As a native of Boston, Massachusetts, actor Chris Evans is a known fan of the New England Patriots. In a previous interview with the Men’s Journal, Evans rated himself as “off the charts” when it comes to his fandom level with the Patriots. In an interview with “Jimmy Kimmel Live” several years ago, per an article on NBC Sports, Evans admitted that he loves quarterback Tom Brady more than the Patriots themselves. “Tom’s up there. I love the Patriots like any sports entity, but Tom is a special man,” Evans said during the interview.
Evans still a fan of Patriots
Now that Brady left the Patriots and signed a two-year deal worth $50 million with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Evans said “Jimmy Kimmel Live” during Friday’s interview that he’s still a fan of New England. “I have, I have,” Evans replied when asked by Kimmel if he’s yet following the Patriots even without Brady. However, the actor admitted that he’s following the Buccaneers that he normally would. “But I would be lying if I wasn’t also following Tampa Bay a little bit more than I normally would though,” Evans said, as transcribed by the author from Kimmel’s YouTube video.
