Chris Evans has been named the 'Sexiest Man Alive' for 2022

The Captain American star said his 'mom will be so happy'.

It's official: Chris Evans is the hottest man alive.

Captain America has been given the coveted title by People magazine, who name one lucky fella each year who is hotter than hot.

The 41-year-old said when he was growing up, the thought of being labeled not only attractive, but the top of the list in Hollywood would astound him.

"This would probably be the road to the cool table which I was not at," he humbly said.

He added: "My mom will be so happy. She's proud of everything I do but this is something she can really brag about.

"This whole thing is tough to be interviewed about. It feels like a weird form of humble bragging."

His mom Lisa said the whole family will be 'beside themselves' and she's touched her son has been given the recognition she thinks he deserves.

When asked whether he could see himself settling down with a special someone and starting a family, he seemed coy.

"That's absolutely something I want," he said. "Some things you want just for you, or just for my family and my friends."

He now joins the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Paul Rudd, Hugh Jackman, David Beckham, John Legend and Michael B. Jordan who have also been crowned the hottest man in Hollywood.

Rudd was last year's winner and he was equally blown away by the honour.

He told People: "When I think about myself, I think of myself as a husband and a father, like I’m that. I just hang out with my family when I’m not working. That’s what I kind of like the most."

His wife was ‘stupefied’ when she heard the news.

"But you know she was very sweet about it. After some giggling and shock, she said ‘Oh, they got it right.’ And that was very sweet. She was probably not telling the truth, but what’s she going to say?" he said.

"I’m hoping now that I’ll finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and B. Jordan."

"And I figure I’ll be on a lot more yachts. I’m excited to expand my yachting life.

"And I’ll probably try to get better at brooding in really soft light. I like to ponder. I think this is going to help me become more inward and mysterious. And I’m looking forward to that."
