So, what comes first? Family or career? In a recent interview, Chris Evans who is in the Fantastic Four movies was talking about his openly gay brother Scott. In the interview he said, "I'm down with the gays. Mostly I'm hanging out with (my brother) and his gay buddies, who are f**king hilarious. They're the funniest people I know. They've invited me out to gay bars before, and I said, 'Look, guys, I've got to draw the line there.' That's where a photo will get taken, it will run in magazines, and before you know it, I'll be living down the gay rumor for the rest of my life."
This is an interesting situation. I don't understand why Chris can hang out with his brother and his friends but doesn't want to be seen in public with them. From the sound of it, Chris will only hang out with them in a house or a private location where no one knows he is hanging out with gay people. But, then he does this interview where he says he does hang out with gay people so to me I don't see the harm in going out to some clubs with his brother. Does his brother go to straight clubs with him? Is Scott worried that straight rumors will follow him for the rest of his life? That all of his gay friends will shun him because he was seen hanging out with straight people?
Even if you get spotted at a gay bar, he has given this interview and explained that he is not gay. Well actually he doesn't say that does he? He just says he doesn't want the gay rumor to follow him around forever. Do you think it makes his brother mad or do you think his brother understands that a career is more important than family? Is it a big deal even that he is not going to gay clubs with his brother? I just think that it is an interesting decision. In my opinion I would go to the club with my brother and his friends, but then again my career is not based on public perception and I have always been a big family supporter. Of course I have to say that considering I get free rent and food from my family. What do you think?
