DWAYNE ‘THE Rock’ John­son has been cho­sen to be Peo­ple Mag­a­zine’s Sex­i­est Man Alive for 2016.

The 44-year-old ac­tion star will re­ceive the an­nual hon­our and will be the cover star of the pub­li­ca­tion’s spe­cial is­sue, ac­cord­ing to web­site Gos­sip Cop.

John­son – who still wres­tles part-time for WWE – has been picked for his mus­cu­lar physique, chis­elled good looks and win­ning per­son­al­ity.

Since giv­ing up wrestling full-time in 2004, the ac­tor has gone on to be­come one of Hol­ly­wood’s most bank­able stars with roles in hits such as Pain & Gain, Cen­tral In­tel­li­gence and the Fast and Fu­ri­ous fran­chise.

John­son’s next film is the Dis­ney mu­si­cal Moana and then, in 2017, he will be seen in the next Fast and Fu­ri­ous se­quel, a big-screen Bay­watch re­boot and a re­make of Ju­manji. John­son will then start work on su­per­hero film Shazam and a fol­low-up to San An­dreas.

In the sum­mer, John­son was named by Forbes as the world’s high­est-paid ac­tor with earn­ings of $64.5 mil­lion.

John­son fol­lows in a long line of hunks to take Peo­ple’s hon­our, start­ing in 1985 with the first win­ner Mel Gib­son.

Other re­cip­i­ents in­clude Chris Hemsworth, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Chan­ning Ta­tum and Ge­orge Clooney – who, along with Johnny Depp and Richard Gere, has taken the ti­tle twice.

The 2015 win­ner was re­tired soc­cer star David Beck­ham – who is mar­ried to Spice Girl and fash­ion de­signer Vic­to­ria Beck­ham.
