Is Six Degrees of Ken Jeong about to take off as the new Hollywood parlor game?
The Hangover‘s breakout star has worked with his share of PEOPLE’s Sexiest Men Alive – paging Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper – and the actor says he’s not far from becoming his own version of the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, in which players attempt to link Bacon to every other actor on planet earth.
“I may have possibly, yes, worked with some of the Sexiest Men Alive. I might be the Kevin Bacon of Sexiest Men,” Jeong said jokingly to PEOPLE at Tuesday night’s premiere of his new animated 3D movie Turbo, starring Reynolds. (It opens nationally July 17.)
“I’ve got, like, different degrees of Sexiest Man [in my life].”
But out of the two men, Reynolds and Cooper (who starred with Jeong in all three Hangover movies), who would Jeong say really owns the crown?
“They’re both incredibly sexy. I mean, what’s a girl to do, in terms of choosing between them?” Jeong says. “I’m really stressed out. I’m getting verklempt and about to faint surrounded by all this sexiness! I don’t know [why] It’s because they’re so sexy I can barely read my lines.”
Both Cooper and Reynolds have lost their shirts in their films, but, sizing them up, Jeong says that comparing their abs is a race too close to call.
“They both have great abs! Yeah, I love them both, so yeah. I know, the best non-answer ever, right?”
