About Chris Evans
It was not so long ago that Chris has turned 33 years old and he is already listed among the richest men in Hollywood. So how did Chris Evans net worth reach such an incredible heights? Well the short answer here is pretty simple: the actor has earned his fortunes appearing in commercially successful Hollywood movies, mostly portraying various legendary heroes.
Some of the most prominent movies that Evans has featured in include Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Opposite Sex, Not Another Teen Movie, Cellular, Push, Puncture, The Perfect Score, Sunshine, The Losers, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, What’s Your Number? and The Iceman. Needless to say, each of these films has contributed to the general growth of Chris Evans net worth. As for the day, Evans is filming for another hero movie – Avengers: Age of Ultron. The film is set to be finished in 2015. Another two movies featuring Chris or just his voice, A Many Splintered Thing (Chris is a narrator) and 1:30 Train, are currently going through post-production phase. If everything goes right, we will see them by the end of this year.
But let’s look at the beginnings of Chris’ career and see how this actor got where he stands today. Evans started his career appearing on television series Opposite Sex, where he portrayed Carry Baston. The same year Evans made his movie debut, appearing as Judd on The Newcomers. However, Chris Evans net worth growth did not gain momentum until 2005, when he was cast for Fantastic Four. It would be a lie if I told you that this movie was made on a tight budget – the production team had some $100 million in their disposal. The investment made did not go for a waste –Fantastic Four grossed more than three times more than it has cost to make – $330 million. Even the second movie, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, was not this commercially successful. Although the commercial performance of this movie was inferior, the sequel brought Evans a greater critical acclaim than Fantastic Four did. The role in this second movie has garnered him Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Actor: Action Adventure.
However, none of the movies that Evans has starred in up to date has earned him such a widespread admiration (both among the critics and the general audience) as Captain America: The First Avenger. Yes, Chris has not won all the awards he could have, but the number of nominations he has received was really impressive. To name a couple of them – he was nominated for Saturn Award for Best Actor and MTV Movie Award for Best Hero. Knowing that the audience loves him so much, I don’t see any reason why Chris Evans net worth would stop growing!
