People's Sexiest Men Alive, ranked

Yardbarker Logo By Sean Keane of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 31: Since People magazine started giving out the honor in 1985, there have been 29 different Sexiest Men Alive. Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Richard Gere have all won twice, although Gere’s first win was as part of People’s only “Sexiest Couple Alive” award, along with Cindy Crawford. Some winners are still sexy even now, while others were trendier selections or were sexy in a down year for attractiveness, or just had a movie coming out — and a persuasive publicist. Now that Idris Elba has joined the ranks of People-certified Sexy Men, it's time to ask whose sexiness has stood the test of time and which award makes you say, “Man alive, how did they ever pick Nick Nolte?”
