After the actor accidentally posted the nude photo on his Instagram stories, fans immediately flooded hashtags and searches for his name with unrelated photos in a bid to stop screenshots of the leak from spreading. His co-star Mark Ruffalo also weighed in on the mistake with a “silver lining.”
.@ChrisEvans Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself. See… silver lining.

Now, Evans has created his own silver lining, tweeting out a reminder to vote in a tweet that started with the understatement of “now that I have your attention.”
Now that I have your attention

While Chris Evans has officially retired from playing Captain America, he’s now looking for ways to help America in real life, which has meant getting more involved in politics. Lately he has helped boost campaigns such as Power The Polls, which aims to sign up new poll workers, and Democrat campaign $45 to fire 45, which is… exactly how it sounds.
Evans also recently launched A Starting Point, a bipartisan political site designed to educate Americans on the issues they may not fully understand. He’s previously spoken about how his long-running role as Captain America has influenced his activism. “There’s no denying that I played a certain character,” Evans explained in an interview with People. “And it just so happens to align with part of my nature in terms of being someone who is politically involved and who cares about the wellbeing of people in this country.”
