Johnny Depp is 2009's Sexiest Man Alive - For Real This Time

Johnny Depp is 2009's Sexiest Man Alive - For Real This Time

Johnny Depp takes the cover of People‘s Sexiest Man Alive issue (he also scored the honor in 2003).

Johnny Depp has magical powers. He’s unlike anyone else,” says actress Isla Fisher, who’s married to Sacha Baron Cohen. “He’s funny, generous and clever. It’s just a shame he’s so hard on the eyes.”

Johnny, 46, has two kids with longtime love Vanessa Paradis and plays Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Hugh Jackman was last year’s Sexiest Man Alive.

Other stars who made the cut: Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and the Glee guys. Find out who else made the Sexiest Man Alive list at!

    Yay! I’m happy with that! I’m just glad they didn’t jump on the Twatlight bandwagon. And Isla Fisher isn’t married to Sacha Baron Cohen yet.

    WAAAAAY hotter than Brad Pitt the fossil

  • manda

    Penn badgley made the cut too, third year in a row

  • KAW

    yeaaaaaaaaah *-* MY man

  • sillyme

    Thank goodness it’s him…the way the year was going, I was thinking they were going to pick Obama. I bet probably People wanted to pick Obama, but, given that his ratings are tumbling, the White House decided it wouldn’t be a good idea.

  • nana


    Actually it’s Vanessa Paradis’s man :D
    Great choice PEOPLE !! ;)

  • H.

    Jackson Rathbone. Just sayin’. =P

  • khristi

    @sillyme: Honey, you can get on here and bash our president as much as you’d like-let’s not forget that he is our president so deal with it. We had to put up with the Bush administration for the last 8 years and he’s the one that put us in this mess. Anywho, I am so glad that they put Johnny on the cover instead of, say, Rob Pattinson. Take that Twathards.

  • BBoy

    @khristi: Rob is on thecover. Look again. They need teen gils to buy this crap, c’mon. Oh and btw, if you believe what a magazine tells you who is the sexiest man alive, you’re more stupid than you think.

  • asdfjkl;


  • peggy

    Whatever “IT” is Johnny Depp has it in spades and a career any young actor would want to emulate.

    Great Choice!!

  • tee hee

    @j: I agree . I’m just happy it’s Johnny and not the men who look older than him *cough Clooney and Hag Pitt*

  • Hey now

    My God – Brad Pitt is STILL hot! Sure, he’s looking ‘older’ – but c’mon now, so is Johnny! Still, I’m not angry – Johnny has always been a ‘hottie’ to me and probably will be even when he’s 60! But it isn’t necessary to tear Brad down just to build Johnny up. Both men look damn good for their ages – and anyhow both have now been honored with “Sexiest Man” twice, so I’m content. I do agree, I’m so glad PEOPLE didn’t sell out to the ‘Twilight craziness.’

  • lavender1960

    I am surprised People resisted to the temptation to go Twihard because as much as I like Johnny Depp, he is not going to move those issues like Edward Cullen could have, bwah. Sure he is on the cover in a small photo but the Sexiest Man Alive cover is a collectors item for fans.

  • lurker comes out

  • Janelle

    Wentworth Miller is THE Sexiest Man Alive! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    People agree with me or not Wentworth is MY Sexiest Man Alive ♥
    I don’t need him to be on the cover of the People Magazine to think that!

  • http://deleted sisi

    is this cover photo of him new? After seeing moma pictures I think he needs a emergency haircut and a good dietician

  • tee hee

    why the hell isn’t the link working – – try again and click on enlarge. yuck! Johnny is most definitely sexier than the hag Pitt.

  • Sister Mary

    Johnny is hot ! and a great actor
    and billygoat Brad didn’t even make the list… haa

  • Artemis

    A well-deserved accolade for Johnny Depp…now give him his Oscar! :)

  • cassie

    to tee hee#25, the link works, chill…
    Different people have different definition of “sexy”. Apparently, I share the same definiton with People this year.

    I don’t either!

  • Gag

    Oh, People. Depp? Gross. Greasy stringy haired creep. Trying to avoid the read choices for some reason?

  • Lilly

    Johnny Depp I understand for sexiest man alive. Thank God the Pattison cover was a fake, phew….

  • celia


  • yeah

    Handsome man and exceedingly talented actor, well deserved!

  • uh oh

    Thank God is wasn’t that Rob guy!!!!

  • here we go…

    Just show how Brad owns the as*es here.. Brad has nothing to do with this. And comparing him and Johnny makes no sense. Brad is a good looking man. and will always be.. but the fact that some of you had to bring him up on this thread which is ABOUT DEPP… JUST SHOW HOW PATHETIC YOU PEOPLE ARE.. get over it.. Brad does not give a sh*t about you liking or not liking.. Stop hating.. just sad that you can’t move on and feel the need to talk about him all the time..

    Bravo Johnny well deserved. and I too am glad they did not go with the Twilight fad..

  • idril

    Good for him. I love him but the cover is not flattering.

  • lisa

    @Sister Mary:

    Stop changing names.. you sound like a complete fool. Brad Pitt has nothing to do with this thread..

  • Mac

    yuk. i don’t think he’s hot at all. he is a good actor but hot??? pls…

  • teehee

    @here we go…: don’t get angry because I posted a pic of Hag Pitt look well .. haggard and old. Brad Pitt looks like he could be Johnny’s older step dad or even grandpa.

  • amanda

    Lainey Gossip’s “sources” said it was CONFIRMED to be Robert Pattinson. Lainey is full of BS!! All of her sources are wrong about everything.

  • jenmn

    LOVE him. so happy he got this title!!

  • Gloria

    This is one edition of People I won’t have to buy. Lame choice.

  • hans

    So what has Johnny done in 2009…?

  • celia


    PUBLIC ENEMIES, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus…the upcoming 2010 film Alice in Wonderland…He doesn’t even have to do anything He’s just AWESOME!! And AMAZING!! And so talented!! Every film he’s in gets infinitely better! Johnny Depp is the man. Guys love him and so do we females! Everyone Loves him! That’s why he won and not that lame girly twilight boy. Ryan Reynolds might win in the future after he’s more accomplished.

  • celia

    Oh and I forgot to mention how SEXY he is!! Dayum! That man is so fine!! I can’t believe he’s 46!

  • renee

    People Magazine,
    Please do a little bit more research on the Sexiest Man Alive. Has anyone in your organization seen or heard of Tom Welling. Now that’s one Beautiful, Tall Drink of Water who makes circles around anyone else that has graced your cover.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    @j: brad will never win another sexiest man title so don’t worry.
    but this pick is odd.. johnny depp has nothing going on right now. his last few movies he’s been the same character. they should of gave it to someone new, seriously.

  • peggy

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l:

    Are you dumb or unobservant = Public Enemy – The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus and Alice in Wonderland in 2010. THese characters are nothing alike at all.

    If you are going to disagree that’s fine but at least give the pretense of intelligence.

  • kirsten

    Stop comparing Brad and Johnny. They are both gorgeous and great actors. You don’t .to bash Brad to convince us that Johnny is sexy. It’s rude and stupid

  • http://deleted sisi

    he gained lots of weight.I hope he gives them or…
