Being a very famous Boston-bred actor comes with the perks of getting to chum around with the other very famous Boston-bred people. Just ask Chris Evans, a famous person.
Evans told Jimmy Kimmel on Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he’s foregoing his usual invites to his family for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War premiere and instead inviting Pats players/party rock extraordinaires Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, and Rob Gronkowski.
But one Patriots player Evans has never before officially encountered? Tom Brady.
“I know a lot of guys from Boston,” Kimmel said to Evans. “I will say I have never seen with any athlete like the pure — almost sexual — worship of Tom Brady.”
“It’s a lot,” Evans said. “It’s a lot. It’s a real thing.”
But even Kimmel was shocked to hear Evans has never met Brady.
“I want it to happen organically,” Evans explained. “I don’t want anyone to force me into it. I just, you know — you do you. Keep winning Super Bowls. If we meet, we meet.”
“What would be an ideal scenario for you meeting Tom Brady?” Kimmel asked.
“Maybe a nice walk on the beach,” he said.
Wait — same, though.
