If you know the "Distracted Boyfriend" meme that has made its way around the Internet, then you understand how funny it is that celebrities Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan have poked fun at it.
"Distracted Boyfriend" is a captioned stock photo in which a man looks at the backside of a woman walking by, while holding the hand of another woman, presumably his girlfriend. The girlfriend is upset that the boyfriend would be so unsubtle about checking out another woman.
The stock photo started making its way around the web in January of 2017 and immediately went viral with people attaching their own tags to the photos. From political interpretations of the image to science geeks using the shot as a way to describe their fascination for the solar eclipse, the photo is actually just one in a series of photos that depict the three people involved in a goofy love-triangle. In the series, the girls eventually become friends, excluding the guy.
Marvel stars Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan play Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes, respectively. The three Captain America movies largely revolve around Steve and Bucky's close friendship, leading some fans to wonder just how their relationship will continue to evolve. At ACE Comic Con in Arizona, the two actors reenacted the meme in question, with Evans being the boyfriend distracted by Stan's charm.
Both stars are known to have outgoing personalities and a lot of fun with their fans but Stan seemed to use the photo sessions to really give fans an experience. In a number of Twitter posts, Stan is seen embracing his fans, partially pretending to act out love scenes and giving the ladies moments they will likely never forget.
You can see both stars in the new upcoming Avengers: Infinity War set to be released on May 4, 2018.
