Fans are rushing to social media to praise Paul Judd as ‘better than ever’ after he won the People’s Sexiest Man Alive title this week — and photos prove he’s barely aged since he hit our screens thirty years ago.

The actor became a household name when Cher’s unlikely heart palpitation hit Clueless in 1995, in which he played Alicia Silverstone’s clumsy ex-stepbrother Josh Lucas, just 26 years old.

And this week, the Hollywood star, 52, won People’s Sexiest Man Alive title, raising the hottest topic of how he manages to look so young.

The father of two has barely aged since making his film debut as a fresh-faced 22-year-old in a 1991 Nintendo ad, before starring in the 1992 drama series Sisters, where he played a supporting role as aspiring filmmaker Kirby Quimby.

With an almost lineless face when he appears on the cover of People magazine with the hashtag #crushforlife, Paul looks almost the same as when he appeared on our screens thirty years ago.

And while Tom Cruise, 59, sparked rumors when he recently appeared at a baseball game in San Francisco and looked plumper, Paul Rudd’s good looks seem very natural.

In August, Paul’s first Nintendo ad went viral, surprising fans that he had barely aged since he appeared on our screens in 1991.

In the ad, Rudd plays classic video games on a giant screen and shows Rudd and a few friends walking to a seemingly abandoned drive-in movie theater, where Rudd tosses a Nintendo cartridge into a console.

He goes on to play F-Zero, Pilotwings, The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past, and SimCity when more show up to watch him play.

In 2015, Paul starred in Ant-Man at age 45, looking barely a day older than when he first appeared in the hit movie Clueless in the 1990s.

At the time, followers were amazed at how similar the current Paul Rudd looks to how he fared as a fresh 22-year-old.

He’s not getting older, HE just LOOKS better, somehow,” one person wrote.

“Happy 52nd birthday, Paul Rudd!” another wrote several months ago. “And to think you could shoot this commercial today and nobody can tell the difference!!”

“Why does Paul Rudd look the same then as he does now?” asked a third.

And this week, in accepting the accolade, the star showed his trademark sense of humor when he spoke of the honor, even admitting that he would get “so much grief” from his friends.

Paul explained: “As it should be. I would. I mean, I’m going to hit it hard. I’m going to own this. I’m not going to try to be like “Oh, I’m so humble.”

‘I have business cards made. But all my friends will destroy me and I expect from them. And that’s why they’re my friends.’

One of Paul’s friends, actor and comedian Seth Rogen, didn’t hurt him, but complimented his friend when he tweeted, “No arguing here.”

The Clueless actor has big plans now that he’s given the title, including private events with his fellow iconic handsome men.

He explained: “I hope now that I will finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and [Michael] B Jordan.

“And I think I’ll be on a lot more yachts. I am excited to expand my hunting life. And I’ll probably try to get better at brooding in very soft light. I like to think. I think this is going to help me become more inward and mysterious. And I’m looking forward to that.’

Paul told People that the only person he told about the honor beforehand was his wife of nearly 20 years Julie Yaeger.

Of her reaction to the news, he said: “She was stunned. But you know she was very nice to it. After some giggles and shock, she said, “Oh, they got it right.” And that was very sweet. She probably wasn’t telling the truth, but what is she going to say?’

Since he and Julie have two children together — son Jack, 17, and daughter Darby, 12 — Paul said he thinks of himself above all as a family man.
