‘Schitt’s Creek’ Star Dan Levy One Of People’s Sexiest Men: ‘This Form Of Sexy Is A Niche Market’:
Dan Levy — the actor-writer-producer-director behind the Emmy-winning sitcom “Schitt’s Creek” — can add another impressive line to his resume: One of People’s sexiest men alive.
“This form of sexy is a niche market, but I appreciate that you’re recognizing it,” the “Schitt’s Creek” co-creator and star joked in a video interview for the magazine, published Tuesday.
Levy also offered the magazine an update on what he’s been up to in 2020.
“Other than baking a lot of bread and taking my dog on some long walks, it’s been a lot of reading and learning,” said Levy, adding that he’s discovered cooking isn’t his forte.
According to Levy, he tried his hand at pasta sauces, banana bread, sourdough bread and Cosmopolitans, but “none of these kind of inspiring exercises in the kitchen worked out.”
“All it did for me was just, like, remind myself that I should be saving my money and putting it towards ordering food so that someone can do it for me,” he continued. “I’m just not skilled in the kitchen at all.”
What ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Star Dan Levy Said About Making People’s Sexiest Men List:
In addition to cooking, Dan Levy also said puzzles were another quarantine pastime he couldn’t get behind.
“I am too short-tempered for a puzzle, so I try not to walk down paths that I know are just not gonna be good for my spirit,” he said. “I just thought to myself, ‘There’s a lot going on in my head. I don’t need to throw that puzzle challenge unnecessarily into the mix.’ Why would I do a puzzle when I could put on a television show or read a book or watch a movie?”
As for entertainment, Levy said he’s spent the pandemic binging “every single television show that’s ever been made,” including “Normal People,” “Insecure” and even a little bit of “Tiger King.” However, the actor said his taste in TV slowly devolved from scripted drama to reality fare like “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Below Deck Mediterranean.”
“I went from pretty OK TV, and then it just slid downhill,” he said. “Now it’s people throwing drinks at each other on a yacht.”
But lucky for Levy, you can still be one of the sexiest men alive if you’ve been binging television rather than spending every moment of quarantine working out.
“I guess my form of self-care is just not doing much when it comes to physical activity, which I probably should not be saying in some kind of sexiest person issue of a magazine, because there’s inevitably going to be many men in this issue with very intense bodies,” he said. “I can’t wait for this video to just be paired beside Chris Hemsworth shirtless in a bathing suit coming out of a beach or something, and I’m talking about, like, failing at bread.”
On Tuesday evening’s episode (11:30 pm EST) of Jimmy Kimmel Live! the Sexiest Man Alive of 2020 will be crowned. Past Sexiest Men Alive include Idris Elba, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Dwayne Johnson.
