Chris Evans has been named the “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine.

“My mom will be so happy,Evans told People. “She’s proud of everything I do, but this is something she can really brag about.”

Evans succeeds fellow “Avengers” actor Paul Rudd as the recipient of the award. Ryan Reynolds and Chris Hemsworth are two more actors from the superhero film series who have been former recipients.

The musicians Adam Levine and John Legend, the actors Dwayne Johnson, Richard Gere, Idris Elba, and Channing Tatum, and the soccer star David Beckham are just some of the other people who have been honored in the past.

“Really this will just be a point of bullying,” Evans joked in an interview. “It’s ripe for harassment.”

The year 2000’s “The New Comers” marked Evans’s debut in the film industry with a role in the film. In the two “Fantastic Four” movies that were produced between 2005 and 2007, he played the role of the heroic Johnny Storm. And after acting in the 2011 film “Captain America: The First Avenger,” he had a significant surge in popularity.

Since then, he has portrayed Captain America in ten different Marvel films before announcing his departure from the series with the release of “Avengers: Endgame” in 2019.

Evans also provided the voice of Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s “Lightyear,” and he portrayed a psychopathic assassin who attempted to murder Ryan Reynolds in “The Gray Man” from Netflix.

Evans expressed his interest in getting married and starting a family. He said “That’s absolutely something I want.”

However, he did say that he did not anticipate talking publicly very much about his private life. “Some things you want just for you, or just for my family and my friends.”

The actor has stated that he believes winning the title of Sexiest Man Alive will be a watershed moment for him.

“It’s something that as I become old and saggy I can look back on and say ‘I remember then,’ “Chris Evans said.

“I’m lucky to be in the discussion in any capacity,” he continued.
