When asked how she found out about the title, Isan, 16, told PEOPLE, “Actually, I was on Instagram. PEOPLE said, ‘Oh, we’re announcing the Sexiest Man Alive,’ and I was like, ‘Oh yes, can’t wait.’ “
But she was less than enthused when she found out who the winner was. “I wake up in the morning and it’s my dad. I was like, ‘This is not what I was expecting. This is not very fun,’ ” Isan joked at a press event announcing her role as the Golden Globe Ambassador.
And her father’s reaction may have made it even more awkward.
“When I called him the day after, not even about it, he was like, ‘Do you have anything to say to me?’ And I said, ‘No, I don’t think so.’ Then he said, ‘I’m the Sexiest Man Alive.’ I was like, ‘Oh, yeah. That. That thing. Uh, okay, cool. You’re welcome,’ ” Isan explained.
Unfortunately for Isan, escaping her father’s latest honor is becoming impossible.“It’s definitely a topic around school, so I’m the one being teased about it,” she said after being asked if she plans to taunt her dad with the title. However, she was quick to clarify that all the teasing has been “in a nice way,” adding, “It’s a joking kind of way, but it gets awkward sometimes.”
Of course, the actor, 46, isn’t the only one being celebrated these days.
On Wednesday, Isan was named the 2019 Golden Globes Ambassador by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).
During her speech, Isan said she was “honored” at the opportunity to be an ambassador and described the moment as “surreal.”
