Paulina Porizkova: Husband Ric Ocasek Sexier Than George Clooney

Paulina Porizkova is one of the most beautiful women we've ever seen, but as far as she's concerned, George Clooney is no match for her husband, rocker Ric Ocasek.

"I am married to the dude from The Cars. Or that's what they always say," Paulina tells me. She agrees that, although Ric is a talented guy, he isn't exactly Clooney in the looks department. "Thank God! He's so much better looking!" she says.

At age 18, Paulina, who is from the country formerly known as Czechoslovakia, was the first Central European woman to land the coveted cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She went on to become one of the most successful models in the business. In 1989, Paulina married Ocasek, lead singer for The Cars, whom she met during filming of the music video for the Cars song "Drive." The couple has two children.

"Well, I guess I have a different kind of taste. I don't go for pretty boys -- they don't age well. Have you noticed this?" Paulina says. "But the reason I may take George Clooney is not for his looks, but because he's really smart and funny. I will close my eyes if I have to. ... My husband is the sexiest man in the world, 27 years later!"

Well, we happen to think you're one of the sexiest and smartest women in the world, Paulina.
