Scott Evans has quickly established himself as a protective brother as he criticized some of Chris Evans' fans for the way they behave towards his partners.
As a celebrity, I imagine having people pine over you is just part of the job.
There's always someone convinced that they'd be the star's perfect match if they only had the chance to meet in real life, and as a very good looking guy who brings to life a superhero, I've no doubt that Chris Evans gets it more than most.
Unfortunately for so many of those hopeful people, they will never have the chance to cross paths with the Marvel star, and it's even less likely that they'd get him to fall in love with them.
That's just the way the cookie crumbles, but while a lot of people are willing to accept that, others decide to take out their frustrations on the one person that he has sparked up a romance with.
Evans is thought to have started dating actor Alba Baptista some time in 2021, and during an appearance on Nick Viall's podcast, The Viall Files, his brother, Scott, described their relationship as 'pretty serious'.
Many people might be happy that the actor has found love, but Scott made clear that his brother's relationships often attract a lot of negativity.
"It's tough, people can ruin things pretty quickly," he said. "The way people can be, it can make it pretty hard to date someone like that because you think like, 'oh I'm just dating a person, he's a guy', and then all of a sudden it's article after article after post after post..."
Scott also called attention to the kind of comments Evans' partners get for being in a relationship with the star, saying: "Everybody [is] just being like, 'you are a piece of crap', to anybody he's tried to date, and just destroying them and... you know, you can only take that for so long."
He expressed belief that the backlash Evans' partners get just for being linked to him can make 'relationships kind of hard for him', and went on to explain how the family has witnessed the rise of internet trolling in real time.
"Twitter wasn't around when he first started making movies, and so just being able to see it all and what can happen, it can be a dark place," he said.
"People can get very bold with the things they think are appropriate."
Thankfully, though, both Evans and Baptista seem to be handling any negativity coming their way, with Scott saying that they seem 'happy' and that he 'approves' of his brother's choice of partner.
