PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive certainly knows what The Rock is cooking.
Dwayne Johnson has been named this year’s Sexiest Man Alive by PEOPLE. The news was announced Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, video of which is below.
How did Johnson react when he found out about the honor? “I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” he told PEOPLE. “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.”
Johnson also commented on the honor via his Twitter account.
The Furious 7 star is the latest in a long line of chiseled and charming men to have the honor bestowed upon them, joining last year’s honoree David Beckham, and past men such as Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, and Channing Tatum.
Johnson also has the unofficial title of Busiest Man Alive, considering the number of high-profile projects he has set for release over the next year. Beginning on Nov. 23, the actor can be heard flexing his singing muscles in Disney’s animated film Moana, before then dominating 2017 with Fast 8, Baywatch, Jumanji, and the third season of his HBO comedy Ballers. If that weren’t enough, Johnson said this week that he wouldn’t rule out a run for president in 2020.
