The mock-doc mastermind
He’s earned great success as Borat Sagdiyev, a tactless TV journalist from Kazakhstan. Sexy Cambridge-educated
Sacha Baron Cohen — and the slew of controversial alter egos he propagates — has shocked and offended his way to #1 in our books.
The British boy brand
If it weren’t for copyright laws, we’d bottle up this sweet-smelling soccer jockey and name a beer after him. The transatlantic appeal of
David "Becks" Beckham, a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, is more shocking than a cleat to the face. Welcome to the west, old sport!
The howling hottie
On May 26, 2006, Hugh Jackman‘s X-Men 3 growled into history, raking in almost $45 million in one day. Equipped with come-hither retractable claws and a chest carved from Olympus, this Down Under wolverine’s swoon factor is through the roof.
The natural Bond
Daniel Craig, a Chester, England native, could don hot pink handle-hugging swim trunks to a girlfriend’s family reunion and still get asked back. Outsmarting adversaries since, well, 2006, our most natural Bond is an ellecanada.com Gold Member, darling.
The Swiss mister
Winning his fourth straight Wimbledon and third consecutive US open in 2006, 26-year-old Roger Federer is master of his baseline. Also active in raising funds to benefit various foundations, Federer — who is known to wear gold encrusted Nikes — has no qualms about Swiss goodwill.

The literary humanist
Dubbed one of the sexiest men alive by People magazine, this Emmy award-winning CNN anchor released a memoir last May. With a penchant for humanizing tragedy, New York’s Anderson Cooper has broken out of stuffy anchor mould and into the #4 Members Only hot slot.
The dashing philanthropist
There’s buzz that Prince William, patron of a London shelter for homeless youth, could be getting some action, though certainly not front line. It’s crown off for 2nd Lieutenant William Wales, who, as of last December, is training to be a British Army troop commander.
The rule maker
His anti-Corp personality and mama’s boy edge make him the CBC’s most coveted outlaw. George Stroumboulopoulos is sweeping the country with his show, The Hour, where he picks the brains of political bigwigs like Margaret Trudeau, Belinda Stronach and Jesse Jackson.
The inside man
He used to avoid star-making roles to protect the privacy of his wife and kids. But after taking on Children of Men, released last December, Clive Owen‘s media presence has skyrocketed. At #7, this darkly handsome British bloke is a bona fide ellecanada.com crowd pleaser.
The charitable swinger
When it comes to sports for a cause, the putt stops here. Tiger Woods, 2006’s PGA and British Open champion, operates a foundation that promotes the health and well-being of young people. Any questions? Yes, what’s the cut-off for enrollment?
