People announced Chris Evans as this year’s Sexiest Man Alive on November 7. The magazine chooses its subjects, People’s former editor-in-chief Dan Wakeford claims that the magazine chooses its subjects not just based on a celebrity’s appearance but also on their general disposition.

Present-day Evans, 41, is  named PEOPLE’s 2022 Sexiest Man Alive and having to talk about it, but he is aware that at least one person will find this news exciting: He says, “My mum will be so thrilled.”

She is proud of everything I do, but she can really take pride in this. Evans is seated in front of the fireplace at a charming farmhouse on a farm outside of Atlanta, Georgia, on a lovely fall day.

The Boston native, clothed in a warm knit sweater and slacks and appearing to have completely understood this specific task, probably would have rather jumped into said fireplace than talk about being hot.

Rudd has gained popularity in recent years thanks to his roles in critically acclaimed Netflix original shows like “Living With Yourself” and as Ant-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The 52-year-old actor said his wife was “stupefied” by his victory.

I’m hoping now I’ll be invited to some of those steamy meals with Clooney and Pitt and B Jordan,” he told the magazine. “And I anticipate spending much more time aboard yachts. In the future, I hope to spend more time on yachts.”

On he went: “Additionally, I plan on practicing brooding in dim light. I enjoy giving thought to it a lot of time. I feel like this will help me develop a more secretive and introspective persona. Yes, I anticipate that with excitement.”
