People's "Sexiest Man Alive" Through The Years

In honor of People Magazine's recent reveal of the 2017 "Sexiest Man Alive," I have complied a list of every man bestowed this title. That's right . . . every single beautiful, well-deserving hunk all in one scroll. Instead of ranking them—like I was tempted to do—I decided just to provide all of us amazing women with some eye candy, for we all know just how scarce that can be in the "real world." Plus, can there really only be one super sexy man in Hollywood? I think not. 

So, without further ado, here are the "Sexiest MEN Alive" (with some commentary provided by yours truly). Enjoy!

 

Mel Gibson, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1985)

 

 

Yes, he's more than a little controversial, but he has that rugged, charismatic thing going on and I am all for that. Plus, he really knows What Women Want.

 

Mark Harmon, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1986)

 

 

Who knew Gibbs from NCIS was always SO good looking! I mean, talk about a pretty boy.

 

Harry Hamlin, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1987)

 

 

Alright, so I'm not 100% familiar with this guy . . . but he made the list so he must have been something!

 

John F. Kennedy, Jr., "Sexiest Man Alive" (1988)

 

 

There's just something about a Kennedy man . . . their charm, class and Camelot good looks.

 

Sean Connery, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1989)

 

 

Although I have never thought of him as "sexy," he was the James Bond. And his smooth Scottish vocal chords will forever be imitated.

 

Tom Cruise, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1990)

 

 

Trust me, he is absolutely ageless. And if you push aside the whole Scientology thing  . . . he is and always will be BAE.

 

Patrick Swayze, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1991)

 

 

With such a kind heart, this man was just a super down-to-earth guy who left us forever in love. And it helps that he would never put Baby in a corner. 

 

Nick Nolte, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1992)

 

 

Knowing him more as his older self and for his distinct voice, apparently he was pretty good looking, too!

 

Richard Gere, "Sexiest Couple Alive" with Cindy Crawford and "Sexiest Man Alive" (1993, 1999)

 

 

Oh yes, Julia Roberts' right-hand co-star. Definitely a babe . . . with both brown and white hair!

 

There was no one sexy enough in 1994, so . . . 

Brad Pitt, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1995, 2000)

 

 

Yes, yes, YES! Brad Pitt is immortalized as the standard of true sexiness . . . ever since we saw his butt in Troy. *SWOON*

 

Denzel Washington, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1996)

 

 

Funny, talented and good looking? Heck yeah! And how can we not like a man who completely integrated an entire football team?

 

George Clooney, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1997, 2006)

 

 

George Clooney is like a fine wine, only getting even more gorgeous with age. Seriously. His image should be in the encyclopedia under "silver fox."

 

Harrison Ford, "Sexiest Man Alive" (1998)

 

 

He's much older now, but if you look up Indiana Jones then you will understand. *WINK WINK*

 

Pierce Brosnan, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2001)

 

 

Playing James Bond must make you a shoo-in! And remember when he sang in Mamma Mia? YAS!

 

Ben Affleck, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2002)

 

 

With a thing for Jennifers, at least he was quite the looker in his prime. And I suppose now, too . . . being Batman and all.

 

Johnny Depp, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2003, 2009)

 

 

Although slightly strange outside of his characters, I have fallen in love with many of Johnny's roles. Well, maybe not Willy Wonka . . . that would be weird.

 

Jude Law, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2004)

 

 

The Holiday, anyone? Yum! And his looks are accompanied by a true English accent, which makes any person's heart melt.

 

Matthew McConaughey, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2005)

 

 

"Alright, alright, alright!" A timeless babe, his character from How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days made us forever fangirls.

 

Matt Damon, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2007)

 

 

He most certainly has that super-cute-puppy-thing going for him. But don't let that fool you . . . he showed the world his bad a$$ery as Jason Bourne. 

 

Hugh Jackman, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2008)

 

 

Australian hunk? YAS! Being the true gentleman that he is, I so swoon for him . . . HARD.

 

Ryan Reynolds, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2010)

 

 

He was GOALS ever since I watched The Proposal . . . and he just seems to keep getting better looking, eh? (He's Canadian)

 

Bradley Cooper, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2011)

 

 

Talk about a babe! Is it weird that I had a total thing for him in his movie The Hangover? I mean, he was a teacher . . . 

 

Channing Tatum, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2012)

 

 

Apparently some people don't think this hunk is cute? I mean, WHAT!? I can watch She's The Man over and over and over . . .

 

Adam Levine, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2013)

 

 

Okay, so he's inked . . . but this man makes them look damn good. And he can sing, people!

 

Chris Hemsworth, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2014)

 

 

He was casted as the God of Thunder . . . enough said.

 

David Beckham, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2015)

 

 

Well-dressed and athletic? And more tattoos! I definitely swoon for those who know how to kick a ball around.

 

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2016)

 

 

What a total muscular hunk! Look at him . . . holding puppies . . . in a wet t-shirt.

 

Blake Shelton, "Sexiest Man Alive" (2017)

 

 

Alas, our most recent "Sexiest Man Alive." Although I don't think he's incredibly cute, I do ship his and Adam Levine's bromance . . . which in itself is cute.

 

Now, all we can do is wait in anticipation for the next crowning of "Mr. Sexy." *CROSSES FINGERS FOR RYAN GOSLING*
