9 reasons why we love Dwayne ‘The Rock' Johnson, People's ‘Sexiest Man Alive'

KUSA - Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has a lot of things going for him, from muscles to a nice smile to the fact he actually seems like a fun guy.

And these are just a few of the reasons he was named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.” So, in a year where we lost David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Harambe, we thought we’d take a few minutes and focus on some good news.

Mainly, the fact that in the billions of years of the universe’s existence, we got to live at the same time as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, a national treasure.

He accepted his new title – and new responsibilities – with grace

The Rock talked about his new title as the Sexiest Man Alive on Instagram, imparting an important message:

“Remember, sexy isn’t just something you “try and be.” Sexy happens naturally when you’re comfortable just being yourself.

“Trust me, I’m an expert at this. (plus I read the “how to be sexy and a great kisser” guide when I was 8.”


He took this fanny pack photo

He elevated the fanny pack to a new level of sexiness.


He dressed up as Pikachu for Halloween



He knows how to handle a flamethrower

This is skill.


He likes animals

But if this picture is any indication, he doesn’t let puppy time get in the way of gym time.


Who's ready to adopt? DM @laurenhashianofficial and we'll get back to you. Theae are the two gorgeous fur babies we rescued from the streets last week. I nicknamed them after two of my fav gorgeous ladies, @jlo and @Beyonce;). A mama and her baby girl. We had them spayed and all blood work and shots taken care of. Now they're ready for an amazing family to take them in. Hundreds of families have already requested to take them home so please keep the requests coming! Again, DM @laurenhashianofficial and leave your information and we'll be getting back to you. Universe works in mysterious ways and for some reason we were meant to find these two lovelies roaming the streets and terribly malnourished. Now they're famous and licking the sweat off my face😂🙌🏾. #AdoptionTime #JLoAndBeyonce #Hawaii

He’s a huge nerd just like the rest of us



The Rock is also an adorable dad





We've missed you Hawaii. So good to be home. Aloha a'e au ika pua 'ume 'ume mau (I love the flower that attracts constantly). Thank you so much to the Head of Hawaii's Film Commission, Donne Dawson and airport staff for welcoming me and my family with such warm aloha. And even though baby Jasmine did NOT like her special Pikake (Jasmine) lei and started to cry when you put it around her neck, my first daughter Simone arrives next week and will have so many Hawaiian leis they'll go up to her eyebrows - which she will no doubt LUV IT! 🌺😉. Can't wait. Good to be home Hawaii.. excited and proud to bring another big film back to our island. I will now go steal my daily Snickers bar from 7-11 on Kapiolani Blvd. (a few of you know that inside joke). #Home #Ohana #LeiPikake #JUMANJI

Even though he’s a big movie star now, he still remembers where he came from (and it’s awesome) 

He can sing

Look up his WWE serenades – we can’t post some of those on 9NEWS.com.

So instead, here he is singing in a Disney movie:

In conclusion, we're not worthy of the Rock. Here's a photo gallery:
