Chris Evans' Shade-Throwing Friend Is the Real Hero of "Captain America"

A behind-the-scenes clip shows Evans' friend Jon keeping him grounded.

Have you ever wondered how Chris Evans stays so grounded?

He's handsome, charming, and has spent recent years as one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood for portraying a superhero — and actually having the physique to pull it off. And even after his character got his perfect ending in Avengers: Endgame, he's so popular that Marvel is reportedly trying to bring him back for at least one more movie — and possibly up to four.

How Chris Pratt's Politics Affect Your Life

Whether liberal or conservative, Chris Pratt's politics are apparently the most important thing in the world...

Update 2/4/2021: This week Twitter got after Chris Pratt again, unearthing some lame but fairly innocuous "jokes" Pratt tweeted in 2012, and combining them with some fake screenshots of tweets in which he appears to defend the use of a racial slur and says "muslims scare me so much."

Among the evidence that the offensive tweets were less than legitimate is the fact that one of them shared the exact time, date, like and retweet count as one of the bad jokes it was shared alongside of.

Chris Evans' Panic Attack Story Highlights the Importance of Mental Health Awareness

The appearance of self-assurance can sometimes conceal inner turmoil.

"Defending Jacob"

In the first Captain America movie they had to shrink Chris Evans down with special effects to sell his underdog origin story.

In his natural state there is nothing about him that suggests an underdog. His effortless, slightly goofy smile, along with his sculpted physique and striking jawline, seem to tell the story of a life without struggle. He is the physical embodiment of carefree self-assurance and the kind of charm that we imagine carrying men like him to inevitable success and fame. And yet, Chris Evans almost didn't take the role of Captain America because he was so overwhelmed with anxiety about where it might lead.

12 Surprising Celebrity Siblings

Not all celebrity siblings are as obvious as the Hemsworths

Celebrity siblings are the best.

When they aren't goofing around and having the same kind of fun we have with our siblings (while generally being much more attractive) they are occasionally getting into slap fights and reminding us to be glad we don't have a family reality show.

Some famous siblings like Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth, Jake Gyllenhaal and Maggie Gyllenhaal, the Olsen twins and the Kardashians basically come as a set. Others like Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen are less obvious. Today is the day we look deeper to celebrate all the celebrity siblings we've overlooked.
