Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson named People's 'Sexiest Man Alive'

By Associated Press, 16 November 2016

NEW YORK (AP) — Former WWE champ Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson can add People's "Sexiest Man Alive" title to his list of accomplishments.

The wrestler-turned-actor was crowned this year's winner Tuesday morning. Dwayne Johnson attends the premiere of his film, "Central Intelligence" in Los Angeles.


This just means I'm still up at 4am trainin' hard, takin' care of my babies, drivin' my pick up truck and tellin' a few dirty/nerdy jokes... extremely sexily of course. Huge THANK YOU you to the entire hard working and very cool staff at @People as well as all the fans worldwide. I'm honored and grateful for the luv! Remember, sexy isn't something you "try and be". Sexy happens naturally when you're comfortable just being yourself. Trust me, I'm an expert at this. (plus I read the "how to be sexy and a great kisser" guide when I was 8). #SexiestManAlive

Johnson was named "Sexiest Man Alive" by People magazine on Nov. 15, 2016. The 44-year-old tells the magazine that the honor means he has "pretty much reached the pinnacle."


Johnson is set to discuss his new status with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Tuesday.

Last year's winner was British soccer standout David Beckham. Other recent winners include Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine and Channing Tatum.

Johnson has lent his voice to a character in the animated Disney film "Moana," which hits theaters next week.
