Everybody loves Tom Brady, even Captain America.
Last night, Chris Evans went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new movie, “Captain America: Civil War,” and, being from Boston and all, the conversation obviously quickly turned to the Patriots. While Chris is friends with some of the players, he said he has yet to meet Tom Brady. But he does not want anyone to push an introduction because, as he puts it, he wants it to be organic.
“I don’t want anyone to force me into it. Just you know you do you. Just keep winning Super Bowls, and if we meet, we meet,” Chris said. When Jimmy pushed to find out what his ideal opportunity to meet TB12 might be, Chris practically blushed as he talked about taking a walk on the beach … and quickly stopped himself by jokingly saying “I just don’t want him to think I’m not cool”.
While he has yet to meet Tom, Chris is actually friendly with a number of Patriots players. He even invited a few to attend the “Captain America” premiere tonight in Hollywood. That’s right, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola “might show up”. Robert Kraft cannot make it. And Rob Gronkowski actually never even responded to his invite.
“I actually didn’t hear back. You know what, Gronk, I’m putting that on you … I can’t believe I just started a beef with Gronk … I’m so sorry,” Chris said, laughing. It was a fun interview with a very strong Boston slant. Gotta love our Boston Boys!
