GQ's men - and babe - of the year

GQ has announced its Men of the Year and they include James Franco, Jeff Bridges, Drake, Stephen Colbert, and…. Scarlett Johansson?

Yep, the sultry "Iron Man 2" star was crowned the magazine's Babe of the Year, an honor she likely appreciates as much as her craft.

"It just satisfies some part of you," she says of acting. "There’s this indescribable thing that happens when you know that something’s working, a sense of the timing and everything coming together… I like taking apart something and trying to figure out what will make this interesting to watch. What’s going to make this…delicious.”

GQ's Men (and Babe) of the Year

Icon of the Year Jeff Bridges admits to GQ that despite a career of acclaimed films - including "Crazy Heart," "Seabiscuit," "The Big Lebowski," and "The Fabulous Baker Boys" - there is one picture he isn't particularly proud of: 1976's "King Kong" remake. "They had a guy in a monkey suit and then this eighty-foot stiff thing, and they’re supposed to be the same," he recalls. "I said, 'Oh God.'"

Meanwhile, Leading Man of the Year James Franco finds that he is getting written about more for his private life than his art. The "127 Hours" star, whose college days, soap opera stint and sexuality have all been hot topics on blogs, says "By now you can tell what is gonna blow up on the blogosphere. Sexual stuff, gay stuff, embarrassing stuff. Sleeping in class stuff, getting bad grades stuff. But if I write something about poetry or somebody reviews my art show like [The New York Times critic] Roberta Smith? It goes nowhere.”

Hip-hop artist Drake, who won the title of GQ's Breakout of the Year, doesn't mind being talked about in the press - just as long as they're not saying he's over. “You can say I’m gay, you can say I dress whack, you can say whatever," he says. "But the moment somebody says, ‘Yo, I think he’s losing his appeal’? That hits me harder than anything.”

The December issue of GQ, which also features Patriot of the Year Stephen Colbert, lands on newsstands November 23.

      Dude, come on. There's always some whiny loser like you trying to bring up Obama, no matter what the story is about. It's really lame. If you dislike him so much, maye you should try to not obsess so much. You'd probably be happier, instead of being one of those losers always crying about how everything is collapsing because of Obama. Grow up.

    • Blame Obama

      You are just mad that you and your fellow liberals are running this once great country into the ground. And you should be mad! But not at me.

    • Posh-Kenneth

      Yeah, as far as any intelligent and reasonably informed person can tell the country was being run into the ground well before Obama was sworn in as president. Yeah, you stupid redneck republicans can blame the genius you all voted in before him: George W. Bush. But you know what? You can blame one dude or the whole of the congress\senate like a smart person should because it goes through them before anything can be done.

      also, you're an idiot. Just sayin. Do some research before you open you're mouth. Now, kindly return to wipin your hands on your wife beater, watchin your Jerry Springer, while waving your confederate flag you racist bigot. I bet you hate Jews too, blame all the wars on them like GOOD OLE Mel Gibson. Moron.
