Paul Rudd Sexiest Man Alive: 2021
Fans are quick to spot the actor in his minor teen idol role in the 1995 film Clueless, Paul Rudd just got a bit hotter and was given one of the most coveted titles in Hollywood, People’s Sexiest Man Alive.
Many know him for being in films like Anchorman and This Is 40. Still, now the “Ant-Man” was honored the title during CBS’ The Late Show on Tuesday, Nov. 9 by Stephan Colbert. He is currently featured as People Magazine’s annual Sexiest Man Alive issue dethroning 2020 recipient Michael B. Jordan.
The 52-year-old actor is happily married to his wife, Julie Yaeger of 18 years, who met shortly after he filmed Clueless. His wife was the first person he talked to about winning the title. And in his words, 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?”
