Who Won People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive?

Bradley Cooper - Sexiest Man in 2011

Since 1985, People Magazine has periodically selected one male celebrity to be named the "Sexiest Man Alive." Recipients had been named sporadically (there was no winner in 1994) until 1997. Since then, the Sexiest Man Alive is usually announced in late November or early December.

Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Richard Gere and Johnny Depp are the only two time winners of People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.
