Chris Evans: Staying Humble

Chris Evans may have plenty of buzz around him with his roles opposite Kim Basinger in the upcoming thriller Cellular (opening Sept. 10) and as one of the titular stars of next year's Fantastic Four, but success hasn't spoiled the Boston native yet. "My Massachusetts buddies don't give a crap" about his career, says the 23-year-old actor. "Hey, dude, I booked a movie," he'll say to them. The response? " 'Sweet. When are you coming home? '" Evans says. "They don't even care. They're very grounded and they've known me since I was 12 and a little geek. So there's no confusion with who I am to them. It's a good dose of reality to go back and hang with those guys." So was it his inner 12-year-old geek that led Evans to take on the role of Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four? "I think that it's every kid's dream to be a superhero," he says. "Who didn't run around with towels tied around their necks and jumping off couches?
