People Are Losing It After Chris Evans' Real Accent 'Slips Out' During Interview
| Last updated
Social media users have been sent into a frenzy after hearing Chris Evans’ real accent slip out in an interview.
In case you didn’t know, the Captain American star is actually from Boston, so, naturally, when he’s speaking and isn’t in character he has a fairly strong Boston accent.
During a recent red carpet interview, Evans used his normal accent and Twitter users were not ready for it.
In the clip, Evans is speaking to a reporter from Access Hollywood and can be heard asking them: “What do you prefer - moustache or no moustache? Be honest.”
Responding to the clip one Twitter user said: “Chris Evans asking ‘moustache or no moustache’ in his Boston accent should be illegal and grounds for arrest.”
Another wrote: “Chris Evans putting that Boston accent into overdrive now that he's done with Marvel.”
Someone else joked: “Chris Evans is a much better actor than I previously thought if he's been hiding this thick a** Boston accent the whole time.”
While a fourth said: “I can’t stop thinking about Chris Evans’ Boston accent and it’s sending me into a spiral.”
Evans recently ditched his accent to play the role of Buzz Lightyear in Lightyear, which is released later this month.
Lightyear centres on the story behind the character that inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy from the Toy Story franchise.
A synopsis from Disney explains: “The sci-fi action-adventure presents the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear — the hero who inspired the toy — introducing the legendary Space Ranger who would win generations of fans.”
In the original Toy Story flicks, Buzz was voiced by Tim Allen, however, Evans has taken on the role of the ‘real life’ version.
And it seems as though Evans was delighted to bag himself the role, speaking last year, he told Disney: "The phrase ‘a dream come true’ gets thrown around a lot, but I’ve never meant it more in my life.
"Anyone who knows me knows that my love for animated films runs deep. I can’t believe that I get to be a part of the Pixar family and work with these truly brilliant artists who tell stories unlike anyone else.
"Watching them work is nothing short of magic. I pinch myself every day.”
While in a post to Instagram, he promised Pixar fans that the latest movie is 'special'.
He wrote: "Trust me when I say that they REALLY know what they’re doing over there. This one is gonna be special, and it doesn’t step on a single thing. I can’t even put my excitement into words. I smile every time I think about it."
Lightyear is released in cinemas on 17 June.
