According to early reports, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been determined by a team of sexiness experts to be the Sexiest Man Alive. People, the same "magazine" that recently released its Most Deplorable Man Alive issue, made the call early Tuesday morning. For Johnson, the latest honor is all in a day's work:
"I said, 'That's awesome,'" Johnson recalled when asked how he reacted to beating out all the other living sexy people. "And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is. 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."
2016, despite being unconscionably shitty in every other possible way, has been pretty kind to Johnson. In addition to outing an alleged "candy ass" while shooting next year's Fast 8, Johnson also became one of the highest-paid actors on TV and the highest-paid film actor:
Fast 8 has dominated the pre-2017 chatter, but the F. Gary Gray film is far from the only thing on Johnson's schedule. Dude is also hitting us with an R-rated Baywatch movie stacked with David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson cameos and a new Jumanji co-starring Kevin Hart and Jack Black.
