On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Tuesday, the host was tasked with announcing People’s Sexiest Man Alive for this year. W, Colbert actually sat down with a different Avenger to put through the sexiness ringer - Paul Rudd.
The Sexiest Man Alive honor dates back to 1985, with 32 different men having received it over the years, like Ben Affleck and Matthew McConoughey to name a few. And People’s editors have said they go beyond appearance to look for qualities like kindness and being charitable. Which would make Paul Rudd the perfect choice.
And so the 52-year-old, who appears in the new film Ghostbusters: Afterlife this month, was finally delivered the good news. But not before Colbert put him through a lengthy interview process, that was equal parts hilarious and rigorous and forced Rudd to truly earn the honor that has been bestowed upon him.
