Yesterday, we posed a question: Is No Country for Old Men’s Anton Chigurh, the psychokiller played by Javier Bardem, hot… Ramona bob and all? The majority of you agreed that yes, twills and all, he was dangerously good looking, while some of you felt he resembled Brad Garrett.
Well, I am happy to report that the long-esteemed purveyor of all things “hot” and “sexy”, People Magazine, has vote Javier (or “Hahbby”, as I call him) one of 2007’s Sexiest Men of the Year! Here is the blurb that accompanies the above soul-stealing photo:
After seeing that recent shot of him in a leg-locking horizontal clutch with PenÃ©lope Cruz on a beach in the Maldives, who could deny the Spaniard is a sex symbol? Well, he could. “It just makes me laugh,” says Bardem, 38, who’s starring in Love in the Time of Cholera and No Country for Old Men. “I see a guy who looks like he’s been beaten with a baseball bat.” At least Bardem acknowledges that he has a certain seductive intensity. “Once you start to get older, you have to focus and be passionate about life day after day.”
Awww…. he’s like the Spanish Kevin Spacey who probably likes women!
For the record, the Sexiest Man of the Year Award has been handed to Matt Damon, who we’re sure is overjoyed. And while theoretically we think Geoff Manthorn on Ace of Cakes should have taken the prize, we’re glad to see Matt finally get the People Cover recognition he deserves.
