Share the one you found most surprising in the comments.

Best known for his role as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chris Evans is one of the most recognized faces in Hollywood.

Evans grew up acting in theater and made his film debut in the late 90s.

His first film called, Biodiversity: Wild About Life!, was an educational film co-produced by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.

At the time, Evans thought that his life’s purpose was to eventually end up living alone in the woods, surviving off the land.

Unfortunately for him, and fortunately for the entertainment industry, that dream never happened and Evans became one of the highest-paid Hollywood actors instead.

He got his big break in the 2005 comic book-inspired film, Fantastic 4, which helped lead Evans to his eventual superstardom in the MCU.
