Chris Evans's publicist, I don't know how you can sleep at night:
I have no problem taking my shirt off for a role if the part calls for it, but my publicist says, 'When you’re promoting yourself, being you, there’s a way to keep it as classy as possible. Greasing yourself up and stripping down may not be the best way to do it.' To some degree, she may have a point. But at the end of the day, it didn’t bother me then and it doesn’t bother me now. Maybe I dropped to #8 [on the After Elton Hot 100] because I haven’t had enough shirtless photo shoots lately. I’m blaming my publicist.And so are we, Chris! So are we.
More Evansy goodness can be found in the full interview he did for The Advocate, like the part in Milk he lost out on, his gay brother (who apparently looks just like him but taller), his man-crush on Brad Pitt, his girl-crush on Mannequin-era Kim Cattrall, his fag-hag mother, and how he totally thinks he makes a hot transvestite.
Guess his publicist was grabbing some lunch during this interview. More's the benefit for us, I guess!
