NEW YORK, Nov. 18 (UPI) --
People magazine has named Hollywood film star Johnny Depp
the 2009 Sexiest Man Alive.
Depp, 46, is best known for his work on TV's "21 Jump Street," as well as in the quirky movies "Edward Scissorhands," "Ed Wood" and "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," and the "Pirates of the Caribbean" blockbuster franchise.
The father of two was previously declared People's Sexiest Man Alive in 2003.
Brad Pitt and George Clooney are the only other men with the distinction of winning the title twice, the magazine noted.
Last year's winner was Australian actor Hugh Jackman.
