Paul Rudd Named Sexiest Man Alive: ‘I’m Going to Own This’

Paul Rudd is People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.”

Stephen Colbert exclusively revealed the news on Tuesday night.

The 52-year-old actor is best known for his roles in Clueless, Ron Burgundy, Ant Man and The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

Rudd joked, “I hope that I’ll finally be invited to those sexy dinners with George Clooney and Brad Pitt and Michael B. Jordan.”

He told People magazine, “This is not false humility. There are so many people that should get this before me. My wife was stupefied. After some giggling and shock, she was very sweet about it, though.”

He added jokingly, “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.”
