Being named "Sexiest Man Alive" like Chris Evans was last week may not exactly be relatable to most of us, but being mercilessly roasted by our best friends certainly is, and in that regard Chris Evans is just like the rest of us.

Evans' fellow Marvel star Chris Hemsworth told Jimmy Kimmel Monday that Evans' big announcement as People magazine's "Sexist Man Alive" for 2022 lit up the text chain that all of the stars of Avengers have together.

But it was not to congratulate the man who plays Captain America on his new superlative.

Rather, it was to dunk on him for his People cover pose, like any true friend would.

See the clip below.

For his big People moment, the magazine ran a cover photo of Evans leaning up against a wall, with his hands behind his back.

And according to Hemsworth, he and fellow Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr. and Jeremy Renner couldn't stop laughing about the photo of their friend.

Hemsworth told Kimmel:

"We have an Avengers text chain, and it very quickly was like, 'What are you doing with your hands back there?'"
"It was like, [Robert] Downey [Jr.] said he was being arrested, I said it was a beautiful mugshot, and Jeremy Renner said a series of things which we won't repeat. ... Filthy."

When your friend is named the hottest person on the planet, you gotta keep him humble somehow. Hemsworth should know, having been named "Sexiest Man Alive" himself in 2014.

Evans seemed to anticipate the dunks in his interview with People for the "Sexiest Man Alive" issue.

He joked to the magazine:

"Really this will just be a point of bullying. It's ripe for harassment."

On Twitter, fans were delighted by all the roasting.

Hemsworth also told Kimmel that despite the ribbing, he considers Evans' new title a "passing of the torch" and that he is proud of his friend. Aww.
