What do Patrick Sawyze, Pierce Brosnan, Johnny Depp, Richard Gere, Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise, John Legend, Idris Elba, George Clooney, and 24 other personalities have in common? Well, for starters they are all men and really good looking too with other notable achievements.
But for now we just want to focus on how hot they all are and that they have all had the honour of being named belonging in an elite club – the PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive. This year, Paul Rudd joins the club after he was crowned PEOPLE’s 2021 Sexiest Man Alive for its 22 Nov 2021 issue. On the PEOPLE’s website, the 52-year-old actor quipped that his wife, Julie Yaegar wouldn’t have voted for him if she had the chance to cast her ballot for Sexiest Man Alive.
In an article Rudd who opened up in an interview with Extra on Tuesday joked that his wife would have voted for Keanu Reeves. “Come on, he’s Keanu, I’d vote for him,” he said. Rudd, who shares two children with Yaeger — Jack, 17, and Darby, 12 — told PEOPLE he feels the most like himself at home with his family.
“When I think about myself, I think of myself as a husband and a father, like I’m that,” he said. “I just hang out with my family when I’m not working. That’s what I kind of like the most.” The Ant-Man star also spilled about Yaeger’s initial reaction to his title, describing her as “stupefied,” when she first heard the news.
Armed with effortless charm and a disarming smile, actor Paul Rudd made his name on stage and screen in a number of notable projects. He rose to prominence after he starred against Alicia Silverstone in “Clueless” as a know-it-all stepbrother and from playing Phoebe’s husband on the popular series “Friends”.
Today, Rudd is renowned for his role as Ant-Man in the MCU, as well as the critically acclaimed Netflix original series “Living With Yourself.”
Winning the title hasn’t changed anything for this super charming actor and he has said that he intends to put his new title to good use.
“I’m hoping now that I’ll finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and B Jordan,” he quipped to PEOPLE. “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.”
