Jonah Hill Presents Golden Globe As The Bear From 'The Revenant'
There's been a lot of chatter recently about that bear in the new Leonardo DiCaprio movie, 'The Revenant'. There were rumors at one point that the bear actually raped Leo in the movie and then there was talk about how DiCaprio had to don a 100-pound costume made out of bearskin for much of the flick. But as Jonah Hill pointed out during the 2016 Golden Globes Sunday night, we have yet to hear directly from the bear about all of this. Thankfully, that's a problem Hill was willing to solve himself, in hilarious fashion.

Channing Tatum was named this year's Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine, the 24th guy to earn the superficial title.

Tatum joins the likes of George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, Harrison Ford, Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt on the list; which has been around for 27 years now; and we thought we'd have a little fun with it and come up with a list of the top 10 guys we think (and are pretty sure) will never be named "Sexiest Man Alive" by People -- or any other publication, for that matter.
