Part-Time Pirate, Full-Time Family Man Is First to Be Chosen Twice in One Decade: 2003, 2009

(NEW YORK) – The 2000s appear to be the “Sexiest” decade for Johnny Depp. In this week’s special double issue, PEOPLE magazine announces that the king of cool with the killer cheekbones is the “Sexiest Man Alive” 2009, inheriting the title from Hugh Jackman. Other sexy men in this elite club who have been twice-honored by PEOPLE are George Clooney (2006, 1997) and Brad Pitt (2000, 1995), but not in the same decade. Depp, who was also chosen PEOPLE’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2003, has the unique distinction of sharing that title alone.
Whether it's onscreen in roles like Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise or at home with his family on their private Bahamian island, the 46-year-old father of two with 25 years in show business still reigns as Hollywood's most irresistible iconoclast.
"Johnny Depp has magical powers. He's unlike anyone else," actress Isla Fisher tells PEOPLE. "He's funny, generous and clever. It's just a shame he's so hard on the eyes."

  3. Completely agree! It is really perfect! A true god for me! If i Vanessa (sigh)! Life is so unfair! :(

  4. He so deserved this. Have you heard the stupid stuff on E! They claim people do not agree with the selection. Didn't hear them do that when that suck up Clooney won twice.

  5. Doesn't really matter. Johnny doesn't need polls or contests. He'll be sexy til he's 90 or so.

  6. I'll bet he's mortified by this, God bless him. Nevertheless, he's going to be stunning his whole life long - the bone structure, good character, kind heart and generous spirit all play a part in that.

  7. I am agree, he is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love you Johnny. Analia.
