In 2022, Evans distanced himself from his wholesome superhero image by taking on the role of an obnoxious playboy in Rian Johnson’s murder mystery Knives Out. He also acted in the Apple TV+ miniseries Defending Jacob and voiced Buzz Lightyear in Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story spinoff, Lightyear (2022). He continues to star as Captain America for the MCU. Evans is an advocate for equality and supports numerous charities.

Acting Career

Bitten by the acting bug as a child, Chris Evans started out with school plays and theater camp, then moved to local community theater. He secured an internship for a casting office and befriended agents, and after graduating from high school, he decided to focus on film and television.

He appeared in a few TV pilots and a listless teen comedy, She’s All That (1999), before scoring a lead role in the B movie Cellular (2004), about students who plan to steal answers from an SAT exam.

In 2011, he starred as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and his earnestness and eye-popping physique have made him one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. He’s also shown off his acting chops in movies such as Kenneth Lonergan’s Lobby Hero (2019), Rian Johnson’s Knives Out (2019) and the animated Free Guy (2022).

Philanthropic Efforts

Evans has taken a keen interest in supporting important causes. He has been active in environmental activism, and he is committed to helping others remove the stigma around mental health challenges.

He also has an incredible ability to connect with audiences and take a personal approach when working on projects.

He also made sure to share the GoFundMe on his social media channels with millions of followers.

He has held fundraisers for Christopher’s Haven, a charity that helps families of children undergoing cancer treatments in Boston. The actor has also been a spokesman for several brands including Audi, Gucci, Samsung, and Hyundai. Evans is also a celebrity ambassador for Save the Children. He recently brought one lucky fan who donated to the organization to the Avengers: Endgame premiere in Hollywood.
