No surprises here: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is People's Sexiest Man Alive 2016.
News of Johnson's honor was shared via People Tuesday morning. It was the actor's "big heart" that ultimately crowned him, according to the site. Johnson also announced the good news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, though he mostly discussed how wonderful it is to be a father, like the Sexiest Man Alive that he is.
When the 44-year-old first heard he'd be receiving the title, he said, "That’s awesome."
"And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is," Johnson told People. "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" action star is best known for his kind, goodhearted nature, though the nearly 250 lbs of pure muscle is certainly a head-turner. It's no wonder he was chosen as Sexiest Man Alive this year — in our eyes, he's always up there. So it's even more interesting to learn he didn't always have the confidence he does now. Johnson told People it "took a lot of time" to get there.
"I was doing a lot of things that I shouldn’t have," Johnson recalled of his adolescence in Hawaii. "I was getting arrested multiple times, but at the same time, always very respectful to my teachers and elders. I was unsure of who I was and who I wanted to be."
He's come a long way since then. The former WWE star is now the world's highest-paid actor.
Though he's always dedicated to his feature films like Baywatch, Fast 8, Jumanji, and Moana, the father of two is a partner and a dad first and foremost.
Johnson's second daughter Jasmine was born in December, while his first daughter Simone is now 15 years old. Girlfriend Lauren Hashian also couldn't be any more supportive of her boyfriend's success.
Congratulations to an incredibly deserving Sexiest Man Alive.
