Really, Canada? Avril Lavigne Beats Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds And Rachel McAdams As Country’s Most Beautiful Star
Dear Canada: why’d you have to go and make things so “Complicated?”
On Thursday, Hello! Canada unveiled its list of the 50 Most Beautiful Stars, and sitting at the very top is Avril Lavigne, aka Mrs. Chad Kroeger to-be, aka. the same musician who says she has a song about Hello Kitty on her next album.
“She’s gorgeous,” the publication’s EIC Alison Eastwood said [via The Star]. “I’m most excited that she’s wearing an outfit that isn’t black on the cover.”
Eastwood also added that in making the list, Hello! searched for not just “celebrities genetically blessed, but ones who are also really hot in 2013. It’s not entirely scientific.”
According to the list, Canada’s equivalent of Gwyneth Paltrow beat out other beautiful products from the North: Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds, Rachel McAdams, Hannah Simone, Emily VanCamp and model Jessica Stam.
Scientific proof aside, Lavigne’s “hot” year — which includes a wedding to Kroeger and the release of her fifth studio album — is, in this Canadian’s opinion, second to say, Gosling’s year.
The actor already has one critically acclaimed film out (The Place Beyond The Pines), is set to knock our teeth out with July’s Only God Forgives and is going behind the camera for the first time. Just look at how hard he works on his own set.
Meanwhile, the other Ryan, is one of the voices behind one of the year’s biggest animated films (The Croods), has a huge action film coming out this June (R.I.P.D.) and is happily enjoying his first year of marriage to fellow beautiful person Blake Lively.
McAdams has three films out this year, including the latest Terrence Malick spectacle To the Wonder, opposite Ben Affleck. The 34-year-old actress’ next project will be alongside beautiful Americans Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone in a film directed by Cameron Crowe.
