Not many people could argue this ranking. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been named the sexiest man alive. Amen!
On Tuesday morning, NBC’s Today announced that Johnson landed People magazine’s most talked about ranking of 2016.
The actor responded to the big news via Twitter very early this morning, writing: “Still up at 4am trainin’ hard & takin’ care of my babies.. sexily;). Thank U @people & all the fans. Grateful for the luv! #SexiestManAlive.”
We’d say all that training is one good reason why the star is officially the sexiest man on the planet.
When discussing the honor, Johnson shared, “That’s awesome. And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” Johnson said of the big news. “And then I thought, ‘Wow, we’ve pretty much reached the pinnacle.’ I’m not quite too sure where we go from here. I’ve done it all, this is it.”
Sure the 44-year-old is totally sweet, incredibly talented and has muscles for the GAWDS, but according to the actor, his beauty rests in two major things: His skin and sense of humor.
“I think probably just not trying to be sexy and just being cool and confident in your movies,” the Jumanji actor explained. “I think with a lot of my fans, I’ve gotten to a very, very cool place where there’s a direct line between the man they know off-screen and the man they see on-screen.”
As for the skin, the father of two suggested, “We’ve only got one face. You’ve got to take care of it. So I exfoliate.”
It’s worth noting that if there were an award for sexiest DILF of 2016, the trophy would instinctually be handed to the star, as well. Just saying.
Johnson joins an amazing group of men who have also been named sexiest man alive, including David Beckham (2015), Chris Hemsworth (2014), Adam Levine (2013) and Channing Tatum (2012).
