Ladies and gentlemen, it's the result we've all been waiting for. We're, of course, talking about People's 2022 Sexiest Man Alive! From George Clooney to Chris Hemsworth, many of Hollywood's greatest and most handsome legends have received this badge of honor. Luckily, this year's winner, Chris Evans, is more than capable of filling those big boots as he appears on the magazine's cover, oozing sex appeal. How did Chris feel about receiving this title? Here's what we had to say…

Evans was announced as the winner during Monday night's episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and the news appeared on People's website shortly after. In the hilarious late-night skit, Colbert announced the two final contenders: John Oliver and Chris Evans. "The winner is Chris Evans!" he exclaimed. With this, Dwayne Johnson appeared in a clip to interview the winner. "Go vote tomorrow!" he said into the camera.

"My mom will be so happy," the Captain America actor joked in the magazine cover interview set to release this Friday. "She's proud of everything I do, but this is something she can really brag about." At the same time, Evans reckons the newfound fame will result in some teasing from his friends. "Really, this will just be a point of bullying," he laughed. "It's ripe for harassment." Taking the crown off last year's winner, Paul Rudd, Evans wants the people to know that he understands the gravity of the position. "I'm lucky to be in the discussion in any capacity," he confessed.

Evans has portrayed Marvel's Captain America for over ten years and most recently took on the role of Buzz Lightyear in Disney's Lightyear. The 2022 sexiest man alive is also set to appear next year on Apple TV+'s Ghosted, a movie alongside Ana de Armas. With his career well established, Evans discussed his desire to settle down with a wife and kids. "That's absolutely something I want," he confirmed to People. With this sexy title on his resume, we imagine there will be a long line of suitors who are more than happy to fill the position!
