Throughout 2007, ten of the richest and most famous men in the country have dominated Access Hollywood.
We’ve covered them for the good things thatthey’ve done and some for their personal bumps in the road.
Our Top 10 Men of 2007 begins with the adorable king of daytime.
Regis Philibin scored not only a standing ovation, but scored the 10th most talked about spot on Access Hollywood this year, snagging 15 stories as we followed his triple bypass heart surgery.
David Hasselhoff slid into the number 9 position, earning 16 Access Hollywood stories — including his caught-on-tape drunken antics, and his bitter child custody battle with ex-wife Pamela Bach.
|Isaiah Washington snagged 18 stories in ’07 and took our number 8 spot. He made news for the use of an anti-gay slur, allegedly aimed at his former “Grey’s Anatomy” co-star T.R. Knight. Isaiah was eventually fired from the show.|
What a sweet journey for number 7 — Justin Timberlake. From movies to music, we did 19 stories on JT.
|Coming in at number 5 was Tom Cruise, who hit Access Hollywood golden time with 21 stories|
Tom was however, “Trumped” – he and “The Donald” tied at the number 5 slot.
Number 4 was America’s favorite bachelor – George Clooney.
Broken bones were no biggie for Clooney. His motorcycle mishap in September with girlfriend Sarah Larson was just one of 22 stories we showed on Access Hollywood.
|Number 3 was one hot ticket – British invasion soccer star David Beckham. The boy with the bod headlined 23 stories on Access in 2007.|
Proud papa Larry Birkhead took control in our number 2 spot.
The late Anna Nicole Smith’s former boyfriend, and father to her only daughter – Dannielynn, powered through 2007, with 37 stories.
And our number 1? Brad Pitt.
Who wasn’t enthralled, mesmerized and frankly entertained by watching Brad Pitt, the doting father, trotting the globe and putting his humanitarian efforts to good use.
From helping to rebuild New Orleans, to his travels from Prague to New York with his family in tow, Brad Pitt topped them all with 45 stories in 2007.
