Actor Chris Evans, best known for playing Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, found himself trending on social media the other day when he inadvertently posted a snap of his camera roll that included a nude photo. Using that leverage for good, he’s tweeted out a reminder for Americans to get out and vote in this year’s already fraught election.
After the actor accidentally posted the nude photo on his Instagram stories, fans immediately flooded hashtags and searches for his name with unrelated photos in a bid to stop screenshots of the leak from spreading. His co-star Mark Ruffalo also weighed in on the mistake with a “silver lining.”
.@ChrisEvans Bro, while Trump is in office there is NOTHING you could possibly do to embarrass yourself. See… silver lining.

Now, Evans has created his own silver lining, tweeting out a reminder to vote in a tweet that started with the understatement of “now that I have your attention.”
