Who is Chris Evans' mom? 'Sexiest man alive' says ONE person will be thrilled with title
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Captain America star Chris Evans was voted People Magazine's ‘Sexiest man alive’ for 2022 on Monday, November 7. After winning the title Evans revealed that he was eager to share the news with his mother, who according to the actor is his biggest fan. Chris told People in an interview, "My mom will be so happy. She's proud of everything I do but this is something she can really brag about."
"That's absolutely something I want. Some things you want just for you, or just for my family and my friends. The most enjoyable aspect of my career right now is feeling secure enough to take my foot off the gas. I feel like I have a bit more freedom to take time away from the industry and still find projects that will satisfy my creative appetite when I return,” he remarked.
So who is Chris Evans' mom?
Chris Evans was born to Lisa and Robert Evans on June 13, 1981, in Boston, Massachusetts. His mother worked as an artistic director, while his father is a dentist, according to doveclove.com. Evans' life has been greatly influenced by Lisa, who inspired his passion for tap dancing and pushed him to accept the Captain America job. Evans said during a Jimmy Kimmel Live event that he believed that taking on the role of Captain America would result in considerable recognition and attention that would also affect his personal life, interfering with his ability to carry out regular activities away from the prying eyes of the public.
As a result, he originally declined the position, and it largely took his mother to persuade him otherwise. Lisa thought the opportunity might be his big break, and he couldn't afford to miss it. According to Digitalspy, Lisa also once affectionately dubbed her son a ‘dork’ for still being a fan of Disney movies. In 2011, she explained in an interview with GQ, "[He is] kind of a big dork. At 30, he still knows all the words to songs from The Little Mermaid."
Meanwhile, Evans' fame has increased over the years and he has even escaped the typecasting linked to the 'Caption America' role. Critics have raved about his performance in films like 'Knives Out', 'The Grey Man', 'Ghosted', and so on. The actor also discussed his career and future plans in the interview with PEOPLE magazine, revealing how his priorities have changed recently. A physical copy of the magazine issue with Evans on the cover will be released later in the week, where he talks about prioritizing a healthy work-life balance, spending more time at home and with his family, and his future in acting and relationships.
