Correct Answer: Mel Gibson

The Mad Max star – 29-years old and touted as "The Dish from Down Under" – graced the cover of PEOPLE's first Sexiest Man Alive issue in 1985. Recent trouble with the law notwithstanding, the 50-year-old father of seven transformed himself from an Aussie beefcake into an Oscar-winning director (Braveheart) and mastermind behind one of the most successful films of all time (The Passion of the Christ).
