Paul Rudd Is Finally Named Sexiest Man Alive

Paul Rudd - the man that never ages - has been named as People's 2021 Sexiest Man Alive.

The 52-year-old Marvel star was given the coveted title today (10 November) and told the magazine he can't wait to boast to his mates.

He told People: "As they should. I would. I mean I'm going to lean into it hard.

"I'm going to own this. I'm not going to try to be like, 'Oh, I'm so modest'.

"I'm getting business cards made.

"But all of my friends will destroy me and I expect them to. And that's why they're my friends."

Comedian and Rudd's friend Seth Rogan reacted to the accolade on Twitter, simply writing: "No arguments here."

Paul joked: "I'm hoping now that I'll finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and [Michael] B Jordan.

"And I figure I'll be on a lot more yachts. I'm excited to expand my yachting life. And I'll probably try to get better at brooding in really soft light. I like to ponder.

"I think this is going to help me become more inward and mysterious. And I'm looking forward to that."

The only person he told ahead of time was his wife Julie Yaeger and, initially, she couldn't believe it.

He said: "She was stupefied. But you know she was very sweet about it. After some giggling and shock, she said 'Oh, they got it right'.

"And that was very sweet. She was probably not telling the truth, but what's she going to say?"

The man, also known for playing Mike in Friends, appeared in a pre-taped sketch on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night to make the announcement.

Colbert played the head of the LSSC Sexiness Research Institute where he evaluated Paul over his qualifications for the title.

Hilariously, Paul had to prove himself to be the sexiest man alive by doing mental and physical tasks, which included putting his whole fist in his mouth.

In the final segment, Paul was in disbelief as he was crowned the coveted title and could barely contain himself - crying as he was given a bouquet, sash, and crown as confetti fell from the ceiling.
