Actor Chris Evans has been named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive for 2022, gracing two magazine covers to commemorate his title. “HELLO CHRIS EVANS IS THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE,” one user tweeted. “SEXIEST MAN ALIVE CHRIS EVANS INDEED!!!” another user shared. While fans are excited about the news, there was a time when Evans was supposed to be honored with the same title a few years ago.
As previously reported by Page Six, the “Captain America” star was said to be People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2020. However, after accidentally sharing a nude image of himself on Instagram, the publication pulled the plug and took the title away from him that year. After gaining a lot of attention, Evans responded on Twitter by using his platform to remind fans to vote during the next election — but the damage was already done. Instead, in 2020, fellow actor Michael B. Jordan was named the Sexiest Man Alive. Last year, Paul Rudd was honored instead of Evans. But as they say, good things come to those who wait (and wait).
To celebrate the title, Evans and Dwayne Johnson, People’s choice for Sexiest Man Alive in 2016, performed a funny sketch on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, where Evans referred to Johnson as a “former Sexiest Man Alive.” Johnson disagreed and insisted he’s the sexiest man “for life.”
