It’s truly baffling to any male-attracted adult that actor Ryan Gosling, 34, deserves to have a trophy with a plaque reading ‘sexiest’ on his mantlepiece.
He’s a man. He’s impossibly attractive. There are sexy feminist memes about him all over the internet. As the protagonist in Crazy Stupid Love yelled in response to his impeccable abs: “Are they photoshopped or something?”
The man is sex personified. But alas, not THE sexiest man alive according to People magazine.
And in the last few years many fans have complained about this severe and repeated oversight by the Official Department of Men’s Sexiness.
This year Chris Hemsworth was given the annual award by People magazine. Sexy to be sure but even our nationalistic pride doesn’t blind us to the fact his sexiness has nothing on Ryan Gosling’s.
Today, the reason why Gosling has never received the sexy honour has been revealed. He hasn’t been dissed. He hasn’t been rejected. He hasn’t been overlooked. In fact People magazine have repeatedly tried to bestow the honour upon him but have had their plans foiled.
Why? Because Ryan doesn’t want it.
