Sexiest doormat alive

Okay so Ryan Reynolds was just crowned People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for 2010. What. The Fuck. If they wee trying to be atypical I think Seth Rogen would have been a more worthy winner.

The award is almost always a Hollywood hearthrob, and is usually in tune with the world's current benchmark of male attractiveness. Mel Gibson claimed the first Sexiest Man Alive title in his hey day of 1985, and the only two-time recipients are this timeless, predictable, yet irresistible trio:

But Ryan Reynolds, really? I mean come ON.

The star of many a mediocre film (Van Wilder, The Proposal), RyRey is the most mediocre brand of hottie out there. He has abs, great teeth and everything else that 30-something office folk would swoon over, but is he truly sexy?

There is simply no fire in his eyes, nothing about him which would make me want to forget I had boyfriend (if I had one) and jump his bones. I guess he seems like a pretty swell guy, but who aspires to bang the nice guy?

I must have missed the moment Ryan Reynolds became a sex symbol coz I was too busy drooling over these guys...

 James Franco in Milk.

James Franco not in Milk. James Franco anywhere except for in that awfully air-brushed Gucci ad.


 Tru Blood's Swedish superbabe Alexander SkarsgĂ„rd.

French New Wave actor Jean-Paul Belmondo (then not now). He is technically still alive.

Male model Santiago Peralta.

Gossip Girl's Machiavellian prince, Ed Westwood.

Japanese soccer player Hidetoshi Nakata.

That hottie from the new Jean-Paul Gaultier campaign.

And lastly, a classic hearthrob: Leo.
