Meanwhile, Depp who recently finished filming

has no plans to reclaim the honour for a third time. “I think I can work my way forward, but will I try for it again? No. I worked so hard to gain that title,” he said.

Reynolds, 34, was named the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ by


in November but insisted that he had to face a lot of ridicule from his friends, family and wife Scarlett Johansson.
