  1. He is so pleasing on the eye and seems liek a really nice guy too! Go Chris!

    On a serious note, his comments are fantastic and well timed.

  2. Chris has the be the most perfect man in the world! Handsome, amazing body & a great personality!

  3. God Bless this man, wish more straights would come out of the equal and civil rights closet to help all LGBT people get their equal rights to marry and be free to be who they are born to be, gay. At a time when governments are taking rights away from minorities it is only a matter of time it will be a matter of time before they come to take the rights away from all people. Then who will come to help you then? If we all stand up for the rights of minorities now then when it comes time that they try to take your rights away, the minority will be there to help you. Everybody who wants to be free needs to stand up to oppression by evil people today before it is too late for us all.

      Many straight American celebrities have spoken up in support and many have taken part in videos calling for marriage equality. Here in the UK, not even one straight actor has done or said anything supporting it. It’s what has helped get equal marriage legalised in six states already. How much clearer does it get, StonewallUK? One video alone won’t do it. There have to be many more flooding the airwaves right up to the day a vote is taken. We’re far too apathetic in the UK, not aggressive enough and don”t have any good experience using video formats to promote social issues as they do in America and Australia. Maybe the people at C4EM and StonewallUK should have sought assistance from the people who know how to do it right and win the argument. I emailed C4EM several of the best marriage equality videos and have not heard back from them. The video they’re releasing next week needs to be followed up by more of them. One alone won’t do it.

      1. Daniel Radcliffe? Emma Thompson?

          Rehan, both would be ideal. Colin Firth, Kenneth Branagh, Jude Law would be most welcome too!

    What a nice man. You can tell he doesn’t come from Taunton.

  5. erm…. sorry what’d he say? I was too busy staring at his chest!
    Well I’m happy he supports us, and for what it’s worth we’ll support him any time.
    His gay brother, not an identical twin by any chance?

  6. Isn’t this so true and what it is all about?
    I salute him, what a great looking and sincere man.

  7. Such a great guy. Cute too lol

    He is wrong though. Forget 10 years, we are ashamed now that cuvil rights is still an issue.

  8. Why can’t he be president of the USA??? He could give his acceptance speech shirtless!

    PS: People have often told me I look just like Chris Evans. I was always flattered till I realised they were talking about the DJ!

    1. Well, Obama also has a nice chest, as seen in photos of him taking vacation in Hawaii. But of course he could never give speeches shirtless, no one would pay attention to whatever he spoke.

    Seems like a nice guy.
    I still think his breakfast show was rubbish.

  10. Chris Evans is only slightly less attractive than his openly gay actor brother Scott. And his mother, Lisa, is a hoot. When AfterElton had a debate about the relative hotness and talent of both, Mrs Scott regularly contributed – she is a great lady.
    The Evans family seem to be a tremendously well-adjusted, intelligent and civilised group of people who don’t take themselves too seriously, but are prepared to fight for their principles.
    I’m not a massive fan of Chris Evans, but the sheer common sense and pleasantness of him and his family really cheer me up in a frequently ugly world. All of them deserve every bit of success they have.

  11. Who cares what this guy thinks?
    it is hardly authoritative.

    And the fact that he is doing an interview for a pornographic magazine shows he is hardly a great moral guardian.

    1. I expect his many hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of his fans worldwide do care what he thinks.

  12. Playboy is pornographic? Since when? There’s more salaciousness in the Bible than Playboy… So following your twisted logic, then the Bible is hardly a moral compass?

  13. Thank you Chris, may your good character rub off on others.

  14. Who is Chris Evans?

    1. Captain America. And Johnny Storm from fantastic 4.

  15. Gay activist Paul Mitchell 22 Apr 2012, 5:28am

    He is smart and cute!

  16. All i have to say is, thank you Chris Evans.

    oh and btw he’s HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT! ;)

  17. Love Chris Evans! Way to go. <3

  18. Brilliant way to describe the situation too – drawing attention to how the future will view our present age. I guess it will be in a similar way to how the modern UK views its role in the slave trade. A very uncomfortable truth.

    Top marks Chris! :-)
    (even though i was bored shirtless throughout Captain America… apart from the bit where he steps out the growth machine-thingy ;-) Oh, and I *really* want to know: did *everything* grow in there??)

  19. I am happy to accept that we are all god’s children. I am also willing to accept that not everyone believes in god. However, the notion that homosexuals and their culture should be allowed to usurp the rightful meaning and ethos upon which a christian society is built is anathema to me. Just because a thousand people say 2+2=6 does not mean it is true. However if there are sufficient people of a like mind hovering about seeking to change the common view then soon there is a metaphoric tidal wave ready to jump on that band wagon. Personally i prefer to sustain the view that 2+2=4. Children deserve the man right’ to be born from and brought up by a mother who is a woman and a father who is a man. This ideal appears to be missing in the minds of those selfish people who only wish to give credence to their decadent and abominable conduct. Children tend to follow in the footsteps of their parents. No matter when we exist we live in modern times. What moral compass is being set ?

    1. and what about the children living in care and need to be adopted, I have a feeling that many of them do not care about the sex lives of their prospective parents they just want to be loved and supported by somebody who wants them.

  20. Children are born into the world and find it as we have made it. It is difficult to accept that we can say we have made it better for them by being so called ‘gay’. I do not subsribe to the view that there is any such gene. I would rather thing that this culture springs from some hybrid compulsion developed within the confines of the ennvironments in which we are brought up ant reared. Chris Evans is a very clever cookie. He seeks fame and the enhancement of a fledgeling movie career. Soon he will be able to command a huge salary for his services. Politicians seek votes. Anyone who believe the things they say should be around after all have gone home. It is the small talk they have with their partners that tell the true story. Not what they say or do in public. Where is the human right of children to have a woman and man as parents? No wonder the muslims believe their draconian and stoneage phylosophies are better than ours. And who can blame them in the light of our moral decline?
