Chris Evans finally joined the world of Instagram!
While people might assume that Evans had finally given in to societal demands for fans to have constant access to celebrities through different social media platforms, or even pressure from management to continue boosting his already huge profile, it turns out that the Captain America actor has joined for a far different reason.
Evans, who has already built up a whopping 3.5 million followers on Instagram, caved and joined the picture-sharing platform because he had ‘too many good pictures of his dog’.
“I guess I caved. I feel like such an old man. I’m so late to the party. You know what it is? I had too many good pictures of my dog,” Evans said to Jimmy Fallon on a May 15 interview. “I was like, they’re being wasted on my phone. I need to put these somewhere.”
The actor’s first two posts on Instagram are in fact, of his beloved dog named Dodger.
In Evans’ first Instagram post, the 38-year-old actor shared a picture of his dog grooming skills, which leave a lot to be desired.
Sharing a picture of Dodger looking a little bit bald in places, the Marvel star told his followers how he assured his dog that he knew what he was doing.
‘‘He seemed skeptical at first,’’ Evans said. ‘’But with the help of a few treats, I talked him into it. It went so wrong, so fast. I guess some things are better left to the professionals.’’
‘‘He hasn’t seen a mirror yet. I told him it looks great.’’ He added.
The actor does have some incredible doggo content on Twitter and it’s just waiting to make its way onto Instagram, and it truly is a joy to behold.
The pictures include some adorable photos of the actor snuggled up to Dodger, as well as some pictures of the dog rocking some fantastic stylish knitwear.
Surely, the entire Instagram community welcomes this kind of content with open arms!
