Chris Evans Was Recently Named People’s Sexiest Man Alive
Evans was recently named People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2022. In the cover interview, the 41-year-old “Lightyear” star said he’s “very content” with his life currently. Evans shared that he’s now focusing on improving his work-life balance and being present for his loved ones.
He said, “That’s absolutely something I want: wife, kids, building a family. When you read about most of the best artists, whether it’s actors, painters, writers, most of them [admit] it wasn’t the work they made [that they are most proud of], it was about the relationships; the families they created, the love they found, the love they shared.”
The “Captain America” star also said that his ideology about family and friends is something that has rung true through his 41 years. He emphasized their importance and said he loves “the idea of tradition and ceremony.” Evans said, “I had a lot of that in my life, so the idea of creating that — I can’t think of anything better.”
Chris Evans On Becoming A Better Romantic Partner
Evans also said that as he’s gotten older, he’s improved a lot as a romantic partner. He said per People, “You spend a lot of time learning what’s been helpful and what hasn’t been. We all have patterns, hang-ups, or baggage that repeat and echo, so I’ve been able to identify where I need improvement and what works.”
The “Gray Man” star also spoke about how he now sees the strength and value of apologizing. He said, “If you’re able in those vulnerable moments to stay calm and listen, and say you’re sorry even if you don’t think you’ve done anything wrong because it’s not from your perspective it’s from the other person’s, I think that opens up a door in a very healthy way.”
He Has Dated Several High Profile Actresses
Evans has previously been in high-profile relationships with actresses like Jessica Biel, Jenny Slate, and Minka Kelly. The “Not Another Teen Movie” actor started dating Biel in 2001, and they co-starred in two films, “Cellular” and “London.”
After he and Biel split, Evans dated Kelly and was also linked to actress Sandra Bullock shortly after her 2010 divorce. In 2016, it was confirmed that Evans had begun dating Slate, but they eventually broke up in February 2017, only to resume their relationship again later that year. Eventually, Evans and Slate finally split for good in March 2018.
After their split, Evans spoke to USA Today about his dreams for a family in the future. He said, “I definitely want children. I definitely want a family. But you cannot put the cart before the horse. The family only works if it’s built off the extension of the love you feel for a person. If you all of a sudden want the kid more than you want the relationship, you may be on shaky ground.”
