I wasn’t sure if it was common knowledge here on tumblr that Chris Evans has a gay brother who is also an actor. Also, I thought we could all use another reason to love him, so here you go!
On his gay brother Scott: Yes, I do have a gay brother. I’m down with the gays. … He came out to all of us very slowly. His first year at NYU, he came out to our mother and our sister, and then he came out to me a little later. I was driving him back to New York City for school. We spent the whole day together, got to the city, had some beers in my hotel room, got into a really great talk, and he came out. I was so glad that he did. That’s got to be a difficult transition, but I come from the most liberal household you have ever heard of. And for some reason, gay men are just drawn to my mother. She’s a cool chick. I think, like, six men have come out to her. I guess they just feel so comfortable with her, and before you know it, they’re coming out of the closet. I think my mother was praying for us to be gay, so at least she got one of us.”
