Chris Evans Invites Patriots, Not Family, To ‘Captain America’ Premiere

Chris Evans’ latest guest list doesn’t include the usual suspects.

Evans revealed on Monday night’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that although he usually invites his family to his movie premieres, he actually switched things up for the upcoming premiere of “Captain America: Civil War.” The Boston-born actor instead invited several New England Patriots players.

Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Rob Gronkowski and Robert Kraft were among those invited, though, according to Evans, Gronk has yet to respond and Kraft can’t make it. Evans said he’s been to a few events with Kraft, whom he called “one of the best guys ever.”

If you’re wondering about Tom Brady’s invitation, it’s not that it got lost in the mail. Evans never has met the Patriots quarterback, even though he, like most Boston sports fans, would welcome the opportunity with open arms.
