Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 16 (ANI): Hollywood actor and former 'WWE' champ Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson continues to hit the jackpot and does not seem to be slowing down any bit any time soon.

The world's highest-paid actor has big box-office draw but it's his even bigger heart that made the 'Moana' star People's magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive' of 2016.

The 44-year-old welcomed the title saying, "That's awesome."

"And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is," Johnson told the magazine in this week's cover story.

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."

To celebrate his title, the 'San Andreas' actor will make his 'Sexiest Man Alive' debut on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'.

At 6 foot 5 inches and 245 lbs., the Herculean star insists that becoming comfortable in his own skin "took a lot of time."

"[As a teen] I was doing a lot of things that I shouldn't have. I was getting arrested multiple times, but at the same time, always very respectful to my teachers and elders. I was unsure of who I was and who I wanted to be," he said.

"I've made big sweeping changes in my career over the years, which have served me nicely. But I feel that the big sweeping changes that happened in my life, in my relationships, of being a dad, of being a partner, and the things that I was and the things that I am, has really lent itself to a confidence," he added.
