Chris Evans Says Lessons Were Learned After "Embarrassing" NSFW Leak

After getting the internet's attention over the weekend by accidentally leaking a photo of a penis on his Instagram Story, the actor addressed the situation on Tamron Hall's daytime show.

This weekend, lessons were learned by Chris Evans

Unless you were living on a remote island without access to the internet this weekend, you likely heard about the Marvel star's NSFW social media mishap. As the story goes, the actor shared a screen recording of his family playing Head's Up to his Instagram Story. However, the footage also included the video ending on the actor's phone and returning back to his camera roll, which included a photo of a penis. Naturally, eagle-eyed fans did not miss the brief moment and, though Evans eventually deleted the post, it was too late as social media erupted over the racy snap. 

On Monday, Sept. 14, Evans finally addressed the viral moment, tweeting, "Now that I have your attention…VOTE Nov 3rd!!!"

Of course, Tamron Hall had to bring it up while Evans was a remote guest on her show Tuesday, Sept. 15. The host credited him for encouraging fans to vote and using the awkward leak to "get our eyes on something more important."

Evans cleverly responded, "That's called turning a frown upside down, Tamron."

The actor further addressed the situation, telling Hall "it was an interesting weekend full of, uh, lessons learned."

"Lots of teachable moments," he added. "You know, things happen. It's embarrassing. You gotta roll with the punches."

The blockbuster star also gave a shoutout to his fans, who have come to his defense and tried to shift the public conversation with photos of the star with his dog.  

"I will say I have some pretty fantastic fans who really came to my support," he told Hall. "That was really, really nice."

Some of Evans' famous colleagues also publicly weighed in on the matter. His Knives Out co-star Jamie Lee Curtis reshaped the actor's tweet about voting. "My boy!" she wrote. "Proud of him. Got MY attention!"

Meanwhile, Mark Ruffalo tried to comfort the star. "Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself," he tweeted to Evans. "See… silver lining."
