There goes the crown for the Sexiest Man Alive and this time it is Patrick Dempsey. People magazine started this tradition of honoring the sexiest man from Hollywood every year. It was in 1985 that this ritual began from a random shoutout by one of the editors. From then on Hollywood actors have had their sexy figures on the cover every year.
Many actors have become the face of the magazine over the years. Charismatic, talented, and handsome men are the ones who secure the title. Several actors have secured the spot multiple times while others have garnered the title only once. Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Johnny Depp have won the title twice. And the first one to win the title was Mel Gibson.
