Ryan Reynolds Named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive”. Ryan Reynolds joins the ranks of Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Johnny Depp as he’s named this year’s Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. The 34-year-old actor had been previously honored by the magazine in 2009 and 2008, but this year is the first time the star, who suits up for “The Green Lantern” next year, has taken the title and the cover. “The most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers,” Reynolds joked to People magazine. It also didn’t hurt that Reynolds has been showing off his abs for years in films like “The Proposal,” “The Amityville Horror,” and “Blade: Trinity.” If that’s not enough, he’s also covered many a Men’s Health magazine. “My body naturally wants to look like Dick Van Dyke,” he jokes. “When I stop training, I turn into a skin-colored whisper.” He also expects home life with his wife of two years, actress Scarlett Johansson, to change. “Now it’s going to be, ‘Sexiest man, take out the garbage.’ That does sound better,” he said. Also scoring Sexiest Man honors this year are Jon Hamm, Jon Bon Jovi, Joe Manganiello of “True Blood,” and “Twilight” star Kellan Lutz.
