Lainey Posted by Lainey

Arguments for: Always in contention. For many women, he is still the sexiest ideal. Even with that f-cking beard. The father factor. Brad is a doting dad. This gets ‘em moist. Inglourious Basterds did well. Some say it’s still hanging around, lingering on the edges of Oscar consideration, especially now that the Academy has opened up Best Picture to 10 slots. Full Story

Arguments for: Will is popular. Very, very popular Will is charming. Very, very charming. Will has a huge box office. Will wins almost all the time. Will is happily married, he’s understood to be faithful, and he is a devoted father. It’s time for a non-white SMA. And he’s one of the few black actors who has a solid fan base across cultures and colours and… Will has never been named the Sexiest Man Alive. Full Story
