Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson thinks his efforts not to be "sexy" led him to be crowned People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for 2016.

People Magazine has confirmed the 44-year-old movie star has been chosen to receive the honour and in the magazine's cover story he explains why he feels he is this year's winner.

Asked why legions of fans think he's a heartthrob, he said: "This is the kind of question that gets me into trouble. Ah, a sense of humour. And I think probably just not trying to be sexy and just being cool and confident in your movies.

"I think with a lot of my fans, I've gotten to a very, very cool place where there's a direct line between the man they know off-screen and the man they see on-screen."

Johnson - who still wrestles part-time for WWE - also admitted he exfoliates and that his healthy glow could have played a part in him receiving the title.

He quipped: "It starts with the skin. We've only got one face. You've got to take care of it. So I exfoliate."
