After Mel Gibson was called “The Sexiest Man Alive,” following his success that year, becoming the first person with the title, it soon became an annual trend carried on by People magazine. The medal was soon awarded to good-looking celebrities who had a successful year and just came off huge projects. Over the course of a 34-year long standing tradition, we have had 30 winners with four multiple winners - Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Richard Gere, and Johnny Depp. Idris Elba is the latest honoree of the People's title of Sexiest man alive and in honor of his recent title, let's go down memory lane in a bid to see the previous winners of the title.
