    Captain Hottie! Chris Evans Reigns as 'Sexiest Man Alive' 2022

    Let's be real: He's the man who's charmed us with his shield-wielding valor, not to mention, that iconic cable-knit sweater in Knives Out. Chris Evans doesn’t need a super serum to be named the hottest in the land.

    "My Mom Will Be So Happy!"

    People magazine rolled out the red carpet and handed the tiara or should we say, the shield of "Sexiest Man Alive" to the 41-year-old Boston heartthrob for 2022. As reported by Global News, Evans, in his classic down-to-earth manner, shared the credit with his forever cheerleader, “My mom will be so happy,” he quipped. "She's proud of everything I do but this is something she can really brag about.”

    Middle-School Evans Approves!

    Sure, he is America's golden boy now, but turns out, middle-school Evans had a bit of an outsider vibe. Picturing himself with this newfound title back in those days, he imagined, “He’d be pumped. This would probably be the road to the pool table, which I was not at.”

    Beyond The 'Sexy' Tag

    He was a little shy about the whole 'sexy' title. "This whole thing is tough to be interviewed about," he shared, hinting at the awkwardness of this particularly flattering form of attention. As for his buddies? Expect some good-natured ribbing! "The new title is sure to give my friends something to bully me about,” Evans chuckled.

    From Shield to Silver Screen: The Journey Continues

    Since donning the iconic shield, Evans has been unstoppable, contributing to 11 Marvel movies. Besides his well-acclaimed voicing of Buzz Lightyear in the film 'Lightyear', he's been celebrated for roles in 'The Gray Man' and 'Snowpiercer'. But the star has more on his horizon than just film roles. He revealed a personal yearning, “Wife, kids, building a family, that’s absolutely something I want.”

    While he dreams of family, his heart, for now, belongs to Dodger, his Boxer-mix rescue pup.

    Evans joins the hall of fame alongside charismatic celebs like Paul Rudd, George Clooney, Michael B. Jordan, and more who’ve been honored with the 'Sexiest Man Alive' accolade.

    Time to toast to Hollywood's Captain Hottie! And remember, behind the 'sexy', is an actor with big dreams, a big heart, and a love for cable-knit sweaters.
