When I first heard about Lightyear, I didn’t want any part of it. Now that my TL is awash in photos of Chris Evans, I fully endorse this movie, whatever it’s about. I’m sure I’ll come around on the film that I didn’t think needed to be made. But seriously, any time I get to watch birthday boy (June 13) Chris do anything, I’m a happy witch. And I don’t care what size he is, unlike some fair-weather fans. When Chris was talking to Kevin Polowy of Yahoo, he said that people note his weight loss since he’s walked away from his Captain America role. Copping to being about 15 pounds lighter, Chris said people ask him if he’s “OK” because he’s “lost a bit of weight.”
In a new interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Chris was asked about saying goodbye to the role and he said it’s been “a literal weight off. I’ve shed, like, 15 pounds,” he said. “Every time people see me, they say, ‘You OK? You lost a bit of weight.’ Yeah, I haven’t had to hit the gym as hard.”
I put the segment below. Chris sounds like he’s being irreverent so let’s hope that’s true. I hope folks have learned that discussing weight is not helpful. In this case, Chris sounds like he’s projecting what people are thinking. I can tell him what I’m thinking, he looks fine with a capital F. Whatever time he is or is not spending in the gym, he wears it well.
You know what else he wears well? A white tee and jeans, which is what Chris wore to Disney California Adventure Park after the Lightyear premiere. Chris got to pose with all his pals, including the characters of Toy Story, Inside Out and Mickey and Minnie. Only people accused Chris of photoshopping himself into the pics because he’s doing the exact same pose in each. Chris said he swears they’re legit photos, he “just has a very disciplined pose.” I call bs. I think he’s in the photos, but he’s such a Disney fan, he’s probably star-struck and worried about saying something dumb in front of his heroes. I wonder if he went to the new Avengers Campus while he was at the park?
Oh – and we know the puppy interview has been filmed. It’s only a matter of days before we get it folks!
