Congrats, Roger! :worship: The title is very James Bond, isn't it?

I think this issue comes out next week...I'll try and scan it for folks who don't have access to the US version of People Mag.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - It must be sexy playing the bongos naked.

Actor Matthew McConaughey, who was arrested in 1999 while playing bongo drums and dancing naked in his Texas home, was named People magazine's "sexiest man alive" on Wednesday.

It is the 20th year the popular culture magazine has offered up lists bestowing honors on a wide range of men it deems notable for sex appeal or other attributes.

One surprise this year was special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, lead investigator in the CIA leak case, who landed in the "Why We Love Smart Guys" category along with CNN newsman Anderson Cooper and U2 lead singer Bono.

Actors Brad Pitt and George Clooney, who were both named "sexiest man alive" in past years, were on the "Most Wanted" man list this year, and Japanese actor Ken Watanabe and Swiss tennis player Roger Federer were among the "International Men of Sexiness."

But the top prize belongs to McConaughey, and the 36-year-old star of recent films "Two for the Money" and "Sahara" told the magazine what he liked most was "the 'alive' part."

"Now I've made it. Wait until you see the roles I could take after this. You're going to see my gut hanging over, plus 22 (pounds)," he joked.

People magazine said it chose the Texas native this year because he is "chivalrous, passionate and cooks a mean marinara."

McConaughey gained wide recognition in director Richard Linklater's 1993 comedy "Dazed and Confused" about life at a Texas high school and went on to leading man roles in thriller "U-571" and romantic comedy "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days."

In this year's adventure film "Sahara," which earned $120 million at global box offices, he co-starred with girlfriend Penelope Cruz.

In October 1999, police in Austin, Texas responded to a noise complaint, looked into McConaughey's home and spotted what they suspected was a marijuana-smoking device. They entered to find the actor playing bongos and dancing naked. He later paid a $50 fine for a noise violation and prosecutors dropped a charge of resisting transport.

Q. I understand People Magazine has
included you in one of their sexiest people
alive.
ROGER FEDERER: You know why
(smiling).
Q. Is that a compliment or a burden?
ROGER FEDERER: It's a compliment,yeah. That's why I put on clothes tonight so we can speak normally together, don't get all
overexcited (smiling).
Q. Tony Roche is coming here.
ROGER FEDERER: He is here.
Q. Did have you any advice from
him?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah. He doesn't
just come here to hang out with me. I mean, he
likes to visit the most sexiest guy alive once in a
while (laughter).
He gave me some advice, yeah.

:haha: :rolls:

:haha: :rolls:That's really funny. I like it when Rogi is in a good mood, laughing and acting like a little kid. In that Shanghai TV show he did he was laughing a bit when asked about his wardrobe. He said that he and Mirka always go shopping together and Mirka usually tells him what to wear. But sometimes when they're getting dressed he doesn't like what she wants to wear. It was so funny when he said this because he giggled a little bit, almost like he was embarrassed to admit it....

Matthew McConaughey the sexiest man alive? They're really scraping the bottom of the barrell. :retard: And, it has to be an American? People is almost as bad as ESPN2's tennis coverage. The guy who is supposedly AMONG the sexiest international men alive IS the sexiest man alive. (And, PaulieM will agree, has the best butt on the planet). The editors at People are not only xenophobic, they're also blind. :rolleyes:

the thing that separates Rogi fr those other "sexy" guys is that Rogi doesn't have to "try" to be "sexy". Have you seen the pix?

mcconaughey is good looking(although not always), but he's sooo far from the sexiest man alive, especially compared to some of the other people that have topped the list in years past. :rolleyes: i'd definitely do roger over him any day, but as he's not american there's no way he'd ever be the top of the list(and yes his ass is amazing :lick: ) it seems there's really been a lack of hot guys this year or something strange is going on because people isn't the only magazine that's had odd choices in listings of hot guys this year, strange. :shrug:

Still they could've picked someone better than McConaughey. The picture in there of Clive Owen is pretty yummy. I just hope Roger gets Sports Illustrated's player of the year, because then he will be on the cover.

"International Man of Sexiness" :lol: It does sound better

but the actual thing is "Sexiest Men Alive", they have had it every year , many years, and there is the "Winner" (this year Matthew McConnaughey) and then the other yummy men.

Still it's a great photo and he certainly didn't look out of place in the magazine. He was one of the youngest too. A couple guys named were 22, 23, but most were older than Rogi.

Federer has fun with "sexiest" label

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Roger Federer seems pretty comfortable with his new label as one of the sexiest men alive.

The world number one was named by People magazine as one of its "International Men of Sexiness" earlier this week and Federer is not about to argue.

"That's why I put clothes on tonight," joked Federer at the season-ending Masters Cup on Thursday. "So we can speak normally together and you don't get all over-excited."

Wearing a black tracksuit and white baseball cap, the Swiss teased Chinese reporters that his sex appeal even captivated his part-time coach Tony Roche.

"He likes to visit the sexiest guy alive once in a while," smiled Federer after beating Argentine Guillermo Coria to stay on track for a third straight Masters Cup title.

"He doesn't just come here to hang out with me."

Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion Federer was named alongside Japanese actor Ken Watanabe of "Last Samurai" fame among the popular culture magazine's overseas sex symbols.

Several tennis players have been similarly recognized by People magazine in the past, including Mark Philippoussis, Pat Rafter, Andy Roddick and James Blake.

"It's a compliment," said Federer.

I must be one of the few who doesn't care much for that pix! While I've always thought Roger was sexy (from when I first saw him in 2001), that pix doesn't do much for me ... he looks too hard and enigmatic - and we all know Roger is very soft + accessible. So for me that pix is trying to make him into something he's not. I've seen better pix of him full frontal .... :devil: .... er, I mean full face to the camera!
