Did you know: Chris Evans gets panic attacks. Yes, he does. This is one reason why he’s very private and didn’t really do any meet-and-greets on the Avengers’ sets.
It amazes and inspired me that a man who does what he does can do it, even with an anxiety disorder. You go, Chris.
This is why I get so upset when I hear negative comments about Chris and how he doesn’t seem as out-going as the rest of the Avengers cast. I remember hearing people complain about how he’s ‘rude’ and the like and it’s sad, because I highly doubt he intends to come off that way, he’s just more reserved than the others.
I remember hearing once that he actually went to seek psychiatric help before accepting the role of Captain America because of how anxious he felt regarding it. As well as the fact that he already played another Marvel superhero and he was concerned how comic fans would react to his playing another hero in that universe.
Just because someone’s in the entertainment industry doesn’t mean they’re going to be incredibly outgoing off camera just as much as they appear to be on camera. Some people just really enjoy acting; they’re not the characters they portray nor are they like their costars nor are they going to be incredibly outgoing because of their choice of career.
Now I’m really starting to root for this guy. Because, well. I kind of get the point more accurately than I wish I did.
I am legitimately crying. I look up to him so goddamned much. He’s my hero. I’ve always said that I love Iron Man because he has an anxiety disorder, but Captain America, my baby, has anxiety. I don’t have words to describe how I feel, other than saying that I don’t feel so lonely anymore.
In case anyone wonders why I love him so. It’s not (just) a physical appearance thing or even an acting thing. It’s THIS, right here.
Chris Evans is a goddamn inspiration and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise. Every time he opens up about his anxiety and I see that he’s dealing with it and fucking succeeding, I feel a little better and I think that if he can be okay, well then, maybe I can too.
I cried the first time I saw this interview. I cry EVERY TIME I see this interview. The “shhhhh” part…I get it. HE gets it.
