Former Sexiest Man Alive winners Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper have been talking about the title and this year’s winner Channing Tatum. Bradley has spoken about handing over the title to Channing, while Ben has claimed that he feels Tatum is a worthy winner.
Affleck explained to Access Hollywood, “I think Channing is [deserving], and always has been. He’s a very good guy and an extremely, extremely sexy man. I mean, what else can you say? Have you seen Magic Mike? I think that said it all!”
Meanwhile Bradley Cooper told Today, “I think it was instituted back with [George] Clooney, but there's a whole decompression you go through. I get whisked away to somewhere in Wisconsin, and they talk me down for about a week… I think Matt Damon runs it now.”
Past winners of the Sexiest Man Alive title include Ryan Reynolds, Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, George Clooney, Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Damon and Jude Law. There was recently some discontent among Ryan Gosling fans, who felt that he was a more deserving winner that Channing Tatum.
