I don't know, it's tough. Tom's up there, man. I love the Patriots, I like any sports entity, but Tom is a special man,” Evans said laughing.
And though he has a special place in his heart for the Patriots’ quarterback, Evans is glad that he’s never met his idol. “No I have yet to meet him. He didn't go to the after party. He might've made an appearance but he cut out,” Evans said. “He's Tom Brady, he had to go rule the world or something. I didn't meet Tom, and I'm not sure if I want to. It's become now like, I just want to let him be the thing that I imagine he is and that's it. That's good enough for me.” WATCH: EXCLUSIVE: Chris Evans Says He's 'Absolutely' Looking Forward to Becoming a Father The talk and excitement over Brady got Evans so excited that he knocked a glass over.
