Surveys are divided on whether the Boston accent is the most annoying accent in America or one of the sexiest accents in the country. But when Chris Evans briefly slipped into a Boston accent during a red carpet interview, the Internet landed firmly in the latter camp.

During an interview with “Access Hollywood” about his voice work in the upcoming “Toy Story” spin-off “Lightyear,” the Boston-born and Sudbury-raised actor started bantering with the correspondent about his facial hair.

“What do you prefer, mustache or no mustache?” Evans asked the interviewer. “Be honest!”

That six-second clip, in which Evans oh-so-briefly slides into a Boston accent, was enough to set the Internet aflame.


“This is the first time I have been actively attracted to Chris Evans, rather than merely acknowledging his good looks,” wrote one Twitter user. “Is it the Boston? It’s totally the Boston, isn’t it?”

“Chris Evans proving once and for all what I’ve said my whole life: Boston accents are both absolute garbage and hot as hell,” wrote another.

As the clip was posted and re-posted by stan accounts across Twitter, the love-fest for Evans’ Boston accent grew (and continues to grow) by the second: “Don’t mind me, I’ll just listen to this on repeat“; “Hearing his Boston accent just makes me want him even more“; “I will need him to never stop talking to me“.
