Now they're rating the popularity of celebrities' children

Suri Cruise is the most popular kid on the playground. The 2-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes tops Forbes.com's second annual list of "Hollywood's 10 Hottest Tots." Forbes.com, which ranked celebrity children 5 and younger based on media attention and their parents' popularity, said Suri — known for her stylish outfits and haircut — popped up in more news articles and blogs than her peers. Three of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's six children made the list: Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 2, is in second place after coming in first last year; Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 3, is in third place; and Pax Jolie-Pitt, 4, is fourth on the list. Rounding out the top 10: Sam Alexis Woods, daughter of Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin; Cruz Beckham, son of David and Victoria Beckham; Matilda Rose Ledger, daughter of Michelle Williams and the late Heath Ledger; David Banda, son of Madonna and Guy Ritchie; Sean Preston Federline, son of Britney Spears and Kevin Federline; and Sam Sheen, daughter of Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen.

Jackman is rated sexiest

Actor, singer and dancer Hugh Jackman, who turned 40 on Oct. 12, has been crowned People's Sexiest Man Alive, succeeding Matt Damon. The native of Sydney, Australia, was born to do musicals. He got raves in '98 as the lead in a London production of Oklahoma! Nicole Kidman says the 6-foot-2 actor was so hot on the set of their flick, Australia, he "left people stammering, 'Oh ... my ... God.' ... Women's jaws drop when Hugh walks into a room."
