Reuters, Nov 10 – actor Paul Rudd now is elected by People’s magazine ‘sexiest man alive’. The actor known for playing “Ant-Man” is now in the league with George Clooney and Idris Elba.
Paul’s career spans over 30 years. The recent news took him and his wife by surprise:
“I do have an awareness, enough to know that when people hear that I’d be picked for this, they would say, ‘What?'” he told People in a cover story.
“She was stupefied,” he said, describing the reaction of Julie, his wife of 18 years. “After some giggling and shock, she said, ‘Oh, they got it right.’ And that was very sweet.”
Paul had several other appearances in several franchises: “Friends” ( where he played Phoebe’s boyfriend), Knocked Up or Marvel’s “Ant-Man”

Paul jokingly stated he expected his life to radically change after this event:
“I’m hoping now that I’ll finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and B Jordan,” he told People. “And I figure I’ll be on a lot more yachts.” Definitely we’ll be seeing more of Rudd considering the latest celebrity ‘upgrade’.
