While Chris Evans getting crowned as PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2022 was an exciting feat for Captain America’s fans and a proud moment for the actor’s mother, as he remarked in his interview with the magazine, it also became a standing joke amongst many other male celebrities who insisted that they were more deserving of the title than The Gray Man star.
From DC’s Black Adam actor, The Rock, to Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi, various such stars had a take on the matter as they all claimed to be better candidates than the Knives Out actor. And now, yet another celeb seems to have entered the battle with the Creed star Michael B. Jordan having his own hilarious approach with regard to the subject.
Michael B. Jordan on Chris Evans Being Declared as the Sexiest Man Alive
Chris Evans is not the first MCU actor to have won the tag of the Sexiest Man Alive and he certainly won’t be the last. Multiple other Marvel actors, including Ant-Man star Paul Rudd and Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds have owned the title before the fan-favorite Captain America did. And Michael B. Jordan recently shared his two cents about the same.
Speaking with E! News during a red carpet event, Jordan shared his views about Evans bagging the popular title as he sung high praise of his fellow MCU co-star, claiming that he’s “dope” and “awesome.” But the Black Panther star also had some more insight on the topic as he remarked how when any actor earns the label of the Sexiest Man Alive, it also paves the way for all the other men around him to poke endless fun at the person in question. That being said, Jordan then went ahead to do the same as he joked about it.
