Mickey Mouse is often regarded as people’s favorite Disney character. This is why everyone was so upset when it was announced here that Mickey would no longer be the official Disney mascot. Despite this sad news, Disney still loves Mickey. In fact, he will be starring in his own horror movie, Mickey Mouse’s Midnight Massacre. Well, Mickey Mouse continues to shine, especially with him being named People Magazine’s 2023 Sexiest Man Alive.
The much-loved Mickey Mouse made his debut in 1928 in Steamboat Willie. Since then, he has received 10 nominations for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. In fact, on November 18, 1978, Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Mickey is shattering another barrier by being the first cartoon character to be named the sexiest man alive by People Magazine.
Mickey Mouse as The Sexiest Man Alive
People Magazine has released their Sexiest Man Alive issue for 2023 and it’s quite the list. It includes artists like Usher, Snoop Dogg, and Lenny Kravitz. They also include unexpected people like Jason Kelce, the brother of the overhyped Travis Kelce, as well as Patrick Dempsey. However, the biggest surprise on the list is none other than Mickey Mouse.
As we mentioned earlier, Mickey Mouse is the first ever cartoon character to win this award. Many people are stunned that Mickey Mouse was nominated for this. Not only because he is a cartoon character, but more so because many suggest he isn’t even close to the sexiest man in a cartoon. Most people point to Gaston as the sexiest cartoon character, meanwhile, others suggest it should have been given to Shrek as a human in Shrek 2.
Clearly, there is a ton of debate and discussion around Mickey Mouse being named one of People Magazine’s sexiest men alive. Despite the pushback, there are some people who are thrilled that Mickey got this prestigious nomination. In fact, they say this is long overdue and that he is leaps and bounds ahead of most of the people on the list.
How Mickey Became the Sexiest Man Alive
Many are wondering how People Magazine determined Mickey Mouse was worthy of the sexiest man alive award. If you just look at the image above, it becomes apparent. Very few people realize that Mickey Mouse is actually jacked. He has a full six-pack and massive biceps. However, he tends to hide those from crowds at the park and in his cartoons and movies.
In fact, according to an internal source, Mickey Mouse works out a lot when he is off-camera and backstage. But it’s not only his physical looks that have him getting the nomination. Mickey Mouse is a beloved character. His laugh and kind spirit all play into him being named the Sexiest Man Alive. Mickey Mouse’s personality is extremely caring, which helps elevate him when it comes to nominating people.
The world-famous mouse has truly paved the way for other cartoon characters to make it on this list. In fact, we expect to see even more cartoon characters next year now that Mickey has laid the groundwork. Many people are expecting Gaston to be nominated next year and some even think Jafar has a shot. Only time will tell if more cartoon characters get nominated for this prestigious award.
