So what if he’s played a scissor-handed Frankenstein, a campy swashbuckler with capped gold teeth, and a transvestite or two? People magazine still thinks ”Pirates of the Caribbean” star Johnny Depp is hotter than hot. The magazine named the actor their Sexiest Man Alive in this week’s issue.

The 40-year-old father of two bested some hunky competition to take the Sexiest mantle. The rest of the top 10 includes Brad Pitt, Ashton Kutcher, George Clooney, Lenny Kravitz, Justin Timberlake, Hugh Grant, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Denzel Washington and Colin Farrell.

Sadly, the world’s most swoon-worthy man isn’t on the market. Depp and French actress-singer Vanessa Paradis, 30, have been together for five years. But on the bright side, Colin Farrell is almost always available.
