Move over, Georgie boy

I knew Jason Bourne had it in the bag.

Finally, after years of relentless ribbing, dogged campaigning, and even some helpful coaching by buddies and former Sexiest Men Alive George and Brad, the talented Mr. Damon has earned People magazine's plum for the year's most droolicious male. This distinction is a sweet addition to Matt's earlier accomplishment this year, topping Forbes magazine's list of Hollywood's most bankable stars. I have adored Matt since he bared his soul (and killer abs) in Good Will Hunting, and though I admit he doesn't have the aesthetic appeal of Messrs. Clooney and Pitt, his less-than-perfect features combine for a very attractive total package. Those arresting blue eyes, that crooked boyish grin-- they hint at a depth of character and an aw-shucks charm that I find irresistible... not to mention he went to Harvard! Intellect plus intensity plus impishness equals my idea of sexy. As my student Jo says, Matt Damon is the thinking woman's man, and this woman thinks People definitely made the right choice this year.

Now Matt just needs to win it another year to tie George and Brad and shut them up for good...
