“I’m going to have business cards printed!” Laughs the Ant-Man actor when he hears the news.
At 52, Paul Rudd is on the cover of the new issue of People, elected “Sexiest Man Alive”. The actor of Friends, Featured Presenter and Ant-Man succeeds Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Black Panther) who had obtained this title in 2020. And he seems very amused to have been chosen to enter the club of the beautiful kids: “I hope I finally get invited to these sexy dinners with Clooney, Pitt and B. Jordan, he exclaims in the video accompanying the publication of the magazine. I also suppose that I will be invited more on yachts. I can’t wait to spend more time aboard the yachts … “ Still laughing, he admits that he is likely to tell it to himself after that: “I’m going to really enjoy it. Don’t count on me saying, ‘Okay, let’s keep it small.’ I’m going to have business cards printed. All my friends are going to turn me on, I know it. That’s why they’re my friends! “
Paul Rudd, the actor who does not age
More seriously, he admits to having been very surprised to have received the email announcing that he was going to receive this honor: “This is not false modesty, there are so many people who should have been elected before me.” He also tells the cute reaction of his wife Julie, 53 years old including 18 of marriage with him, on hearing the news: “She was amazed, but she was also lovely about it. After the shock and some laughter, she said to me, ‘Oh, they’re right!’ It was very sweet. She probably wasn’t telling me the truth, but what could she say? In life, I see myself more as a husband and a father. CA, it’s me . I’m with them all the time when I’m not working. That’s my favorite thing. “
