Well here is the news you have probably been waiting for all year. People magazine gave Vancouver’s Ryan Reynolds the title of “Sexiest Man Alive“. But what did he do to deserve the honour?

Besides starring in Buried, which featured him trapped in a box for half the movie (dreamy!), he is also playing Hal Jordan in the wildly-anticipated Green Lantern in 2011. The trailer, by coincidence, came out on Wednesday.

Last year, Reynolds worked with Sandra Bullock on The Proposal, which was a box-office blowout. And he’s married to Scarlett Johanssen, so there’s that too. He was also named “Babe of the Year” by GQ Magazine last week.

Reynolds beat out Mad Men’s Jon Hamm, Canadian rapper Drake and Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz.

He tells People: “Now it’s going to be, ‘Sexiest man, take out the garbage.’ That does sound better…the most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers.”

Strangely enough, the magazine’s Facebook poll showed a different result when readers were asked to vote for who they thought deserved the title. Vin Diesel, who placed 11th on the official list, was No. 1.
