Dwayne Johnson is ‘sexiest man alive’ and Priyanka couldn’t agree more


WWE wrestler-cum-actor Dwayne Johnson, also known by his ring name ‘The Rock’, has been named the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ by People magazine this year. And Priyanka Chopra couldn’t agree more, and was among the firsts to congratulate the actor.

Priyanka, who has co-starred with Dwayne in their upcoming film ‘Baywatch’, took to her Twitter handle and posted the cover of People magazine featuring the actor, and tweeted, “Congrats @TheRock . Sexy is as sexy does.. One of the nicest people I know.. Much love.”   

The ‘San Andreas’ actor was prompt to reply and wrote, “Thank you PC! You already know I luv and appreciate you back. Sexy is that "thing" we always talk about.” To this, the ‘Quantico’ actress responded, “It sure is DJ.. Xoxo.”

‘Baywatch’ by Paramount Pictures, is based on the iconic television series that aired during the 1990s. Dwayne, 44, stars as Mitch Buchannon, while the 34-year-old Priyanka plays the antagonist named Victoria Leeds in the movie.

Directed by Seth Gordon, ‘Baywatch’ also stars Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera and Jon Bass. The movie is slated to hit theatres on May 19, 2017.

Meanwhile, Priyanka is shooting for her American TV series ‘Quantico’ and has been nominated for the People’s Choice Awards 2017 in ‘Favourite Dramatic TV actress’ category. She had previously bagged the same award this year for ‘Favourite Actress in a New TV series’ for her role in ‘Quantico’.

Dwayne, on the other hand, will be next heard as voice cast in Disney’s animated film ‘Moana’, releasing on November 23.
