LOL! Ellen DeGeneres surprised Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson with an epic video revealing his transformation from ‘innocent youth’ to a ‘sex symbol.’ She took a hilarious look back at his awkward wresting photos and more to reveal that he is ‘People’s Sexiest Man Alive’! Watch the funny video here and see his insane reaction!
Here’s to 2016! Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, 44, was just crowned with the coveted title of People Magazine‘s 2016 “Sexiest Man Alive,” and we couldn’t agree more! And who would be better than Ellen DeGeneres, 58, to surprise him with the news?! The talk show host had the actor on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Nov. 15, to debut his jaw-dropping cover, and she shocked Dwayne with a hilarious video. The short film was narrated by Ellen and took a trip down memory lane of The Rock’s past, awkward photos of his transition from WWE star, to acting phenomenon. LOL!
The video’s title, “The Evolution of a Sex Symbol” showcased Dwayne’s infamous viral photo where he rocked a fanny pack, his “bad boy” image in the WWE ring, and his hilarious Tooth Fairy costume from the 2010 film.
As the video flashed over photos of The Rock’s career throughout the years, Ellen’s hilarious narration said his, “sexiness became irresistible.” She ended the video with “So we salute you Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for all you’ve overcome to be the sexy hunk of man meat you are today.” HA!
After the epic video played, Ellen surprised Dwayne with the news that he was People’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” and he totally didn’t see it coming! He laughed before she revealed his stunning cover for the mag, and the crowd went wild. “Wow, wow,” he gushed, while thanking Ellen. “I think the transition’s going to be easy. I can tell you now that what this means — I still have to drive in my pickup truck and change Jasmine‘s [Johnson, 10-months], but now I’m just still the ‘Sexiest Man Alive.'” SO cute!
We think The Rock is a perfect fit for this year’s title of “Sexiest Man Alive.” He’s taking over for David Beckham, 41, who was the lucky winner of 2015’s title. Those are some big shoes to fill, but we think Dwayne has it covered. The actor can finally say he’s a member of some of People‘s past sexiest men, Chris Hemsworth, 33, Channing Tatum, 36, Adam Levine, 37, and more! Congrats Dwayne!
