It’s official – Paul Rudd is this year People‘s sexiest man alive! On Tuesday, the 52-year-old actor was crowned with the title of when People revealed the cover of its issue on November 22nd. “I have an awareness, enough to know that when people hear that I would be selected for this, they would say, ‘What?’,” He told the publication about the honor. “This is not false humility. There are so many people who should get this before me.”
He continued, “I mean, I’m going to lean hard into it. I’m going to own this. I’m not going to try to be like, ‘Oh, I’m so modest.’ “But all my friends will destroy me, and I expect them to do so. And that’s why they’re my friends.”
Paul will contribute Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Apple TV +’s latest series The Shrink Next Door later in the month. “When I think of myself, I think of myself as a man and a father, as if I am that,” he told the magazine. “I just hang out with my family when I’m not working. That’s what I like best.
The actor now joins the ranks of previous honors, including Michael B. Jordan (2020), John Legend (2019), Idris Elba (2018), Blake Shelton (2017), Dwayne Johnson (2016) and more. Congratulations to Paul!
