Johnny Depp has taken People‘s sexiest man alive title for the second time in a decade, beating out Twilight hottie Robert Pattinson for the honor. People said the magazine pondered giving the award to New Moon star Robert Pattinson, but felt Johnny Depp’s longevity as a heartthrob lent the actor more weight.
“The thing about Johnny is he has proven his sexiness over the years,” People editor Julie Jordan told Today‘s Natalie Morales. Jordan said Depp was the only actor who “can pull of the sexiness behind such bizarre characters as Willie Wonka and the Mad Hatter.”
Johnny Depp joins Brad Pitt and George Clooney as the only other two-time winner of People’s sexiest man alive title. Depp recently signed on to star in a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, reprising his role as the flamboyant Captain Jack Sparrow.
Congrats Johnny! We love our RPatz, but you’ve been the object of many tasty fantasies way longer!
