Happy birthday to one of our favorite Avengers, Chris Evans! Captain America himself turns 34 today, June 13. The ever handsome star has had such an epic year — let’s help him celebrate by taking a look back!
Chris Evans had a positively prolific year when it came to bolstering his career and proving himself as an actor — and a director! Being 33 definitely looked good on Chris, and 34 will surely be better. The First Avenger’s personal life wasn’t too boring either.
After starring in the highly successful Captain America: The Winter Soldier, you would think Chris would take a break or something. But he took the plunge into directing instead, helming his first film with Before We Go. The film was Chris’ pet project, proving that he could have a career in directing outside of acting. We can’t wait to see it!
And everyone and their mother know that Chris reprised his Steve Rogers/Captain America character for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The smash hit teamed Chris with his usual band of amazing costars, and prepared him for next year’s third Captain America film, Civil War. More Steve Rogers? Yes, please.
Chris’ Marvel Cinematic Universe pals are a tight-knit bunch, and it got him involved in what has to be the nicest bet ever. During the Super Bowl, Chris and Guardian of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt bet on their favorite teams, and whoever lost had to show up to a children’s hospital in the opposing team in full Marvel costume. Cute and considerate. Chris Evans won the bet, but both men wound up fulfilling the bet and melting hearts worldwide.
And what’s a year without a new lady by your side? Chris reportedly started dating the adorable Lily Collins, 26, after meeting at the Vanity Fair Oscars party back in February 2015. We think they’re perfect together, don’t you?
HollywoodLifers, help us wish Chris a very happy birthday in the comments! Here’s to an even greater year ahead!
