Matthew McConaughey arrives for the Spanish premiere of his new film "Sahara" at the Palacio de la Musica Cinema on April 13, 2005 in Madrid, Spain. Idris Elba attends the Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2018 at the Theatre Royal on November 18, 2018 in London, England. Chris Evans attends the "The Gray Man" Netflix Special Screening at Zoopalast on July 18, 2022 in Berlin, Germany.

Take a stroll through the last 20 years of People’s Sexiest Men Alive. This year, the award went to Captain America actor Chris Evans, one year after his Marvel co-star Paul Rudd won the title.

Evans, 41, said about the sexy honor: “I think we can all agree that it’s damn near impossible to follow in Paul Rudd’s footsteps in any capacity, but I’ll do my best.” Over the last 20 years, male celebrities and musicians have been selected for the title. Some years, they hit the mark with their choices, while other years, it may seem they chose who just so happened to be the most popular.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and People magazine has their own taste. See the Sexiest Men Alive from the last 20 years below:
