Chris Evans prefers being ghosted to dumped: ‘you can make up any story you want’

These are some pics of Chris Evans and Ana de Armas from the premiere of Ghosted. All the articles call it Ghosted but the posters write it ghosted, so I don’t what’s correct. There was a show Ghosted with Adam Scott and Craig Robertson that was kind of cute, but there were some actual ghosts. Chris’ movie, though, refers to the act of not contacting a person with whom you have a relationship again. One day you’re friends or dating/lovers and the next they’ve gone radio silent on you with no explanation. It’s a gut punch because the person who has been ghosted is left to wonder why. According to Chris, he prefers being ghosted to being dumped, because then he can make up why it happened. So instead of closure, Chris prefers a Hollywood blockbuster that he writes in his mind.

Yes, even Chris Evans, the reigning Sexiest Man Alive, has been jilted by a potential paramour, he reveals in the new issue of PEOPLE.

Asked if he’s ever been ghosted, the 41-year-old Marvel Cinematic Universe star is disarmingly honest. “I feel I’ve experienced something much worse,” he says. “I think I’d prefer being ghosted because you can make up any story you want. I’ve had the slow decline in text responses, and you just know the person is pushing you aside casually.”

So how did he cope? “You tell yourself a story, whatever you have to do to get by,” he says.

A Gemini says what now? I mean, I love this concept – the idea that I could take every person that took an Irish Goodbye out of my life, every job that passed me over and every negative vibe that came my way and create my own reason for why it happened. But as a tried-and-true Capricorn – oh hell no. If you ghost me in any way, I will track you for the rest of your days for answers. And the only thing worse than me trying to get answer from you is my second-guessing your motivation. Honestly, the rejection will sting, but at least I’ll be able to get on with my life.

But I’m not Chris, who can apparently blithely dip in and out of relationships. It doesn’t surprise me that an attractive white guy would choose to create their own narrative when one isn’t provided. I assume any reason they generate works out in their favor, too. He might want to be careful though, because it works both ways. Remember he ghosted Jana Kramer, and she created her own story about how Chris couldn’t handle a woman’s diet – and then put him on blast on a podcast. Hopefully his current girlfriend Alba Baptista will get a proper breakup if it comes to that. Of course, at the rate they scare each other, their definition of ‘ghosting’ is going to involve cardiac arrest.

    Since it’s apparently his MO, of course he’s going to say he prefers it. And really-has Chris Evans been dumped by anyone during the last 15 years?

    @Hecate, I’m with you, and think that ghosting is so incredibly cruel. I’ve seen friends of mine absolutely devastated by guys pulling this crap after months in a relationship. And imo it’s just as hurtful to be ghosted by a platonic friend. It’s just such a mean thing to do to someone, to leave them hanging like that. IMO it’s often more hurtful than anything the person could actually say to you. (Also a Gemini, btw!)

    I’m with Chris…I prefer to be ghosted than dumped–though, I’ve never ghosted anyone. At my age, I realized a long time ago that I won’t stress myself over why someone who isn’t mature enough to have a conversation with me about why they don’t want to be my friend/lover/whatever. Kick rocks loser and grow up.

  4. Mel says:

    I can see why someone prefers to be ghosted. When that happens you don’t get confronted with the crap that you did. Then you get to pretend that it wasn’t you it was them. I wouldn’t prefer it but people who don’t like to get told about themselves would.

    Dang! Evans seems serious about his racist sugar baby. Anyway I hope he changes stylist soon. I’m tired of seeing these tshirt/trouser looks that he can barely pull off.

  6. Nikki says:

    Ghosting is worse for me. I think it’s incredibly rude.

  7. Ameerah M says:

    Chris and I are both Geminis and so I understand what he means perfectly, but…my Moon is in Aries. So I would be PISSED. And would forever wish a pox on their house. JK. But not really.
    Also – Geminis never forget ANYTHING. And so while what he says is accurate. He would also forever hold a grunge against that person. As we do.

  8. Emmi says:

    What is this craziness? No, ghosting is rude and childish and yeah, I’ll know exactly why someone ghosted me. It’s because they’re an asshole. Mystery solved.

    It’s one thing if things fizzle out but as I understand it, that’s not ghosting. Be an adult, dump my ass, and let’s all move on.

    ETA: I’ve never been ghosted. But I have actually stopped replying to this dude who sort of wanted to keep in touch but never meet. Come on now, let’s not do that. So I just replied to a long-ass “how are you” with a random emoji and called it a day.

    I’m a gemini, and I do kind of get this. My moon’s in taurus, tho, so I can be a stage 5 clinger LOL. I think for me it would depend on the relationship and how serious the relationship was to me. A few dates or even a month or two – I’m not that invested and I don’t need an explanation, probably don’t even want one. A serious relationship, though, that would drive me nuts. I’d keep worrying. Either way, it’s rude to ghost. I’ve never done it, and I’ve never been ghosted, it’s just best avoided altogether lol but I do get his point.

    He’s a Discount DiCaprio. All predator with a quarter of the talent.

    • Nope says:

      Hey Mute! I see you’re spreading your filth past LSA and beyond!! He’s not a predator. G F Y 🖕

    His girlfriend was there too and it struck me that she looked like a less famous (and younger) version of Ana.

  12. ML says:

    I think Dodger is cute. Not into Dodger’s owner though. And if Dodger were to “ghost” CE (leave him), how would that make Chris feel?

  13. michyk says:

    haha, all the gf drama (from the commenters) is hilarious.

  14. jferber says:

    I think ghosting is extremely cruel and immature. I was ghosted by a neighbor I had coffee with once and I have NO idea what I did to provoke that? I get not wanting to be friends for whatever reason, but not even a simple hello in passing? People are so weird.
