Not many people would claim to be unaware of who Chris Evans is. And yet, one of the world’s highest-paid models didn’t know the popular heartthrob.
Gisele Bündchen, a renowned Brazilian fashion model who became 2007’s 16th-richest woman in the entirety of the entertainment industry, wasn’t aware of the MCU actor whose current net worth is estimated to be about a whopping $110 million.
Back in 2006, a string of rumors about Evans and Bündchen had surfaced, casting the two in a romantic light, implying that they had secretly been dating. But a couple of years later, the latter doused a bucket of ice-cold water on the supposed spark when she claimed to not even know who Evans was.

Gisele Bündchen Didn’t Know Who Chris Evans Was
The early 2000s witnessed Gisele Bündchen and Leonardo DiCaprio rule the red carpet as one of the most marvelous power couples in Hollywood. But their trysts came to a heartbreaking end after five years of their relationship, and that is when Bündchen’s name got mixed up with Chris Evans with rumors proclaiming the former to have moved on with the Knives Out star. But as it turned out, the model didn’t even know who he was!
In an old interview with Arena Magazine, the 42-years-old model addressed the array of gossip floating around about her life, claiming if all that was being said about her was indeed the truth, then she’d be “married five times” and have had “ten kids,” out of which one would’ve been of “some actor named Chris Evans.” She further mentioned how she’d only heard the name just a couple of hours ago for the first time ever.
“If everything that’s written about me was true, I’d have about 10 kids and I’d be married five times, one of them with some actor named Chris Evans, whose name I heard for the first time two hours ago.”
Ouch. That ought to hurt. But given how the PEOPLE’s 2022 Sexiest Man Alive is currently “happier than he has ever been” in his current relationship, he probably couldn’t care less about the past.
