Ryan Reynolds says ugly men can still date gorgeous women.

The Hollywood hunk believes less-than-handsome guys can still grab themselves a hot girl if they are charming or talented.

Ryan - who is married to screen beauty Scarlett Johansson - told the German edition of In Touch magazine: "For men it's not really important to be good looking. Charisma and skills are a lot more important."

The 34-year-old actor doesn't care that people think he is attractive and is adamant people who define themselves by their looks are misguided.

Ryan - who was crowned People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in 2008 -said: "So what if people think I'm sexy? If I would define myself through that I would be a complete idiot."

Ryan has also lifted the lid on what he finds attractive about Scarlett, insisting her sense of humour and modest personality are the things he loves most about her.

He explained: "Contrary to a lot of other actresses she doesn't take everything so serious und is able to laugh about herself. Women with humour are just sexy."
