Hollywood actor Chris Evans says in a new interview that he may sever ties with his friend Tom Brady if the NFL quarterback supports President Donald Trump.
"You don't want to alienate half your audience. But I'd be disappointed in myself if I didn't speak up," the "Captain America" star told The Hollywood Reporter. "Especially for fear of some monetary repercussion or career damage — that just feels really gross to me."
Evans was asked if he would ever play Brady on the big screen.
"I don't know. I really hope he's not a Trump supporter," said the 37-year-old Massachusetts native. "I'm just hoping he's one of those guys that maybe supported him and now regrets it. Maybe he thought it was going to be different — and even that bothers me — but maybe there's a chance now he just thinks Trump's an absolute dumb s—t, which he is. If he doesn't, if he's still on that Trump train, I might have to cut ties. It's really tough."
A "Make America Great Again" hat was spotted in Brady's locker in 2015, and Brady has played golf with Trump in the past.
Evans said he hopes the star of his hometown football team has changed his ways.
"I think maybe a couple of years ago, I might have tried to pull some, like, mental gymnastics to compartmentalize, but I don't know if I can anymore," he said. "So I'm just hoping he's woken up."
