One More Reason to Lust After Chris Evans

cevans1.jpg

Actor and former Morning Goods hottie Chris Evans has an openly gay brother — who he openly talks about! Only problem? The Fantastic Four actor won’t go to gay bars with him.

He tells The Advocate: “I’m down with the gays. Mostly I’m hanging out with him and his gay buddies, who are fucking hilarious. They’re the funniest people I know. […] They’ve invited me out to gay bars before, and I said, “Look, guys, I’ve got to draw the line there.” That’s where a photo will get taken, it will run in magazines, and before you know it, I’ll be living down the gay rumor for the rest of my life.”

And a brilliant question to ask any straight-y: “Growing up, when was the first time you realized that you weren’t gay?,” Evans responds: “When I had a crush on my babysitter, who lived with us for a few years. I must’ve been 10 or 11. I was just head-over-heels in love with her. I thought she was the greatest thing in the world. Then I had a really big crush on Kim Cattrall in Mannequin. I was in love with her too. “

      One more reason to dislike this guy, whoever he is:

      “Do they take you to gay bars?
      They’ve invited me out to gay bars before, and I said, “Look, guys, I’ve got to draw the line there.” That’s where a photo will get taken, it will run in magazines, and before you know it, I’ll be living down the gay rumor for the rest of my life.”

      He has a gay brother and is afraid people might think he is gay?
      WHATEVER.
      Next!

      I’m Gay and would not be caught dead in a straight bar. He’s probably wise to stay away as we hate the breeders invading our Sacred Spaces! Gay men who drag straight men or straight women to gay bars do a disservice and generally have repressed anger towards other Gays. They have 97% of the world, leave my 3% Gay.

      I’m actually friends with one of the aforementioned “gay friends” of his brother, and have heard he’s a pretty decent guy. He’s kind of a shitty actor, though… “Fantastic Four” was a really bad movie.

      Chris Evans really is a great guy. He bumped into me (well, kinda stumbled drunk onto me) on the street in Boston, and was really apologetic, and then friendly and personable when he could tell i was completely dumbstruck by his presence. He’s also just as attractive in person.

      He’s hot. Glad to hear he’s a nice guy. Crappy actor, but then that could have been Fantastic Four (which was really a big crappy movie. As in HUGELY crappy movie). But, he’s hot. Oh, I already said that.

      I think it makes sense he does not go to gay bar. He’s right about the publicity. Also, I got to admit if I saw him there I would try to pick him up just in case he felt like exploring.

      I have to agree with him, if he went to a gay bar the bitches would be texting eachother from LA to New York with “Chris Evans is GAY GAY GAY, he’s at The Rage RIGHT NOW” and then every gay blogger would be asking him to come out and who freaking needs the extra headache.
      Plus once the gay guys start gossiping the teen girls are next and they are his bread and butter, can’t mess with the people who still PAY to see you while your body is still in good condition.
      In closing I would like to say that I would kill to have a body like that.

      If having a crush on a girl/woman makes you hetero at the age of 10 or 11, where did I go ‘wrong’. I’m not suggesting Chris Evans is gay, but a fellow can go through all sorts of relationship experiences – gay or straight before determining his sexual preferences. Personally, I held a torch for a girl in my sixth form (so I was 16-18 years old over that period) and dated the most developed girl in the year below me before I did a few sums and realised I preferred guys. To say you know who you are ’cause you had a crush on a girl at 10 is laughable and, ok – a little suspect. :)

      @seitan-on-a-stick: Ew. What a hate-filled sentiment. I, for one, happen to think it’s GREAT that urban nightlife is becoming more integrated. It’s not just that straight people are now gladly patronizing traditionally gay venues; it’s also that gay and bisexual people are starting to venture outside their protected enclaves and enjoying “regular” venues. (I decline to say “straight” because most night spots conceptualize themselves as “straight.” They just think of themselves as a jazz club, or a dive bar, or whatever.)

      His brother is Scott Evans and he has a recurring role on ABC’s ONE LIFE TO LIVE. He plays a cute, but awkward, cop named “Fish”. He is a goodlooking guy, but Chris got more of the looks in the family.

      Pragmatist…………….EW! We’ve moved beyond the Corny Collins show here. Gay men should be allowed to have their Sacred Spaces, as should lesbians. When you go home with someone from a bar (who the barman does not know) and we read about you in the Daily Blotter (obituaries for nobodies) then I can only imagine that our comments would be “Ew!” Gay-streamers or Gay Denialists to the fact that the male heterosexual world is a threat to our safety either don’t go out much or are so self-loathing like Gregoire (usually because of poverty and perhaps self-esteem issues.) Instead of enforcing your World View, ask someone wiser than yourself what environment feels safer to them? How about asking a Stonewall veteran? It’s a straight world and you’re just paying for it.

      On Chris Evans, he acted well in the movie, “Cellular.”

      I find it ridiculous that the gay bro, Scott, an actor is not interviewed for the gay mag; yet the straight brother, also an actor, is. Wouldn’t the story be as interesting coming from Scott’s perspective? I think gay media has become far too obsessed with straight, “allies” to the detriment of the LGBTQ community.

      You obviously are just running your mouth (or fingers) rampant on here and really don’t know what the hell you are talking about. Homo’s do have sacred places…THEIR HOMES! Anywhere else is perfectly acceptable for ALL people to go, especially our clubs and bars. I’ve always taken my straight friends with me, and they have a blast. What is wrong with opening up eyes to the straight world? Unless you are afraid of gaining acceptance by straight people, I don’t see the issue. That or you just don’t want to have to guess what sexuality everyone is. If this is the case, you are just plain lazy!

      Because he’s gay, dipshit. Who the fuck is Chris Evans? A het actor who made a view forgettable films. You’ll notice that many posters here are commenting not on his body of work, but rather his body. I personally would have preferred an interesting interview with an up and coming gay actor, than straight eye candy.

      @FunMe: He is a young actor who is cast as “leading man types” it sucks but if people thought he was gay a lot of those straight boys who went to see Fantastic Four 1 and 2 won’t go see 3. Things are changing thankfully but it is a reality that it could hurt someone’s career and that is a concern. The important thing is he is supportive of his brother in the gay community. There is nothing wrong with being proud to be straight.

      Um, how can we ever recruit them if we don’t drag them into our bars?

      Seriously, in San Francisco, we have “issues” of straight men going undercover at local g-bars to pick up straight chicks who seemingly feel they can let their guard down. It’s a bummer since if there’s any place a gay man’s best hag should be able to feel like she can get drunk off her ass and dirty dance with a guy without being pounced on, it should be a queer bar.

      That’s the downside to the gay revolution. With more acceptance, many – but not all – straight bars and gay bars will eventually be mixed. It’s John Water’s paradise (see his movie Pecker), and I must say, it’s not a bad thought. However, nothing beats an ALL-GAY establishment when you simply want to be with your own peoples since, for most of us, we are encased in an overly straight world…a straight world that doesn’t fully love or appreciate us as human beings.

      I love my straights, but sometimes I need to be around queens for a minute. And about a minute is enough to last me another month or two or three.

      @Paul Raposo: “Up and coming,” LOL. As an openly gay actor, he’ll probably be “up and coming” for the next few decades. He’ll never amount to more than he is now, a forgettable extra who’s Chris Evans’ gay brother, short of a role on Dante’s Cove breaking his way.

      Chris Evans may not be A-list but he’s starring in a blockbuster franchise with Fantastic Four and he’s one of those hot young actors people remember, even if it’s more so for his body and eyes. That’s why they interviewed him. Nobody gives a shit about his brother except you.

      But gay does not make hiim important for the readers.

      Oh, I agree. In fact, if he were gay, gay readers would care much, much less about him. We love our hets and do everything we can to tear down each other.

      What makes him important is that he’s an actor.

      What makes him “important”, is evident in the shirtless pic above. If he looked like Wilfred Brimley, not one queer would give a damn about him and The Advocate wouldn’t have talked to him.

      What la-la land are you in that mags are going to interview the non-famous gay brother rather than the star?

      Oh, I forgot we are dealing with gay media, where looks, style and penis size trump content, substance and interesting people.

      I was foolish for thinking a mag directed at a queer market would want to present content about our community, rather than just more of the same celeb worship–which is better presented in every other straight celeb magazine in America.

      Just because you don’t see them in some H’wood crap, doesn’t mean there aren’t many talented and powerful actors in the world.

      He’ll never amount to more than he is now, a forgettable extra who’s Chris Evans’ gay brother, short of a role on Dante’s Cove breaking his way.

      And Chris Evans will never amount to more than tits and ass. Do you really believe he is the next Sir Anthony Hopkins? If it weren’t for his body, he’d be a nobody posting anonymously on some blog, Michael W.

      The fact that Scott Evans is openly gay in a homophobic industry makes him interesting and his opinion notable. But since he isn’t straight, a queer mag won’t give him the time of day. If he were closeted, however, they’d have him on the front cover demanding that he come out. That said, Chris Evans being straight and pretty–who happens to have a gay brother–is what The Advocate seems to think makes him interesting. Fucking pathetic.

      Chris Evans may not be A-list…

      Just like every other D-lister in H’wood. But unlike every other D-lister in H’wood, he’s willing to pose half naked for drooling queers. And the fact that he treats his brother well is lauded as something brilliant and The Advocate seems to think a Sainthood should be conferred on him; rather than pointing out that he is simply doing the right thing.

      …but he’s starring in a blockbuster franchise with Fantastic Four…

      Blockbuster? Have you seen the numbers on that turd? Even die hard FF fans hate it.

      …and he’s one of those hot young actors people remember, even if it’s more so for his body and eyes.

      Remember? No one knew who that moron was before, during and after FF. And if it weren’t for Japhy posting this article from The Advocate, we wouldn’t be talking about him. Unless of course you wake up every morning, kiss your Chris Evans poster and wonder aloud how he’ll spend his day today.

      That’s why they interviewed him.

      The Advocate interviewed him because they are a mag run by vacuous, self important, self interested prima donnas who care more about looks and youth than actually reporting news that effects the LGBTQ community.

      Nobody gives a shit about his brother except you.

      Which says more about you and The Advocate, than that does about me.
