Ten Years of The Sexiest Men
Sexiest Man 2010- Ryan Reynolds
Nothing gives me more pleasure...
than to see Ryan Reynolds take the number one spot on the 2010 People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive honor. Sense of humor trumps in the sexy category. I've had a secret crush on him since he played Van Wilder. I constantly thought to myself why couldn't I have met a funny guy like that in college? It wasn't until 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' movie that I truly knew me and about a billion other women now thought of Ryan as a sex symbol. His six-pack in that movie was ridiculous.
Let me leave you with a few Van Wilder wisdoms: "I've learned that you can't treat every situation as a life-and-death matter because you'll die a lot of times."
"All you need is scented candles, massage oil, and Barry White".
"Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere".
Sexiest Man 2009- Johnny Depp
Swooning and Swashbuckling
Johnny Depp has been in the spotlight for as many years as far back when I was little girl who watched him on the TV show '21 Jumpstreet'. Although, he is one of those that has gotten better with age and his debut as Jack Sparrow in 'Pirates of the Carribean' didn't hurt. I wouldn't mind being stuck on a deserted island with either Johnny himself or his pirate character. He's proven a unique style, humility, and no fear of what others think of him can be sexy. Johnny Depp is truly a gifted actor and his niche is entertaining children and the ladies.
Jack Sparrow "Me, I'm dishonest. And a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly, it's the honest ones you want to watch out for. Because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly…stupid. Savvy?"
Sexiest Man 2008- Hugh Jackman
I'd follow him to Australia or Jupiter
People voted Hugh Jackman as Sexiest Man Alive in 2008 and for obvious reasons- accent, six-pack, dangerous hero movie roles. Hugh Jackman somehow portrays a soft sensual man with rugged manly characteristics all wrapped into one undeniably easy-on-the-eyes package. Favorite movie roles: 'X-Men' movies and 'Australia'.
Sexiest Man 2007- Matt Damon
Like homemade apple pie
Matt Damon is the sweet guy from next door. You almost don't realize how sexy he is because his cute dimples and boyish smile sometimes masks that. He's a charming and talented actor and director, especially when I first saw him in 'Good Will Hunting', then 'Bourne Identity'.
Will Hunting "I'm holdin' out for somethin' better. I figure fuck it, while I'm at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president."
Sexiest Man 2006- George Clooney
America's favorite bachelor
George Clooney is the epitome of America's heart throb. From the TV show 'ER' to his role on the 'Oceans' movie series, he's made more than a few hearts flutter.
Sexiest Man 2005- Matthew McConaughey
Going down south
I'd be attracted to Matthew McConaughey even if I never saw him and only heard that smooth as silk southern accent. Of course his numerous romantic comedies and dramas he's appeared in gives him an easy title of one of the sexiest men on the big screen. Movies like 'A Time To Kill', 'How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days', 'Wedding Planner', and 'Failure To Launch' enhance his natural southern charm with an air of cocky confidence.
Sexiest Man 2004- Jude Law
English bad boy
Jude Law is not to be taken at face value. He has many attributes hidden under his English smirk. He's had a topsy turvy personal life and seems to be a bit more slippery for women to nail down than what he portrays in some of his on-screen devoted lover roles like Grahm in 'The Holiday'.
Sexiest Man 2003- Johnny Depp
Yes, Johnny Depp has nabbed the spotlight on more than just the big screen. He is a 2-time winner of the People's Sexiest Man Alive. But we don't mind looking at his sexy mug just one more time.
Sexiest Man 2002- Ben Affleck
Ben_ _ _ _ (Insert last few letters of your name)
Remember the "Bennifer" phenomenon? Ben has had some steamy off screen loves like Jennifer Lopez which coined the popular blended name "Bennifer". Other girls to add to his list are Gweneth Paltrow and his current wife, Jennifer Gardner. What makes him sexy is his appearing to be a loving dedicated father to his girls- it's very endearing. I think the ladies started paying attention to his sensual qualities when 'Armageddon' where he played a love interest to the very sexy Liv Tyler.
Sexiest Man 2001- Pierce Brosnan
It's Bond, James Bond
Pierce Brosnan has a wee bit of Irish in him and a whole bunch of sexy. He's played humorous roles and serious roles, but we'll never forget his James Bond roles. Very sexy indeed.
PREDICTED Sexiest Man 2011- Leonardo DiCaprio
A boy becomes a man
Leonardo has captured his audiences for years with his boyish grins and now his more dramatic and serious roles in 'Blood Diamond', 'The Departed' (one of my faves), and the recent 'Inception'. We've watched him turn into a man literally on screen. He's got my vote, and mark my words, sexiest man for 2011.

The first lesson my mom taught me was to be different. It wasn't a hard task. I was always a foot taller than my peers- being different was my assigned place in the world, not a cute lesson or an after school...
