Tour of Duty: As Zack Mayo, the foxy and rebellious wannabe navy pilot in 1982's An Officer and a Gentleman, Richard Gere even managed to make shiny white officer shoes look hot.
Why We Love Him: After more than three decades in the Hollywood limelight, Gere, now 60, just keeps getting better with age. At 50, he nabbed People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive honors. In the 2002 movie musical, Chicago, he showed us he can sing, dance and play the piano. And he's tirelessly crusaded for the Dalai Lama and Tibetan rights, proving that he's got a deep soul, too.
