ICYMI because you were too busy watching Kendra Wilkinson eat some antelope balls or something, earlier this week Chris Hemsworth was crowned People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2014, which basically gives us perving rights for a whole year.
Whilst we were initially pretty darn chuffed with his award for being bloody beautiful (which he is), once we started to think about all the other sexy men in celebsville, we begun to feel that some of them may have been kinda robbed.
ENTER RYAN GOSLING.
Because, thinking about it, Ryan doesn’t really have any teeny, tiny flaws on any part of his godlike body does he?
The answer here is NO.
After the world exploded and claimed than Ry, 34, had been well and truly neglected of the most prestigious award in all the world, reports sprung up that seem to hint that Ryan actually declined receiving the honour himself.
Maybe he just doesn’t want to put a label on all that sexy, alright?!
However, now People’s editorial director Jess Cagle has waded into the debate, telling TheWrap.com that it’s all just a pile of boohockey, actually.
She revealed: “While I look forward to the day when Ryan Gosling is named Sexiest Man Alive, this was not his year.
“Our 2014 honoree Chris Hemsworth was our first and only choice. If you want to know why, just look at him. I mean, seriously.”
We’re looking, and it’s a pleasant experience we have to admit. BUT SO IS STARING AT RYRY.
Original rumours started just after the honour was announced, with insiders claiming left, right and slap-bang in the centre that People had tried to stick a ‘Best In Show’ rosette on Ryan for YEARS.
One claimed: “[The magazine] tried a few times, especially during his huge year in 2011. The consensus was he’s too serious for it, too artsy.”
Can you ever be too serious for sexy? How about SERIOUSLY SEXY?
Another source reported than Ryan refused to do the cover shoot that went with the accolade, which just sounds like a load of rubbish to us.
They said: “PEOPLE asked Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and Jake Gyllenhaal to be the pick and they all declined.
“A couple other people were offered it as well, but they settled with Chris because he’s hot, but he also said yes after so many nos.”
Hate to sound like debbie downers on this, but surely they’re now making this sound like they just chose the one man who didn’t turn down the opportunity?
Just a thought, y’all.
Anyway, we’re happy that Chris has been named officially sexy, but Ryan will always be our number one man.
And at least we can be safe in the knowledge that if they ever make a ‘Sexiest Man Of All Eternity’ award, Ryan would win hands DOWN.
