HBO can't believe this. We had it on good authority that People magazine had selected His Bobness/Unbearable Bobness of Being as the sexiest man alive here. Seems there must have been a recount because Matthew McConaughey will appear in that role on the cover of People's 'sexiest' issue, available on newsstands, Friday, Nov. 18, 2005. McConaughey is the 20th 'sexiest man' for People, who first bequeathed the honor to Mel Gibson in 1985. The magazine credited McConaughey's "heaping helping of Texas's finest Southern charm" for the choice. The actor, whose career began with "Dazed and Confused" and "A Time to Kill," starred this year in the summer action flick "Sahara" and alongside Al Pacino in "Two for the Money."/AP Photo/People Magazine. HBO demands a recount. "Sahara" wasn't even that good.
