"I’m down with the gays. Mostly I’m hanging out with (my brother) and his gay buddies, who are f**king hilarious
Fantastic Four Star Chris Evans is forced to avoid nights out with his gay brother - in case the press begin to speculate about his own sexuality.
The actor's younger brother, Scott, is openly homosexual, and often asks the star to join him on outings to gay bars.
But Evans admits he is forced to decline the invitations, because he fears a photograph of him at a gay club would spark rumours which would haunt him for ever.
He says, "Iâm down with the gays. Mostly Iâm hanging out with (my brother) and his gay buddies, who are f**king hilarious. Theyâre the funniest people I know. Theyâve invited me out to gay bars before, and I said, 'Look, guys, Iâve got to draw the line there.' Thatâs where a photo will get taken, it will run in magazines, and before you know it, Iâll be living down the gay rumour for the rest of my life."
