Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Is People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2016

Nov 15, 2016

People magazine has chosen former WWE champion turned Hollywood superstar Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson as this year's Sexiest Man Alive.

Johnson, who has lent his voice to the upcoming Disney movie Moana, has joined a long list of handsome men, including David Beckham (2015), Chris Hemsworth (2014), Adam Levine (2013) and Channing Tatum (2012).

When he heard about his new title, the 6.5ft and 245lbs star told People that he thought it was "awesome" to be named the Sexiest Man Alive. "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," he said.

'The Rock' was revealed to be the world's highest-paid actor earlier this year; he earned $64.5 million in the year ending June 1, doubling what he earned the previous year. He is a father-of-two and is in a longterm relationship with girlfriend Lauren Hashian.
