Little did Henry W. Beaty suspect, as he was growing up, that he would some day be the subject of a book titled "The Sexiest Man Alive." I'm talking, of course, about Warren Beatty. Biographer Ellis Amburn says that the actor never liked his real first name because at home he was called Little Henry owing to "his unfortunate resemblance to the imbecilic-looking cartoon character of that name." (Beatty later added a "t" to his last name.

You know your parody worked brilliantly when someone -- ideally a big someone -- doesn't have a clue that it's a parody. The Onion did not, in Lincoln's phrase, fool all of the people all of the time. But it evidently fooled more than a quarter of a billion people for some of the time -- the subscribers and Web readers of China's Communist Party newspaper, the People's Daily, with more than 3 million subscribers worldwide and tens of millions of daily hits to its website. This organ of well-scrubbed “information” reported as sober fact the Onion's parody of People magazine's “sexiest person alive” listing of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as its own sexiest man alive.

From People magazine with love, soon-to-be-sexagenarian Sean Connery is the "Sexiest Man Alive, 1989." "For once, I'm speechless," Connery said after being informed of the honor. "It'll all be downhill from here." He joins the ranks of John F. Kennedy Jr., 1988; Harry Hamlin, 1987; Mark Harmon, 1986; and Mel Gibson, 1985. "He was sexy at 26, and at 60 even more so," actress Shelley Winters said of Connery, whom she dated during the 1950s. "He makes a woman feel sexual chemistry.

Channing Tatum has worked some magazine magic: He's been named People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.

(The "sexiest" news first leaked last week , and in case Tatum wasn't convinced of his hotness, he was also named a GQ Man of the Year on Tuesday.

I enjoyed the interview with cast members of Steven Soderbergh's remake of "Ocean's Eleven," and the banter among George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts, especially Clooney's constant prattling about booze ("The Rat-a-Tat Pack," by Rachel Abramowitz, Nov. 11). What disappointed, however, was the minimal participation of the best actor in that room--Don Cheadle. I hope Cheadle's involvement in the film doesn't parallel his presence in your article. (I also hope the movie doesn't fuel an argument as to who the sexiest man alive is, either.

From the moment Channing Tatum gyrated and swayed his way to see Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show earlier this week, the women in the crowd couldn't contain themselves.

Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum have plenty to dance about: Husband and wife will soon be mommy and daddy. Tatum and Dewan-Tatum reps confirmed the two ”are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year,” according to People. This will be the first bundle for the actors who sparked on the set of 2006's "Step Up" and got hitched in  March 2009. "The first number that pops into my head is three," Tatum told the magazine about his ideal brood, "but I just want one to be healthy and then we'll see where we go after that.” It's not as if the Tatum household isn't busy as it is: Channing's had a banner year solidifying himself as a bankable movie star and sexiest man alive, while Jenna stretched some bad-girl muscles on "American Horror Story: Asylum.

The Onion declared North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un the "Sexiest Man Alive," and People's Daily said yes, yes he is. The Chinese state news outlet missed the point entirely, which media everywhere gleefully pointed out.  "The Onion dupes again ," said U.S. News & World Report. "We've saved the headline for posterity," crowed Shanghaiist. The Onion, after all, is a satirical news site. Tuesday's headlines included "42 Million Dead in Bloodiest Black Friday Weekend on Record," "Reporter Investigates Claims He Ruined His Family's Thanksgiving Dinner" and "Garrison Keillor Fully Deflates After Massive Sigh.
