Senator Scott Brown shies from posing for The Hill's "50 Most Beautiful"
What's the matter, Scott Brown? We sure didn't take you for the blushing type.
The junior senator from Massachusetts and (maybe you've heard?) Cosmopolitan's 1982 "Sexiest Man" centerfold has been named one of the "50 Most Beautiful People on Capitol Hill" in the Hill newspaper's annual survey, set for release Wednesday morning. But we're told that unlike most of the honorees, Brown declined to give an interview or pose for a picture.
His press office did not return our calls to explain his bout of shyness. The senator mostly laughed off the Cosmo spread when it resurfaced during his campaign last year -- he said that he paid his way through law school by modeling -- but maybe a guy gets tired of being objectified after a while. Nothing to be ashamed of, though; he's in good company. Five other lawmakers made the list: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.), Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), Rep. Duncan D. Hunter (R-Calif.) and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.). (Hunter also declined to pose for the Hill.)
Most of the list is made up of staffers, though, and the Hill does a great service by finally showcasing the alpha-male aide of the year: Ben Dunham, 31, best known as the staffer who (briefly) won the heart of "Mad Men" star January Jones. They met during her enviro-lobbying visit last fall and dated for about four months. He's discreet about his brush with celebrity. "I got a lot of weird e-mails," he told the Hill, "and the whole experience convinced me that I never want to be famous."
