Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2016, Gossip Cop has exclusively learned. The wrestler-turned-actor, who’s one of the busiest people in Hollywood, has landed the cover of the magazine’s annual issue.

Johnson is enjoying a fantastic year with both a hit movie and TV series, Central Intelligence and HBO’s “Ballers,” respectively, and has another surefire success on the way with Disney’s animated musical Moana, which hits theaters this Thanksgiving. And he’s not slowing down anytime soon. Johnson has several major projects lined up for 2017, including a new Fast and Furious sequel, a big-screen Baywatch reboot and a remake of Jumanji. Additionally, “Ballers” has been renewed for a third season, and he has a handful of movies currently in pre-production, including the superhero movie Shazam, a Doc Savage film, and sequels to San Andreas and Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Johnson now joins the ranks of People’s bevy of sexy men. Mel Gibson was the first recipient of the title back in 1985, and since then, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp and Richard Gere have received the honor twice. Recent Sexiest Man Alive winners include David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds. People won’t announce Johnson as the Sexiest Man Alive until Tuesday. In the past, Gossip Cop also exclusively broke the news in advance of the official announcement that Adam Levine and Channing Tatum were named the winners. Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for Johnson for comment, as well as to a spokesperson for People.
