He also joked about the effect the title would have on Johansson. "Now it's going to be, Sexiest man, take out the garbage. That does sound better," he said. "The most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers."
His victory comes hot on the heels of that of his wife of two years, actress Scarlett Johansson, who earned the title of '2010's Babe of the Year' from GQ magazine Monday. Both starred in seductive front cover shoots for the respective magazines to mark the triumph.
