People Magazine has released their pick for 2016’s Sexiest Man Alive, and it’s none other than the lovable, muscleman himself, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
In an interview with People, Johnson described his reaction upon hearing his new title.
“I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” Johnson tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “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.”
The 6’5″ and 245 lbs actor, has been busy with a new baby and as the star of Disney’s Moana, and admits that being comfortable in his own skin “took a lot of time.”
He goes on to tell People what has led to his oozing confidence.
“I’ve made big sweeping changes in my career over the years, which have served me nicely,” he says. “But I feel that the big sweeping changes that happened in my life, in my relationships, of being a dad, of being a partner, and the things that I was and the things that I am, has really lent itself to a confidence.”
As Hollywood’s highest paid actor, 2020’s possible presidential candidate, and this year’s Sexiest Man Alive, it is without a doubt that America can smell what The Rock is cooking!
