HEY JUDE Law is the sexiest

Not only is Jude Law, who's in half a dozen movies this fall, the most ubiquitous man alive, but he's also the sexiest. So says People magazine, which made the 31-year-old British thespian the cover boy of its annual Sexiest Man Alive issue. In fact, says his I Heart Huckabees costar Naomi Watts, he's ''the most beautiful man who ever walked the Earth.'' The magazine (which, like EW.com, is part of Time Warner) cites Orlando Bloom, Jake Gyllenhaal, Usher, Colin Farrell, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Bruce Willis, and Johnny Depp as ''off the charts'' sexy. Others on the list include Adam Brody, Don Cheadle, Jim Caviezel, Jimmy Smits, Colin Firth, Matt LeBlanc, and Desperate Housewives plumber James Denton.

Not to be outdone, rival Us Weekly has its list of TV's 10 Hottest Men, led by Housewives gardener Jesse Metcalfe. Also named are Shane West (ER), Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas), and Matthew Fox (Lost).
