During the early 2000s in an article in the UK's Gay Times, Evans stated that people would approach him in gay pubs to tell him that they could not believe that he's gay. In a subsequent 2002 interview with The Advocate in the U.S. he said that although his (then) part (in Taboo) was that of a straight man "everybody knew me as a gay man, and in my life in London I never tried to hide it".

By his late thirties, he was less willing to discuss his sexuality with the press, asserting his private life to be private. He deliberately shields his family from the press. He stated in response to a question about the opinion that Hollywood might have of his sexuality that his private life was not connected to Hollywood, and that "Talent, success, what you do in your personal life – I don't see how one should have an effect on the other." Although known as openly gay since the Gay Times interview, he is rarely labelled so. Evans was in a relationship with Colombian actor Victor Turpin in 2018, as well as with Argentine art director Rafael Olarra from 2019 to 2020. During a 2021 interview, he said he was interested in having children and becoming a father

It's a strange position to be in, because I shouldn't have to say anything, but I often do feel like I have to get it into the conversation. It's a shame, but that's how it is."
