LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Beating Paul Rudd, Chris Evans has become People magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive'. The selection was announced on Monday night, November 7, on Stephen Colbert's late night show and also on the magazine's website. "My mom will be so happy," Evans, 41, was quoted as saying by People. "She's proud of everything I do but this is something she can really brag about."

Evans joked in his interview that the title would only lead to being teased by his friends, "Really this will just be a point of bullying. It's ripe for harassment." Among those who could contribute to the teasing are co-stars and previous 'Sexiest Man Alive' winners like Paul Rudd, Ryan Reynolds and Chris Hemsworth. Other honorees in the past were John Legend, Dwayne Johnson, Idris Elba, Adam Levine, Richard Gere, Channing Tatum and David Beckham.
