Pay attention.

CHRIS EVANS HAS got to be one of the best Chrisses Hollywood has to offer.

Ahead of the release of the new Avengers movie, Chris has obviously been doing some press. Everyone is talking about his recent interview with the New York Times, because of what he had to say about the #MeToo movement.

The #MeToo and Time’s Up movements began last last year and saw a massive amount of women in the Hollywood movie industry to speak out on their experiences of sexual abuse and assault.

In the Times’ interview, we hear that Chris has been trying to make sense of it all, with the interviewer explaining that he was reading The Mother of all Questions to study how to ‘better conduct himself as an ally to women’.

Chris is soon heading to Broadway to star in Lobby Hero, a play in which he’s a cop. The play reportedly explores abuses of power and sexual coercion between Chris and his female partner.

In preparation for the role, Chris says he’s reading up on feminism and contemplating gender equality.

What became of all of this? Well, Chris has learned to “listen more and speak less”, when it comes to being an ally.

He explained:

The hardest thing to reconcile is that just because you have good intentions, doesn’t mean it’s your time to have a voice.

And the crowd went wild

Bless you, Chris. Now, we need to ask you a few questions about that facial hair.
