Ellen DeGeneres makes Dev Patel Sexiest Man Alive 2017

"I'll give it to my mom, and she'll put it at the entrance to her house," Patel responded, joking, "That's never gonna happen."

British-Indian actor Dev Patel,26, with an awkward laugh, received the enticing compliment bestowed on him by Ellen DeGeneres.

 Lion star Dev Patel visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday to promote his new film, but left with a new title for himself. Ellen, being overly loving, couldn’t help but nudge the Golden Globe-nominated actor toward a different accolade — Sexiest Man Alive!

“Because you look so good, and people are saying you look buff and everything, I had this made for you…” Ellen DeGeneres said, before presenting him with a fake magazine cover of him as People’s annual hot guy honoree. “You can hand this out … It’ll help your career!”

“I’ll give it to my mom, and she’ll put it at the entrance to her house,” Patel responded, joking, “That’s never gonna happen.”

“This is very awkward,” the actor laughingly added, leading DeGeneres to quip back, “You don’t understand Hollywood.”
