Openly Gay Scott Evans Didn't Come Out Willingly; Dating Status Unveiled
American actor Scott Evans was closeted to the public eye until his brother accidentally revealed his sexuality. Before the disclosure, the actor played a gay role in the series One Life to Live, which often raised some eyebrows regarding his sexual orientation because of his convincing role.
Scott Evans' Accidental Revelation
Evans, famous for the ABC daytime soap opera, One Life to Live, admits that his friends and family knew about him being gay from his teenage years. But, he didn't reveal his sexuality, fearing it would hinder his career.
However, it was accidentally revealed by his older brother, Chris Evans, the famous Captain America from the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
During an interview with the Advocate, Chris accidentally revealed the truth about his brother. When asked about Scott's sexuality, he confirmed that his brother was gay. He affirmed:
Yes, I do have a gay brother. I’m down with the gays. Mostly I’m hanging out with him and his gay buddies, who are...hilarious. They’re the funniest people I know.
Likewise, in an interview, Scott shared that Chris received a lot of flak from his friends after outing his brother, and that is only when he realized his mistake. After realizing his mistake, Chris immediately asked if that affected Scott in any way. But Scott was happy that his brother was comfortable enough to talk about his sexuality.
Scott further added that he was at ease about the revelation and didn’t blame Chris for the news. He even quoted:
"Dude, I don’t care. It’s as if you said Scott Evans has blonde hair and blue eyes. It’s who I am, I don’t really care."
After the incident, Scott helped Chris learn about the struggles gay people faced in their day-to-day life. The Evans brothers are now strong advocates of gay rights, and Scott openly talks about his sexuality through social media.
