In 2009, Chris Evans told The Advocate about his brother Scott's coming out:
"We spent the whole day together, got to the city, had some beers in my hotel room, got into a really great talk, and he came out. I was so glad that he did. That's got to be a difficult transition, but I come from the most liberal household you have ever heard of. . . . I think my mother was praying for [both of] us to be gay, so at least she got one of us."
