The Oscars 2013 may be over, but the hype lives on, thanks to Jennifer Lawrence who not only fell as she climbed up the stairs to accept her Academy Award, but the shocking reaction Adele gave when she found out she had won Best Original Song for Skyfall. It was a pretty crazy night with some very deserving people snacking up the awards for their hard work — Ben Affleck, especially!
Last night was the Critics Choice Movie Awards and it was a nice change of pace from the stuffier awards shows that dominate the season. Host KTLA’s Sam Rubin was hilarious and he cracked jokes comfortably with the stars. I was pleasantly surprised that most of the nominated and winning stars were there – the exceptions being Daniel Craig and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Ben Affleck has congratulated Channing Tatum for being titled ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ by People magazine. The actor, who held the title back in 2002, says that Tatum deserves it, seeing that he is a good guy and an extremely “sexy man”. Ben tells Access Hollywood: “I think [Channing] is [deserving], and always has been,” the Argo star explained. “He’s a very good guy and an extremely, extremely sexy man.”
Backing up his point as to why he thinks Channing was crowned this year’s sexiest male, Ben explained: “I mean, what else can you say? Have you seen Magic Mike? I think that said it all!” When asked if the actor finds himself sexy in any way, he responded saying: “I never really like pictures of myself,” he declared. “You know, at least it’s not horribly embarrassing, which is what I’m always worried about.”
Channing’s wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum sat down for an interview with People, where she explained how she found out about Tatum’s triumph — it wasn’t very pleasant. “Our dogs were being skunked every other night for about two months straight, so this was a very normal occurrence, to be kneeling in front of the bathtub washing our dogs,” the actress told People.
“But he was like, ‘Oh, by the way, I was named People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’.” She added: “Is that not the strangest way to tell me this news?” I’m not quite sure why the skunk smell made him think about it,” she said. “Maybe it was the fact that it was the last thing something the Sexiest Man Alive would be doing. But I don’t know. Maybe it was the sexy skunk musk that made him think of it.”
Previous winners include Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise
