Ryan Reynolds Voted "Sexiest Man Alive"
NOV 18, 2010 - Reuters reported that Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds has been named "sexiest man alive" by People magazine.
It was the first time that Reynolds, 34, made the list in the 25 years since People magazine started it annual "sexiest man alive" feature. Reynolds starred in The Proposal, the recent Buried, and will be seen in the upcoming sci-fi movie Green Lantern.
He joins the ranks of previous winners such as Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.
"You just have to go with the flow," Reynolds told People of his new title. "This gives my family entry into teasing me for the rest of my life."
Reynolds has been married to actress Scarlett Johansson for two years. "Now it's going to be, 'Sexiest man, take out the garbage.' That does sound better," Reynolds said. "The most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers."
Reynolds broke into TV acting in 1990 as a teenager and later won star turns in The Amityville Horror and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. His movie star career really took off when he starred opposite Sandra Bullock in the 2009 hit romantic comedy The Proposal.
