Johnny Depp

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 06:07:04 November 15, 2010 06:07:04

Arguments for:- It’s Johnny Depp. Please don’t make me list all the reasons why. It’s Johnny Depp.- He’s about to open a new film. It’s called The Tourist. - In a popularity contest, Johnny Depp beats almost everyone. And with the 25th SMA anniversary in mind, he is the choice for the democracy. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 05:56:23 November 15, 2010 05:56:23

Arguments for:- It’s been a great year. He is suddenly the most versatile actor in Hollywood: successful at romantic comedies, earning critical acclaim for his indie work in Buried, soon to be The Green Lantern, with a crowd-pleasing appearance at Comic-Con to placate all the geeks, and possessing enough man cred to have studio approval for two projects lined up with both Denzel Washington and Bradley Cooper. Full Story

Will Smith

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 05:49:43 November 15, 2010 05:49:43

Arguments for: - Will is a major, major power player. He is always up for consideration. And he has NEVER been the Sexiest Man Alive, despite having the most impressive box office records of anyone in the business. This is a major oversight. - The Karate Kid was one of the biggest surprise hits of the year. Full Story

Ben Affleck

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 05:43:26 November 15, 2010 05:43:26

Arguments for:- After the original Bennifer and the asskicking to his career, Ben Affleck has been able to successfully rebuild his image and is now a respected director. The Town was well received, he’s now working on a Terrence Malick film. And he’s already eyeing his next feature behind the camera- Much of this image rehabilitation is due to what has supposedly been a stable marriage to Jennifer Garner. Full Story

James Franco

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 05:37:44 November 15, 2010 05:37:44

Arguments for:- He delivers an outstanding performance in 127 Hours and many say he will be nominated for an Oscar- He has been everywhere – on daytime television, on the festival circuit, on talk shows, on SNL, in comedies, able to straddle art house pictures, comedies, and major motion picture releases- He is supposedly a versatile artist, studying writing, directing, sculpture, and enrolled in every creative post graduate program available in New York- He’s beautiful- He is scandal-free Arguments against:- While Franco has certainly made inroads, he is still not mainstream enough- Some people think he’s gay- His artiness borders on annoying. Full Story

Robert Pattinson

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 05:33:10 November 15, 2010 05:33:10

Arguments for: - His prettiness- His hair- Courting the Twilight fanbase: they put their cash money where his face is. It’s an automatic sale. And they are f-cking crazy enough to buy several copies for each person. Arguments against:- Pattinson currently has nothing to promote. With another year to go until the next Twilight film is released, the fever has abated slightly, or perhaps it’s just hiding in a crazy cave until the right time. Full Story

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 05:27:00 November 15, 2010 05:27:00

He will be unveiled on Wednesday. Every year People Magazine crowns the Sexiest Man Alive. Every year the last few years, I’ve handicapped the possibilities, ending with a prediction. This year is particularly significant. It’s the 25th anniversary of the SMA. Which means the Milestone Man has to carry with him a certain gravitas, a stature worthy of such a claim. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

7 more sleeps, can you stand it? Or, if you’re like me and prefer the midnight screenings, only 6 more sleeps. Until what? You know. The review will be posted today. Many of you emailed yesterday about Taylor Swift’s “what” following her performance at the CMAs the other night.  Read Full Intro

Last night you were spotted out with your sister in Soho after taping The Graham Norton Show. Is it me or are you really tan? Maybe it’s the makeup and, well, you do spent a lot of time in LA now. You are in London for promotion for London Boulevard which opens in the UK on November 26th but not in North America until February which must be a bitch for you. Full Story
