Reese Witherspoon may have decided that she didn't want to be married to Ryan Phillippe anymore but that does not take away from his insane hotness. Remember when Ryan would show up at the UCLA track to work out?
Or do y'all remember when Ryan would take his kids to the beach and leave his shirt at home?
Yes, Ryan sure added to the hotness of '06 but I think the crown of the Hottest Male Celeb of the Year has to go to David Beckham:
Ye Gods Above ... this summer Becks donned a few different pair of speedo shorts and gave us all a sight to behold ...
... and behold ...
Yeah, I was beholdin' all over the place once these pictures came out ;)
For his brave love of the tiny bikini and his overall devilish good looks, David Beckham gets a salute from me!
Not to be outdone by Becks, fellow footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was also one of the year's hot hotties:
Those soccer players really do love the short shorts, don't they?
Reichen Lehmkuhl showed the world was Lance Bass gets to enjoy whenever he likes:
And the boys of McFly got a little cheeky on stage at the G-A-Y nightclub in London:
Paul Rudd surprised me with his sexiness this year:
And the Italian soccer team really brought on the hotness as the World Cup took center stage at the beginning of the summer:
There was a lot of hotness all thruout the World Cup tournament but in the end those lovely Italians ended up winning the whole thing ... so how did they choose to celebrate? Why, pantsless of course:
This is but a taste of the year's hotness ... it was a really good year for bringing the sexy ... period.
