The Rock on a roll: ‘Sexiest Man Alive’
Former WWEchamp Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can add People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive title to his list of accomplishments.
The 44-year-old wrestler-turned-actor was crowned this year’s winner Tuesday. The “Fast and the Furious” movie star tells the magazine that the honor means he has “pretty much reached the pinnacle.”
Johnson, the father of two girls — Simone, 15, and Jasmine, 11 months — became famous in the late 1990s and early 2000s as a performer with World Wrestling Entertainment. He turned toward Hollywood and found success with films like “The Mummy Returns” (2001) and a spinoff, “The Scorpion King” (2002). He joined the “Fast and the Furious” franchise in 2011 for its fifth film.
Last year’s winner was British soccer standout David Beckham. Other recent winners include Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine and Channing Tatum.
Johnson has lent his voice to a character in the animated Disney film “Moana,” which hits theaters next week.
He also is slated to co-star in the eighth film of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise next year, as well as in a remake of “Jumanji.”
