Hollywood actor, Chris Evans, popularly known for his movie role as Captain America, has been named this year’s Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine.
People Magazine Names Chris Evans ‘Sexiest Man Alive’
The announcement was made on Monday, November 7, during “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” with help from John Oliver and Dwayne Johnson.
In a bit that aired on the show, Oliver sat in the show’s audience as Colbert announced the winner from two finalists – Oliver and Evans, who was called an “incandescent supernova of hotness.”
When Evans’ name was announced, a miffed Oliver prompted the audience to boo and stormed out angrily, demanding a “recount” as he exited.
The former “Captain America” star, who couldn’t appear on the show, was instead congratulated by Johnson on the set of their movie, “Red One.”
“It means a lot coming from a former Sexiest Man Alive,” Evans tells Johnson in the video.
Johnson, a 2016 Sexiest Man cover star, however, goes on to correct him: “I never give the title up….I’m Sexiest Man Alive in perpetuity, which means for life.”
Evans, confused, tries to get clarification, but Johnson stops him. “Let me ask you a question, brother. Am I alive?… Am I still sexy? You bet your sexy mouth I am. We’re sharing it!”
Evans agrees and the two sexiest men alive live, apparently, happily ever after. But not before Johnson prompts his co-star to say something “sexy” into the camera and Evans obliges.
A sash-sporting Evans stares down the camera, points and commands, “Go vote tomorrow.”
“My mom will be so happy,” Evans told People in the publication’s article revealing him as this year’s winner. “She’s proud of everything I do but this is something she can really brag about.”
Chris takes on the Sexiest Man Alive title that was last bestowed in November 2021 to actor Paul Rudd, 53. Other recent winners include: Michael B. Jordan, John Legend, Dwayne Johnson, Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Ryan Reynolds, and David Beckham
KanyiDaily recalls that in 2018, Idris Elba was announced as that year’s recipient by the weekly publication as the People Magazine’s 2018 Sexiest Man Alive.
