My Vote For PEOPLE Magazine’s Annual Sexiest Man Alive Issue {And Giveaway!}

Update: This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations comment #65, Heidi!

Every Friday, I have a tradition.

Head to the store, grab some groceries for the weekend and a buy the newest issue of PEOPLE Magazine. I sit down in the kitchen after the dinner dishes are done, when the kids are in the bath or hanging with their Dad and read cover to cover. It’s my hour of quiet time to celebrate the end of a busy week. The book reviews are my favorite – it seems that my tastes in books are simliar to those of the book editors for the magazine. Another favorite? The television show reviews.

Ok, ok. And the celebrity gossip. I’ll admit it if you will.

Did you know that it’s almost time for PEOPLE Magazine’s Annual Sexiest Man Alive issue? It comes out this week! Let’s speculate, shall we?

I think we should look at three recent winners. All in the name of research.

1. Bradley Cooper (swoon).

PEOPLE'S Sexiest Man Alive

2. Hugh Jackman.

People's sexiest man alive

3. Johnny Depp

PEOPLE'S Sexiest Man Alive

Who will be this year’s cover?

Assuming this guy couldn’t win (only because he doesn’t quite fit the celebrity requirement):

I think my next three picks would be Paul Walker:

2. Patrick Dempsey (you know, because we’re friends and all):

Patrick Dempsey

Yes. I did have to pull that picture out. 

3. Or Ryan Gosling (we all knew this couldn’t end without a Gosling graphic, right?):

    I like Richard Gere from years past, but I really wish they would pick Russell Crowe or LL Cool J. I like beefier guys.

  2. Katy M says

    Johnny Depp. Hands down. I can’t help it- I grew up loving him!

    Thanks for the fun giveaway!

    Seriously! I can’t make up my mind, but, if I had to choose, Ryan Reynolds- hubba, hubba :) Very easy on the eyes. This year? Hmmm, LOVE me some Hugh Jackman, too :)

  4. says

    It’s gotta be Ryan Gosling this year only because everyone thought it should have been him over Bradley Cooper (except me!)

    I like Ryan Renolyds! ;-)

  5. Kelly says

    Ok, I looked at the People website to find a different guy than one you had above, but I gotta stick with Johnny Depp…I know he’s done some weird movies, but he is awesome. Remember 21 jump street? :) & Thanks for posting the picture of Paul Walker…he has some serious eyes..!

  6. MyPeaceOfFood says

    Ooh, tossup between Bradley Cooper and Patrick Dempsey. They both have that little twinkle in their eyes…so adorable!

  7. Karen Hand says

    Hugh Jackman or Mark Harmon. I could force myself to look at either one of them all day long. Oh dear, can’t forget Richard Gere.

  8. Melinda S says

    having just spent 6 hours watching old Alias episodes with my best daughter and enjoying seeing Bradley Cooper before we was big, I’d go with him. Hugh Jackman is also a top pick because of his versatility – he can do it all, stage, movies, tv.

  9. says

    From the past – Matt Damon … but I am going back to look at them all again, just to be sure.

    Hugh Jackman sure looks good.

    I knew I would see a Ryan Gosling reference as soon as I started reading this post. HEY GIRL


  10. Liberty Boblett says

    I think (from looking at the past covers!) the sexiest is Mark Harmon….He is hot, even if he is getting older! :)

  11. Sue Hull says

    The one I wanted is on the new People I got in the mail today but I won’t spoil the surprise for everyone else.I’d have to say Bradley Cooper. Thank you for the awesome giveaway! :)

  12. Heather B says

    Hugh Jackman is my favorite from recent years. I’m disappointed Daniel Craig didn’t get it this year. He is truly the sexiest man alive!

  13. Wen says

    Hard to choose, but the unshaven look doesn’t feel right. I think Pierce Brosnan and Patrick Swayze nailed the look for the best looking
