Reynolds, who was once engaged to Ottawa-born singer Alanis Morissette, plays a gay character in his next film, The Nines. “(He) won our hearts when he started the himbo’ craze by taking it off for Blade: Trinity and The Amityville Horror,” the website declares, “giving us guys a reason to go to horror movies again.”
Coming in at No. 24 is Ryan Gosling, who was born in London, Ontario. The 26-year-old had an on-again, off-again relationship with actress Rachel McAdams, who was also born in London.
Keanu Reeves, who was born in Beirut but raised in Toronto, made the list at No. 62.
Transamerica star Kevin Zegers, 22, ranked No. 70, followed by Montreal-born diver Alexandre Despatie at No. 73.
People magazine’s choices for Sexiest Man Alive didn’t fare so well on the Hot 100 List. George Clooney came in at No. 92, Brad Pitt was ranked No. 12 and Matthew McConaughey made it to the No. 38 spot. Tom Cruise not only didn’t make the list he didn’t earn a single vote
Only 15 of the men on the list are openly gay but of the 83 actors, 49 have played gay characters.
“The list also includes men who are thought by many to be gay, but who are not publicly out,” the website’s editors explained.
Among the openly gay stars who made the cut are TR Knight (No. 8), John Barrowman (No. 10), Chad Allen (No. 31), and Neil Patrick Harris (No. 52).
CNN host Anderson Cooper, who ranked No. 32, told the website he was flattered to be on the list. “Clearly, they have not seen my pale skinny chicken legs. It’s nice to know there is a market for pale, skinny, grey-haired people.”
