Anthony Weiner One Of Cosmopolitan's Real-Life Bachelors In 1996 (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

This just in: Twitter-oversharer Anthony Weiner once posed for (or alternately, sent in a glamour shot to) the pages of Cosmopolitan, selected as one of the glossy's 101 real-life bachelors back in 1996.

The congressman, then-31 years old and a New York City councilman with an apparent penchant for plaid blazers, also participated in a short Q&A. Some key excerpts...

First Lady: "Someone smarter than me. I want to be sucked back into the throes of love--isn't that what everybody really wants?"

On a day off, you'd catch me... "I hate days off, but I guess I'd try on clothes I couldn't afford."

Favorite cartoon character: "Newt Gingrich...for obvious reasons."

Weiner isn't the only politician to pop up in Cosmo's archives. Last year, Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts' "America's Sexiest Man" spread surfaced. Check it out here.
