    Chris Evans Posted The Internship Cover Letter He Sent Out In 1998 And It's So Cute

    "Respectfully yours, Christopher Evans."

    We all know King of Handsomeness and Arms Chris Evans, right?


    Well, recently Chris tweeted a blast from the past: The cover letter he sent to casting directors in 1998.

    Wow. My dad found the letter I sent to DOZENS of casting directors during my junior year. Hilarious. #bestsummerever

    The letter reads:

    To Whom it May Concern,

    I am writing this letter to introduce myself to you and to make myself available to your firm for possible internship work during the summer of 1998. My name is Christopher Evans and I am a high school junior with an intense passion for theatre.

    I have been very actively involved in theatre for seven years and have chosen to spend the summer of 1998 taking acting classes on Saturdays at the Lee Strasburg Institute in New York City.

    Since my weekdays will be open I was hoping to arrange an internship in the city allowing someone to take advantage of a hardworking individual like me, in exchange for a tremendous opportunity to be exposed to the business side of theatre. I have enclosed a resume for your review. I would greatly welcome any input you might have. I am currently planning on visiting New York City during the week of April 20th to April 26th. I could make myself available to you then or at any time you wish, should an interview be desired.

    Thank you very much for your interest and for taking the time to look at this. I am most appreciative and I am very much looking forward to speaking with you.

    Respectfully Yours,

    Christopher Evans

    Luckily for Chris, his hard work paid off, as he followed the tweet up with this:

    And the resume/headshot I sent along with it is BEYOND humiliating. Truly comical. Luckily it did somehow lead to an internship. #dumbluck

    Which goes to show a lot of hard work and effort can go a long way! We just have one remaining question... WHERE IS THE HEADSHOT, CHRISTOPHER???

    I guess until we get our hands on that elusive headshot, we'll just have to remember the good ol' days when Chris was starting out as Tyler the Surfer.
