The world has been celebrating the gift of Paul Rudd over the last couple of years and just recently, the Ant-Man star added another impressive accolade to his already stellar list of accomplishments in Hollywood. In case you've been living under a rock, the Marvel Cinematic Universe actor was hailed by People Magazine as 2021's Sexiest Man Alive, joining an elite crew of actors that includes fellow Marvel castmates like Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, and Michael B. Jordan.

Unsurprisingly, a lot of people were genuinely thrilled that Rudd was given the coveted title, well, except for his wife who apparently was rooting for someone else. According to Paul himself, his wife Julie would have cast her vote for The Matrix and John Wick star Keanu Reeves if she had things her way and turns out, he wouldn't have any problems with it.

In an interview with Extra during the red carpet event of Ghostbusters: Afterlife in New York City, the Scott Lang actor jokingly said that he agrees with his wife's sentiments and would vote for Reeves as well. He explains: "Come on, he’s Keanu, I’d vote for him."

Keanu has never graced the illustrious Sexiest Man Alive cover but that's not to say that he isn't a worthy contender for the title especially now with the whole "Keanussance" going on in Tinseltown. And taking nothing away from Paul Rudd, of course, he totally deserves to be hailed the world's sexiest and he's proven that you don't need to be buff as hell just to be called "sexy".

Meanwhile, Paul Rudd will make his MCU return in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, hitting cinemas in 2023.
