Read Chris Evans's "Hilarious" Internship Cover Letter from Junior Year of High School
Even heroes have to start somewhere: Just ask Chris Evans.
The hunky Captain America star took to Twitter on Wednesday to share a hilariously awkward look at his humble Hollywood beginnings. Evans, 34, posted a photo of a letter he sent to dozens of casting directors looking for a summer internship when he was just a junior in high school.
"Wow. My dad found the letter I sent to DOZENS of casting directors during my junior year," he wrote alongside the photo of a wrinkled cover letter from 1998. "Hilarious. #bestsummerever" he added.
The best part? Evans revealed in a follow-up tweet that the letter did, in fact, land him an internship that summer.
"And the resume/headshot I sent along with it is BEYOND humiliating. Truly comical," he wrote. "Luckily it did somehow lead to an internship. #dumbluck"

Comical, yes, but dumb luck? We're not so sure. Evans's most recent film, Captain America: Civil War has already grossed more than $1.1 billion worldwide since its release on May 6.
