Actor Dwayne ‘The Rock' Johnson is this year's Sexiest Man Alive, according to People.

“I said, ‘That's awesome.' And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” the Moana (Disney) star told PEOPLE in its upcoming issue. “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.”

Although he plays rough and tough characters on the big screen, the actor star did not always feel comfortable in his own skin. “I was doing a lot of things that I shouldn't have… I was unsure of who I was and who I wanted to be,” Johnson revealed of his teenage years.


His greatest treasures are his longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian and his daughters Jasmine, 11 months, and Simone, 15 (with his ex-wife Dany Garcia). “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.”
