Hugh Jackman is People's Sexiest Man Alive!



Hugh Jackman, the 40-year-old Aussie actor who has endeared himself to women and comic book fanboys alike, has been named People's Sexiest Man Alive! (need that exclamation point), the magazine revealed Tuesday.

Tbdhughjackman112008_2 You may remember Jackman as the guy who starred in Swordfish and saw Halle Berry topless, or as a pretty damn good Wolverine in the X-Men movies. Or, if you're Mrs. Juice, you've seen him in the cornball Meg Ryan opus Kate and Leopold, as a sexy time-travelling Brit, or in the trailers for Australia as a sexy Outback drover. Wow, what took them so long to make this decision?

People's description says it best:

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.

Sorry, Matt Damon, but "Body of Doom" wins over some silly secret agent stuff. And we can't help but notice Brad Pitt manages to make it on the cover again. Including Zac Efron brings to mind Cookie Monster's "one of these is not like the other things" song.
