Los Angeles (The Hawk): Chris Evans' mother is a well-known actress. Lisa believes it is "about time" that her son gets named Sexiest Man Alive.
The 41-year-old actor was announced as the winner of People magazine's annual award earlier this week, and his mother Lisa has stated that she will inform "everyone" about his triumph, according to femalefirst.co.uk.
She told the Boston-based WHDH TV 7NEWS news channel: "'Of course, it's about time!' was my reaction. I gloat when he's potty trained and when he's walking, but this is something that everyone will know about. It makes me very pleased."
While Lisa was not startled by the 'Avengers: Endgame' actor's victory, she did disclose that her son was.
"He's always amazed at his own success, and he's always amazed at what people think of him," she said.
And, while she is pleased of Chris' new status, she believes his pals will use it to mock him.
"(His pals) will undoubtedly give him trouble about it, but - they're quite amusing," she remarked.
When his victory was revealed, Evans stated that his mother would be "overjoyed."
He stated: "My mother will be overjoyed. She is proud of everything I do, but this is something she is especially pleased of."
The 'Knives Out' star stated earlier this week that now that he is in his 40s, he needs to take better care of himself.
He stated: "I used to be able to eat anything I wanted and perform a couple of workouts per week and be fine.
"That is no longer the case. I wear it if I've had two beers. I haven't had to play a Captain America role in a long time, so things like diet and fitness routine haven't been on my mind. But as you become older, things click and hurt, it's harder to wake up, you have less energy...
"You know what it is, don't you? It was the fact that it happened so swiftly. I wasn't thinking about any of this a year ago. I was fortunate enough to not think much of it in my 30s, and then I turned 40 and it all came at once."
