A new cover story from The Hollywood Reporter with Chris Evans has hit the internet, and just as you’d expect, the Captain America actor doesn’t hold back. As many of you have already seen before, Evans doesn’t hold back on Twitter in regard to his disdain for current President of the United States, Donald Trump. In the new interview, he’s asked about it – and doesn’t hold back here either.
In the new THR article, Evans talks about potentially alienating half his audience:
“You don’t want to alienate half your audience. But I’d be disappointed in myself if I didn’t speak up. Especially for fear of some monetary repercussion or career damage — that just feels really gross to me.”
When asked about being a fan of Tom Brady, and more specifically, Brady’s support of Trump, Evans says:
“I really hope he’s not a Trump supporter. I’m just hoping he’s one of those guys that maybe supported him and now regrets it. Maybe he thought it was going to be different — and even that bothers me — but maybe there’s a chance now he just thinks Trump’s an absolute dumb shit, which he is. If he doesn’t, if he’s still on that Trump train, I might have to cut ties. It’s really tough.”
Another interesting point to note is that he says Marvel hasn’t said anything about his outspokenness on Twitter.
“Marvel has never said anything. On the contrary — when I bump into Kevin Feige the first thing out of his mouth is ‘Man, I love what you’re doing [on Twitter].'”
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige says:
“I don’t see it as trash-talking. I see it as very astute, very honorable, very noble, very Cap-like. Commentary and questioning. I’ve said to him, ‘You’re merging! You and the character are merging!'”
It’s a pretty interesting piece from THR, and any fans of Marvel or Chris Evans will definitely want to give it a read.
