And it is that beyond what is done in the Marvel Cinematic Universe , Evans is talent and pure charisma, that is why today, on his 40th birthday ( incredible that he looks so good at that age ), we compiled some data that perhaps you did not know about his life to surrender to the most popular “Chris” in Hollywood :

  • Christopher Robert Evans was born on June 13, 1981 in the city of Boston, in the state of Massachusetts, and is the son of Robert Evans III, a dentist, and Lisa Capuano, a theater director.
  • He is of British and German descent through his father, as well as Italian and Irish through his mother. His paternal grandfather was of English, Scottish, and Welsh descent, and his paternal grandmother was of German descent. His maternal grandfather was the son of Italian parents, while his maternal grandmother was from an Irish family.
  • Chris began his acting career the traditional way: performing in school productions and in community theater.
  • In high school, the actor appeared in an educational short film (Biodiversity: Wild About Life!), As well as a commercial for Hasbro.
  • His mother, a former professional dancer, passed on to him a little fondness for dancing, giving him tap classes as a form of self-therapy for his anxiety.
  • Initially he wanted to dedicate himself to being an animator at Disney or an artist dedicated to drawing or painting, but he decided on acting to follow in his mother’s footsteps and because of his fanaticism for the film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975), the classic of Jack Nicholson .
  • After high school, she moved to an apartment in New York to study acting at the Lee Strasberg Institute of Theater and Film.
  • In 2000, while taking classes in New York, Evans attracted the attention of some Fox executives, who hired him to star in the series Opposite Sex , which had only eight episodes.
  • His film debut came shortly after when he starred in the film The Newcomers (2000). Just a year later he returned with the film Not Another Teen Movie (2001).
  • Chris appeared in the video clip for Marilyn Manson’s “Tainted Love,” a song that was part of the Not Another Teen Movie soundtrack.

  • Evans did not need to audition to play Captain America, it was the producers who sought him out to interpret the role that, initially, he rejected three times. His great concern was what would make his private life take on such an important role. Today, he says that choosing to play Captain America was one of the best decisions he made.
  • To date Chris Evans has appeared as Steve Rogers / Captain America in eleven films.
  • Contrary to rumors, there was no CGI to improve Chris Evans’ muscles in Captain America: Civil War. Remember that scene where Cap tries to prevent a helicopter from taking off using his own strength? Surely yes, and it is that Evans spent a lot of time exercising for that moment on the screen, which was well received by all the fans, and even by Tom Hiddleston (the much loved Loki ), who admitted that it is one of his favorite Marvel moments .
  • But Hiddleston was not the only member of the cast who was struck with the muscles of Captain America , because in the first film, when Steve Rogers emerged from the machine in all his physical splendor, Hayley Atwell was overwhelmed . According to the actress, her surprise was genuine and she nearly broke her temper when she looked at Evans shirtless for the first time.

  • Mental health is an important issue for him and one of his hobbies is reading self-help books. Chris has stated that he wants to provide himself with a calm and positive state of mind.
  • He is a supporter of equal marriage and LGBT rights, which could be partly because his younger brother Scott Evans is an openly gay man.
  • Although he is a fan of the New England Patriots, the actor had no qualms about cutting ties with American football player Tom Brady for showing his public support for former President Donald Trump .
