4. He takes every single moment to thank his mother:

Steve Rogers may have lost both his parents in the comics and movies, but he does take the time to honor them as well.

Q: Who are your heroes in real life?

EVANS: Mothers, my mother. Being a mum is not an easy gig because you are shaping human beings. I will give dads credit too, but in my experience, mums bear the burden.

8. He says he may have become a painter if he didn’t become an actor, much like Steve Rogers hobby in Captain America:

 

 Evans grew up in Sudbury, Mass., a Boston suburb, where all three of his siblings were theater kids. His adolescence sounds like a real-life version of “High School Musical,” where he juggled sports (lacrosse and wrestling) with productions of “West Side Story.” He says he wanted to be a painter or animator (and only started reading Marvel comics after getting the role in the films.)

9. He rallied along with the rest of his Avengers crew in the #CapforStrat movement, an initiative started by Sophie Caldecott (Lipiatt) to get an advanced copy of Captain America: The Winter Soldier to her father who was terminally ill with cancer and could not make it to see it in theaters:

 

10. In December 2014 he helped raise over $3,000 for Massachusetts local charity group The Pettengill House, a charity focusing on providing education and therapeutic interventions for at-risk children and their families.

 After the autograph signing, Evans, his brother, Scott, two of his aunts and his mother, Lisa, hosted a sold-out charity holiday party that raised over $3,000 for the Salisbury-based nonprofit that supports underprivileged children and families in the Greater Newburyport area. The idea for the dual events came from a family conversation over Thanksgiving.
