It’s time for People to close up shop and Blake Shelton and the other sexiest men to hand over their awards because George Clooney is officially the most handsome and sexiest man alive ever. Well, according to George Clooney and Brad Pitt, that is. After hearing that George’s best bro Brad Pitt said that George he’s totally the most handsome dude out there, George is sharing the good word with any TV talk show host who will listen.
In an interview with Brad Pitt, Vogue asked him who he considered were the best-looking men in the world, past and present. When it came to past, he answered Paul Newman (nice). But knowing that he couldn’t scream, “ME! I’M THE BEST LOOKING! IT’S ME!” for the present without getting some PR flak, Brad generously awarded the designation to his buddy, Terrible Batman.
This video is like catnip to talk show hosts who need softball content for their programs. George is currently doing the circuit for his and his wife Amal Clooney’s charitable foundation, and he’s also promoting his new movie with Julia Roberts, Ticket to Paradise, which sadly isn’t an Eddie Money biopic. The topic of the most handsome man came up on CBS This Morning, and after saying that Brad probably said himself first, George jokingly agreed with his friend’s views on the matter.
Oh, that Clooney! He’s so unruffled as the silver hair on his head! The “Yeah, I know I’m pretty” tour continued on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Stephen brought up the Brad Pitt comment, allowing George Clooney to say his rehearsed line again.
So, so there you have it. We can finally put an end to the question of who’s the prettiest man in the world. Congrats, Paul Newman!
