Actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has just been named the People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive!
Johnson says he told the publication it was "awesome” to be selected. "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.”
When asked what makes him sexy, Johnson joked, "This is the kind of question that gets me into trouble.” He went on to answer, "Ah, a sense of humor. And I think probably just not trying to be sexy and just being cool and confident in your movies. I think with a lot of my fans, I’ve gotten to a very, very cool place where there’s a direct line between the man they know off-screen and the man they see on-screen.”
Though the Sexiest Man Alive title is a big honor for any man, Dwayne is well-prepared for all the jokes from his friends. He said, "It’s coming now, I can just imagine how it’s going to be. “But see, here’s the thing, they give me grief, but they all wish. They all wish.”
On Tuesday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Ellen surprised The Rock with the Sexiest Man Alive announcement, revealing a first look at his cover. Watch!
The night before the announcement, "Extra's" Terri Seymour caught up with The Rock at the premiere of "Moana" in Hollywood, where he played coy about the title. During the interview, he even saved Terri from a red-carpet fall. Watch!
