People has named John Legend their “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2019, and he admitted to the publication that he “was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure.”
“Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m [also] following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!” The Fast & Furious actor held the position last year. Legend joins other previous “sexiest men” Blake Shelton, Dwayne Johnson, David Beckham and Adam Levine, among others.
One person who was particularly thrilled about the news is Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen. She took to Twitter and, with her characteristic humor, congratulated her husband. “my secret is out. I have fulfilled my dream of having boned @people’s sexiest man alive!! an honor!!!!!”
