Yes, admirers of the male form, it’s Benedict Cumberbatch, recently voted Sexiest Man of 2013 by Empire Magazine, famously run by and for the mens. The straight ones. Which is why we assume it’s straight men that have come up with a crazy list that puts Benny (we know he’s nice, no one’s talking about nice, but in this instance nice cuts no ice: any old mug can be nice) at the top.
Tom Hiddleston, a plain-looking motherfreaker who has something to do with The Avengers movies is at two, Henry Cavill at number three we will give you, Ryan Gosling at four is cute, but really? While number five is Robert Downey Jr., presumably for being in Guy Ritchie movies.
So, Sexiest Women according to gay men: 1. Madonna 2. Karen Walker from Will & Grace 3. Diana Ross 4. The Queen and 5. Cindy Beale from Coronation Street. See how it works getting the wrong people to choose, Empire?
This is what happens when a bunch of straight men decide on Sexiest Man of the Year,
