Paul Rudd is PEOPLE's 2021 'Sexiest Man Alive'! The 52-year-old actor jokes that he is going to get special business cards made in honour of his new title. 

Paul says his friends are going to give him a lot of grief, but admits that he would probably do the same if he was in their shoes.

The 'Ant-Man' star's wife, Julie Yaeger, was reportedly "stupefied" when she found out that he is officially the sexiest man on planet earth. 

"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?" he told the publication

Now that he is the fairest of them all, Rudd hopes to enjoy all the perks that come along with the title. 

"I'm hoping now that I'll finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and B Jordan... And I'll probably try to get better at brooding in really soft light," he teased.

Paul Rudd follows in the footsteps of Michael B. Jordan

Previous 'Sexiest Man Alive' titleholders include Michael B. Jordan (2020), John Legend (2019), Idris Elba (2018), Blake Shelton (2017), and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson (2016).

Social media users have named Paul the 'Sexiest Vampire Alive' because he is ageing gracefully.  

"I love Paul Rudd. But the fact that he clearly has access to a fountain of youth and is not sharing it with the rest of us feels like a disqualifying advantage," one Twitter user wrote.

Another tweep added: "Finally, People magazine announces what I’ve known for 26 years: Paul Rudd is a g’damn national treasurer (and maybe a vampire?) and we should all send him flowers."
