Top 10 Moments That Made Us Love Chris Evans

Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Moments That Made Us Love Chris Evans.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the funniest, most loveable, and unforgettable times this actor became captain of our hearts. However, we’re not including any film roles because they deservingly have a list of their own.

What’s your favorite Chris Evans moment outside of his movie roles? Let us know in the comments.

#10: Offering Betty White His Arm
“41st People's Choice Awards” (2015)

Channeling his inner hero, Evans proved that he understood the assignment: to protect this international treasure at all costs. So, as Betty White headed to the stage to accept her Favorite TV Icon Award, she did so on Captain America’s arm. It’s so adorable; you can see Evans jump up and offer his assistance instantly. Let’s be honest: whether you’re 23, 43, or almost 93, would you pass up the opportunity to accept this great honor? And no, we’re not talking about the TV Icon Award. His chivalry didn’t go unnoticed, and fans gushed with admiration across social media. And we’re pretty sure Betty was also happy to have such a handsome escort by her side.

#9: Getting Interviewed by Kids
“Newsround” (1972-)

On the “Lightyear” promotion tour, Chris Evans and Taika Waititi stopped by for an interview with some of Britain’s cutest and most hard-hitting interviewers. He’s so sweet with the kids, giving detailed and well-thought-out answers while never speaking down to them or phoning it in. Clearly, he loves children and is just a big kid himself. This is most evident during the game segment, in which he engages wholeheartedly. You can tell how much he’s enjoying himself, making it all the more entertaining to watch. We don’t know who had more fun, the kids talking to the voice of Buzz Lightyear or the man who voices him.

#8: Nailing the Photobomb with Chris Pratt & Jimmy Fallon
“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (2014-)

Imagine having your photo taken on the Super Bowl Red Carpet. You then look back at the pictures and realize there are a few too many people in the shot. Upon closer inspection, you notice that's Captain America, Star-Lord, and Jimmy Fallon? The trio nails their poses from their triple piggyback, getting lei'd and sharing a hoagie. Evans pulls some particularly entertaining faces, and he's totally game for all of Jimmy and Pratt's wild and wacky ideas. Of course, the total showstopper is when he confidently declares he can leap over Chris Pratt, who's roughly 6' 2. Evans goes for it, and amazingly it works perfectly. He even lands neatly. Plus, what a shot!

#7: Having Blooper Fun
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014)

Okay, so these moments came to be because of a film role, but it’s more about Evans than the role itself. As the first Avenger, Captain America can often be quite serious and straight-talking. However, the moment he breaks character, Chris Evans reverts into a loveable goofball. This is no more evident than in the gag reel for 2014’s “The Winter Soldier.” Evans clearly understands his character’s values and strengths as a leader, as he enthusiastically declares that he’s in charge. Then, later on, when his indestructible shield fails to break a lock, Evans’ surprising reaction is bound to elicit some giggles. We love this glimpse behind the cameras as it reveals more about the actors and their dynamics off-screen. It’s obvious they’re all genuinely good friends even when the cameras stop rolling, and it’s a delight to see.

#6: Proving That Being Paired with Chris Hemsworth Is the Best & Worst Thing

Chrises Evans and Hemsworth unleashed utter bedlam when they were paired up during press tours. We love their friendly rivalry, whether it's
over the popularity of their characters or who's the superior, Chris. Their "Age of Ultron" interview with "AMC" was particularly wild, with the duo barely able to contain their laughter, especially when Hemsworth started making high-pitched sounds. We also get an insight into their friendship when Hemsworth identifies Evan's bicep in a second. Many of their joint interviews tend to descend into incomprehensible chatter and fits of laughter, which might explain why we don't see them paired together too often. Still, their chemistry is off-the-walls, and we want more of this endearing chaos on our screens.

#5: The Chest Grab... You Know the One

Some eagle-eyed fans noticed that whenever Chris finds something particularly funny, he has a habit of holding onto his left pec. He’s also been known to reach out to others if they happen to be close enough. The actor has been made well aware of this quirk, and his co-stars have also been asked about it. Sebastian Stan even pulled out a hilariously spot-on impression of his colleague. Anyway, some fans found it so charming that they created “Chris Evans Left Boob Grab” compilations. It’s actually rather adorable as it proves that the actor wears his heart on his sleeve. If you’ve never spotted it before, you’ll definitely notice it now every time.

#4: Anytime He Shares Photos of His Rescue Dog, Dodger

While filming the 2017 drama “Gifted,” Evans adopted his adorable boxer mix mutt, Dodger. They were shooting in an animal shelter when he first spotted the dog and decided to take him home. The actor is an advocate for adoption and divulged that choosing an adult canine was the best decision, as older mutts are often overlooked. He shared footage of the first time he and Dodger met, and it’s almost too much for our pup-loving hearts to bear. In fact, Evans told “The Tonight Show” that he essentially joined Instagram just to share pooch pictures with the world. And we’re so glad that he did. The pair continuously delight us with countless heart-melting social media posts.

#3: Whenever He Shows How Much Love He Has for Disney

We all love Disney. We love the movies, the music, and the parks. However, how many of us can rival Chris Evan’s adoration for everything House of Mouse? He knows all the seven dwarves, every lyric to “The Little Mermaid,” and struggled to choose his favorite movie. Also he’s a total Belle, well, at least that’s what he says. You can always see him light up whenever the subject of Disney arises. So we can’t begin to imagine how exciting it must be to be part of that world as Captain America and Buzz Lightyear. Also, a trip to Disney World (or Disneyland) with the Evans family sounds like a day out we want to join.

#2: “Know Your Bro with Chris and Scott Evans”
“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (2014-)

No one’s more likely to reveal your darkest or most embarrassing stories than your siblings. So maybe don’t appear alongside them on a late-night talk show, or else the next family gathering might be awkward. In this game, the brothers took turns putting on noise-canceling headphones while the other answered revealing questions. And boy, not only was the tea spilled, but it was also splattered everywhere, burning both brothers in the process. It’s incredibly entertaining - well, at least, it is if you’re not one of the Evans brothers having repressed memories or long-forgotten secrets shared so publically. Well, that’s siblings for you; they’ll help you ditch school and rat you out to your mom on national television.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

#1: The Puppy Interview

Get ready for your heart to burst because there’s nothing more adorable or wholesome than Chris Evans surrounded by puppies. The fans wanted it, and even Evans was game. But the reality was so much more joyous than anything we could have imagined. It’s easy to forget this is actually meant to be an interview when there’s this much cuteness on our screens. And the way he talks about the older dogs is almost too sweet to handle. Like many viewers, we could easily watch the actor play with pups all day. We’re almost surprised that he didn’t follow through on his comment about taking them all home. It’s one of the most heartwarming and blissful things you’ll ever see.
