DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON believes he has been chosen as People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive because he doesn't try to be ''sexy'' and has a ''sense of humour''.
DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON thinks his efforts not to be ''sexy'' led him to be crowned People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for 2016.
The publication has confirmed the 44-year-old movie star has been chosen to receive the honour and in the magazine's cover story he explains why he feels he is this year's winner.
Asked why legions of fans think he's a heartthrob, he said: ''This is the kind of question that gets me into trouble. Ah, a sense of humour. And I think probably just not trying to be sexy and just being cool and confident in your movies. I think with a lot of my fans, I've gotten to a very, very cool place where there's a direct line between the man they know off-screen and the man they see on-screen.''
Johnson - who still wrestles part-time for WWE - also admitted he exfoliates and that his healthy glow could have played a part in him receiving the title.
He quipped: ''It starts with the skin. We've only got one face. You've got to take care of it. So I exfoliate.''
And on what was on his mind when he heard the news, he added: ''I said, 'That's awesome.' And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is. And then I thought, 'Wow, we've pretty much reached the pinnacle.' I'm not quite too sure where we go from here. I've done it all, this is it!''
Meanwhile, the 'San Andreas' star - who has 11-month-old daughter Jasmine with his long-term partner Lauren Hashian and Simone, 15, with his ex-wife Dany Garcia - has opened up about his ''non-traditional'' family and how they keep him grounded.
He said: ''I've made big sweeping changes in my career over the years, which have served me nicely. But I feel that the big sweeping changes that happened in my life, in my relationships, of being a dad, of being a partner, and the things that I was and the things that I am, has really lent itself to a confidence.
''We just have this awesome family that is truly non-traditional but so rooted in love. And that's such a cool thing, I'm very proud of it.''
