Hugh Jackman Named The ‘Sexiest Man Alive’


People magazine has released it’s annual pick for Sexiest Man Alive and they have chosen Aussie hunk Hugh Jackman as the sexiest … and I must concur. Each year, People magazine gathers a list of hawt male celebs for their time-honored Sexiest list (which is usually a very nice list) but some years bestows the honor of Sexiest Man Alive on a clichéd pick (Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Brad Pitt again, etc.). This year, I think People magazine absolutely made the right choice in picking Hugh Jackman:

He’s a triple threat: a star who can sing, dance and wield a weapon. At 6 ft. 2 in., all scruff and biceps, Hugh Jackman looms large in the epic Australia, which he says kept him “dirty 95 percent of the time” and left people stammering, “Oh … my … God,” according to costar Nicole Kidman, who adds, “Women’s jaws drop when Hugh walks into a room.” Jackman’s wife of 12 years, Deborra-Lee Furness, calls his perfect form “the Body of Doom – but I like what’s inside”: a romantic who sings ballads at home and makes pancakes for Oscar, 8, and Ava, 3. A hard body with a soft center.

In his interview with People magazine, Hugh confessed that he used to be self-conscious about his “chicken legs” and reveals that “lately” he is most proud of his smile and his pecs. OMG. I SO concur ;) “Sexy” is the perfect way to describe Hugh Jackman. As y’all know, I happily feature Hugh as much as I can (as recently as Monday) because the man is basically sex on legs. Of all the Sexiest men who made the list this year, I can’t think of anyone more deserving of the top spot. But, there are other Sexy men on the list. After the jump, check out some of the other dudes who made the list this year — you’ll find that almost all of them are guys who have been heavily featured right here on the blog …

Except for Jon Hamm (of AMC’s Mad Men), each of these guys (Robert Buckley, Michael Phelps, David Beckham, Daniel Craig, Ed Westwick and Robert Pattinson) has been featured right here on the blog for his sexiness so I’m glad to see that People magazine is in sync with, well, me! As I said, some years I’m not all that interested in the list because the picks feel kinda boring (no offense, Brad Pitt) but this year it really looks like the mag got it right. Click HERE to see who else made the list and make sure to pick up this week’s copy of People magazine to see the full list of sexy men who made the list. Do y’all agree that Hugh Jackman is the Sexiest Man Alive? If not, who’d you put on the cover?


  • Well, DUH. Any man who can carry a comic-book movie *and* win a Tony Award is automatically sexy in my book – and now let’s address how he looks… ;-)

  • Teri

    HOT HOTTIE HOT!!! Well deserving of this honor!

  • Libby

    Abso-f’n-lutely. And you should start featuring Jon Hamm more. Mad Men is probably one of the best, if not THE best, show on tv. (Dexter being a close second.)

  • Mr. Gyllenhaal

    I totally agree. Now if only we can somehow get him to do EQUUS( the harry potter play, spelt totally wrong) then I would be a happy man:)!!

  • nadiaknow

    Yes, Hugh Jackman deserves this… truly sexy.
    Libby, I haven’t seen Man Men yet but plan to just to see Jon Hamm *swoon*

  • LOL, Mr. G — Equus is spelled correctly :) And, sorry, Hugh is too old to play the part of Alan Strang (who is an adolescent)

  • Libby

    Nadiaknow – you won’t regret it. Amazing show. Jon Hamm is incredible.

  • Ana

    I totally agree 100%. He is one sexy mofo.

  • Hugh looks good. Phelps and Pattinson? Be still, my heart. Oh man. Swimming is an awesome sport.

    And btw, Trent, have you heard R.Patz on the Twilight soundtrack? Him singing alone defrosted my windshield this morning!! :D

  • ju-ju bean

    Barf = Phelps.

    Falls over and dies = Jackman.

  • mdu

    totally agree! don’t know why he hasn’t been chosen before?? a family man, singer, dancer, actor; he’s a quadruple threat!

  • Todd

    WOW! About time, People should hire me cause I coulda told them about Hugh a long long time ago. Can’t wait to see Australia, Congrats Mr. Jackman, man of my dreams. I agree about Phelps ju-ju, good call. Well also in love with Robert (both) and David. People speaks for me =)

  • I agree with most of the list but bummer! Milo is not on the top 10 so I’m a bit disappointed…

  • Meredith

    No love for Blair Underwood??? Come on he’s a hottie for sure and needs to be represented.

  • Claire

    My vote goes to Pharrell Williams…Always!(Lol)

  • Blair Underwood is a major hottie, I loved him on ‘In Treatment’ this year … I had to do some pruning for the blog tho, People picked a lot of hot guys :)

  • Kelly

    Trent, you really should feature Jon Hamm on the blog to round out the picks. What a hottie!

  • Steph

    Phelps is a great swimmer, but good looking he is not… will he stop prancing around like he is God’s gift to women PLEASE! He’s attitude makes him even less attractive…
    Other then him- Love the list!

  • annettemarie.!

    oh my. hugh’s yummy :)
    there’s a signed picture of him in my hallway…..niiice
    my gosh robert buckley’s cute. ahha, and daniel craig looks like a lion cub. but a perplexed and killer cub, of course.

  • kim

    holy mother of hotness, those are some great pictures. i am definitely a fan of this year’s list.

  • Darlea

    I’m so glad to see Ed Westwick on there. He is all sorts of O.M.F.G hotness. Everyone seems to love Chase Crawford, but Ed Westwick/Chuck Bass is what keeps me coming back for more Gossip Girl every week. I’m not into “pretty” boys.

  • Lindsey

    I hope Shia makes the list….hes sexy

  • Tanya

    It took a second for me to warm up to the idea, but you know what, he totally IS the sexiest man alive both physically, and in the way he lives his life. Seems like a good dad, good hubbie and an all around good guy.

    I don´t know if he is the sexiest man alive.. there´s tons of them.. but he sure looks super fine to me!! I love me some wolverine… incredibly hot.
    Michael Phelps? Really? There´s more sexiness in my kitchen cloth. Deffo agree on Daniel Craig, Becks and Kirby ohhh kirby! I loved Blair Underwood in SATC, one fine piece of meat. Where´s Jonathan Rhys Meyers?? He is the definition of sexy.. those eyes, that mouth…”le sigh”

  • Kim

    What about Clive Owen??!!!

  • mel

    ed westwick = eew no
    michael phelps = sure if you like butthisfaces with irregularly long torsos

    david beckham’s pretty cliche because i’m not exactly sure what he did this year to make him even more special.

    daniel craig i agree with.. quantum of solace!

    i agree with kim, where is clive owen?
    and hugh jackman is definitely very hot. it’s just weird to me that he was chosen this year and not say.. any of the xmen years??

  • tanya

    I’ll join the chorus, we need more Jon Hamm on this site! He’s beautiful and is such an incredible talent. So glad to see Hugh get some recognition for his hotness. Could have told y’all about that a long time ago!

  • JeniLee

    mmm James Lafferty or Ryan Phillippe please :)

  • L

    ew michael phelps

  • Rad

    I couldn’t think of a more perfect person. He should’ve been on looooooooong ago!

  • Elli

    YES to Hugh Jackman.

    Nice to see lots of Brits. Yay!

  • La Princesa

    All I can say is………….ABOUT DAMN TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kara

    omg…..Robert Pattinson. Seriously, his singing is what finally got me to love him!
    And Hugh Jackman is pretty darn attractive, too. :)

  • Rolltideguy77

    I love that almost all of the sexiest men featured are over the age of 30. Take that young ones!

  • moonsovermyhammy

  • WOW….

    Hot man.

    Hot husband.

  • MJ

    TRENT!!! How can Alexander Skarsgard not be featured in the hottest men alive?!! And he’s NEVER been featured in your blog no? that man with long hair in TRUEBLOOD is practically sex on sticks! ABSO-EFFING-LUTELY HAWTTTTT…….
    So many of us Trueblood fans are such fanatics of that fanged man… i do wish you would realised he’s a magnet for both sexes…. woooooooo

  • MJ

    and for christ, he’s been Sweden’s sexiest man for 5 times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! show more of him….

  • Arnold Layne.

    Yay Robert Pattinson! Although he’s like the coolet guy ever I totally agree with Hugh Jackman being named ‘Sexiest Man Alive’. The man deserves it & he’s an Aussie so I’m loving the home-grown love.
