1 – His smile wasn’t as lovely when he was a kid
Chris Evans is one of the most handsome faces in Hollywood today, but the actor once didn’t have as beautiful a smile as he does now. Back in 2011, the 38-year-old told Jimmy Fallon that growing up he didn’t have the best set of teeth. Evans said, “I looked like the village idiot growing up because my teeth were trying to escape my face.” Fortunately, his dentist father fixed the flaw which gave the Captain America star the smile we’ve come to love.
