Johnny Depp Named The ‘Sexiest Man Alive’


Congratulations are in order for hottie actor Johnny Depp who has just been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. As you may be aware, Depp also just became the highest paid actor ever after securing a $33 million paycheck to appear in Pirates of the Caribbean 4 … so needless to say, he is having a good week. Here is Johnny on the cover of the new issue of People magazine which pays tribute to Hollywood’s sexiest men:

Break out the Bordeaux, the whoopee cushions and the bangin’ Keith Richards guitar solos, because the 2009 Sexiest Man Alive party is officially under way. Bringing the fun with him wherever he goes – whether it’s onscreen in fizzy roles like Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise or at home with his family on their private Bahamian island – is just one reason why Johnny Depp, who also scored the honor in 2003, has joined an elite club of two-time SMA title holders (only Brad Pitt and George Clooney have matched the feat). At 46, the father of two still reigns as Hollywood’s most irresistible iconoclast; as one-of-a-kind as his beloved 15-year-old boots and as smoldering as his favorite Cuban cigars.

Considering how sexy Johnny really is, I’m surprised this is the photo that People decided to use for their cover … they deffo could’ve found a sexier photo, don’t you think? As you may recall, People selected Hugh Jackman as the Sexiest Man Alive last year … but there are 109 other sexy men who made the cut this year along with Johnny. After the jump, check out a few photos of some of the other dudes who were selected by People magazine this year …

Not that it’s a very difficult task but People really does a great job of picking out the sexiest of the sexy. I mean, Jerry O’Connell in the speedo is proof positive ;) I’m also glad to see some of my faves — David Beckham, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and the Glee guys — also made the cut. Make sure you pick up this special issue of People magazine to see all the sexy men who have been named among the sexiest of the year. Did your fave guy make the cut?


  • F

    I agree with you Trent, they could have picked a better photo of Johnny. I’ve seen sexier shots of him for sure.

  • leighton


    im definitely going to buy this

  • Illise

    I agree with everyone but rob lol

  • Winona

    LOVE the pic of Jerry O’Connell – so random! And three cheers definitely for the men of Glee!

  • z

    I completely agree with Trent and F! I have seen, stared and drooled over sexier pictures of him lol =P! But I will definitely pick this issue up when it hits the stands!

  • Katie

    I just don’t get the Johnny Depp thing…Any of the other guys in the big photo group would have been a better choice to me. I absolutely love the random speedo photo!

  • Yoka

    Nick Cannon??? Really???

  • So true, Trent! Of all the GORGEOUS photos of JD, they pick that one?! lol! Regardless, all my faves in one magazine is enough for me to go out and buy it!

  • random00b

    Where’s Alexander Skarsgaard (Eric in “True Blood”)?

  • Christine

    uhmm nick cannon and johnny depp don’t really it for me… but other than that it looks gooooood!

  • CoCo

    BA HA HA HA HA!!! What’s with the Chester the Molester grin?!

  • Annie

    Johnny Depp grosses me out. There are sooo many better choices out there! (Jake Gyllenhaal, duh!)

  • C

    I agree with People and i think Johnny D is sexy in any pic, its the way he carries himself, i don’t think the pic has to be overly sexy for him to be seen as sexy…one question thou is where is Taylor Lautner, is he not considered since its young?

  • Heather B

    Helllllooooo men of Glee!!!

  • nicole

    i love when this issue comes out.
    i always love me some Johnny :)
    and that pic of Jerry is awsome lol

  • TVKimmy

    I do NOT like that picture of JD. He looks kinda weirdly bloated and photoshopped.

    But, I love me some Ryan Reynolds. YUM!!!

  • Lulu

    Weird pic of JD!! Not digging that. LOVE Jerry’s pic… makes me LOL..

    And SERIOUSLY… Nick Cannon?!?! Dude…. someone got paid money under the table… I call BS!

  • Brooke

    Does anyone else think that’s a really bad picture of Bradley Cooper? He looks like the photgrapher just said “be sexy”…

  • Ally

    Ha, the picture of Jerry O’Connell is hilarious :). Totally agree about the cover though. How do you make Johnny so blah? I love that the Glee boys were recognized.

  • Kendra

    Bradley Cooper looks like he’s going to jump out and bite you..Which..I wouldn’t mind..I think Johnny Depp doesn’t look super sexy, but he looks really sweet and approachable..I like it, even if it isn’t his best pic..David Beckham is a given..He’s the hottest man ever to me!

  • AmyM

    the star over Lady Palin’s face made me laugh hard. keep up the good work.

  • Chivonne

    I like Mr. Depp dirty best (:

  • krissy

    Is Ryan Kwanten on the list? I agree with Random that Alexander Skarsgaard should be on the list, but Ryan is the hottest man EVER in my opinion! Ahhhh…love all the hotness.

  • PixiesBassline

    Not the best pic of Johnny – but DAMN… he IS a seXXXy muthafucka!!!!!

  • alana

    #1 THATS the picture they pick of johnny depp??? wowwww. really? Not is that not the hottest picture of him but it might be the WORST picture Ive ever seen of him. Aw but Johnny is so hott tho so congrats to him.

    #2 Ugh when is Will Smith going to be the sexiest man alive?????? All the years the ONLY black man has been Denzel…in 1992 Nick Nolte was sexiest man…NICK NOLTE. i mean i want some chocolate in there! or latino. cmon people magazine!

  • I like Johnny OK, he’s not the sexiest man alive but oh well good for him! These things are bought and paid for anyways, so really…who cares?

  • I agree with the “fine” people at People. :)


  • persephone

    i feel bad, my baby alex skarsgard is not there.. its funny, i saw a topic in aother forum and they thought rpatz is the sexiest man alive. apparently, it was a fake cover photo of people.

  • Vicky

    That pic of Jerry is… strangely insanely hot. Damn.

  • velcrodots

    I love the pic of Jerry, everyone is all serious and then there’s Jerry in his budgie smuggler!

  • KatrinSedai

    Oh Johnny! My all-time fave actor! Agree the photo isn’t the best, but I guess we don’t need a picture to know how sexy he really is!

    And Ryan Reynolds. Woot! That smile is ridiculously adorable.

  • Julie

    I was totally rooting for Skarsgaard also! He’s number one for me. But I’m really glad to see the Glee guys there.

  • KatrinSedai

    And PS… What the hell is Nick Cannon doing in there? >>

  • Emjaydee

    God, David Beckham is hot, there is no doubt about it… but he looks SO much better when he has his hair shaved like in this pic.

  • Chimera

    Not that I don’t completely agree with Johnny as the Sexist Man Alive I am not sure why it would be him this year. He hasn’t done much this past year. I also agree that the photo is just nice not as sexy as Johnny can truly be.
    I thought with the Vampire craze it may have been Rob Pattinson or Alex Skarsgaard. Oh well I guess Johnny will do!! lol

  • Jazz

    My fave guy made the cut, RDJ, woot!

  • Fashionista

    Just peed a little. ahhh Mark Salling! These are some sexy mothafackas here!!

  • jovanna
