Paul Rudd star of Marvel's Ant-Man series was named Sexiest Man Alive of 2021 by People magazine and had the best response to the new title.

While many would be quite modest and coy about being named the "Sexiest Man Alive" of 2021, Paul Rudd has decided he's going to "lean" in to the new title and create "business cards" with the news.

When asked how he would deal with being "Sexiest Man Alive" in an interview with People, he revealed: "I mean I'm going to lean into it hard. I'm going to own this. I'm not going to try to be like 'Oh, I'm so modest.' I'm getting business cards made."

Of course, the actor was joking and is overwhelmed at being chosen this years "sexiest" man and is, in fact, finding it pretty hard to accept People's choice

"I do have an awareness, enough to know that when people hear that I'd be picked for this, they would say, 'What?' " the actor said before adding, "This is not false humility. There are so many people that should get this before me."
