I have a suggestion for People magazine: the Sexiest Man Alive issue should be renamed to Hottest Man Alive. That seems a little more accurate, given the fact that it's really about the (Usually White) Man Whose Box Office Draw is Heating Up, and maybe we'd be less likely to say things like, Channing Tatum? Sexy, okay, but sexiest man alive? BRING US THE GOSLING AND BRING HIM NOW.
I don't dislike Channing Tatum, but he'd never be my personal pick for sexiest man. That said, as soon as I read about how he broke the news about the People honor to his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, his Sexy Points increased for me by about 1,000.
It's almost enough to make me forgive him for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. ALMOST.
