Chris Evans’s Trajectory
Before being on the cover of People Magazine, credited as the sexiest man alive back in 2021, this Boston native kicked things off with his family in a traditional catholic upbringing. His mom is an art director (probably that’s where he got that interest and talent), and his dad is a dentist. His heritage is half-Irish and half-Italian. Chris has three siblings, actor Scott Evans and Shanna and Carly.
Evans started acting in musical theater as a kid, went to acting camp, and eventually took classes at the Lee Strassberg Theatre and Film Institute. Fun fact: he went to high school with HBO’s Succession’s Jeremy Strong.
After studying and getting his high school diploma, Evans took acting a bit more seriously, landing jobs here and there to work his way up and pay the bills; he starred in educational films, he was a model for Hasbro, and eventually, he packed things and left Massachusetts for sunny, liberal California, settling in Toluca Lake. From there, he started things on TV, landing a role in a TV film opposite Kate Bosworth.
Then, in 2001, he starred in “Not Another Teen Movie” in the role of a jock; while that movie failed at the box office, it eventually became a cult comedy. He went on to work in several films, including Cellular with William H. Macy, Jason Statham, and Kim Basinger.
Action Movie Star
Chris Evans eventually landed a role as Johnny Storm in the 2005 live-action movie Fantastic Four, starting a very lucrative relationship between him and Marvel.
He eventually did the sequels, went on to do voice acting for several projects, and then in 2010, Evans and Marvel tied a knot, signing a contract for several movies as Captain America. Fun fact: Chris Evans didn’t want to be Captain America, but Robert Downey Jr. convinced him. Can you imagine someone else as Captain America?
Evans has been working on several action movies since. He’s worked on Snowpiercer, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Knives Out, Lightyear, and more recently, Pain Hustlers, a mini-series for Netflix starring Andy Garcia and Emily Blunt.
Chris Evans Net Worth
With so many roles, acting in so many high-grossing movies, and with that lucrative Marvel Studios deal, just how rich is Chris Evans? Well, we can calculate that this man’s net worth is in the triple-digit millions. More exactly, Chris Evans’s net worth is about $110 million, with the bulk of his income coming from his very successful acting career in very big productions.
Another fun fact: Chris’s salary from that very first Captain America movie was a meager $300,000; by the time he did The Avengers, he was paid $15 million, and that paycheck kept bulging because, for Endgame, the dude got a twenty million check.
And Evans liked to keep collecting double-digit million checks; when he did “The Gray Man” with Ana de Armas and Ryan Gosling, streaming company Netflix paid him another $20 million, and from that movie, he started a good working relationship with Ana because they went to work again in “Knives Out.” It’s been a good run for this action and comedy actor, and we can’t wait to see him in the upcoming Netflix miniseries with Emily Blunt.
