There were all kinds of rumors last week that Chris Evans (Captain America) was going to be named People's Sexiest Man Alive for this year. But those rumors were off base. It was another Marvel Hero, Ant Man, that received the honors! Congratulations are in order for Paul Rudd. He was named People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2021. He was revealed on last night’s edition of “The Late Show with Steven Colbert” after the host hilariously put him through his paces. Rudd told People that being considered sexy is a little out of his wheelhouse, but he’s going to lean into it. “I’m getting business cards made.” Of course, his wife of 18 years,Julie, was “stupefied” when he shared the news with her. “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?” Now that Paul has officially been declared sexy, he expects his life to change. “I'm hoping now that I'll finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with [George] Clooney and [Brad] Pitt and [Michael] B Jordan,” he says. 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.”
I'm all in for this choice. I don't always agree with People's picks, but this one I think they got right. Not only is Paul a good looking man, but he's also funny and self deprecating. I love that about him. Along with his new Ant Man movie coming out next year, he'll be starring in the new Ghostbusters film which comes out at the end of this month!
