It’s not the first thing a lot of men would leap to ask Robert Downey Jr at first sight-at least not openly- but Chris Evans is a bit of a rule breaker apparently. I'm referring to Chris Evans the superhero actor who actually does the Blue Steel look rather than Chris Evans the autumnal-haired radio DJ and presenter who was (bizarrly) married to Bille Piper for a few years. Just so we're clear.According to Downey Jr, the first time he met the rent-a-superhero actor (seriously, he’s all about being a comic book muscleman come to life, this guy) Chris Evans asked him to join him and his lady pal in a hot tub. He invited along Downey Jr’s wife, who was present at the time, of course. He’s not a weirdo.
In a chat with Variety, Downey recalled “'I have a vague memory of seeing him and whatever hot girl he was dating across from a dinner with me and Susan. I think he and his girlfriend invited Susan and I back to their house to get in the Jacuzzi, to tell you the truth.” I’m not even attempting sarcasm when I say, those lucky women.
As horrible as it is to proceed with the next sentence, here it goes…It did not happen. Asked if he joined Evans in the hot tub (el fuego, I’d say), he replied “No, we did not, and by the way, like I said, that's a vague memory, but that's what I'd like for you to print”. So unfair. For some reason that scenario transfigures every sane woman into an adolescent boy thinking of two girls kissing, strike that, any male who isn’t trying to hold back their adolescent tendencies.
