Brace yourself for the inevitable backlash from Ryan Gosling fans: Once again, someone else—namely Channing Tatum—has robbed him of his rightful place as People's Sexiest Man Alive. Tatum grabbed this year's title thanks in part to his "incredibly chiseled body" (People's words) in Magic Mike. His first thought upon hearing he'd won: "Y'all are messing with me," a modest Tatum tells the mag. His wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum's reaction: "She was like, 'What?'"

Expect outrage, considering Gosling fans actually protested outside the People offices last year after Bradley Cooper was crowned instead of the Gos. (Cooper himself eventually admitted that Ryan is way sexier than he is.) Click to see how Cooper spent his last day as Sexiest Man. (More Sexiest Man Alive stories.)
