Matt Damon is People's Sexiest Man Alive

14

November

Damon1 George Clooney's reign of sexy tyranny is over. Matt Damon is People's newest Sexiest Man Alive, the mag announced Tuesday. Damon beat out such sexyweights as Brad Pitt, Patrick Dempsey, Adrian Grenier, Javier Bardem and Justin Timberlake for the title. "You gave an aging suburban dad the ego boost of a lifetime," Damon told People in a letter. (He writes letters! How sexy!) It's been a good year already for Damon, what with the megahit The Bourne Ultimatum and a declaration in August that he was, according to the numbers, Hollywood's most bankable movie star. Let's take a look at some of Matty's finest work, shall we?

Here's Damon geting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in July:
