What does it take to make it onto the hottest annual list ever a.k.a. People Magazine‘s Sexiest Men Alive issue? Apparently, mesmerizing eyes, confidence, a huge heart and pure animal magnetism are all requirements. How do we know for sure? Ian Somerhalder made the cut, which pretty much confirms that our guesses are correct.
With his luscious smirk and philanthropic mindset, Ian is certainly a shoo-in but he doesn’t seem to think so. The smoldering Vampire Diaries actor could hardly believe his ears when he found out that he was chosen for the 2013 feature. “What I thought was: A. I should not be in this category. The editors — you guys — must have been drinking,” he joked. However, when he was offered the opportunity to bring his cat Moke on set for the photoshoot, he couldn’t resist. And let’s just say we’ve never been more envious of a furry feline creature than we are right now.
