He is talented, he is charming, and fans love him. Seriously, is there someone out there that does not like Paul Rudd at all? You have seen him in classic movies like 'Clueless' and even in Friends, or more recently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Scott Lang.

Without much preamble, Paul Rudd has been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive, and while fans are more than ecstatic for this, others are surprised wondering, how come it took so many years for him to be crowned with the title?

In previous years we have seen famous faces on this list like John Legend, Idris Elba, Blake Shelton, Dwayne Johnson, David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, Channing Tatum, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and many, many more. Now Paul Rudd joins the famous list this year a little bit skeptical of himself, but his wife, as always, is supporting him.

"She was stupefied," Paul says about his wife Julie Yaeger to People's magazine. "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?"

However, the actor admits that he does not consider himself as 'sexy' and instead, likes to label with more accurate names. "When I think about myself, I think of myself as a husband and a father, like I'm that," he says. "I just hang out with my family when I'm not working. That's what I kind of like the most."

While his wife supported him, Paul Rudd also admits that his friends are going to roast him until the end of the days, but that's what he expects from them because that's what he would do and that's why he calls them friends.

Obviously, fans, friends, and fellow celebs shared their thoughts about this. Mark Ruffalo shared on Twitter “Is that Paul Rudd…#SexiestManAlive?! I knew this day would come. Congrats, man I hope you continue to never age so you can continue to hold this title.”

Seth Rogen simply wrote “No Arguments here” and Josh Gad joked "If I had to lose out to someone, I'm happy it's Paul." Sharon Stone and Drew Barrymore also agreed with the pronouncement.

"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" Rudd added.

Ok, yes, he is being more modest than fans would expect, but he also joked that thanks to this new title, he now expects to be invited to party hard with some of the sexiest men from previous years. "I'm hoping now that I'll finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and B Jordan," he says. "And I figure I'll be on a lot more yachts. I'm excited to expand my yachting life.”
