This year we ogled all types of eye candy, from royals to athletes to movie stars. Sexy soccer player slash dad slash underwear model David Beckham had a big year with his H&M collaboration and grand boat entrance at the Olympics Opening Ceremony. Also at the Olympics was US swimmer and gold medalist Ryan Lochte, who swam his way into the hearts of women everywhere as the breakout hottie of the London Games.
Royal redhead Prince Harry was as swoon-worthy and single as ever, even if he did have a little too much fun in Vegas resulting in some naughty nude pics. James Bond aka Daniel Craig returned to the big screen in all his fine 007 glory in Skyfall, while Robert Pattinson's Twilight alter ego said goodbye in the final Twilight film. The always enticing Michael Fassbender may have had a quieter year than his very, um, revealing 2011, but the German Irishman proved he could even make androids sexy in Prometheus. And even though Ryan Gosling has left a hey-girl-sized hole in our hearts with his under-the-radar year, we're already anticipating his upcoming projects like Gangster Squad that he's been filming throughout 2012. Then we can't forget Magic Mike's sultry strippers Matt Bomer and Channing Tatum, who heated things up with their shirtless dance moves. Man of the hour Channing even earned himself People's Sexiest Man Alive title. But we're wondering: who do you think is the sexiest man of 2012?
