Chris Evans may have put down Captain America's shield but he's got a new badge of honor: he's been named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.
"My mom will be so happy," he told the magazine for its cover story, which hits newsstands on Friday. "She's proud of everything I do but this is something she can really brag about."
He also knows that he's likely to be teased by close friends. "Really this will just be a point of bullying," he joked in an interview.
People interviewed Evans, 41, at a Georgia farmhouse, where the actor talked about finding a better work-life balance. "The most enjoyable aspect of my career right now is feeling secure enough to take my foot off the gas," he said.
The actor told People he's thinking about marriage and having a family, saying, "That's absolutely something I want."He said he didn't expect to talk publicly much about his private life though. "Some things you want just for you, or just for my family and my friends."
