People magazine has named Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. The Rock, its “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2016, ushering him into an elite group of physically appealing men that over the years has included George Clooney, Matt Damon and David Beckham.
The award is, of course, a naked public relations enterprise, bestowed upon a celebrity — often an actor — who is in the throes of promoting a new project. In Mr. Johnson’s case, that would be “Moana,” an animated Disney film, which will open in wide release on Nov. 23.
He will also co-star in the eighth film of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise next year as well as in a remake of “Jumanji,” and he has been chronicling daily the filming process of that film on his Instagram account, which has nearly 70 million followers.
Mr. Johnson told the magazine: “I’m not quite too sure where we go from here. I’ve done it all; this is it.”
