NEW YORK (AP) — Brad Pitt — he's the sexiest man alive, again.

That's according to People magazine, which bestowed the title on him in its special issue on newsstands Friday.

The 36-year-old actor becomes the first person honored twice since People began the annual naming in 1985.

Pitt was previously cited in 1995, when he was one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors. He married ``Friends'' star Jennifer Aniston in July.

``Sexiness isn't about the single bachelor and good looks,'' said Pitt's ``Meet Joe Black'' castmate, Marcia Gay Harden. ``There's something gorgeous about his commitment.''

Last year's honoree was Richard Gere; previous winners have included Sean Connery, Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington and George Clooney.
