Kennedy: SMA?

10/02/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

That Ted Kennedy is a good sport. The other night at a fund-raising event in Manhattan, reports The New York Times, the senator pulled out of his pocket the Letters page from a five-month-old copy of PEOPLE Magazine. The writer of the letter was upset that PEOPLE had chosen someone as "old" as Richard Gere, 50, as 1999's Sexiest Man Alive. Quoting the letter, Kennedy, 68, read to the crowd: "Richard Gere? Sexiest Man Alive? Who's next? Ted Kennedy?"
