Washington remains one of the most respected actors on the planet. However, he was arguably in his prime in the ’90s thanks to many outstanding performances. He enjoyed hit after hit throughout the decade and this culminated in an incredible milestone. Washington became the first non-white man to win the People’s Sexiest Man Alive award.
It might not feel like the most prestigious accolade but it was groundbreaking at the time. Washington deserved it too because his smile still melts hearts. Amazingly, he has maintained his success over the past 30 years since then. He could teach the Dallas Cowboys a thing or two about consistency.
