About Chris Evans

Chris Evans is one of the actors who profited most from the boom in comic book movies popularized by Marvel in movies like Captain America and The Avengers. He was born in Boston in 1981, but he spent his childhood in the town next to Boston called Sudbury. He has two brothers and a sister. His father Robert Evans III works as a dentist, while his mother works as an artistic theater director.

He and all of his siblings were raised Catholic, mostly due to the influence of his mother’s side of the family. His mother has Italian roots. After Chris Evans graduated from high school he moved to New York to pursue a career in acting. The first step towards that goal was enrolling in the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute.

American actor Chris Evans has an estimated net worth of $65 million dollars, as of 2023. Evans is best known for his role as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Even during his younger years, Chris Evans knew he wanted a career in acting and was trying to be in commercials, movies and TV shows even as a teenager. When he was 19 he made his first big-screen debut in the movie The Newcomers (2000).

For the first part of his career, he played similar, jock-like roles in parodies and teen movies. Some of his most prominent roles in the early part of his career were, Jake Wyler in Not Another Teen Movie, and the protagonist of the teen movie The Perfect Score; one of the worst movies of the year, critics enjoyed butchering it to bits and pieces. One of the lowlights of the film, at least according to critics was Chris Evans himself. The majority of critics found his performance bland or totally uninteresting.

A few years later he would star in the movie Cellular, among a few really good actors like Kim Basinger and Jason Statham. While the movie was not a success, Chris Evans started to win critics’ approval. The majority praised his performance, while some indicated that he has a charisma that, if nurtured correctly, could help him blossom into a leading man.

The year 2005 would mark a shift for the budding career of Chris Evans. He would be cast as Jonny Storm, aka the Human Torch, in the Marvel movie The Fantastic Four. This would be his first of many portrayals of a comic book or graphic novel character. The movie was a mixed bag according to the critics, but a large success commercially and spawned a sequel, The Fantastic Four – Rise of the Silver Surfer. It would be safe to assume that Chris Evans was the biggest financial winner out of all the cast of those two movies, along with Jessica Alba.

Five years later, in 2010 he would sign a deal with Marvel that would transform his life forever. He was selected to portray Marvel’s iconic character, Captain America, across multiple films, as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Carried by good writing, directing and a stellar, charismatic performance by Chris Evans, the movie was a smash hit. It earned $370.6 million dollars at the box office from a $140 million dollar budget and heralded in the new age of Marvel movies.

A year later he would join the whole cast of Marvel characters in the comic book movie epic The Avengers. The movie would go on to become one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, earning $1.519 billion dollars at the global box office. His next big Marvel project was The Winter Soldier, a story about Captain America reconnecting with his long lost war buddy named Bucky Barnes. It was another financial success, earning $714.4 million at the box office.

He then went on to reprise the role in another Captain America movie, Captain America: Civil War, another Marvel film that earned over a billion at the box office with $1.153 billion dollars in global earnings. He later appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame; some of the highest grossing films of all time.

Evans was paid just $1 million to star in the first Captain America movie in 2011, still that was twice as much as Robert Downey Jr. was paid for his first starring role in Iron Man (2008). Now both actors are much, much better compensated. For Captain America: The First Avenger, Chris Evans was paid $15 million.

Plus, doing Marvel movies didn’t stop him from making other great, artistic movies as well. He was the protagonist of the movie Snowpiercer by the Oscar-winning Korean director Bong-Joon Ho. That movie was a commercial and critical success. Many critics called it “a masterpiece” and praised his portrayal of the leader of the rebellion.

In 2019, Evans starred in the award-nominated mystery thriller, Knives Out and Netflix’s The Red Sea Diving Resort. Most recently, in 2022, he appeared as Lloyd Hansen in the $200 million dollar budget Netflix Action/Thriller, The Gray Man.

Evans’ Total Net Worth

Ever since Chris Evans was cast as Captain America his career earnings have increased no end. While he has also done a little producing, a little directing and made many appearances as himself. It is his estimated $85 million dollar earnings from his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and his paychecks from his other acting work that has grown his net worth. Overall, it is estimated that Evans has earned career income of about $125 million dollars. That figure also includes his endorsements with the likes of Tecno Mobile and Gucci.

Of course like every other big name movie star, Evans has been based in California to work with the various studios that produce these big blockbuster movies. His tax obligations have likely been at around 50%. That is, considering California’s state taxes have risen in the years that Evans earnings have been so high. Before taxes, as a self-employed individual, Evans will have been able to deduct his business costs which are expected to have been around $7-10 million dollars. The remainder, $116.5 million, will have become around $58.25 million dollars, having paid the same amount in taxes.

Chris Evans has never married and has no children, therefore he has not had to pay alimony in any costly divorce. No, Evans has kept himself light and focused on his craft. This has no doubt helped him outperform his peers, which he has done, by a factor of around 3 to 1.

It is speculated that Evans has also kept a keen eye on his finances, as well. He has made some property purchases in California, including a $3.52 million purchase of a house in Beverly Hills in 2013. As well as several smaller acquisitions over the years. Still, that leaves a lot of money unaccounted for. Likely Evans has paid large sums into a diversified portfolio including stocks, bonds. It is estimated that his investments overall have earned him $9-13 million dollars after deducting the principle, losses and fees.

In his personal life Evans has likely spent $4-5 million dollars of his career earnings but also probably possesses assets valued at around $1-2 million, not including investment assets. Therefore, it is estimated that Chris Evans has a net worth of a rounded down $65 million dollars.


A young kid from a small town around Boston had big dreams. With a little talent, charm, vision and a lot of hard work, not to mention failed castings and auditions, he managed to turn his dream of being a movie star, into a reality. Naturally, there were times when those dreams of his seemed so far away that he thought about quitting, but he didn’t. After starring in Scott Pilgrim and the Fantastic Four movies, he was prepared for what his life would bring him next, the role of Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
