The Sexiest Man Alive Curse

No, Channing Tatum is nowhere near the Sexiest Man anywhere. If you want muscles, there’s Joe Manganiello. If you want someone in a stable relationship, obviously there’s Andrew Garfield. If you want someone who seems kind of dumb, there’s infinite actors and several musicians, most athletes… And the list goes on from there.

But I’m always happy when another November comes around and all of my boyfriends (or husband prospects) are passed over for the title. It might seem like an honor, but in reality, it’s more of a curse. Last year, I could not have been prouder of Ryan Gosling for (allegedly) turning it down when he was offered. Honestly, when’s the last time something amazing happened to the “Sexiest Man Alive” in the year after the magazine came out?

Johnny Depp, 2003/2009

As far as I’m concerned, his whole life is becoming a fucking parabolic decline into THIS.

Congratulations, PEOPLE. You’ve officially jinxed Channing Tatum.
