Chris Evans, an American actor best known for his role as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) series of films has reportedly scooped People magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ 2021 title.
Multiple sources told Page Six that the “Knives Out” hunk was originally slated to take the mantle last year, but the organizers felt it was better to wait a year after he accidentally uploaded a picture of his penis online.
In September 2020, Evans appeared to accidentally upload nude photos of himself while attempting to post an Instagram video. The “Captain America” star, 40, unintentionally shared the photo to his then 5.7 million followers while playing a game of “Heads Up!”. It was revealed within a gallery of videos and pictures.
He quickly deleted the image, but it was ultimately too late as screenshots were posted to Twitter, sending fans into a frenzy.
Evans who will voice Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s upcoming “Toy Story” spinoff, will reportedly be unveiled on the cover of People next week.
Last year, Michael B. Jordan won the title and a source told Page Six;
“Chris was in discussions to take the cover last year, but it was not great timing.”
