People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive title is quite the honor. It is reserved only for celebrities who are really handsome and doing really well career-wise. The first man to ever receive this honor was Mel Gibson and that was way back in 1985 when he was just a hunk with a killer career. Now we all see him very differently! Since then, plenty of men have received this honor; however, we’re not convinced that not all of them were worthy of it. Here are 7 famous men who were selected as People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive who we think were unworthy of the honor.
7. Nick Nolte
Nick Nolte is considered anything but attractive these days. In 1992, however, it was a different story. People magazine gave him the title of “Sexiest Man Alive” and we think it may have been a mistake. Sure he was talented with rugged good looks, but we personally think his days as any kind of sex symbol ended in the ‘80s. Why does People keep giving this honor to people who are well past their prime?
Nolte has had his fair share of struggles. In 2002, he was arrested for driving under the influence and the mug shot that police took looked pretty frightening. From the Hawaiian shirt that he was wearing to his wild hair, he looked like he had seen better days – much better days. Thankfully he was able to get past his troubles and get his life back on track. These days, he looks as though he has a new lease on life. He’ll never be voted Sexiest Man Alive again, but that’s okay!
