Chris Evans: It’s a ‘bummer’ when ladies text me back right after we meet


I don’t remember covering these photos of Chris Evans from the Oscars, so here you go. Better late than never. Chris attended this year’s Oscars as a presenter, and he brought his sister Carly and his brother Scott as his dates. He even brought them to the Vanity Fair Oscar party (and Scott is HOT!). Chris is Boston born and bred and he’s always been pretty clear about what he’s looking for in a woman/girlfriend/wife: he wants a Boston girl. A Boston girl with some junk in the trunk. Back in 2012, he told Playboy that he likes “strange things” and “I like a good ass… I can say that? I like a big ass.” So, his obsession with ladies having some junk in the trunk has been documented over the years. Chris went on Anna Faris’ podcast this week and she got him to talk more about how he’s an ass man, whether he’s ever sent a dick pic and whether he likes it when girls text him right away.

Chris Evans is a man that knows exactly what he likes. The actor stopped by Anna Faris’ podcast titled Anna Faris Is Unqualified, alongside comedienne Jenny Slate, when things took risqué turn and got candid very quickly. Anna asked Chris whether he’s more interested in T or A, and if he’s into being sent nude photos from ladies he’s romantically involved with.

“I’m way more of an ass man, clearly,” he said while laughing on the program. “I like butts. I guess [I like] butt pics.”

He also joked that while some may regret sending naked photos (security reasons aside), “nobody sends a bad dick pic…There’s always like a full photo shoot, like a four-hour photo shoot with filters,” he added without confirming (or denying, really) that he was speaking from experience.

Anna chimed in by noting that she and hubby Chris Pratt used to send lovey dovey shots to one another, but “we try to be careful now about what we send each other.”

Then, Anna quizzed Chris on his pickup game—take note, everyone.

“Let’s say you meet a super hot girl at a bar. You feel like a nice connection with her and she’s really hot,” Anna began. “Would you give her your own number or your assistant’s [number]?”

“I would probably ask for hers,” he answers. Nicely done, Chris. But he adds that too much communicating right out of the gate can be a bad thing. “Let’s say we met at 10, and I left the bar at 11 and I sent her a text at 11:30 saying, ‘Hey, it was great to meet you.’ And she responds, ‘Yeah, you too.’ And at 3 a.m. there’s another text [from her], right away it’s a little bit of a bummer.”

[From E! News]

So if you are a lady with some junk in the trunk and a Boston accent, and Chris Evans gets your digits, don’t text him back right away. Even if he’s sending you airbrushed dick pics and texting you just minutes after you’ve met. Do not text him right away. He likes “the hunt.” He likes mystery. He likes to be kept waiting. Just FYI. Also: what would you do if Captain America sent you a dick pic? While he’s not my favorite person or anything, I think even I would be into it. Truly.

    if he is so fond of mystery,why would he send a pic of Captain Jr. at all? meh.

    • robynsing says:

      I thought he is gay(?)

      • Colette says:

        His brother Scott is gay

      • MC2 says:

        Thank you Colette!
        I was having a real moral dilemma because I think being into siblings is gross in general. I’ve always loved “Captain, Oh My Captain” so seeing how hot his brother was really throwing me for a loop! I can’t go after both?! What do I do?!
        Luckily you set me straight (no pun intended) and I’ll stick with the one I have a chance with.
        Note to self in recording device hidden in bra- “phase one- get butt pads, two- take classes on a Boston accent”……

    • Priya says:

      He looks really old in bad lighting

  2. ladysussex says:

    I think the point is that she texted again. She replied to his text, but then a few hours later sent another one on her own that wasn’t a reply to one of his texts.. That’s thirsty.

    • Lex says:

      It’s thirsty for a girl to reach out to a guy on her own? Good grief.

      • KB says:

        At 3 am a few hours after they met? I’d say that’s thirsty for anyone. But yeah, he’s a douche.

      • V4Real says:

        @3am in the morning it is.

        But how is he a douche? (I have come to hate that word btw. A man came up with that slang using the word of a device that is meant to clean out a woman’s vagina. Calling a man a douche is like saying that he is something that goes into a woman to clean her nasty insides out).

      • QQ says:

        wait so… Chicks gotta act aloof like Rooney Mara in the 2016 even if the guy sent them a message?? Or is it a Don’t speak Unless spoken to Proposition?? or just bs “the Rules” games?? Yikes…

        also a Firm No To Any or the Chrisses or their junks they all look like overgroomed ken dolls with plain crotches

      • V4Real says:

        But QQ He just sent her a nice to meet you text which she responded to. Then a few hours later in the early morning she texts him again. It sounds desperate to do that to someone you just met. And what he is saying is that he hates those texts because it just seems like a booty call text. Let’s not forget he’s an actor in a popular franchise and for all he knows that girl just wants a piece of that Cap ass ASAP.

        Would people be giving this topic such a hard time if it was a female celebrity who says she hates when a guy she meets text her too soon, especially at 3am in the morning. Most of the commenters would probably be saying oh that man just wanted a booty call from her or that’s so creepy.

      • AnotherDirtyMartini says:

        @v4real – instead of douche, douchebag use enema hose. It’s perfect.

      • V4Real says:


        I actually like that one. You’re such an enema. :)

        I usually just call a guy a dick because I’m referring to something that is related to a man. Or just calling him an ass works just as well. But I must apologize to all the donkeys out there for comparing a man to them.

      • Priya says:

        Douching is unnecessary and harmful to vaginal flora so he’s a douche because he’s unnecessary. Don’t let him in your vageen.

        And I mean commercial douches, not the medicinal ones for some women.

    • Zaytabogota says:

      That’s it, desperation is the biggest turnoff to anybody. It’s signals emotional instability and neediness. Not attractive.

      • Nameless says:

        While I understand that a second text can be off putting, and sure a return text like that breaks the “rules” in the dating environment. But I used to work with a vulnerable, lonely patient population and it breaks my heart to read words like clingy, thirsty, and needy to describe people who text or want to spend time with other people. Emotional literacy is not something everyone learns early on and sure no one wants their toes stepped on. But one of the bigget risk factors for poor health outcomes is loneliness. It’s a life situation we all deal with sometimes, not a character flaw.

        Even very interesting people who potentially make good friends can be too enthusiastic about texting and reaching out, but, most can learn how much contact is appreciated if you give them boundaries.

        I probably sound pretty weird about this stuff but I guess my previous work has changed by thinking.

      • Priya says:

        I think it’s a great move on her part. She realizes he’s not really worth the trouble or getting her hopes up. He’s just a dbag.

    • LookyLoo says:

      That’s what I got, too. I can’t stand needy/clingy people, especially the too much too soon type. I can relate.

      • Emily says:

        I agree. Nothing kills my interest in a man faster than over eagerness. Call me, make a date and then GO AWAY for a while. I don’t need him to text me EVERY day. We haven’t even been on one date yet.

      • mee says:

        yes. second text at 3 AM completely unnecessary and desperate

    • atrain says:

      Yeah, I agree. A 3am text right after you meet someone “nice” means they’re not as nice as you originally thought. If a guy texted me at 3am after meeting at a bar a few hours earlier I would know he’s just looking for a late night hookup. No thank you.

    • Sabrine says:

      Yep, reeks of desperation right off the top. I would be totally turned off if I was a guy.

    • Kosmos says:

      He says that now, but what if by chance no one found him interesting? I’ll bet he would just be WISHING a hot woman would text him, again and again—he’s just full of himself now that he thinks he’s on top, but sometimes the tables turn, right ?

  3. Nancy says:

    What is he a Kardashian? If you don’t want early texting, don’t give out your stupid number so quickly douche. I don’t like him.

    • Mel M says:

      I don’t either. I don’t think he is attractive at all and interviews like this make him even more unattractive. Basically he likes to play games.

    • Original Kay says:

      That’s right.
      Meet at 10:39, text at 11:00 and she is desperate?
      Whatever Cap.

      • vauvert says:

        He did not use the word desperate. He was sincere and said that for him a second text at 3:00 am is a bit of a turn off. Why is that a problem?

        I am so glad that I didn’t have to deal with texting or any of the idiotic dating apps back in the day (having been married almost 15 years, I have long been out of the game.)

        Ano yeah, I would have never got back in touch for a second time with a guy I just met. Some men – and women – are like that. Does that mean there is something wrong with me too? I would have waited for him to call back. If he never did, I wouldn’t have made a move. I am very comfortable being old fashioned. Some guys may like it, some not, and the ones expecting me to reach out first would be wrong for me. The end.

      • Colette says:

        The 3 am text is thirsty.

  4. Bam says:

    His terrible makeup is distracting.

  5. perplexed says:


    There’s no mystique with this one.

  6. Lora says:

    Childish game, nobody has time for that

    • OrigialTessa says:

      Seriously. Is he serious? If you like her. If you have a connection, you’re going to dismiss her based on a text? How old are you?

    • SloaneY says:

      No doubt.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Word. THAT is a bummer? Dude, priorities.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Amen. We’re not 14 and this isn’t a CW show, if you like a person and they text back then you know they’re not down for the childish ‘hunt’. No, he wants to be in limbo for 3 days with no reply wondering if she even saw his message 😒

    • Tessa says:

      Totally and completely childish. Couldn’t agree more. All this game playing is what’s ruined romance in this age.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      So agree. He wants you to play like you’re not interested, because your being interested in him is a bummer. Ok. Bye.

    • Naddie says:

      Thaaanks. This game is so high school.

  7. Linn says:

    It’s such a bummer when you see a really good looking guy and then he open’s his mouth and he sounds like a complete idiot.

  8. Lizzie McGuire says:

    Hold up! Anna Faris has a podcast? I’ll need to go look that up & need to finish reading about Chris Evans’ obsession with butts.

    Edit: I just finished reading that, blah blah blah don’t care you’re pretty & I’ll be picking you up & then take you to Casa de McGuire. Do the dirty, kick you out & never text you Captain America. I’ll also yell “Team Iron Man” as you leave. Also your brother is hotter, can I have his number?

    • GiGi says:

      See my review of the podcast below…

      • Amanda says:

        I agree. I listened to the episode with the girl from Juno (whose name is escaping me) and Anna would not stop talking! You are interviewing someone else! Listen! And I’m glad you mentioned her voice — she sounds like a toddler half the time and a privileged valley girl the other half. It really kind of killed Pratt for me knowing he married her.

        I also listened to the Chris Evans podcast and I think he’s been misquoted. He said that if a girl that seemed cool texted him a dirty pic it would be a “bummer”

    • Dani says:

      Almost positive his brother is openly gay :(

  9. missmerry says:

    I think he’s very handsome but totally seems like he would be a d*ck to date, and be a total d*ck once you broke up…

    • V4Real says:

      and send you d*ck pics to remind you that you wouldn’t be getting anymore d*ck from him. :)

  10. Margo S. says:

    He would be pissed if a girl texted him after meeting? What a prick. This guy is almost 35 and still single and I’m not surprised. Sounds like an arrogant sob.

    • V4Real says:

      Well it does sounds a bit thirsty if someone you just met text you at 3am in the morning after she had already sent a response to your nice to meet you text around 11:30pm.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I so agree. You’ve met and exchanged numbers. He contacted you to say basically that he’s interested. You’ve acknowledged mutual interest. Let it rest a bit, until at least the next day, instead of texting in the middle of the night. And when you do text, have a definite point like: “I enjoyed our conversation last night, want to meet Thursday over drinks to continue it?”

        And this works both ways. Don’t be in such s rush

      • Lurker says:

        Definitely. A 3am text out of the blue is a booty text, regardless of what spin you put on it.

        I got the feeling that’s what he’d be bummed out by – that a girl he was into would text at 3, looking for sex. Not that a girl texted him back too quickly.

        But hey, most people here made up their minds already.

      • Kitten says:

        I’d go out with you, Lilacflowers lol.

        Seriously, I’m with you guys.

        I’m relatively indifferent to Evans (he has a great ass I must admit) but I actually agree with him here.

        But clingy/over-eager guys are not my thing. Total turn-off for me.

      • WTF says:


        You know, I didn’t think of that way. If I thought someone was cool and then they sent me a booty-text I would be disappointed too. I think from the way he said it and the headline, I was thinking that he just wants someone that wants to be chased, which I do think is stupid and childish.

      • Izzy says:

        Lilacflowers, you are my new dating coach. : D

    • Kimberly says:

      I agree. V4REAL/Lilacflowers/Lurker – After the reply at 11:30 PM all texting that night should have ceased. 3 AM texts from someone you just LITERALLY met is a thirsty/booty text. I took a non-scientific work poll and not one person (male/female) sitting here thinks it’s not a thirsty/booty text. I don’t have any feelings about dude one way or the other, but it seems to me a lot of the ladies in this post is not feeling Mr. Evans. Shrugs.

  11. GiGi says:

    I’ve really and truly tried with the Anna Faris podcast… but I just can’t. For one, she ALWAYS talks in that affected, whispery baby voice… except when she doesn’t so you can tell it’s put on. And basically all they talk about is sex – it ends up every episode sounding like a group of middle schoolers after reproductive health. And Anna talks a lot about “playing the game” to get men to like you which I also find gross. They do a call in portion of the show and they’re always saying, “play hard to get! men love that!” I really wanted to like it because I think she’s funny. But it’s awful. It’s just a bunch of celebrities in a circle jerk that is rarely funny.

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      Oh noo! I was expecting so much of her! Don’t get me wrong talking about sex, that’s fine whatever. I just thought it she would talk about different topics with a little snark & funny tone to it. I just saw Anna Faris, podcast & Jenny Slate, I thought that can’t go wrong it’s probably super funny. Damnn you know what is good & doesn’t disappoint, Elizabeth Banks comedy site WhoHaha. I was browsing around it yesterday & it’s pretty good.

    • als says:

      Yeah, I love ‘Mom’ so I tried a few episodes of
      her podcast but it’s nothing new or funny about it. And I can’t stand the baby voice either.

      • HalfieProud says:

        Its not her that I mind so much on the podcast. Its her sycophantic co-host that I can’t stand. Laughs way too hard at everything and relentlessly licks the ass of every guest. Ugh, he grates!

  12. Tifygodess24 says:

    I’m going to need him to fix that baseball hat (fake) tan line he has going on in that first pic, he needs to keep in mind fake tanner does and will rub off.

  13. FingerBinger says:

    He’s a dude bro from the word go.

  14. Celeste says:

    He is more like an ass-hole than an ass-man if you ask me… Douche alert!

  15. als says:

    I heard him on Unqualified and he was actually trying to sound like if he meets a girl he really likes and a potential long-term relationship he would be disappointed to get a booty text later in the night. Basically he was saying ‘don’t use me for sex”. As if!
    However, if he told me the sky is blue I wouldn’t believe him. He was very criptic in the conversation and only participated more when they talked about other people. I think the dick pic was a joke.

    • Renee says:

      That’s how I took it. If he actually likes a woman and she’s texting him in the middle of the night right after meeting she’s either desperate or looking for sex, which is a turnoff.

    • Lurker says:

      Yeah, that’s what I thought too. It’s not that a girl texts back too quickly at all, which I think is what a lot of people are taking away from it.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Now see this is different. I understand if it’s about not wanting it to become a booty-call, because the whole two texts in one night thing it sounded like was ridiculous.

  16. Jess says:

    I agree with him, even if it is a little crappy. I’ve had guys come on too strong within a day or two and it was a turn off for me, maybe not for everyone though. I think part of it is how easy it is to text people versus having to call, and I hated when guys would immediately start asking for pictures. I actually stopped dating for years because one too many men sent dick pics without being asked and I was so disgusted by that! Dating is weird these days, thankfully I found an awesome guy😄

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Am I the only one who totally doesn’t get the appeal of dick pics? Granted, I’m 38 and married and I can’t remember ever receiving one anyway.

      • SloaneY says:

        No, not the only one.

      • Jess says:

        No I’m with you! I don’t understand why so many men instantly go for it either, maybe I’m just old school but I think you should actually meet in person and date awhile before you start sending pics of your hard on in the middle of the day, and the captions that go with them, gross. Then after they send you one(that you didn’t even ask for)they start saying its your turn now, “show me yours I showed you mine” kind of thing, ummm no.

      • Lurker says:

        Ugh i hate them too. Like wtf am I supposed to do with this photo? I’m in a supermarket.

        And even if I’m at home alone, I’ve never seen a dick pic and went, oh my god, I must have it, ravish me. I’m like, *looks at phone, sees pic* “Oh lookit that”

        Followed by a deep sigh, putting the phone down, and wondering how to get out of this conversation as fast as humanly possible.

        Also, guys who send unsolicited dick pics, DO NOT PICK UP HINTS. And if you blatantly tell them to fuck off, you’re a bitch or a lesbian.

        Being single is hard, for reals.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        “Ugh i hate them too. Like wtf am I supposed to do with this photo? I’m in a supermarket.”


      • prettylights says:

        Not at all, I don’t get it either. A guy I wasn’t even dating sent me one. I had met him on a trip to California. He was a friend of the friend I went with and we’d text sometimes after I was back home, just casual stuff. One night we were texting and then BAM – dick pick. I had a boyfriend at the time so I deleted it immediately. He did apologize for it later and said he was drinking pretty heavy at the time and was embarrassed but still I don’t get it! We were 6 states away, there was no way we were going to have sex, and we weren’t even sexting or anything when it happened. I have to admit the size was pretty impressive but still – weird stuff.

      • Insomniac says:

        It’s not just you. I’m too old and married for people to send me things like that, luckily, but I can’t imagine finding it a turn-on at all.

      • Kitten says:

        Men think that d*ck pics turn women on because boob and butt pics turn them on, it’s that simple. And I’m sure some women are into d*ck pics, although I’ve yet to meet one.

        They don’t realize that most of us show them to our friends and laugh…or maybe that’s just me.

      • anon33 says:

        I would be into a dick pic if it was the right dick…ie Jon Hamm, or my husband surprising me. But random, unsolicited dick pics from a dude I just met? HELL to the MF-ING NO.

      • V4Real says:

        I had a guy send me a d*ck pic before. Sad thing was, it wasn’t even his d*ck…. wrong color. The dick was Black and he was White, You should have seen the confused look on my face.

        Just kidding guys. I have been lucky enough at never receiving a dick pic. If I’m not your GF, you don’t even get a picture of me. Now I have had men ask if they could send me one and I’m like no. Like all of a sudden I have morals. I do to some extent. I just don’t want to see a pic of your package. Leave something to the imagination.

      • teacakes says:

        I’ve been sent a d-ck pic, but didn’t come to know about it until the guy apologised for sending it lol

        and I wouldn’t have got it anyway, because my phone back then was a Nokia 3300!

    • Izzy says:

      I have yet to experience the dick pic phenomenon, but the coming on too strong thing is… just wow. I’ll meet a guy I like, we’ll talk on the phone or whatever, then he’ll start texting me ALL DAY LONG. And the thing is, I have a job. A day job. It requires me to not be texting all day. And then I get frustrated because I’m like “how does he have this kind of spare time on his hands?” And if I don’t respond right away he’s like “Are you there? Are you there? U OK?” And… oh, I just can’t anymore. I’ll just stay single now.

      • Lurker says:

        Omg, that’s so true. Another peeve of mine is when I guy sends this text:


        And that’s it! Urrrggh, makes me so cross. Am I supposed to have a conversation on my own here? Will I flirt with myself? Tell myself all about myself?

        Seriously, I’m at the stage where if a guy can chat and make me laugh, I’m his. That’s how little effort I require, just conversation. The banter, as the youth would call it.

      • Eden75 says:

        Hey. Good lord I hate that. The worst text ever. Not that I date, I’m married but even people I have just met, that irritates the crap out of me. That isn’t the start to a convo unless we are face to face. Are we supposed to just Hey back and forth all day? Argh….

      • V4Real says:

        Yes, I hate that. My boyfriend still text me with a hey.

        My answer back is simply um with a question mark or a hey what?

      • Izzy says:

        Another good reply for Hey is “for horses.”

        OMG, I am doomed to be single forever, amiright?

      • CL says:

        The “U OK?” makes me ragey. It’s as if they think the only reason that you’re not responding is because you’re dying in a ditch or have been kidnapped. Heaven forbid that you are actually busy with your life.

    • key says:

      I agree. And if you think of all the hard work-pun intended- they put on until they find the right picture, the right filter, right angle to not make it look small, it’s so ridiculous, Just picturing any guy trying again and again, makes me think he’s an idiot, We all consider the selfies obsession Kardashian style so idiotic but this dick pic trend is 1000 times worse. Ugh…For me is a deal breaker.

  17. Zip says:

    That’s why I hate dating. I have no time for those stupid games.

  18. Gg says:

    Ha! Maybe he read The Rules? (which say what you will work)

  19. Boston Green Eyes says:

    Hey, I live in Boston, got junk in the trunk and live in Somerville where Chris’ uncle – and my Congressman – reside.

    But I wouldn’t give Chris my number if he were the last guy on Earth.

    • Izzy says:

      I would tell you to give him my number, but I get along with most of the ladies on this board, so I have a feeling he wouldn’t be able to handle me either. Captain America might be able to handle me, but Chris… nah. :D

    • Cee says:

      Could you explain to me what a Boston Girl is?
      I’ve been told repeatedly (when in the US) that I look like a Boston girl and I’ve never understood what they mean (and if it’s a compliment or an insult lol)

      • Kitten says:

        It’s a compliment! lol
        That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I wasn’t aware we had a particular “look”. Do you wear Red Sox gear a lot?

      • V4Real says:

        @Kitten LOL……..

      • Boston Green Eyes says:

        I’ve never heard of that before. Yeah, what Kitten said, that’s the ticket.

      • Cee says:

        @Lilacflowers – I would never wear anything remotely similar to the Red Sox :P

        I honestly don’t know but I’ve been told this many times, both in the West Coast and in NY/NJ. It can’t be my accent (unless they really do think I have a Boston accent).

      • Bob says:

        Cee, “Boston girl” generally means bossy and loud. That sounds like an insult, but pretty much the only people I hear use it are guys who say it as a compliment. It means they want a woman who doesn’t take shit and is just as likely to yell at the sporting event on tv as they are.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      Ahh BGE, I used to live next to the Somerville Hospital on Crocker. Davis Square was my hang (Sligo & Diesel specifically). I loved my time there. You’re a lucky girl.

    • Kitten says:

      Hey, neighbor!
      Union square is my steez.

      • Boston Green Eyes says:

        Hey Neighbor! I love Bloc 11. There’s a cute guy who works there. He looks like a Caucasian Keanu Reeves (at least, that’s what I told him!).

  20. claire says:

    What’s everyone in an uproar about? You gonna tell me if someone you just met comes on too strong right away, which is what they’re insinuating about the text behavior, that you’re not gonna use that as a red flag yourself? Get real. There’s nothing wrong with what he said.

  21. Lama Bean says:

    His brother, though! LAWD.

    • H says:

      I’ve met Scott multiple times. He’s hot and gay, but loves to drink and do other illegal substances. It got him fired off of one job that I know of. This was a few years ago, so hopefully he’s gotten cleaned up, as he’s very nice when he’s not messed up.

      • Izzy says:

        He was actually arrested once for illegal substance – possession, I think. A few years back? So his problems are not unknown, but hopefully in the past.

  22. Marty says:

    The best thing to come out of that podcast was my new found love for Jenny Slate.

  23. Kilgore Trout says:

    I have never found him attractive or understood the fuss over him. I also am a grown woman and wouldn’t pay attention to a grown man that likes to play games like “wait 3 days to text me and make sure you don’t sound too interest because I like to chase” or whatever bullshit he’s into.

    Here is the thing about texting: it’s become the most convenient way of communicating because you aren’t required to respond right away if you don’t want to. You can have a conversation while doing whatever else you have to do. The time frame he gave also seems a little ridiculous to me. It’s not like he’s talking about giving his number to someone and they start blowing his phone up 5 minutes later. I had a guy text me literally about 10 minutes after I gave him my number and he wouldn’t stop so I had to tell him that very same night that it wasn’t going to work because of how instantly clingy he became. That’s different.

    Ironically, he’s trying to sound manly but he sounds high maintenance AF and I think a lot of women find that kind of crap off-putting. Women with lives don’t have time or the energy to waste on guys like that. In my personal opinion, texting can be a good way to get to know someone a bit more in between dates. As long as they don’t get obsessive and flip out if you don’t respond or something crazy, I see it as harmless.

    Just my opinion.

    Chris Evans’ ideal dating scenario: A big butt woman who comes when he calls, texts dirty pics when requested, but no more!

  25. lowercaselois says:

    Too many rules and expectations from him. Honestly, when you meet the right person, it some how, just works. You overlook some of the dating rules that you have established. If he really wants to find a Boston girl, he probably should move back there.

    • Kitten says:

      From what the papers say, he does spend a LOT of time here in Boston, when he’s not filming.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I’ve seen him a few times over the past few years. He has a place in the Downtown/Ladder District/Chinatown area – formerly The Combat Zone

  26. Izzy says:

    He sounds very high maintenance. Having said that, he’s still hot AF to me. And I kind of see his point about not texting AGAIN at 3 a.m., I’d be like “can’t this wait?”

  27. Annabelle says:

    I’m so glad i’m out of the dating game. If someone sent me a d*ck pic, i don’t care who it was, they’d be done. Is this a common occurrence?!

    • unmade_bed says:

      I have only received one d*ck pick in my life, and it was unsolicited and somewhat traumatizing. It was from a stranger–a self-professed Marine–who somehow got my number. I might not mind a photo of an attractive man with a hint of that area included, but the area itself is not something I find myself wanting to stare at.

  28. A.Key says:

    Ew on the dick pic, and what a prick for saying that a woman showing genuine interest is a “bummer”.
    You just know that if he weren’t famous he’d be that frat bro douche whom no woman would like ever upon meeting him.

    • teacakes says:

      genuine interest is one thing, an unsolicited text at 3 a.m. is a whole other thing i.e. a booty call.

      which, from someone you’ve literally just met and said ‘it was nice to meet you’ to via text, is rather thirsty.

  29. Fragile says:

    In the 1st pic he looks like the albino Chipmunk i never got te have;)

  30. Jayna says:

    Regarding the texting again I think for these celebs everything begins to be so easy. They are famous and don’t even have to work for getting a date with a girl.

    George Clooney said the one thing he missed about not being really famous was that dance you do when you meet someone , the eye contact, the going over and meeting, and not knowing how it will turn out, and working for that date. He said when he got really famous that all changed. It wasn’t that he was any different back in the beginning, but he was now famous and had to do zero to get a date or even try.

    I can kind of get that for men. I think Leo doesn’t care. LOL But on the whole, men do like a little chase, feel like they have to pursue the woman or at least some women. When that all goes away, after the initial ego boost of women on a platter for you, it must become a bore.

  31. HoustonGrl says:

    Someone who is super texty/needy right off the bat is definitely a red flag. However, Chris Evans seems like just the type of guy you might connect with at a bar and then never hear from again, so….

  32. Miss M says:

    A reply at 3 pm? Desperate much?! I’ll pass…
    And a dude who likes the chase? I’ll pass…
    I partially agree with him, but he sounds like the last guy I met who enjoys more the chase than the person he is trying to get to know… Yawn!

  33. Singtress says:

    So, he wants someone who knows they are supposed to plays games?
    (Texting at 3:00am is extreme, but he has to know if he exchanged numbers with a woman she is gonna be excited about it. And maybe too drunk to think “maybe I shouldn’t text right now….”

  34. moon says:

    To be fair if a guy did that to me I would hate it too.

  35. Miran says:

    Yet another case of the non famous sibling being a million times hotter than the celebrity.

  36. Beans says:

    ACTUALLY, what he said was that if he connected with someone, and could see they might have a potential to be something more along the lines of a relationship, and they sent texts after meeting like in a timely manner, that was cool. But if they sent him a thirsty text at 3AM, that was booty call, and if he really liked the girl, then he would know that it wasn’t about the connection for her, it was about banging. So he would be disappointed that he misjudged that it could be something more. However, he also said that it depended on what the text said, like if she sent something kind of funny or non-sexual, then he didn’t mind it, and that was cool.

    It’s not often that I defend him, because he is a messy bro who can say some things I truly don’t agree with, but the write up made it sound worse than what was actually said, and everyone is just hating on him without knowing what he actually said.

    • Rae says:


      Glad you posted that, because you’re right in that the write up comes off as different to the message he tried to send.

      He his messy, but I think people might be trying a bit too hard here to make him sound like a douche bro.

  37. key says:

    Him, Cavill, Pine all are the same vanilla bland wannabe leading men who got lucky just because of their looks. One by one, staring with Pine are crumbling as soon as their inexistent acting skills are tested. Pine has it hard after all the bombs at the box office, the latest being that awful Finest Hours movie that my bf wanted to watch and I literally felt asleep in the meddle of, and zero charm as a leading man, let’s not talk about the mediocrity of his acting. Please Hollywood stop it.
    PS I don’t put in this category Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt because IMO they both have a little bit of charm, even if they are equally mediocre actors.

    • Rae says:

      He seems to be doing pretty well with the Star Trek movies.

      He lives a lot quieter life than the other Chris’ mentioned, but I don’t think he’s truly struggling.

  38. Colette says:

    I agree with him.Anyone who text me after midnight is getting blocked unless it’s an emergency.

  39. Madpoe says:

    At my age, I can’t keep vampire hours any longer. @ 3 am and if I’m up its gotta be insomnia or jitters for the fact I’ve gotta be meeting at effin’ 7 in the morning.

  40. Rae says:

    His ever declining hairline is depressing me.

  41. Mango says:

    I think he has a sense about humour about himself and comes across well in interviews generally, but this is a bunch of fairly douchey and TMI quotes. Aside, dick pics are probably safer than face-and-dick pics, right? Because it’s all going to end up on the internet at some stage and the former means no one can id it’s you unless you have a distinct tat down under or something.

  42. Snoopy says:

    Maybe she was drunk when she met him and thought she was texting someone else at 3AM

  43. Pmnichols says:

    He’s that dude that blows off a girl bc they have nothing else to offer the chick. Grow up dude you ain’t all that.

  44. Liz says:

    He sounds boooring, lacking in creativity and in one word: “stodgy.” Why limit yourself to a Boston girl?

  45. ellie says:

    I listened to the podcast, both Part 1 and 2 and I was expecting worse. In fact, it wasn’t that bad. I actually enjoyed it. I liked the friendship between Jenny Slate and Evans and how she kept slapping him around and I loved their juvenile banter. It reminded me of the unfiltered conversations I have with my male friends. While I am not a fan of Evans, I feel like people are being very judgmental, without even listening to the full podcast. Evans was asked about his preferences and at first he was hesitant to answer as he quote “didn’t want to record his thoughts forever” but Anna kept pushing him, asked his opinions about body hair, grooming, dating etc and he replied that if there is a girl he likes and if he thinks that there was a potential for it to be more than a hookup, then he would be disappointed if she sent a desperate text at 3 in the morning, as it implies that she only wants to hook up with him..which is fine but it would be a “bummer” for him. Yes, he is a dude-bro from Boston who likes sports and girls and bars and his family. Is it so bad? I am not an American so I don’t know about what makes a douche-bag a douche-bag but I felt like the podcast was very laid back and chill and it was like a conversation between friends. This just seems like a click-bait article. I actually liked the advice he gave to the different callers and I also liked what he said about how young girls nowadays are under extreme pressure to look perfect because of social media and how their self-esteem is tied to how many likes and comments they receive on Instagram. It is really easy to get offended on social media nowadays as everyone has an opinion and is sensitive to topics related to women but I feel like people are being harsh on Evans. Yeah, he is a 30 something, white man who is protected by his privilege and he probably take things for granted but I feel like he is at least better than the mansplainer Jeremy Renner or that blabbermouth Henry Cavill.

  46. teacakes says:

    Seriously why is it so bad that the guy is basically saying he doesn’t want to be the booty call of someone he thinks he might actually like?

    I’d be annoyed if a guy I’d just met and was potentially into, sent me a 3 am text literally the same day too.

    • Mango says:

      It’s like that awful book The Rules, but from the guy’s angle. He’s basically saying he doesn’t like women who are too into it at the start.

  47. Patty says:

    Eh. Different strokes for different folks. Some guys want someone who will make them put in a little effort; some guys want someone who will move in and take care of them after a few dates. LOL.

    Personally, I think all of the “dating” rules or whatever are ridiculous. I would not recommend an unsolicited text at 3AM but I don’t subscribe to the whole idea of actively playing hard to get. If I get a text and I see it, I’ll respond. If I’m at work I’ll respond later. If I don’t see it for a day, I’ll respond in a day.

  48. My friends all know I would rather text than talk on the phone. I’m ok with someone texting: “hey”. I simply text back & say: “yo” I’m also ok with people texting at 3am..because, I turn off my phone when I go to bed, whether its 10pm or 2am. I think Chris Ego is high maintenance

  49. Memo to all ladies: Don’t give your number to Chris Evans.
