Adam Levine, PEOPLE's newly anointed Sexiest Man Alive, admitted that "becoming this cool, confident and seductive has been quite a journey."
"A lot of people trivialize this sort of thing. They say it's shallow and think it's just a media stunt used to sell magazines and perpetuate the image of Hollywood being based on looks. And that's totally true," the Maroon 5 frontman, not being entirely serious, said on Wednesday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live. "But I'm completely cool with that."

The Twilight Saga might be coming to a close, but Robert Pattinson's career continues to make headlines.
Deadline confirmed that Pattinson will star opposite Carey Mulligan in Hold On To Me, the inspired-by-true-events story of a kidnapping gone wrong directed by James Marsh (who won Oscars for his films Man On Wire and Project Nim). The steamy crime drama follows a couple who kidnap the richest man in town for ransom and bury him.
Glee and Gossip Girl also announced a slew of cameos, while Aaron Paul secured a very different film role for the Breaking Bad star.
Keep up with who has been cast below:

Hard to believe, but with so many notable roles under their belts over the past several years, Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominees Kenneth Branagh, Nick Nolte, Christopher Plummer and Max Von Sydow have never grabbed the gold.
That is likely to change Sunday night – for one of them. Or, in an upset, possibly for the much-younger Jonah Hill.
And while the smart money is on either Oscar-less octogenarian Christopher Plummer, for his Screen Actors Guild-winning turn as a father who comes out sexually late in life in The Beginners, or Max Von Sydow, as a contemporary man who still suffers the effects of WWII in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, no nominee can be counted out in this race.

Comedy counts in Hollywood, for once, with two surprise nominations for Bridesmaids, for Supporting Actress Melissa McCarthy and Best Screenplay writer Kristen Wiig, according to this year's Oscar nominations, announced early Tuesday at the Beverly Hills headquarters of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
As anticipated – given earlier honors from critics' group and the Golden Globes – nominations in the Best Picture category included those for director Alexander Payne's family drama set in Hawaii The Descendants (five nods) and the love letters to early movies, The Artist, with 10 nominations, and Martin Scorsese's Hugo, with 11. In all, nine films received Best Picture nominations.
Acting nods went to, among others, those friendly rivals George Clooney, for The Descendants, and Brad Pitt, for Moneyball.
For Best Actress, Michelle Williams was cited for her turn as Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn, as was Meryl Streep, who plays former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, in The Iron Lady.
Streep's nomination is her 17th – an all-time Academy record. (Both Jack Nicholson and Katharine Hepburn received 12 nominations; he won three times and she won four.) Streep has won twice, as Best Supporting Actress for 1979's Kramer vs. Kramer, and as Best Actress for 1982's Sophie's Choice.

When he first arrived on the scene 35 years ago, Nick Nolte was the instant blue-eyed, blond hunk du jour. In 1992, he was PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive. Then, nearly 10 years ago, his arrest in Malibu for driving under the influence put him in a freaky mug shot seen – and parodied – around the world.
Looking back on that incident – and on life, in general – for GQ in its January issue, which hits newsstands Dec. 20, Nolte reveals that the infamous photo of him in an Hawaiian shirt and with flyaway hair was, in fact, not the police mug shot at all.
