Ryan Reynolds Reacts to Paul Rudd Being Named “Sexiest Man Alive”

As you may or may not know yet, Paul Rudd was just named 2021’s “Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine, and I’m totally ok with that. My girlfriend thinks I look a lot like Paul Rudd, so I might be a little biased in this. Unfortunately, not everyone is as happy as I am with the decision. After all, Ryan Reynolds just got dethroned from his 2020 nomination, and he decided to let the world know his opinion via the short tweet below:

“That’s my right arm he’s lying on.”

Naturally, he’s just joking, and it doesn’t stop there. From TODAY:

“I just heard about this this morning. I’m very excited. I think that this opportunity will be wasted on him, like so many before him,” he joked Wednesday on TODAY. “He’s going to play it shy. He’s going to play it bashful, humble. If I know what I knew now, I wouldn’t. You got to seize this opportunity.”

“If I got it now, I’m not saying I would leave my family, but they would need to go on without me,” he quipped. “I would roam the world clutching my dog-eared People magazine, going from town to town, sewing my wild oats like some sort of nude, magical gardener. It would be amazing.”
