This Is The Movie Chris Evans Has Seen The Most, And It's Definitely Not an Avengers Movie
Flashback to the '90s and early 2000s when teen movies were all the rage and the term “all the rage” was still acceptable. We’re talking about Cruel Intentions, Jawbreaker, American Pie, and She’s All That. Almost every famous celebrity now got their big break in one of those classic teen films—including Captain America himself, Chris Evans.
Remember that little film called Not Another Teen Movie, the parody that got destroyed by critics? Well, it looks like that flick is still the movie that Evans has seen the most and not any of the many Avengers movies in the Marvel lineup.
“It was my first movie, and when it’s your first movie you have to go see it with multiple people like family and friends. It also plays on TV a decent amount so oddly enough [that’s probably the one I’ve seen the most],” admitted Evans in a virtual presscon held by Smart for its newest ambassador.
It might have been railed at in 2001, but 20 years later, Not Another Teen Movie has practically garnered a cult following. Definitely nowhere near the caliber of Marvel’s fanbase, but Cap still has a solid rep among the lovers of all things irreverent.
Jokes aside, we learned plenty about Evans in Smart’s presscon, like the fact Dodger was the smartest decision of his life, social media makes him sad, and he can’t wait to visit the Philippines when the pandemic is over.
Evans is the latest celebrity endorser in Smart’s roster and the first from Hollywood. After bagging superstar group BTS as its first international ambassador, Smart aimed even higher and got an Avenger on its side. This is all part of Smart’s “Live Smarter for a Better World” campaign, which aims to encourage everyone to pursue advocacies, similar to the way Evans launched A Starting Point, a platform that battles misinformation in American politics. Cap's come a long way from being in just another teen movie. For the last 10 years, he's cemented his legacy on-screen as Captain America and off-screen as an outspoken citizen trying to do his own civic duty.
His advocacy was a big part of why Smart chose him to be its endorser, aside from the fact that Smart Communications president and CEO Alfredo Panlilio is a staunch supporter of Team Cap and even has his shield in his office.
