It goes without saying that actor Chris Evans is a very handsome man but is he the sexiest man alive?
People magazine have named Evans (41) as this years sexiest man alive and the actor is pretty chuffed about his new title.
Speaking to the mag, Evans shared he’s ready for the playful harassment he will receive from his friends and that he knows his mother will be very proud of him and proudly brag about his sex symbol status.
“She’s proud of everything I do but this is something she can really brag about”
Best known for playing the altruistic, self-sacrificing superhero Captain America in Marvel’s multi-billion-dollar Avengers franchise, and as a devoted, photo-happy dog dad to Dodger, his boxer mix, on social media, Evans is far more comfortable talking about his career, which has been on fire for the last decade. This year alone, he starred in Pixar’s Lightyear, Netflix’s Gray Man and filmed three new movies, including 2023’s Ghosted for AppleTV+ which he is also producing, and also still co-runs A Starting Point, the civic engagement platform he launched in 2020.
Now in his 40s, Evans is trying to prioritize a healthy work-life balance and spending as much time as possible at home and with his family in Boston.
“When it comes to seeking out the people I play it’s more of an issue of where the movie shoots,” he says. “I’m too old to be living out of a suitcase for six months and I’ve settled into a nicer phase where I’m just happy being at home.”
He’s also thinking a lot more about his future outside of acting — one that includes marriage and fatherhood.
“That’s absolutely something I want,” he says. Just don’t expect him to talk much about that when it happens: “Some things you want just for you, or just for my family and my friends.”
Twenty-two years into his career, Evans admits he’s ready to slow down a bit.
“The most enjoyable aspect of my career right now is feeling secure enough to take my foot off the gas,” he says. “I feel like I have a bit more freedom to take time away from the industry and still find projects that will satisfy my creative appetite when I return.”
