Chris Evans Covers 'ESQUIRE': Leaving Captain America Behind & Why He Was Warned Against Talking About Politics
That title SHOULD read:
"Chris Evans & his buff arms cover 'ESQUIRE'".
But you get the point.
If you follow 'Avengers' star Chris Evans on social media, then you'll already know he is very outspoken when it comes to the current state of politics in a Donald Trump world.
Never one to shy away from standing up for what he believes in, Evans has gotten into many Twitter fights with many on the right, including former KKK leader David Duke.
But, Evans revealed that he was warned about discussing politics:
“Look, I’m in a business where you’ve got to sell tickets,”
“But, my God, I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror if I felt strongly about something and didn’t speak up. I think it’s about how you speak up. We’re allowed to disagree. If I state my case and people don’t want to go see my movies as a result, I’m okay with that.”
“It’s time for calm. Because not everyone who voted for Trump is going to be some horrible bigot. There are a lot of people in that middle; those are the people you can’t lose your credibility with. If you’re trying to change minds, by spewing too much rhetoric you can easily become white noise.”
But, the interview isn't entirely about politics.
Is Chris getting ready to leave his portrayal of Captain America behind?
He also revealed that, following the upcoming 'Infinity War' installments, his contract is up, and it may be time to say goodbye to Steve Rogers.
Would you guys be sad if another actor stepped in to play Captain America?
