Even though Chris Evans has hung up his shield as Captain America, he still has a reason to be proud: he was recently awarded People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.
The winners of People’s choice were revealed on Monday night on Stephen Colbert’s late night show and on the magazine’s website. Evans, who played Captain America in Marvel’s films for nearly a decade, succeeds Paul Rudd as the team’s leader.
For the cover article, he said, “My mom will be so happy,” when the issue reaches newsstands on Friday. “She’s proud of everything I do but this is something she can really brag about.”
He is also cognizant of the fact that his closest pals are likely to tease him. In an interview, he joked, “Really this will just be a point of bullying.” According to the author, “It’s ripe for harassment.”
Who Were the Previous Winners?
Co-stars and former Sexiest Man Alive winners including Paul Rudd, Ryan Reynolds, and Chris Hemsworth are expected to heckle him. After Mel Gibson in 1985, Chris Hemsworth became the first Avenger to receive People magazine’s yearly prize.
John Legend, Dwayne Johnson, Idris Elba, Adam Levine, Richard Gere, Channing Tatum, and David Beckham are just a few of the other celebrities who have been honoured in the past.
Evans, 41, was interviewed by People at his farmhouse in Georgia, where he discussed striking a better balance between work and personal life. “The most enjoyable aspect of my career right now is feeling secure enough to take my foot off the gas”.
Chris Evans Acting Career
Chris Evans made his acting debut in the 2000 film The New Comers, and he has since portrayed the superhero Johnny Storm in two Fantastic Four films (2005 and 2007). In 2011, however, with the release of Captain America: The First Avenger, he became a household name.
Since he’s played the good guy in ten different Marvel movies before finally hanging up his cape and shield in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. As a result of his roles as the voice of Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s film and as a cruel assassin aiming to assassinate Ryan Reynolds in Netflix’s The Gray Man, released this year, Evans has become a very bankable star.
Is He Planning to Get Married?
The actor told People, “That’s absolutely something I want.” when asked if he was considering getting married and starting a kid.
But he did say he didn’t anticipate sharing much personal information with the general public. “There are things I wish to keep secret from everyone save you and my closest friends and family.”
The native Bostonian also maintains his role with the civic engagement platform A Starting Point, which he co-founded in 2020. Evans is confident that receiving People’s honour will be a watershed moment in his life.
“It’s something that as I become old and saggy I can look back on and say ‘I remember then…'” Evans said. “I’m lucky to be in the discussion in any capacity.”
