least, according to People magazine. Daniel Cooper – the star of The Hangover II – was named by the magazine as the sexiest man alive. He joins the ranks of Brad Pitt and George Clooney. And to that we say … really? Not that Cooper isn’t good looking – he’s a successful star in Hollywood, how could he not be?! – but he’s going to be listed alongside people like Johnny Depp, and we kind of don’t think they’re in the same category.

Of course there’s also that unquantifiable je ne sais quoi that Cooper definitely has – on-screen he’s charming yet quirky, lovable yet macho. He’s been linked to Jennifer Lopez and starred in big blockbuster movies so it’s not like he doesn’t have street cred. We’re just not sure if he’s Sexiest Man Alive material.

Hugh Jackman Named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive”

Aussie Hugh Jackman has been named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Live” for this year! Previous winners have included Matt Damon>, George Clooney and Matthew McConaughey. Hugh is starring in the upcoming epic movie “Australia” with Nicole Kidman. Sayeth Nicole on Hugh’s hotness:

“Oh…my…God. Women’s jaws drop when Hugh walks into a room… He’s such an Aussie bloke – loyal and passionate. That’s a great combo.”

Have to agree with Nicole, there, Hugh is quite easy on the eyes! But…he’s married, ladies- and has been for 12 year. His wife, Deborra-Lee Furness said ” I could have told them that years ago! Obviously Brad Pitt wasn’t available this year!” Hugh makes sure his leading ladies meet Deborra when he starts a new project.

“The first thing I always do in a movie is go to dinner with my leading lady and my wife. When they meet Deb they like her more than me anyway.”

Deborra kinda likes it when Hugh comes home in character too! She often tells him not to take off his on-screen look. Apparently, she likes the “stockbroker” look the best, but got a kick out of Hugh’s “prisoner” look, complete with tattoos. Guess that helps keep things exciting! Hugh and Deb have two children together, eight-year-old Oscar and three-year-old Ava.

At 40, Hugh Jackman has managed to accomplish a well-rounded career. He has starred in blockbuster movies like the “X-Men” installments and “Swordfish,” romantic films such as “Someone Like You” and “Kate & Leopold” and has even lent his voice to cartoon characters in animated films “Happy Feet” and “Flushed Away.”
Debbora Lee is keenly involved in the field of international adoptions, and she and Hugh kicked off the first-ever National Adoption Awareness Week in Australia Monday. Deborah Lee says that:

“When I started speaking out, the media kept saying “Deborra-Lee and her lobby group”, but it was just me and my big mouth. It started with me looking at the reality of 103 million orphaned children in the world, and as a mother, thinking: ‘How can we have two year olds walking the streets, fending for themselves, looking through rubbish for food?” When we came back( to Australia), people kept asking me why it was so difficult to adopt here, because they know we have two adopted children. ..I was thinking, Hang on. I’m trying to care for these kids in Africa, and people are walking up to me telling me they’d like to adopt – so what’s in the middle? It’s these bureaucrats pushing paper around the desk for 20 years! So I wanted to facilitate the adoption laws being changed here solely for the purpose of finding families for the children overseas who I was already fighting for.
It was a big family decision for me to speak out because I knew it was going to be invasive. But if I’ve go the level of celebrity where people will listen, I’m going to use it for something that’s worthwhile.”

Congrats to Hugh AND Deborra Lee!
