MTV names Bill Murray their ‘sexiest man alive’: better than Adam Levine?

Bill Murray

These are photos of Bill Ghostbustin’ Murray at the Berlin premiere of Grand Budapest Hotel (Kaiser already covered the Tilda Swinton ferocity). Bill is one of my favorite movie personalities, so I’m thrilled to see him everywhere as he promotes this movie and The Monuments Men. Did you see him on Letterman last week? He flew onto the stage dressed as Peter Pan. He can only get away with such a ridiculous display because he’s Bill Murray.

MTV is spreading the love too. Most of the time, I roll my eyes when MTV tosses out an award or title. This time, I’m taking notice because they officially topped People’s declaration of Adam Levine as Sexiest Man Alive. MTV named Bill their Sexiest Man Alive and gave him a special hat. They also spoke to George Clooney and CB’s boyfriend, Matt Damon. Both men took the news well in this video. Bill simply laughed at the news and tried to give the hat away.

This reminds me of that quote in Stripes: “Chicks dig me because I rarely wear underwear, and when I do, it’s usually something memorable.” God, I love Bill Murray.

Bill’s also been doing the interview rounds. He confirmed how Clooney did alter Matt Damon’s pants on set, and Bill said everyone knew about it: Bill also said he enjoys crashing at Clooney’s villa. I want Bill to come crash at my “villa” too. Ahem.

      SO much better than that tattooed, sleazy, model-f&cker Levine.

      True story, I met Bill Murray, his brother Brian Doyle Murray and an entourage of kids from Duke University (never fully understood that connection?) in Captiva Island, FLA in the ’80′s. They were crazy, funny (loud!) and Bill was completely off his rocker, in a good way. Let’s just say that they created a very fun evening, fueled by all the evil party favors the ’80′s had to offer. Murray was talking to a bar stool by the time my friend and I made our escape from the club, but he left me with a great story.

      Thanks for the memories, Crazy Bill! #TeamMurray

    Well a negative STD test result is sexier than Adam Levine, and Bill Murray is just superior in every way so in answer to the title question: seriously?

  5. Sullivan says:

    Good Gawd, I love this man. He’s funny and smart with a just a hint of melancholy.

    • Zadie says:

      But is it true he beat up his ex?

      • FLORC says:

        Jennifer Murray in 2006 filed for divorce from her estranged husband Bill alledging a lot of stuff. Physical/verbal assault, abandonment, an alleged on her cell’s voicemail recording of him saying she was lucky he didn’t kill her. I couldn’t find the recording, but she claimed her minor children heard it. (Did she let them hear it?)

        She also went for tossing out the prenup that would leave her with only 7million and 1 of their homes. (1 home being in SC that he purchased for her only.)

        In the end she got primary custody of the kids, her 7million, and 2 homes.

        There was talk he left her because their relationship was toxic on both sides and she pursued him being the antagonist, while he just wanted to get away.

        Ultimately there are 2 sides here and Bill didn’t really speak up while she was thought to be a gold digger. He could very well be abusive though.

        I’ll maintain he’s sexy because all I know for sure is he’s incredibly funny and that is sexy.

    MTV would never name a woman Bill Murray’s age ‘sexiest’ anything.

  7. Londerland says:

    No contest, Bill Murray. The only choice for the discerning lady who sleeps four feet above her covers.


  8. MrsBPitt says:

    Umm…while I love Bill Murray…and think he is so funny…sexy is not an adjective I would use to describe him….sorry…

  9. QQ says:

    Metric tons AND Eons better Bill Murray best everything

  10. Janet says:

    He is awesome. I wish I got to see more of him.

  11. RobN says:

    The real question is how much money changed hands to get Adam Levine that cover to begin with.

  12. Liberty says:

    awesome choice. Now I need to re-watch Lost In Translation and Stripes.

  13. Myrto says:

    Um. No. Sorry, while I think Bill Murray is a great actor, he’s not sexy at all. He’s never been good-looking actually. But I suppose a guy can look like him and still be called sexy for some reason. A woman? No way.

  14. Ash says:

    A million times better than Adam Levine! I love Bill Murray, I think he was a babe back when he was in Ghost Busters. Just for the record, I’m 25. This man is awesome, and always had a soft spot for his voice for some weird reason. Go Bill Murray!

  15. pleaseicu says:

    Yes, a thousand times yes! A much, much better choice. Bill Murray is awesome.

  16. Eileen says:

    Finally a smart and hilariously talented winner! Levine makes me want to disinfect myself just looking at him

  17. Hubbahun says:

    A gaadzillion trillion frillion godzillion times better than the repugnant Levine – whenever I see him I think of Tommy Wiseau in The Room (“I did nahhhhhhhhhhhhtt!!”) :P

  18. Mindy says:

    Yes… And that is because Bill Murray is a god and all GODS are sexier than mortals.

  19. smee says:

    Hell and yes. Specifically bc he is a man and AL is a boy. :)

  20. mar says:

    My friend hung out with him here in Florida few times , he smokes a lot of green and he is very funny supposedly

  21. se says:

    100x better choice than Adam Levine. I approve wholeheartedly!

  22. Belly says:

    A squillion times yes. A bit weathered, but funny, talented and intelligent – the knicker dropping trifecta.

    An excised genital wart is sexier than Levine.

  23. Mrs. Darcy says:

    H to the yeah. I would take Bill any day over that tattoed prat. Love him.
