Let’s hear it for The Rock!

The hunky six foot five “Ballers” star is too sexy for People magazine, who crowned the former WWE pro “Sexiest Man Alive” on Tuesday.

The former defensive lineman with the University of Miami tells the magazine that now he has “pretty much reached the pinnacle.”

On his Instagram account, with a picture of the magazine, the man also known as Dwayne Johnson wrote: “This just means I’m still up at 4am trainin hard, takin care of my babies, drivin my pick up truck and tellin a few dirty/nerdy jokes... extremely sexily of course.”

What does the title mean to him?

“Remember, sexy isn’t something you try and be. Sexy happens naturally when you’re comfortable just being yourself. Trust me, I’m an expert at this.”

Dwayne Johnson is in illustrious company: Last year’s cover man was soccer star David Beckham. Other recent sexy men include Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine and Channing Tatum.

The 44-year-old lives part time in Southwest Ranches with his girlfriend Lauren Hashian and their baby daughter. He also has a teen daughter with his ex, Dany Garcia.

Next up for the big man on campus: voice work in Disney’s “Moana.”
