Each year, Ryan Gosling remains the sexiest man alive to millions of fans (and probably even non-fans).
But each year, God's gift to the world is NOT given the top spot on People magazine's annual Sexiest Man Alive issue…
And each year, the internet becomes enraged at the injustice.
Now, however, sources are saying the Hollywood heartthrob hasn't been awarded the prestigious title because he keeps turning down the mag's offers!

WHY, GOSLING, WHYYY?!!?
An insider recently spilled:
"They tried a few times, especially during his huge year in 2011. The consensus was he's too serious for it, too artsy."
Too serious and artsy to be praised for his photoshopped-looking abs???
Too cool to pose for a seXXXy magazine cover and spread that the entire world can subsequently fawn over??
But…but…didn't George Clooney say that Ryan really wanted the title back in 2011? Even Bradley Cooper agreed RyGos should've gotten the honor over him that year!!

Which makes us wonder: is the source LYING in an attempt to calm the internet down??
Regardless, we can still look forward to the photo shoot for this year's sexiest man, Chris Hemsworth.
Definitely can't complain about THAT!
