Who can forget Chris Evans’s muscles in Captain America? We all fell for it, and he’s been our collective fantasy paramour ever since! But it’s a little known fact that Chris Evans actually has a brother Scott who is openly gay! Chris even went to gay clubs for his brother’s birthday parties, and openly supports his openly gay brother.
When Chris was asked what inspired him to do a bit of activism on the side, he stated: “I’ve never felt any sort of backlash or friction as a result of the stance I’ve taken in my career in support of [my brother] or any other human rights… hopefully it stays that way going forward.”
“It’s important to understand, whether it’s growing up with women, whether it’s growing up with other ethnic groups, it’s important to experience anything different from what you know to encourage and cultivate compassion and understanding.”
“Growing up with women helped me, but growing up in the theatre helped me, growing up in a progressive community helped me. I think it’s really important to put faces to the situations that we’re navigating as society.”
