There seems to be a reason Chris Evans has yet to make his Saturday Night Live hosting debut. During an ET Canada interview with Evans and Ana de Armas about their upcoming action comedy Ghosted, released Tuesday, the conversation turned to the fact that the blonde actress will mark her first time at the helm of SNL with her upcoming episode of the 15th. of April.

When asked about making a cameo in the episode with Karol G as a musical guest, Evans made it clear that a brief appearance would be much more appealing to him than hosting the NBC comedy series. “Well, now I can handle a cameo,” Evans replied. “I’ve avoided hosting SNL like the plague for years just because I’m so scared. But it would give me many sleepless nights.”

Later in the interview, Evans admitted that his concerns may stem from the star’s prior awareness of his ability to laugh. “Maybe I just feel that because I have really, really funny friends who once told me that I’m not a funny person,” he said. “It would just be everyday anxiety, constant regret: ‘Why did I do that? I could have been comfortable at home, in my bed, without worrying about it.”
Chris Evans and Ana de Armas, who also starred in 2019’s Knives Out and last year’s The Gray Man, play a couple approaching a date before realizing there’s one on Ghosted. There’s a lot they don’t know about each other, given that De Armas’ role is actually a secret agent. The film will premiere on April 21 on Apple TV+.
