·1 min read

PAUL Rudd has been crowned as 2021’s “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine.

Rudd, known for his starring roles in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” films, “This is 40” and “Clueless,” was revealed as this year’s winner on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” this week.

The actor told the magazine in an issue out Friday, Nov. 12, that some will be surprised by him receiving the honor.

But of course, Rudd won’t turn down the honor. He jokingly hopes the new title will grant him an invitation to “those sexy dinners” with George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Michael B. Jordan—all recent winners.

Other past honorees include John Legend, Dwayne Johnson, Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Adam Levine, Channing Tatum and David Beckham.

The actor reached superstar status in a slew of Marvel superhero films including “Ant-Man,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “Avengers: Endgame.” He’ll star in the upcoming “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” and appears alongside Will Ferrell in the new Apple TV+ series “The Shrink Next Door” which premiered Nov. 12.

Rudd, 52, said his wife was initially “stupefied” after he told her the news. The couple has two kids, 17-year-old Jack and Darby who is 12. (AP)
