Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has been named the Sexiest Man Alive in a poll by People magazine.

 

According to the Telegraph, the Pirates of the Caribbean star reclaimed the title he first won in 2003. He succeeded 2008 winner Hugh Jackman.

 

'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,' said the magazine.

 

Depp has joined the likes of George Clooney and Brad Pitt to have received the honour twice.

 

The magazine described Depp as 'the king of cool with the killer cheekbones.'

 

While Depp sits pretty on top, let's check out the others who made it to the list.

The Canadian actor, who is married to Scarlett Johansson, made it to number two in the magazine's list. The fact that he's beefed up quite nicely in Wolverine may have something to do with it.

 

Plus, the guy is funny smart. Just check out The Proposal to know what we mean.
