Matt Damon wants Hugh Jackman to be named the sexiest man of 2009.

The 38-year-old actor - who was named Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine in 2007 - was happy to hand over the mantle to Hugh last year, and is hoping the 'Australia' actor triumphs again.

Matt said: "Maybe he can be the first to do it back-to-back. I'll start campaigning for that."

Matt is equally as outspoken about the men he doesn't want to see bestowed with the accolade.

The 'Oceans 11' star joked it would be a travesty if his co-stars in the 2001 movie Brad Pitt, who triumphed in 1995 and 2000, or George Clooney, who bagged the top spot in 1996 and 2007, won the honour.

He laughed: "It would be absolutely intolerable, so, no, I don't want either of those guys to three-peat!"

Last year, Hugh beat James Bond actor Daniel Craig into second place, with star of US TV show 'Mad Men' John Hamm coming in third.

'High School Musical' heartthrob Zac Efron and 'Lipstick Jungle' hunk Robert Buckley rounded off the top five.
