Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson named People's 'Sexiest Man Alive'

 

NEW YORK (AP) — Former WWE champ Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson can add People's "Sexiest Man Alive" title to his list of accomplishments.

 

 

The wrestler-turned-actor was crowned this year's winner Tuesday morning. The 44-year-old tells the magazine that the honor means he has "pretty much reached the pinnacle." Johnson is set to discuss his new status with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Tuesday.

 

Last year's winner was British soccer standout David Beckham. Other recent winners include Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine and Channing Tatum.

 

Johnson has lent his voice to a character in the animated Disney film "Moana," which hits theaters next week.

Court: Cleveland Doesn't Owe Lot Income Lost During Filming


CLEVELAND (AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court says the city of Cleveland isn't responsible for income lost by a downtown parking lot while crews filmed "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."

 

Filmed

The lot's owner had sued over lost parking fees, saying the approval of a permit that closed streets during filming amounted to an unconstitutional seizure of property. The company said that it lost significant daily income during two weeks of filming in 2013 and that its reputation was damaged.

A district court found Cleveland responsible for the lost income, but the Ohio Supreme Court overturned that order in a 6-1 ruling Tuesday.

The high court noted that one entrance to the lot remained accessible during filming and that the production company paid for hundreds of parking spots.

Beyonce hit the stage unintroduced when the show was about two-thirds over Wednesday, wearing multiple strands of pearls and a sheer, champagne-colored body-hugging dress. She looked happy and comfortable, dancing and clapping. The performance got a standing ovation.

 

"Daddy Lessons," on her recent album "Lemonade," is as close to a country song that Beyonce's ever released. The Dixie Chicks started covering the song on tour earlier this year.

 

Not everyone was prepared to welcome Beyonce with open arms. "Let me have my country music in peace" wrote one critic on Twitter. Another suggested that whoever had invited her should be fired.
