Matt Damon is People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. Is He Yours? by Diana Holquist
Well, there it is. Matt Damon, People magazine 2007 Sexiest Man Alive.
When I saw it, my heart sank. And I HATE to write "my heart sank" for two reasons.
One, I'm a romance writer, so I HATE cliches like sinking hearts.
Two, I adore Matt Damon, but I was pulling so hard for my man Beckham and for all those CRAZY, fun, funny Gerard Butler fans who I've met these last few weeks as they voted (and voted and voted) in the Sexiest Man Alive poll.
Over 1200 votes in. Mr. Butler's the big winner with my poll, Gerry Army. (Watch out for these guys; they're serious.)
Anyway, on with the show, I suppose. But why do I feel so sad?
Was I won over by the Gerry fans who are SO passionate about their man? Was it deeper: a sadness for myself facing the reality that it's tough out there and our babies can't always win? I should be happy, in a way, because this proves that novels are infinitely better than magazines, as we can read a novel and imagine whomever we please as the hero. Matt. Brad. Gerry. David....
Oh. Sorry. Got distracted.
Anyway, I have no answers. Don't know. I'll have to head out and get the issue.
Anyone read it yet? What do you all think? Damon? Hmmm...
