It’s official: Jude Law is the ‘sexiest man alive’!

Jude and Gwyneth in The Talented Mr Ripley
Jude Law has won another coveted title but not for his acting this time. The British screen star happens to be one of Hollywood’s hottest properties at the moment and now according to People magazine he is also the Sexiest Man Alive! Not bad for a pommy git with 3 kids and a nasty divorce behind him. The 31-year-old actor earned the coveted title because of his “supernatural good looks, supersize talent and his reputation as an all-around nice guy,” People said. “He’s the most beautiful man who ever walked the Earth ? an absolutely perfect oil painting,” said Australian actress Naomi Watts, his co-star in the comedy I Heart Huckabees. Awwk shucks, Naomi don?t go overboard about him! Gwynnie Paltrow said: “He’s the most charming man you could ever hope to come across.” He is in good company with previous winners being Mel Gibson, Sean Connery, Brad Pitt and George Clooney in recent times.

Coaching to be sexy – Matt Damon
The rest of the field
Jude can safely brag that he is the 18th man to claim the sexist hunk on the face of the Earth title since People magazine began bestowing the honour in 1985. Other “sexiest men” have included James Bond star Pierce Brosnan, Ben Affleck, Denzel Washington and the late political JFK Jr. The rest of the gorgeous field this year had the brat pack of usual suspects like Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Johnny Depp as well as British Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom, hip-hop singer Usher, Irish bad boy star Colin Farrell and veteran actor Bruce Willis. Following them are Matt LeBlanc, and Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal, who stars in ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’ and wowed us all at the Oscars last year in his tuxedo. There are rumours abounding that Matt Damon is hanging to become the sexiest man, and Brad Pitt has secretly agreed to coach him. Like to see the outcome of that!

Happy in love, Naomi
Lastest Pop star and supermodel duo
R&B star Usher and supermodel Naomi Campbell have gone public with their relationship at the MTV Europe Awards ? where they were all ?loved up?. The celebrity couple arrived arm-in-arm at the glittering bash and they looked very much a superstar item at swanky pre-show and post-show parties. Eloquent as always supermodel Naomi Campbell said “I’m having an amazing time, I love Italy. But I’m trying not to eat too much because it makes me too sleepy,” she told the Daily Mirror. Who says supermodels eat anyway? Don?t they just pout around smoking with bottles of water at fashion shows?
