Awkward Or Awesome? Chris Evans Got His Roommate A Gig Playing His Butt Double In What’s Your Number?

By  | 

First off, why do celebrities even hire body doubles? Isn't part of their job to have rocking bods (and asses, and boobs)? That disconnect aside, this story is pretty hilarious: Chris Evans decided to get a butt double for What's Your Number? after he learned that co-star Anna Faris had wrangled one (also of the ass variety). But instead of auditioning a bunch of random naked dudes, he turned to someone he knew and trusted: His roommate Zach.

Here's how he told it to Us Weekly at the movie's premiere:

“My butt double is my roommate in Boston! He's a kid I grew up with. Anna said she got a butt double for the bay scene. My buddy Zach was like, ‘Who's going to be your butt double?' and I said, ‘I don't know. Do you want the gig?'… I brought him down, he met the director, did a little spin around and boom—he's in the movie!”

So if we understand correctly, Chris chose a guy he's known since childhood, who he sees fairly often. (Whenever he's living at his digs in Boston and not on-location, that is.) Seems a bit like taking your work home with you, but we're also glad for stories of actors sharing the wealth with their buddies in a way that's not douchey like on Entourage.

But of course, poor Zach (no surname) is still being defined in relation to his famous buddy. So it begs the question…

P.S. These are probably Anna and Chris' butt doubles — or if it's the stars and they simply got photographed by JustJared, then I really don't get this body double business.
