Happy 36th birthday, Christopher Robert Evans! (June 13, 1981)
Brains are just noisy. We analyze the past, we worry about the future. Our consciousness is very spread out, and as a result, it’s hard to stay present. And if you can kind of stay present and know that that’s all that you have in life — life is just a series of nows — if you can kind of surrender to that, you can never lose.
If Steve Rogers knew the meaning of the phrase “social media”, you can imagine that his account would read something like Evans’. There have been tweets about his opposition to Donald Trump. A running battle with David Duke, the controversial former Imperial Wizard of the KKK in the United States. And when a young white supremacist named Nathan Damigo was recently caught on camera punching a woman, Evans simply tweeted, ‘I hope I run into Nathan.’ For years, we all assumed that Robert Downey Jr. was the Avengers star closest to his super-powered alter ego. Looks like it was Evans all along.
