On the Objectification of Chris Evans

Chris_Evans

Now that he's Captain America, Chris Evans has apparently thrown out his silly ban on gratuitous shirtlessness,as evidenced by his lawyer wardrobe in Puncture.

Yet he still thinks he needs a butt double. Says Evans of his role in What's Your Number with Anna Faris:

"My butt double is my roommate in Boston! He's a kid I grew up with. Anna said she got a butt double for the bay scene. My buddy Zach was like, 'Who's going to be your butt double?' and I said, 'I don't know. Do you want the gig?' I brought him down, he met the director, did a little spin around and boom -- he's in the movie! He's got a great ass."

That is all.

YOUR FEATURE PRESENTATION
Exhausted by superpowered heroics yet? The summer has already brought us norse gods (Thor review), dangerous mutants (X-Men review), and intergalactic policemen (Green Lantern review) and we still haven't reached the finish line. Here comes Captain America: The First Avenger, the last superhero to storm the box office beach. Summer's end goal: total world domination by the spandex nation.

Cappy might be arriving a month too late for his own good, if he was hoping to be greeted by cheers and patriotic parades. The new would be blockbuster would've made a great fit for Fourth of July opening -- damn those giant robots! Given that the studios like to frontload the summer they didn't do this on purpose but I'm pleased to report that they saved the best hero for last. No, really. Cappy is just swell.

And not just because of that spectacular literal swelling that you've already seen in the TV spots when Chris Evans emerges newly muscled from that sci-fi silly metal cocoon.

Captain-taller

"How do you feel?"
"Taller."

Fact: that's not even the peak of the scene. But we're racing ahead and there's more

 road Peer pressure can lead to false memories. From 'Science' magazine: "We examined how socially induced memory errors are generated in the brain by studying the memory of individuals exposed to recollections of others. Participants exhibited a strong tendency to conform to erroneous recollections of the group, producing both long-lasting and temporary errors, even when their initial memory was strong and accurate."
