People Magazine has named Chris Evans the Sexiest Man Alive in 2022. The 41-year-old American actor from Boston, Massachusetts says the honour is an awkward one and he expects his old friends to give him a hard time about it. 

“This whole thing is tough to be interviewed about,” The Gray Man star said, adding, “It feels like a weird form of humble bragging.” 

He joked this would be a point of bullying, “it’s ripe for harassment.” 

But his mother will be very happy, the actor told People. Evans’s mom Liza said, “I am not surprised at all. Our family will be beside themselves.” 

Evans is rumoured to be dating Alba Baptista, a 25-year-old Portuguese actress. 

Who is Alba Baptista? 

Alba Baptista is a Portuguese actor. She was born on July 10, 1997 in Lisbon, Portugal. Her mother is from Portugal, her father a Brazilian doctor. Baptista began her acting career young, at the age of 16 playing the lead in Simao Cayatte’s short film Miami. She then went on to become a major name in Portuguese cinema, working in films such as Caminhos Magnetykos by Edgar Pera and Equinocio by Ivo Ferreira. 

In 2019, Alba Baptista starred in Goncalo Waddington’s directorial debut Patrick. The film premiered at the San Sebastian International Film Festival and entered the competition. The next year, Baptista worked on Fatima along with Harvey Keitel, Sonia Braga and Joana Ribeiro. 

She made her English language debut in the Netflix series Warrior Nun. 

Warrior Nun released on July 2, 2020. 

The rumour that Alba Baptista and Chris Evans are dating was spread by fans on social media. This was after Evans’ rapid support for the second season of Warrior Nun which is Netflix’s lineup of November releases. 

Evans’ Halloween Instagram post also encouraged rumours that Baptista and Chris Evans were dating.
