Hugh Jackman: The Sexiest Man Alive

He's a triple threat: a star who can sing, dance and wield a weapon.

People writes:
At 6 ft. 2 in., all scruff and biceps, Hugh Jackman looms large in the epic Australia, which he says kept him "dirty 95 percent of the time" and left people stammering, "Oh ... my ... God," according to costar Nicole Kidman, who adds, "Women's jaws drop when Hugh walks into a room." Jackman's wife of 12 years, Deborra-Lee Furness, calls his perfect form "the Body of Doom – but I like what's inside": a romantic who sings ballads at home and makes pancakes for Oscar, 8, and Ava, 3. A hard body with a soft center – 2008's Sexiest Man Alive sat down with PEOPLE's Elizabeth Leonard and Julie Jordan to reveal most of his secrets.

People: You turned 40 Oct. 12 and now you're the Sexiest Man Alive. What was your wife's response?

Hugh Jackman: God bless her, she said, "I could've told them that years ago!" And then she said, "Obviously, Brad wasn't available this year." And I said, "That was a joke, right?"

People: Are you self-conscious about any body part?

Hugh Jackman: When I was younger, I had chicken legs. My nickname was Sticks.

People: What part do people like best?

Hugh Jackman: My smile. Lately my pecs. I'm being honest!

People: What do you wear to bed?

Hugh Jackman: I didn't wear anything until my daughter was born and we had a night nanny because I was working. I walked out stark naked, and she was reading a book. Now I like boxer briefs.
