I must have some sort of psychic intuition. It was just a few weeks ago that I posted why Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is basically the best thing ever, and today People magazine revealed they’ve chosen him as 2016’s Sexiest Man Alive! Ahhh! The Moana star is currently billed as the highest paid actor in Hollywood and can now add his new moniker to an ever growing list of accomplishments and positivity.
Exclusively opening up to People about his new title, The Rock feels lucky, but it’s nothing new to his girlfriend of 10 years, Lauren Hashian. “The good thing is she already thinks I’m the Sexiest Man Alive,” he told the mag. “She’s going to yell loudly, she’s going to scream.”
In addition to his new sexy man status, Johnson also shared potential dreams of living in the White House one day as the leader of the United States. “I used to say it jokingly but every time I was asked, it was with a real genuine interest. And it was very earnest,” he said. “so I started to really think. Could I make a difference? Could I surround myself with really brilliant people to help me make decisions? Do I care about this country? And when the answers continued to come up yes, then I thought, there’s a good chance. Yeah, one day. Then we’ll do another interview like this.”
Well he certainly has my vote, but for the time being, he’s set on sending the out a message of inspirational advice which has helped him get to the level of success he’s enjoying now. “You have to be kind to people,” he shared. I heard a quote when I was 15 years old, and I’ll never forget it: ‘It’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice. When I heard that, I thought, ‘Well, maybe one day if I’m important, I want to remember that.’ Being kind and nice to people is the easiest thing that we can do.”
Sounds like a sound and safe way to live during these emotionally turbulent times.
Do you think The Rock is the Sexiest Man Alive?1
