Both actors chatted with E! News this past Monday during the 5th Annual Celebration of Black Cinema and Television in Los Angeles, where he was asked about taking the crown this year.
“Chris is dope; that’s my guy. We’ve played the same character before,” said Jordan, referencing their respective turns as Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch) in different Fantastic Four film iterations.
Jordan also added, “Whenever I see him, there’s a lot of love.”
He went on to joke about the honor and teasing Evans, saying, “Once you got it, it’s great, but then it just gives all your boys and your friends the opportunity to talk as much s— about you as [possible], so I’m gonna talk some s—!”
Jordan being named Sexiest Man Alive in 2020 kicked off three years in a row where Marvel actors took the title, including Paul Rudd in 2021.
Chris Evans shares that is mom will be so happy to hear the news.
He went on to admit with a laugh that the honor “is tough to be interviewed about,” explaining, “It feels like a weird form of humble bragging.”
Jordan shared, “When my grandmother was alive, it was something that she collected, and then my mom naturally reads it a lot and my aunts as well. This is one that they’re definitely going to have a special place for.”
In 10 years, Jordan said at the time, he hopes “to be maybe directing a little more, acting less, producing a lot more.” (Creed III, which hits theaters March 3, marks his big-screen directorial debut.)
“Just growing, whatever the next evolution of me is,” Jordan told PEOPLE. “Hopefully a family by then, I’m going to throw that in the universe. I want to make an impact all over the world and not just through the roles that I play.”
