Standing at a mammoth 6 ft. 5 and weighing in at 245 lbs., not only is #DwyaneJohnson a hulking hound of a human (and one that banked more bucks than any other actor in 2016), but he's also the sexiest man alive — according to People Magazine.

Perhaps this win is thanks to the fact that this chiseled Rock has been whipping his shirt off on the regs for upcoming roles in #Baywatch and #Fast8, or perhaps it's down to his ability to take down werewolves, gorillas and lizards in #Rampage. Whatever the reason for his crowning, Johnson now has more justification for strutting his stuff like the be-pec'd peacock he truly is.

And clearly, he's pretty pleased with the result, telling People:

“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.”

I mean, the man does have a point — where does one go once they've won the People's Sexiest Man Alive award? To The Ellen DeGeneres Show, obviously! The 44-year-old WWE veteran-turned-actor will make his first debut as Dwayne Johnson SMA on the show later today (check local listings for time). Prepare for flexes galore, guys!

As for his acceptance speech, The Rock would like to thank his family and his confidence:

“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.”

Bravo!
