Sexiest man in the world is from New Jersey
No ladies, it’s not Jon Bon Jovi. And it’s definitely not Uncle Floyd, Danny Devito, or Jack Nicholson.
But he’s an older man. Of the original Gen-Xs – 52 to be exact.
Paul Rudd has just been named the sexiest man in Alice by People magazine. Is it amazing? Even Paul Rudd himself isn’t quite sure how to explain his bizarre genetic fountain of youth.
He turned 35 one day and never aged a day. Does anyone remember the public service announcement he made about masks during the pandemic where he basically played the role of a millennial as a gag?
His wife Julie Yaeger, a year older, was stunned, Rudd said, upon hearing the news that he had been named the 2021 Sexiest Man Alive.
“But you know she was really nice about it. After a few laughs and a shock, she said “Oh, they got it”. And it was very sweet. She probably wasn’t telling the truth, but what is she going to say?
I can just hear this conversation going on and it warms my cynical heart.
As for Rudd, he joked that he priced business cards with the title.
So you know there is still a connection with New Jersey. Paul Rudd is a Jersey guy. He spent his first 10 years here, being born in Passaic and raised in North Jersey. After that, his father’s work with Trans World Airlines moved the family to Overland Park, Kansas. We won’t hold it against him. Once a Jersey boy always a Jersey boy.
New Jersey was on the run for the sexiest man alive with People last year by selecting Newark’s Michael B. Jordan.
You can search for Paul Rudd in the long-delayed upcoming film “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”. Here is an excerpt from his work.
