We take you back to the moment when Captain America actor Chris Evans was named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive. However, this led to his co-stars Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth criticizing the actor. MCU alumni participate in a group chat where they stay connected. It was here that the actor was brutally roasted for winning.
Chris Evans says the ‘sexiest man alive’ title is ripe for bullying
When it was announced that Chris would be voted Sexiest Man Alive, he already knew that he would be mocked by his fellow MCU members. The actor also spoke to People magazine, saying, “It would just be a mockery, really. This is ripe for persecution.”
In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2014, Thor actor Chris Hemsworth talked about how the MCU cast reacted to Chris Evans being named Sexiest Man Alive in a group chat. The actor said: “We have a chain of messages about the Avengers, and very quickly the question came up: what are you doing there with your hands? It was like Downey said he was arrested, I said it was a nice shot, and Jeremy Renner said a bunch of things that we won’t repeat… Dirty.” He then concluded by saying, “He’s a really sexy dude. Well done, you know? Thanks to parents!” Chris Hemsworth received this title from People magazine back in 2014.
Chris Evans shared that his mom would be very happy if he won the title of “Sexiest Man Alive.”
Chris Evans spoke to People magazine in 2022 when he received the award and said: “My mom will be so happy. She’s proud of everything I do, but this is what she can really brag about.” The actor also said that if someone had told him back in high school that he would be named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, he would have been delighted. He added: “This might be the path to the cool table I wasn’t at.” When asked about his thoughts on the title, Evans responded, “It’s hard to do interviews about all this,” he said with a laugh. “It’s like a weird form of humblebrag.”
In addition to Chris Evans, the title has previously been held by Paul Rudd, Michael B. Jordan, John Legend, David Beckham and Chris Hemsworth.
