‘Green Lantern’ Star Ryan Reynolds Named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive

'Now it's going to be, 'Sexiest man, take out the garbage,' actor says of how wife Scarlett Johansson will react to accolade.

It’s a good week to be acting couple Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds. Johansson has been named GQ‘s Babe of the Year and hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the third time. And Reynolds, whose “Green Lantern” trailer premiered on Tuesday, has just nabbed the coveted title of People‘s Sexiest Man Alive.

“My body naturally wants to look like Dick Van Dyke,” the star told People. “When I stop training, I turn into a skin-colored whisper. … You just have to go with the flow.”

But earning the distinction of being 2010′s sexiest man apparently doesn’t have any clout on the home front with wife Johansson. “Now it’s going to be, ‘Sexiest man, take out the garbage.’ That does sound better,” Reynolds said. “The most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers.”

Reynolds joins an elite group of Hollywood hotties who have been named Sexiest, including Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Johnny Depp and Hugh Jackman.

People isn’t just honoring the rugged Canadian in the issue. “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm, “Twilight” hunk Kellan Lutz, one of the Hottest MCs in the Game, Drake , “Glee” star Matthew Morrison, “True Blood” star Joe Manganiello, Justin Timberlake and Jake Gyllenhaal, just to name a few, also made the cut.

Drake was also named one of GQ‘s Men of the Year, along with James Franco, Stephen Colbert and Jeff Bridges.

Kim Kardashian is set to host a special about this year’s group of men on Wednesday night (November 17). “There are so many qualities that make this year’s Sexiest Man Alive sexy,” Kardashian said. “He’s so handsome, so funny. He has the full package.”
