Chris Evans is apparently People Magazine’s 2021 Sexiest Man Alive

Cenotaph Remembrance Parade

I keep forgetting that Michael B. Jordan is our reigning Sexiest Man Alive, at least according to People Magazine, the internet and your aunt who watched Black Panther five times. MBJ was named SMA in November 2020 and he played along really well, doing an exclusive photoshoot with the magazine and giving them a nice interview. I expect this year’s SMA will do the same, only the surprise has been ruined! People Magazine got scooped by Page Six. Page Six says that Chris Evans will be the newly installed dictator of your drawers.

Chris Evans has landed People magazine’s coveted “Sexiest Man Alive” cover, Page Six is told by multiple sources. The “Knives Out” hunk was originally slated to take the mantle last year, but insiders tell us that bosses thought it was better to wait a year after he accidentally uploaded a picture of his penis online.

Evans — who will voice Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s upcoming “Toy Story” spinoff — will be unveiled on the cover of People next week.

Last year, Michael B. Jordan won the title, and a source told us: “Chris was in discussions to take the cover last year, but it was not great timing.”

In September 2020, Evans appeared to accidentally upload nude photos of himself while attempting to post an Instagram video. Sources at the mag insisted the penis pic had nothing to do with Evans not being named the 2020 Sexiest Man Alive. Reps for People magazine declined to comment.

[From Page Six]

Eh, I think Evans probably didn’t get it last year because A) MBJ had/has more projects to hustle than Chris Evans and B) after a summer and fall full of the racial justice movement, People wanted their SMA to be a Black man. Those kinds of calculations matter, and People Mag didn’t want #PeopleSoWhite trending on social media. Plus it helped that MBJ was deserving and he’s enormously popular across many demographics. As for Evans… like, my favorite in the Chris Wars is obviously Chris Pine. That man IS sex. Evans is okay. I think he’s way too cozy with MAGA douches and he can be sort of oblivious at times. But his dog is cute and he’s got a great body, so there you go.

PS… I just remembered that sketchball moment in the summer of 2020 when Chris was hooking up with Lily James! THAT is why he didn’t want to be People’s SMA last year. He hopes people have forgotten all about that!

    He is a great dog dad.

  2. Chica1971 says:

    Like the dog and like that he is one of the best Chris, but he is milquetoast for me

    • Lucy2 says:

      That’s exactly how I feel.

    • minx says:

      He’s okay, but dyed beards are a turnoff for me. He’s 40 and should have a few grays in there. I’ve been watching my husband’s beard for 43 years lol.

      • Mary Mae says:

        @Minx THANK YOU! I do like a good beard and Chris has a pretty good one, but I just couldn’t figure out for the life of me what was off about it to me.

        Now that you’ve said it, I agree it’s most likely dyed and would probably look better if he went more natural, but it’s ultimately his look and I guess that’s what he prefers.

        Looking forward to when he embraces any salt and pepper.

      • Courtney B says:

        Nah, you can see the gray. Not as much as if his hair was super dark like an Oscar Isaac. He may dye it for movies but in recent zoom videos you can clearly see the gray.

      • minx says:

        I’ve only seen him in movies.

    • Eating Popcorn says:

      @Chica1971 He is the milquetoast Chris! Give me a Hemsworth or a Pine any day of the week!

    • Myra says:

      Agreed. None of the Chrises do anything for me but if I had to choose, milquetoast Chris it is.

    • Shirl says:

      I’ve used that exact word to describe him too!

  3. Miss Margo says:

    I don’t know… Chris Evans kinda seems like a d bag. And I’m sick and tired of all these white guys on the cover most years. There are sexy Asian men, black men, Indian men that are WAY hotter than Chris Evans.

  4. milliemollie says:

    Chris Pratt is crying somewhere. Im sure that title is something that the Crisp Rat wants.

    My crush on Evans died when he cozied up with Ted Cruz and Dan Crenshaw for his website that no one asked for.

  5. Alissa says:

    Evans is definitely my favorite Chris. Chris pine seems like a great guy but does absolutely nothing for my lady parts. I’m pretty sure you’re right about why MBJ was sexiest man alive last year, but he was a good choice.

  6. Erica says:

    Lesbian here but I’m not blind. Have you seen his ass? Have you seen his posts about his dog? Have you seen him play piano?

    I approve.

    • Xoxo says:

      No lies detected.

    • Lightpurple says:

      That’s “America’s ass!”

    • Courtney B says:

      100% agree. Everyone who works with him seems to love him too, especially the women, so that’s a plus in my book. (Forget Lizzo, look up his interactions with Yvette Nicole brown.) If I ever hear a metoo about him I’ll cry. And I’ll always admire him for speaking so honestly about anxiety and mental illness. It’s often kept under wraps and especially with men who don’t want to seem ‘weak’.

      • Lightpurple says:

        The interactions with Yvette are hilarious. And there is clearly deep love between him and Octavia Spencer.

    • FHMom says:

      He gets my seal of approval, too

    • Nessa says:

      Lol, my sister is a lesbian and I told her that Chris E didn’t really do it for me, and she told me I was wrong.

  7. fluffybunny says:

    I’d hit that. And the dog is cute too.

  8. TheOriginalMia says:

    Love Chris. Love Dodger. Looking forward to the spread and I’d better get several pictures of Dodger.

    Between him & CPine, I’m very very happy.

    • JJ says:

      Agree with this! He is my number one Chris, Chris Pine #2. Hated Captain America as a character until he came along and gave me some fantasies I didn’t expect!

  9. rawiya says:


  10. Nina says:

    he’s just so bland

  11. Mia4s says:

    I was surprised just because when a bigger star agrees to do this it is normally in the context of publicity for a project. But hearing he was supposed to be last year makes sense. Last year I think he was pushing that prestige Apple TV series that kind of went nowhere? I can’t remember the name. Hearing why they waited until this year though? LOL! That’s funny.

    • Courtney B says:

      Defending Jacob. And it was a rare success for Apple TV at the time. It was a limited run, based on a book with a pretty definite conclusion, so no season 2.

      • Mia4s says:

        That was it! I know it was a miniseries/limited series, I just mean that they made a big publicity and awards push for it and it got a medium response at best and nothing from major awards groups. Not that I think a Sexiest Man Alive cover would have changed that, LOL!….Or would it? 😂 Nah. Didn’t save Michael B Jordan’s movie from being dumped (and apparently terrible).

  12. Eurydice says:

    Evans and Pine are kind of dueling foreheads, but my vote goes to Evans.

  13. kat says:

    Ugh him travelling to England in the middle of a pandemic to hookup with someone will never be that forgiveable. I lost a couple of friends after they did similar risky stuff

    • milliemollie says:

      Don’t you know he was there for work?!

      Even though it’s been over a year and no project has been announced or published. He’s just another rich celebrity who does what he wants.

      • kat says:

        aha, yeah. Work! Even if it was.. he’s just an actor. Not important enough to travel during a bloody pandemic for work lol

    • Gavin says:

      Oh girl if you think that was bad you should’ve seen Sebastian Stan, Chris’s MCU costar. Ive never seen an actor so unapologetically party and jetset while people were dying bc of actions like his. He & his gf were using less fortunate countries to loophole into ones that had protective measures to protect less fortunate people. He used his EU passport to enter Europe when he was blocked as an American from entry. He was blocked bringing his gf directly from Europe so he decided to loophole thru easier countries like Mexico etc. bc who cares about brown ppl right? I haven’t even see anything but the og Captain America film so I didn’t recognize the guy at first. But now I know all about this guy bc his behavior and selfishness stood out so much from start of pandemic. So Chris is all good to me cuz to date there’s no actor who was as awful as Stan. It takes an especially awful person to do what he did & then pretend to be just a hot nice guy actor. Lost my grandma in Mexico to COVID. If I see his name in a cast list I’m not supporting the movie.

      You gotta be a real piece of work to go clubbing or yachting while masked slaves wait on you while their ICUs are overwhelmed cuz of travelers like him 👀 TEAM CHRIS EVANS!!

  14. girl_ninja says:

    I don’t care about People Mag’s Sexist but I dig Mr. Christopher Evans and his dog Dodger. And the fact that we’re practically neighbors who could go on a Christmas tree picking date at one of the lovely tree farms and then have a private tree trim in his cozy Massachusetts home and make out by his fireplace after I make us a delicious pot of zuppa toscana soup is just a cherry on top.

    • AmelieOriginal says:

      Sounds like a great Hallmark movie to me (minus the makeout scene, maybe on Lifetime lol!)!

  15. Lena says:

    So MBJ was actually second place? That’s disappointing. And Im disappointed
    in this years SMA after laineygossip got me excited for the “maybe Keanu Reeves” cover.

  16. Tiffany says:

    Jonathan Majors…having a great year.

    Yahya Abdul Mateen II….Emmy winner and also having a great year.

    Riz Ahmed….coming off a nomination season and also had a good year.

    John Cho…. Cowboy Bepop is gonna be massive.

    What I’m saying is, there were options.

  17. Sunday says:

    How did they overlook Oscar Isaac? Especially after Dune and that red carpet moment, both of which are infinitely hotter than *checks notes* Buzz freaking Lightyear??

    • Tiffany says:

      He might consider it next year as part of the Scenes from A Marriage nomination promotion, especially if he wins a Emmy.

    • MrsBump says:

      Yes !! and the fact that my bf is a dead ringer for Oscar Isaac has nothing to do with it 😉

  18. AmelieOriginal says:

    I guess he was going to be SMA eventually, I remember Chris Hemsworth got it awhile back. I had a minor crush on Chris Evans for a bit but the MCU actor I currently have the biggest crush on is Sebastian Stan. I can’t see him ever being SMA, he’s super shy and awkward in interviews. But I’m not mad it’s Chris Evans, Dodger is very cute. But there are so many POC actors they could have chosen, I checked the list and for the last 3 years SMA had been a black man (Idris Elba, John Legend, and Michael B. Jordan). Were they afraid People readers would riot if it was another man of color for the fourth year in a row?

  19. Barbie1 says:

    Go Chris! Handsome and hot. Well deserved.

  20. GandalfTheMeh says:

    I like him and all but sexy? Nah. He’s just not doing it for me.

  21. Snazzy says:

    My fave Chris 😍

  22. Aud says:

    I’m dying at them saying it has nothing to do with his nudes.

    I have mixed feelings about him. I like his humour, dog, style, Patriots love, lgbtq support and openness about anxiety.

    But he just seems kinda like a douche with commitment issues despite appearing to be so great.

    • Sally says:

      Sooo… a successful male actor? 😂
      Seriously though, SMA stopped having any weight a decade ago, good for his team, I guess, but I couldn’t care less. I like him in certain things and he isn’t a bad actor, so I’m not mad, but pretending that his “transgressions” aren’t just normal Hollywood behaviour, quite tame normal HW behaviour tbh, is a bit silly. None of them are pure lambs, they all have done and said “problematic” things and have stepped over some bodies to get where they are rn.

      • Aud says:

        I more mean that he seems like a great guy but then he slips and laughs while slut shaming black widow with Jeremy Renner. It makes him seem like he’s faking it and sometimes slips up and his inner douche comes out.

    • May day says:

      He seems to like British girls. And perhaps he just hasn’t found THE ONE yet?

  23. Best Hollywood Chris is Christopher Lloyd. #fightme 🙂

  24. Eve says:

    Does nothing for me nowadays.

  25. Jules says:

    it’s all so silly, can’t take any of it seriously

  26. Scrambled Eggs says:

    The only time he seemed genuinely interesting to me was that period when he was dating Jenny Slate. But then I learned about his crazy stans and then they broke up and he’s just…fine? Oh well.

  27. T.Fanty says:

    Wait, I know there is a whole other conversation going on but what is the story with Chris Pine and the MAGA crowd? All I know about that dude is that he hit the wall HARD. He looked worn out in the second Wonder Woman movie.

  28. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    The sexiest man alive should exude sex appeal. He should have a drool factor. Provocative. Seductive. Titillating. Sensual. Racy. What he shouldn’t be is someone I’d like to meet for coffee. Chris looks like a Folger’s advertisement.

    • Eurydice says:

      Some people find that sexy; not everyone wants the bad boy. But, to tell the truth, I’ve never thought any of the People SMAs have been provocative, seductive, titillating, etc., etc. – just handsome in their own way.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        You’re right. And personally, I’m not talking bad boy either (even though I likes me some bad lol). I’d just expect more visual range enticing a closer look to inside attributes.

  29. Amy Bee says:

    I’m a fan of Chris Evans but People’s Sexiest Man Alive is just boring now. It’s time for People to stop doing this issue.

  30. Gina says:

    What about Regé-Jean Page?

  31. hmmm?? says:

    Waiting for the day Chris Evans comes out of the closet…

  32. jferber says:

    Waiting for the day Chris Evans seriously dates Lizzo. If I love her, as a straight woman, why the fuck can’t a straight man love her like she deserves? Have you seen her as one of the 50 best dressed people in InStyle? She looks like Cleopatra, for God’s sake. And she’s hella talented and has a sensitive and good soul. Damn you, Chris. Date her for me, if not for yourself. She’s a real keeper.

  33. Anabe says:

    Best Hollywood Chris is Meloni. Duh.

  34. Greta Garbo says:

    lol. Come on. The guy is over forty and wouldn’t be capable of getting it up more than once a night without the aid performance enhancing drugs.

    • death by bacon says:

      I will fight you for disparaging Melononi and over 40? people. 🍑🍑🍑👨‍🦳👩‍🦳🧓👵

  35. Bkb9450 says:

    I think Rege Jean Page would have made an excellent SMA!!!!!!

  36. Normades says:

    Nice of page 6 to remind us of the penis incident. I had totally forgotten. Lol

    • Normades says:

      These are terrible quotes. MBJ was one of the only “sexiest man alive” who is actually sexy. This makes it seem like they wanted to give it to the vanilla white bro but couldn’t so they gave it to the black dude.

  37. Rosa says:

    Great choice. I love him. My favourite actor.

  38. MelOn says:

    I hope there are plenty of pictures of Dodger…..
