Never mind that Leo guy. When it comes to hot costars, Kate Winslet prefers a more mature man.

"Eli Wallach is my very own Sexiest Man Alive!" Winslet gushed Sunday night at a gala honoring her friend and fellow actor Wallach, 92.

"The truth is," she told guests at Tavern on the Green in New York, which included Wallach and his longtime wife, actress Anne Jackson, "Annie, if I had been around 60 years ago, you would have had some tough competition!"

Winslet, 33, attended the 80th anniversary gala dinner for the famed New York acting school, The Neighborhood Playhouse, to give an award to former student Wallach – who auditioned for the school in 1938 and is known for starring in such classics as The Misfits, The Magnificent Seven, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
