You’d assume celebrities are just swimming in money, so they’d naturally own the newest electronic gadgets as soon as they hit the market.
Well, that’s not the case for Chris Evans.
The Captain America star revealed on Twitter today that he finally got a new phone – after using the iPhone 6S model for SEVEN years.
The actor uploaded a photo to Instagram of his new phone updating with all his data, along with a heartfelt goodbye to his old model.
“RIP iPhone 6s. We had a good run. I’ll miss your home button,” he wrote.
“I won’t miss the nightly battle of trying to get you to charge. Or your grainy pictures. Or your sudden drops from 100% battery, to 15%, to completely dead all within minutes. It was a wild ride. Rest easy, pal. #tilthewheelsfalloff.”
It’s pretty impressive that he’s stuck with it for this long. The iPhone 6S was released back in September 2015, and was discontinued in 2018.
Back in 2020, a Twitter user pointed out that Evans still had such an old model of phone, based on paparazzi pictures of the star.
“Thinking about how Chris Evans is one of the most paid actors in Hollywood and still manages to have the iPhone 6 for at least two years,” they wrote.
It looks like Evans has upgraded to the newest model – an iPhone 13.
The actor recently took aim at critics of his latest movie Lightyear, who took issue with the same-sex relationship portrayed in the film.
“The real truth is those people are idiots,” Evans said in an interview with Reuters Television. “There’s always going to be people who are afraid and unaware and trying to hold on to what was before. But those people die off like dinosaurs. I think the goal is to pay them no mind, march forward and embrace the growth that makes us human.”
