It is now official! Paul Rudd has been named the “Sexiest Man Alive” for the year 2021 by People's magazine.

Paul Rudd, now 52, became famous for his acting on 'Friends'. The news broke out on November 9, while he was attending 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert'. Rudd surely had a tough time accepting his new-earned title. In an interview with People he mentioned, "I do have an awareness, enough to know that when people hear that I'd be picked for this, they would say, 'What?'" He added: "This is not false humility. There are so many people that should get this before me."



Humble personality coupled with gorgeous looks — it’s no wonder why people have loved Rudd and his roles over the years. He is working with Will Ferrell for his new Apple TV+ series 'The Shrink Next Door' and is involved in one of Hollywood's most loved franchises, 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife'.

Rudd's wife Julie Yaeger was the only person the actor shared the news with, before it got published. When asked about her reaction, he said: "She was stupefied. 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?"

Last year the title was given to actor Michael B Jordan. If you are interested in the history, Mel Gibson was the first ever to receive the title back in 1985, and several A-listers like Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp and Richard Gere have been named People's 'Sexiest Man Alive'.

Now that he's officially sexy, Paul Rudd is anticipating that his life is going to change a lot. However, despite his superstardom, Rudd still considers himself most happy at home with his wife of 18 years, Julie, 53, and their kids Jack, 17, and Darby, 12.

Paul Rudd and Julie Yaeger are actually quite the Hollywood power couple. Julie is a producer and screenwriter and married to Paul since 2003. They still manage to keep their relationship away from the tabloids. Neither are active on any social media account since they prefer to keep their lives private.

In 2006, they welcomed their first child Jack and in 2010 they had another beautiful addition to their family. Their daughter Darby was born that year. The couple loves going to NBA games and other entertaining events with the kids.

In one of his interviews, Paul Rudd mentioned that parenthood helped him become a sensitive person and that he can’t think about his life without his family. Maybe, that is the reason why he frequently takes his kids to his film sets.
