Johnny Depp, People Magazine, Sexiest Man Alive


Hugh Jackman, it's time to pass the baton.

Johnny Depp has been named People's 2009 Sexiest Man Alive.

He joins Brad Pitt and George Clooney as only the third to earn this prestigious title for a second time—Captain Jack Sparrow won in 2003 as well.

Too bad most guessers in the Twitterverse were completely offtrack. The magazine offered clues over the past few days, promising the man on the stands would have roots in a foreign country, has proposed at least once and was taller than Ryan Seacrest. All signs pointed to Robert Pattinson or Ryan Reynolds.

But the magazine tends to choose an older, more established star, and the 46-year-old definitely still has it goin' on.

The issue goes on sale Friday.
