Actor Steven Yeun’s character, Glenn Rhee, dates one of the more attractive The Walking Deadcharacters, but Yeun is no slouch in that department himself. People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” issue, which goes on newsstands this Friday, is giving Yeun his due for what many people already know.
The magazine didn’t choose the 30-year-old as the sexiest man, but he’s still one of People’s top picks. During his photo shoot, Yeun explained what he considered attractive in others.
“The quality that I think is sexy … is style, kind of how you carry yourself,” he told People. “I don’t think it has to do with all the ‘sex’ part of it really. I think it’s just how you exude your presence in the world. I find how you are as a human as probably the sexiest thing.”
Apparently, Yeun himself wasn’t expecting to be on the list. “When I first heard that I was going to be in the issue, I asked if they were sure, that was the first thing I asked,” he said. “Maybe second question was, is this a joke? But it’s an honor. It’s really awesome.”
Yeun said his girlfriend (yes, he is taken) was the first to hear about the news, and she was very cool in finding out that she was dating one of the most attractive men on Earth.
“She was really chill about it, and she’s so supportive, so it was great,” he said.
For a glimpse of the photo shoot and Yeun shirtless, take a look at the video below.
