Idris Elba, of salt-and-pepper beard and Thor fame, was just selected by People as the magazine’s 2018 “Sexiest Man Alive.” The British actor, who recently shut down nearly a decade of rumors that he would take the lead role in the next James Bond film, is the 33rd man to hold the prestigious title.

Elba is also only the third non-white person to land a place on the list, which has been maintained since (a pre-disgaced) Mel Gibson was selected in 1985. He joins black actor Denzel Washington (1996) and Samoan-American actor and wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (2016), in a list that is otherwise full of many white men.

In fact, finding famous and attractive non-white men has proved so trying for People that it has been forced, time and time again, to refer back to its slim repertoire of white guys. Indeed, actors Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Richard Gere, and (a pre-disgraced) Johnny Depp have been selected as the World’s Sexiest twice each. (Depp, for his part, has made vague claims of Native American ancestry, but has not publicly confirmed his racial background via DNA test.) You can see all of the winners’ covers here, and here is the full list of winners:

November 15, 2016 Dwayne Johnson 44
November 27, 2017 Blake Shelton 41
November 6, 2018 Idris Elba 46

People is also known for its yearly special issue naming the “World’s Most Beautiful,” which includes men and women and three non-white people (Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Lupita Nyong’o).

Although beauty—or degree of sexiness in this case—is indeed in the eye of the beholder, it seems that People, with its 2016 selection of Johnson and now Elba, is taking a cue from the times. The world has been diverse, but many organizations and publications have only recently gotten better at recognizing that diversity. So fingers crossed we’ll see more beautiful non-white men on People’s venerated list in the future. That is if, they don’t double up on 2017 winner Blake Shelton.

The 10 sexiest men of 2019: From Keanu Reeves to Michael B Jordan and more

John Legend may have taken home the trophy for the sexiest man alive for the year, but it would be absolute foolishness to think he’s the only one. Feast your eyes on the 10 hottest men of the year:

1. Dwayne Johnson

If he’s not on a hottest men list, is that really a legitimate list? At 47 years old, the Rock is still just as hot as he used to be a decade ago – ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ is proof of that. His shoulders, abs of steel and biceps may be made of dreams, what really puts a seal of approval on this thirst trap is his ever broody, sincere eyes that just seem to want to save you.

2. Keanu Reeves

He goes through a gazillion men for revenge because they killed his dog – if that isn’t the perfect man, what is, really? ‘John Wick 3′ was a testament to Keanu Reeves’ ever-present, timeless sexiness that remains unparalleled. If you’re into the whole Keanu-is-a-vampire theory, we aren’t surprised. With that poise, features that look like they’re from a Renaissance painting and that super-secretive life, he might as well be.

3. Anthony Porowski

He’s not the big burly type, but there is no denying that Anthony Porowski is super sexy. The ‘Queer Eye’ food expert has garnered too many thirsty followers over the years for good reason. He can cook amazing meals, has deep sincere eyes that stare into your soul, the perfect body if there is such a thing and has a super healthy obsession with Corgis.

4. Jason Momoa

Be it his primal sex appeal or the fact that he’s such a family man, Jason Mamoa’s hotness comes from his super wild side. He’s like the guy you dream of meeting and don’t really mind if it ends up breaking your heart. In ‘See’, Mamoa is quite like Khal Drogo, his iconic character from ‘Game of Thrones’, protector of the weak and the warrior who doesn’t let his family down.

5. Idris Elba

Idris Elba can play Luther and manage to be the “black Superman” while also finding time to be a real-life disc jockey, release EPs and be a kickboxer with a documentary to his name. He should be added as the official synonym of aging well.

6. Michael B Jordan

Apart from delivering what looks like an Oscar-worthy performance in ‘Just Mercy’ Michael B Jordan is also totally single and excruciatingly gorgeous. He looks damn good in a suit and although this is very different from the robber prince we saw in ‘Black Panther’, the power in his performance is palpable.

7. Brad Pitt

Pitt came from the yesteryears to delivery his classic careless bad boy avatar in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ and then went on to become the strong-jawed, man-on-a-mission space explorer in ‘Ad Astra’. Truly timeless, the handsomely chiseled face of Brad Pitt was truly missed.

8. Jon Bernthal

He’s ‘The Punisher’, enough said. The fierce Jon Bernthal has a lot to adore, apart from looking great even when there’s blood dripping down his very, very firm torso. His self proclaimed battered nose, coy smile and the ability to look astonishingly hot in everything from a suit to zombieland casual (aka ‘The Walking Dead’) and being super humble about it, makes him all the hotter.

9. Chadwick Boseman

How many times has Gwenyth Paltrow fangirled over people? Well, Chadwick Boseman had the ultimate honor and for good reason. There’s just something so disarming about his innocent boyish smile and his effortlessly pleasant laugh. Not to forget the guns.

10. Henry Cavill

The OG man in the sky, he goes absolutely fantasy in Netflix’s ‘Witcher’ and Ooh Lalala is he sexy! Silver hair isn’t just Khaleesi’s thing apparently. Plus, the leather pants.

John Legend Is PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive 2019: ‘I’m Excited but a Little Scared at the Same Time’

Introducing … the EGOTSMA.

John Legend — a man so talented he became one of only 15 stars to achieve EGOT status last year — is making history yet again: the 40-year-old singer has now been crowned PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive.

After taking home his first Grammy in 2006 with his debut album Get Lifted, the star began a steady ascension to superstardom while using his voice for good. Unabashedly in love with his wife Chrissy Teigen and a doting father to their kids, 3½-year-old daughter Luna and 18-month-old son Miles, Legend has become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars while remaining as down-to-earth as ever.

So it’s no surprise that the Voice coach, whose deluxe edition of A Legendary Christmas is available now, had a mix of emotions when he first heard about his latest title.

“I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure,” the entertainer tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!”

Legend is PEOPLE’s 34th Sexiest Man Alive, joining a long list of Hollywood’s hottest, starting with a then-29-year-old Mel Gibson in 1985.

With a buttery voice and unparalleled musical skills, the star — who entered the University of Pennsylvania at just 16 years old — says his mother, Phyllis, a seamstress, was his first and biggest fan.

“Whenever we had opportunities to sing in church or in school, my mom would suggest that I do it,” he says. “She always encouraged me.”

But most importantly, Legend says his parents, including his dad Ronald, a factory worker, taught him to remain humble and kind.

“My father taught me about character. He taught us by example. He always conducted himself with such grace and dignity,” he says. “My parents always taught me that if you’re going to succeed in life, part of success is having humility. It’s a good way to live life, treating other people the way you want to be treated.”

And now with his gorgeous family and an endless list of accolades, the star is happier — and more confident — than ever.

“I’m so proud that I have a wife and two kids I’m so in love with and so connected to. I’m also so proud of my career,” he says. “I love writing songs and performing on stage. I get a lot of joy from it and give a lot of joy to other people. I’m pretty at ease with myself now!”

Chris Hemsworth Named People’s Sexiest Man Alive

People

Here’s some happy hump day news: People has officially bestowed its title of the “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2014 upon Australian-born actor Chris Hemsworth.

Hemsworth, who got his start acting in Australian soap operas, rose to A-list status after his first Hollywood appearance in Star Trek in 2009. Since then, he’s made a name for himself playing muscly action heroes in blockbusters like Thor, The Avengers, Snow White and the Huntsman, and the upcoming Blackhat. (For more eye candy, check out the Top 20 Memorable Shirtless Male Movie Moments!)

The 31-year-old stands tall at an impressive 6 feet, 3 1/2 inches, and 195 pounds-with eight percent body fat. But the actor has revealed he wasn’t always so ripped. In 2011, Hemsworth gained 20 pounds of muscle to play Thor. “It wasn’t until Thor that I started lifting weights,” he told People. (Check out the Herculean workout that gave him the Avenger’s physique.) But he still takes his fitness seriously. “Genetically, I don’t put on weight easily,” he says. “I like running, surfing or boxing, and I did Muay Thai for a long time. If I have a goal, I’m really good about what I eat-protein, veggies, clean food and restricted carbohydrates. Cheat days are pizza, hamburgers, beer, sugary things. Everything I’m not allowed to have!”

Unfortunately, the hot Aussie isn’t an eligible bachelor. Hemsworth wed Spanish model Elsa Pataky, 38, in 2010, and they have three kids at home down under. When People asked what he thinks is sexiest, he answered without pause: “My wife.” (Which is pretty sexy in itself!) And he isn’t the only hunky Hemsworth-his two handsome brothers, Liam, 24, and Luke, 33, are fellow actors. In fact, Chris came in at No. 7 in Glamour’s list of “50 Sexiest Men” in 2013, behind his younger brother Liam. But clearly age isn’t a factor: Even though Hemsworth tells People he thinks he hit his peak a few years ago, the hot photos below (and the thoughts of every woman in America) clearly prove him wrong.

Other sexy stars that made it on this year’s list include fellow action star Chris Pratt, Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan, country crooner Blake Shelton, British actor Idris Elba, the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper, and talkshow host Michael Strahan, among others.

Rating 100 attractive male celebrities from ‘somewhat sexy’ to ‘sexiest’ is a tough, thankless job, but someone’s got to do it. Though we’d happily spend a week counting the results to determine who is the sexiest of all, Glamour Magazine has done the hard work for us and *drumroll please* the list has just gone live. With over 340,000 votes cast by the British public, it has been decided that our very own Aidan Turner is the undisputed sexiest man of the year, outdoing even Jamie Dornan (who is also Irish, and incredibly nice to look at).

From Lenny Abrahamson’s cleaning up across awards season to Saoirse Ronan and Michael Fassbender’s Oscar nods, and now Turner’s aesthetic recognition, it’s a bloody good year for the Irish. Not so much for the pronunciation of Irish names (no, Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s not Dumball Gleeson) but still, we’re going to focus on the positives.

The attractive hobbit and Poldark actor was followed up by Mr Dornan, who came in at number 2, no surprises there, while a regular feature on these sexiest men lists, Tom Hiddleston ranked in at number 3. On the other end of the spectrum, we have Javier Bardem ranking at number 100 who, correct us if we’re wrong, is far far sexier than Zayn Malik, who sits comfortably at number 5. And what do we make of Justin Theroux’s ranking at number 96? Something has gone terribly wrong here. What’s even more preposterous is the news that Joe Manganiello was ranked at number 80. Did the voters not see Magic Mike XXL? And, not to be super mean and judgmental, but on no planet should Josh Hutcherson of The Hunger Games fame be flanked by Ryan Reynolds (number 77. Again, ludicrous). Check out the full list over on Glamour.com where newcomers to the list, including Prince Harry, are featured.

Dornan wins ‘sexiest man’ accolade

Jamie Dornan has topped a list of sexiest men

February 4 2015 0:06 AM

Jamie Dornan and Benedict Cumberbatch have topped a list of the world’s sexiest men.

Fifty Shades Of Grey and The Fall star Jamie, who won fans as a model before gaining success as an actor, took first place in Glamour magazine’s annual poll.

The Imitation Game star Benedict is second, followed by fellow British actor Tom Hiddleston.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson fell two places to fourth, while One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles dropped one position to seventh in the annual list.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, who has “consciously uncoupled” from Gwyneth Paltrow, makes it into the list for the first time, in 27th place.

Other newcomers include former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens (32), Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton (33) and Hollywood star James McAvoy (40).

Glamour’s Sexiest Men – voted for by 80,000 readers – appears in the March 2015 issue.
