Dwayne Johnson, popularly called ‘The Rock’ has been named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, succeeding the British soccer player, David Beckham.
NBC’s Today announced Johnson had received the title during Tuesday’s broadcast.
The actor was reportedly flattered to receive the call. “I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” he says. “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.”
What makes Johnson sexy? “This is the kind of question that gets me into trouble,” he jokes. In all seriousness, he says “a sense of humor” is probably the sexiest thing about himself.
“And I think probably just not trying to be sexy and just being cool and confident in your movies,” the Jumanji actor adds.
“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.”
“It starts with the skin,” he says with a laugh.
“We’ve only got one face. You’ve got to take care of it. So I exfoliate.”
