People magazine has just chosen Paul Rudd as this year's Sexiest Man Alive, putting him among the ranks of legendary hunks like Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, Richard Gere, and George Clooney. The history of the honor has been an interesting one, with some stars winning twice, one couple coming out on top, and some hotly debated choices (we're looking at you, Blake Shelton...).
Paul Rudd has picked up the title in 2021 at the age of 52. The comedy actor himself said "I do have an awareness, enough to know that when people hear that I'd be picked for this, they would say, 'What?'" That might be the first reaction for many who hear the result, but perhaps it's humble his self-deprecation and sense of humor that add to his mystique. Despite his bafflement, Rudd says he's going to lean into his new title and own it. "I'm getting business cards made," he told People.
