Chris Evans Reveals When He Got His Dodger Tattoo, Talks About Picking His Dog's Name

A photo that Chris Evans posted on Instagram this week went viral when fans realized he has his dog Dodger‘s name tattooed on his chest and now he’s opening up about that tattoo!

The 39-year-old actor opened up about his beloved dog and the tattoo during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, which aired on Thursday (October 29).

“That’s probably one of the purest relationships I have,” Chris said. “It didn’t take much convincing. I’ll never regret that tattoo. I’ve regretted a few in my life, but not that one.” He said it’s been two years since he got the tattoo.

Chris also talked about how he picked out Dodger‘s name.

“There’s a movie called Oliver & Company. It’s a Disney movie. An animated movie I grew up watching,” Chris said. “When I first saw him in the shelter, I said, ‘Oh man, that looks like Dodger from Oliver & Company.’ After I decided I was taking him home with me, I went through the process of choosing other names and I just couldn’t get off Dodger. I said I’m not going to overthink this one.”

Chris also opened up about reaching out to Trump.
