The year 2016 seems to be lucky for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. After becoming the world's highest-paid actor with $64 million net income, the Rock has reportedly topped the list of PEOPLE magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2016 list.

PEOPLE magazine is yet to release the 2016's Sexiest Man Alive list, but rumours of Johnson topping this year's list has already started making the rounds. PEOPLE magazine's much-awaited Sexiest Man Alive list will be revealed on November 18.

According to Gossip Cop, the wrestler-turned-actor has dethroned last year's winner David Beckham to become the Sexiest Man Alive 2016. The Baywatch actor has also graced the cover page of the magazine's annual issue.

Interestingly, the actor posted a photo on his official Instagram page and hinted about the same. "But first I'm here doing my Charlie Chaplin pose for a "First ever" cover shoot which will drop next month. It's a huge surprise so I can ruin the magic. Just know zero fanny packs were harmed during this shoot. Unreal schedule today, so I need my unleaded and I need it now," he wrote on Instagram.

If the reports of Johnson topping the Sexiest Man Alive list are true then he will join the league with Hollywood's heartthrobs including Mel Gibson, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Richard Gere, Chris Hemsworth, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds.

Johnson, the world's highest paid actor of 2016, is dominating the film and television industry with big projects in hand. After the success Central Intelligence and HBO's Ballers, the actor is looking forward to the much-awaited animated musical Moana, which is slated to release this Thanksgiving. Apart from this, the actor is also busy with big line-ups for 2017, including Fast and Furious 8, Baywatch and Jumanji remakes.
