.@ChrisEvans Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself. See… silver lining.

What’d I miss?
— Scott Evans (@thescottevans) September 13, 2020
Of course, the famous Chris Evans brother also came to the rescue. Scott Evans attempted to make light of the incident by tweeting, “What’d I miss?” The Almost Love actor also playfully remarked that he was off social media for the entire day of the Chris Evans Instagram leak.
While we could all get a good laugh at the incident, it is also important to keep in mind that celebrities deserve privacy just like any other person.
Double Standards on Celebrity Nude Leaks
In comparison to previous nude leaks from celebrities, the response to Evans’ nudes was more wholesome and supportive. However, this is not the case for everyone–especially for women.
Although nude leaks are common in Hollywood, the public’s reaction to female celebrities’ leaks or even mere sexy photos vary greatly from that of male celebrities. There’s no denying that the double standards on nude photos remain rampant.

Done sweet talkin’… I am speaking my truth. Midnight Sky out now 💜 bad ass 3D pic by @vijatm my bff AND executive producer of Midnight Sky 👄 along with my mama @tishcyrus 2 of my favorite people on the entire earth. Couldn’t do it without either of you! (I mean I reallllllly couldn’t do it without you mama, I wouldn’t even be here)
Miley Cyrus is one of the female Hollywood celebrities who are not afraid to show some skin. Indeed, the Hannah Montana star has lots of photos of herself either wearing sexy outfits or completely stripped down. Until now, Cyrus continues to receive backlash and slut-shaming remarks from many.
Another victim of nude leaks is Paris Hilton. When she was only 19 years old, her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon released a sex tape entitled 1 Night in Paris. Salomon had intercourse with Hilton and released the tape without the heiress’ consent. The tape garnered a lot of negative comments from the public, most of which were crude remarks on Hilton being eager to seek attention through the tape. Moreover, others even blamed Hilton for agreeing to be filmed.
In our present society, double standards are truly still at large. What people fail to realize is that whether the person is male or female, they are still a victim. No one should be subjected to victim-blaming, objectification, or harassment. It is high time that people learn to celebrate body positivity and extend respect to each other, no matter their sex or status.
Chris Evans Twitter Response
Despite all of the commotion that his Instagram leak caused, Chris Evans stayed dignified and delivered the best response.
Now that I have your attention
VOTE Nov 3rd!!!
— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) September 15, 2020
On his Twitter account, Evans made use of the incident for a good cause. He gracefully and wittingly tweeted, “Now that I have your attention….VOTE Nov 3rd!!!” as a way to encourage his fellow Americans to register and vote for the upcoming elections. This just goes to show that Evans is indeed a role model and hero, both on and off-screen.
In an interview with Tamron Hall, Chris Evans addressed the leak for the first time on national television. Evans said that he had “an interesting weekend” that helped him learn new lessons.
The actor also sheepishly said that the incident was embarrassing. However, he gracefully added that one has to “roll with the punches.” Of course, Evans took the chance to thank his fans for their efforts in supporting and reassuring him.
Chris Evans Tattoos
A few weeks after the infamous Instagram slip-up, the public marveled over a new Chris Evans shirtless video. This time, he uploaded an Instagram story of himself back-flipping into a cold pool. Evans also wrote a caption saying, “Last swim before the pool hibernates… (It was freezing!)”
What made the video more notable was not just Evans’ toned physique, but also the number of tattoos that covered his body. Many fans were surprised to see Evans sporting tattoos on his muscled chest. Although this came as a shock to many, Evans does not actually shy away from showing off his tattoos.

As this photo shows, Evans is no stranger to being inked. He had his amazing Taurus tattoo done in honor of his mother, Lisa, whose zodiac sign is—you guessed it—Taurus.
On another note, a Chris Evans naked photo for the Gucci Guilty ad also showed his “loyalty” tattoo on the right arm. The actor had this inked because he believes that men should have loyalty, especially to family and loved ones.
Aside from these two, Evans also has six other tattoos that all have sentimental meanings for him. Without a doubt, Chris Evans is #goals when it comes to the best arm and chest tattoos for men.
After shocking the public with the infamous Chris Evans beard in Avengers: Infinity War, Evans continued to serve more surprises with his social media posts–whether accidental or not. Indeed, he is an admirable person with good looks, great talents, and of course, a patriotic heart.
While it is okay to admire celebrities like Evans who are known for their great physical attributes, it is also important to learn where to draw the line between pure admiration and mere harassment. Just like ordinary people, celebrities also deserve to be respected and have private matters to themselves. It is high time that everyone should learn to value consent, avoid double standards, and practice empathy.
