The Rock named People’s Sexiest Man Alive

It is now official: The Rock is sexy. I think we can file this under “least surprising news ever.” And the title couldn’t be given to a nicer guy. The big reveal was made by Ellen DeGeneres.

Ellen DeGeneres: “You are People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive!”

Ellen broke the news that Deco has been telling you for years: The Rock is gracing the cover of People magazine as the Sexiest Man Alive.

Ellen DeGeneres: “Will the transition be easy from the last sexy man to you?”

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson: “I think the transition is gonna be easy. I can tell you now what this means is, I still have to drive in my pickup truck and change Jasmine’s diapers, but now I’m the Sexiest Man Alive.”

It’s been a busy couple of days for our buddy Dwayne. Beginning on Saturday in Los Angeles, when we sat down with him as he kicked off the global press tour for his new Disney animated film “Moana.”

Chris Van Vliet: “Great to see you, as always.”

Dwyane Johnson: “Good to see you. You’re looking sharp, man!”

Chris Van Vliet: “Thank you, only the best for the most electrifying man in all of entertainment.”

Dwayne: “I appreciate that. You’re looking good. You represent us 305’s well.”

And last night, Hollywood was turned into Hawaii for the world premiere of “Moana.”

Dwayne Johnson: “Well, first of all, welcome. And as they say on the islands, aloha.”

In the film, The Rock plays a demigod named Maui, helping a young girl named Moana on a journey to find herself.

Dwayne Johnson: “I am most excited for audiences to discover the singing. The music in this thing is amazing. Not that I’m amazing, but other people who are singing — I sing; I’m OK — but other people who sing are amazing.”

Not only did The Rock walk the red carpet with his co-stars. He also did some singing with Tony-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote the music for the film.”

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Dwayne Johnson (singing): “What can I say, except you’re welcome, for the wonderful world you know.”

So if The Rock is saying you’re welcome, we’re saying, “Thank you, Rock.”

Disney’s “Moana” opens in theaters Nov. 23.
