Chris Evans’ fans approve him as Sexiest Man Alive 2022

Chris Evans – best known as a Marvel superhero, dog lover and Twitter politician – is this year’s People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, but he had to wrest the title from John Oliver and Dwayne Johnson.

And his fans approve of the long-awaited honor.

The title was bestowed on the Captain America star on Monday’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Colbert briefly pitted Evans against his pal and late-night rival, John Oliver; However, since Evans wasn’t there to collect the title in person – much to Oliver’s Stop the Steal chagrin – Colbert aired a video packet of Johnson sharing the news with the Avengers star on the set of their upcoming vacation movie. “Red.”

But Johnson, who clinched the title in 2016, didn’t go quietly as he passed the sash (yes, there was a sash!) to Evans on set. The ‘Black Adam’ star refused to let Evans call her the ‘former’ Sexiest Man Alive, insisting he holds the title ‘forever’. Johnson then asked Evans to say something sexy to the cameras:

“Go vote tomorrow,” Evans said in his signature Captain America voice, referring to Tuesday’s US midterm elections.

Evans joins the list of former Sexiest Men including George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Michael B. Jordan, Brad Pitt, Idris Elba and last year’s all-time winner Paul Rudd. (Here’s an explanation of how the magazine makes its annual choice.)

The Gray Man and Knives Out star, 41, has reportedly come close to the title a few times. He also told People magazine that discussing the honor felt like “an odd form of humble boast.”

“Really, that’s just going to be a point of bullying,” he quipped. “It’s ripe for harassment.”

But fans didn’t see it that way — except for those campaigning for Rudd to retain the title this year that made the “Ant-Man” star’s name trend online. Here’s what people on social media had to say about the new awardee:

“I agree with this message,” wrote Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Garcelle Beauvais in People’s Instagram comments.

“Oh. My. I’m supposed to function in society after seeing this? That little tattoo sticking out… I’m. So. Thirsty. Congratulations,” another Twitter user wrote.

“From the inside to the outside!!!!” Added model tessholliday.

“Finally, it was like waiting for Leonardo DiCaprio to get his damn Oscar.” wrote a Twitter user in replies to People’s announcement tweet.

“Long, long overdue”, added Another.

“God this man is so sexy it’s killing me, he’s not mine.” wrote Another.

“Sorry for my language, but… IT WAS DAMN F— TIME!!!!” tweeted a fan. “We’ve been waiting for this for a long time, but this year it’s finally here. Congratulations Chris!!!! But you are the sexiest man alive every day, at least for all of us.”

“All about @Chris Evans makes him the #SexiestManAlive. His looks are just the delicious icing on top of all the amazing things that make him who he is!!” wrote Another.

Of course, there were critics, too, namely those who campaigned in People’s Replys for the honor to go to members of BTS-MLB pitcher Shohei Ohtani or “Supernatural” alumnus Jensen Ackles. (Maybe they missed Evans’ viral Buzzfeed puppy interview last summer.)

Evans told People that he’s glad he’s at a point in his career where he can “take his foot off the gas,” but the “Lightyear” star is still busy. He has directed three new films, including 2023’s Ghosted for AppleTV+, which he also produces, and is co-director of A Starting Point, the civic engagement platform launched in 2020.

“I feel like I have a little more freedom to take my time away from the industry and still find projects that satisfy my creative appetite when I come back,” he told People.

Incidentally, talk of Evans’ breakout role in 2011’s ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ also made headlines over the weekend when ‘Succession’ star Jeremy Strong told the Sunday Times that he was almost the Marvel’s body double in the prequel film -Stars would have played.

“They needed someone to play the young body of Captain America before he morphs into a superhero,” he said. Strong, who went to high school with Evans. “They said they needed a transformative actor and would use CGI to elevate the actual actor’s face and voice over my own.”

While Strong turned down the role — despite admitting he was “broke” at the time — Evans responded by saying, “It just goes to show the industry is so unpredictable. But I’m so happy it all worked out because I don’t think there was ever a plan B for Jeremy.”
