With his boyish good looks, a ripped body and comedic talents, Ryan Reynolds has attained the pinnacle of fame -- being named People magazine's sexiest man alive!
The actor is poised to become the next box office hero with his comic book action flick 'Green Lantern,' out next year.
It's obvious the Canadian native is taking the title very seriously, telling People his homeland is "trying to nationalize sexy, sort of like Medicare."
He notes that his much-desired body serves as his security system, saying that he sleeps naked "because if anyone breaks into your house, I can’t think of anything more frightening than a naked 6’2” man coming at you."
Ryan joins an esteemed collection of Hollywood hotties, as evidenced in ET's super-sexy flashback gallery.
The actor's entry into the elite group marks 25 years of People's Sexiest Man Alive. The issue is on stands Friday.
