Adam Levine Calls Sexiest Man Honors 'A Great Choice'

Originally posted 11/21/2013 12:25AM

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."

Ryan Gosling, Emma Watson & More: Which Stars to Expect at Cannes This Year

Cannes Film Festival Kicks Off with Great Gatsby, Emma Watson & More Stars Expected This Week

Originally posted 05/15/2013 11:00AM

Under unseasonably cloudy skies and dodging a few raindrops, Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire kicked off the 66th Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday just hours before walking the red carpet for their blockbuster film The Great Gatsby, which opened the star-studded 12-day extravaganza of movies and parties on the French Riviera.

"Every time I go to Cannes it feels like I'm entering the helicopter scene in La Dolce Vita; it's an insane experience," said DiCaprio, who posed for photos on the fabled Croisette next to his Gatsby costars.

Emma Watson, who stars in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, premiering Thursday, was spotted among the early celebrity arrivals at Nice International Airport on Tuesday – along with Paris Hilton, Cannes jury member Nicole Kidman and British singer Florence Welch.

We can now add cows to Ryan Gosling's fan club!

In conjunction with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the actor penned a letter to the National Milk Producers Federation asking them to bring an end to a practice known as dehorning, in which cows' horns are removed by being burned off, gouged out or chopped off.

"There is absolutely no reason – and no excuse – for the cruel, unnecessary practice of dehorning to continue," Gosling, 32, writes, advocating for the breeding of naturally hornless cows. "Please do the right thing and take action today."

Ryan Gosling: What Makes The Star Who Has Driven Fans To Obsession Tick?

Hey girl, sometimes dreams do come true.

Last fall, officials at the Texas School for the Deaf in Austin hoped to entice Ryan Gosling to attend a charity fundraiser by posting an open invitation in the form of the flirty "Hey Girl" Internet meme that riffs on his don't-you-wish-he-was-your-hipster-boyfriend reputation.

The day of the event, Gosling shocked organizers by turning up – with Rooney Mara and Michael Fassbender, his costars in the untitled Terrence Malick film shooting in town.

Gosling happily mingled, took photos with a long line of excited parents and kids, and at one point, he "paid $50 for a $1 glow-in-the-dark cotton candy," says Anne Adams, executive director of the school's foundation. "He insisted on learning the sign for please and thank you so he could properly show his appreciation to the child. He deserves every one of those 'hey girls!' "

Devoted son, quirky leading man – and everyone's favorite fantasy boyfriend.

But how does Ryan Gosling stack up in his real-life romance with actress Eva Mendes?

The "hey girl" Internet obsession, 32, "is an incredibly sweet boyfriend," a Gosling source tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. He and Mendes, 37, "get along so well because she's not needy or smothering," says another insider. "They just work."

Mendes is hardly the only one to fall under Gosling's spell. The former Mouseketeer – who brought his mom, Donna, as his date to the Jan. 7 Gangster Squad premiere in L.A. – is "funny and charming," says the film's director, Ruben Fleischer.
