Did you know: Chris Evans gets panic attacks. Yes, he does. This is one reason why he’s very private and didn’t really do any meet-and-greets on the Avengers’ sets.
It amazes and inspired me that a man who does what he does can do it, even with an anxiety disorder. You go, Chris.
This is why I get so upset when I hear negative comments about Chris and how he doesn’t seem as out-going as the rest of the Avengers cast. I remember hearing people complain about how he’s ‘rude’ and the like and it’s sad, because I highly doubt he intends to come off that way, he’s just more reserved than the others.
I remember hearing once that he actually went to seek psychiatric help before accepting the role of Captain America because of how anxious he felt regarding it. As well as the fact that he already played another Marvel superhero and he was concerned how comic fans would react to his playing another hero in that universe.
Just because someone’s in the entertainment industry doesn’t mean they’re going to be incredibly outgoing off camera just as much as they appear to be on camera. Some people just really enjoy acting; they’re not the characters they portray nor are they like their costars nor are they going to be incredibly outgoing because of their choice of career.
Now I’m really starting to root for this guy. Because, well. I kind of get the point more accurately than I wish I did.
I am legitimately crying. I look up to him so goddamned much. He’s my hero. I’ve always said that I love Iron Man because he has an anxiety disorder, but Captain America, my baby, has anxiety. I don’t have words to describe how I feel, other than saying that I don’t feel so lonely anymore.
In case anyone wonders why I love him so. It’s not (just) a physical appearance thing or even an acting thing. It’s THIS, right here.
Chris Evans is a goddamn inspiration and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise. Every time he opens up about his anxiety and I see that he’s dealing with it and fucking succeeding, I feel a little better and I think that if he can be okay, well then, maybe I can too.
I cried the first time I saw this interview. I cry EVERY TIME I see this interview. The “shhhhh” part…I get it. HE gets it.
One day I’ll get to thank him for it.
For the second time ever, I just could not outlast my dreadlocks.
After a second attempt, and after 1 year and a few months, my drealocks had to go. They were rad, but I just couldn’t deal with all the stimulus. Then, summer came and made things even more uncomfortable. Finally, after the headaches started, it was time for them to go.
I think that after another year my hair would have become more “neat” and less wild. I would have liked to see them fully mature, but it is what it is. I haven’t given up fully, though.
I think next time I’ll look into synthetics for a more light-weight, convenient, and temporary experience.
My favorite Dreamworks animation <3 (not counting the aardman collaborations)
I use Facebook as a blog/page reader and thats it! I have no desire to Like every damn thing, or get in touch with every person I ever met, or to have a cluttered feed that doesn’t even show what I really want to look at. I want total control of what I see and when I see it. So I like LISTS - especially for Facebook and Twitter where feeds can get really overwhelmingly chaotic.
Recently Facebook changed the way Lists works. It used to be that you could simply add a page to a List without having to “Like” it. I have my gardening Lists, my crafting Lists, etc. It’s great. I can keep a clean homepage and still follow a bunch of interesting pages. I can look at EXACTLY what I want to look at. (We all know Facebook’s algorithms for what you get to see in your news feed is shit.)
Lists, as of now, require you to Like a page before you even have the option to put it into a list. (Thank goodness Twitter hasn’t done this, or else i couldn’t stalk - er, follow - certain people without having to clutter up my feed.) Anyway, quick tip: you can “like” the page, add it to your list, UNLIKE the page, and it will remain in your list.
Facebook doesn’t really care if you like a page over the long run, they just want some quick-click from you to make it easier for them to compile all your data into nice, neat little packages of information so they can shove ads at you better. Isn’t that just lovely? =/
