Chris Evans (born June 13, 1981) is an American actor best known for his role as Steve Rogers (Captain America) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His younger brother, actor Scott Evans, is openly gay (in fact, Chris accidentally outed Scott in an interview with The Advocate in 2009[1] in response to a question about rumors that Scott was gay) and he is vocally supportive of LGBT rights. For example, in the same interview with The Advocate, he stated:

As for gay marriage, it's mindboggling and appalling that human beings are being denied civil rights in this country. But time will heal all. I have to believe that in 10 years we won't be having this conversation.[2]

In a 2012 interview with Playboy, he expressed similar sentiments:

PLAYBOY: Your brother is gay. Do you support gay marriage?

EVANS: Are you kidding me? It's insane that civil rights are being denied people in this day and age. It's embarrassing, and it's heartbreaking. It goes without saying that I'm completely in support of gay marriage. In 10 years we'll be ashamed that this was an issue.[3]
