Paul Rudd is People’s 2021?s Sexiest Man Alive

Rarely has People magazine made a decision on Sexiest Man that I’ve agreed with.   Brad Pitt, Idris Elba… Brad a second time.

But here’s a man I can stand behind.  The dreamy, never aging, loved by all Paul Rudd.

And at 52 Rudd says he’s most happy at home with his wife of 18 years, Julie, 53, and their kids Jack, 17, and Darby, 12.

He seems happy to have the honor bestowed on him, but he’s still his usual humble self.

“I do have an awareness, enough to know that when people hear that I’d be picked for this, they would say, ‘What?’ ” the actor tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “This is not false humility. There are so many people that should get this before me.”
