After leaving this role following “Avengers: Endgame” in 2019, he starred in films like “Knives Out” and “The Gray Man.” Talking to People for his Sexiest Man Alive cover interview, he said, “It’s hard to talk about all this. It feels strange, like showing off in a weird way.”

Speaking to People in his 2021 Sexiest Man Alive cover story, Rudd mentioned, “I’m aware enough to know that when people hear I’ve been chosen for this, they’d say, ‘What?'” He also said, “I truly mean it. There are many other people who deserve this title more than me.”

Idris Elba has been part of big movie series like Star Trek, Fast and Furious, and Avengers. When he was named Sexiest Man Alive in 2018, he was really surprised and humbled. Speaking to People in his interview, he said, “At first, I couldn’t believe it.

It was a great surprise and definitely boosted my confidence.”

Blake Shelton, 2017

Blake Shelton, known for hosting the singing reality show “The Voice,” was encouraged by his singer-wife Gwen Stefani to accept the Sexiest Man Alive title.
