Best of 2012: Sexiest Men of 2012
Sexiest Men of 2012
Dancing With the Stars got an extra dose of hotness thanks to Cuban telenovela star William Levy. We're still grateful for his partner Cheryl Burke, who made sure he was shirtless during many of their routines—together they landed in third place for the 14th season of the hit ABC show.
The White Collar star showed off his sexier side this year by trading in his suits for man thongs as a star in the hit film Magic Mike.
The 26-year-old Brit has grown up before our eyes, scrapping his mussed-up hair for a more proper look recently, thanks in some part to his never-ending parade of designer suits (like Gucci, Gucci, and more Gucci). This year, he headlined his own flick, Cosmopolis, as well as marked the triumphant end of The Twilight Saga, with Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Even though it's over, we'll always be on Team Edward!
Craig, the sixth actor to play the secret agent, helped the Bond series celebrate its 50th anniversary with the November release of Skyfall—Craig's third film as the legendary cinematic character. His charm—both on and off screen—is powerful enough to even woo Queen Elizabeth, who made an appearance with Craig for the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games this summer.
We want this werewolf! We love watching this 35-year-old as Alcide on True Blood, and we loved him even more when he showed off his amazing body in Magic Mike. Six pack, anyone? Yes, please!
Channing Tatum, we wish we could clone you! This year, he proved he's a sensitive bloke (co-starring with Rachel McAdams in The Vow) and a walking sexpot (uh, Magic Mike, anyone?), a combination that got the heart rates racing for ladies across the country. Truth is, he’s only in love with one—wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum—and his devotion to her is one of his sexiest qualities, just behind his washboard abs, of course.
This sexy bad boy is a triple threat: He can sing (Maroon 5's Overexposed album churned out hits like "Payphone" and "Moves Like Jagger"), he can help (he's a mentor on The Voice), and he can act (he stars in American Horror Story: Asylum). What's not to love?
