People Magazine Names Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Sexiest Man Alive 2016

"I’m not quite too sure where we go from here. I’ve done it all, this is it."

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been named People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” this year, a title that Ellen Degeneres helped usher in Tuesday with a hilarious montage on her show.

“I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” the 44-year-old Baywatch star said of the honor.

“And then I thought, ‘Wow, we’ve pretty much reached the pinnacle.’ I’m not quite too sure where we go from here. I’ve done it all, this is it.”

It’s easy to see why Johnson snagged the title this year, as anyone who follows the 6’5″, 245 lb. powerhouse on Instagram knows.

But for those who don’t, Ellen’s montage tracks his rise from “innocent youth” to “sexy hunk,” and every “outrageous fanny pack” in between:

In an interview in the November 2016 issue, Johnson said he’s proud of his career but even prouder of his family.

“I’ve made big sweeping changes in my career over the years, which have served me nicely,” he said. “But I feel that the big sweeping changes that happened in my life, in my relationships, of being a dad, of being a partner, and the things that I was and the things that I am, has really lent itself to a confidence.”

“We just have this awesome family that is truly non-traditional but so rooted in love. And that’s such a cool thing. I’m very proud of it.”
