Say hello to your sexiest man alive, America!

PEOPLE Magazine announced this morning that they had chosen former WWE Superstar and the highest paid actor in Hollywood, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, for the title this year, making him the first African-American male to be named so in twenty years. When asked to share his thoughts, Johnson said: “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.”

Johnson also had a few guesses as to why his fans find him sexy:

“This is the kind of question that gets me into trouble. Ah, a sense of humor. And I think probably just trying not to be sexy and just being cool and confident in your movies. I think with a lot of my fans, I’ve gotten to a very, very cool place where there’s a direct line between the man they know off-screen and the man they see on-screen.”

He also joked that skin care played a part – “It starts with the skin. We’ve only got one face. You’ve got to take care of it. So I exfoliate.”

To celebrate, Johnson made his ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ debut on Ellen today, where he promoted his upcoming Disney film, Moana (hitting theaters Thanksgiving weekend) as well.

Check out some more photos from Johnson’s cover shoot below:
