Chris Evans marked his 37th birthday on June 13, and a handful of stars took to Twitter to congratulate him. Dwayne Johnson called out the fact that Chris is now "halfway to 74," while Chadwick Boseman shared a photo from their Avengers press tour. However, Octavia Spencer's message did not go over well with the actor, and he made sure to let her know. After all, Chris and Octavia did star together in not one but two films (2013's Snowpiercer and 2017's Gifted), so we kind of see his point. Take a look at their hilarious interaction below.
It all started with Chris thanking everyone for their "kind birthday wishes."
Thank you all so much for the kind birthday wishes!!!! I’m 37 today. Or as my emotional maturity chooses to label it, the 16th anniversary of my 21st birthday.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 13, 2018
Octavia then congratulated her former costar, writing, "Happy birthday." No big deal, right?
Happy birthday https://t.co/wx0WxWp6Fy— octavia spencer (@octaviaspencer) June 13, 2018
Would an exclamation point have killed you? Any number of emojis would have sufficed. The only thing missing from this tweet is a period. You better step it up next year, Spencer. https://t.co/4ogCDQt2qE— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 14, 2018
Octavia then tried to explain the situation to Chris.
Bro, I was gonna send my emojis in a letter!!!!!!! Miss you😘❤️👍🏽🍷👑 https://t.co/RhE5yjC7uL— octavia spencer (@octaviaspencer) June 14, 2018
Chris, being the gentleman that he is, let it slide.
I suppose I’ll let it slide. 37 has made me very magnanimous 😘 https://t.co/pin8q34hYj— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 14, 2018
However, it was already too late.
And, of course, their conversation didn't go unnoticed.
Jeez, get a room!! 😜😘 https://t.co/a1R6IDm3ey— Scott Evans (@thescottevans) June 15, 2018
Hey, Octavia and Chris are both currently single. Just sayin'.
