Earlier today, I received an email from the fine people at Gentlemen’s Quarterly magazine regarding their selections for the annual “Men of the Year” feature, or however they refer to it. Ben Affleck was named Director of the Year for Argo, and you can tell it’s a distinguishing honor because he has a sprinkle of salt in his pepper. And singer Rihanna was named Obsession of the Year, and I don’t know what that means, because I feel like she needs a vacation.
But the big winner was our favorite rec center savior, Channing Tatum, who was named Movie Star of the Year, and nobody can deny how much he absolutely deserves that honor. His films The Vow, 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike each grossed more than $100 million, and his presence (or lack thereof) managed to derail the summer release of Paramount’s blockbuster, GI Joe: Retaliation, because his fans were irate that his character Duke was being killed off.
So does the good news stop there? HELL NAW. According to Gossip Cop, our beloved C-Tates will bring home his greatest honor yet when People Magazine will reportedly announce tomorrow that he is the 2012 Sexiest Man Alive. Respek.
