Chris Evans, 53, was a bit blank on Thursday morning Blank radio show when he warned his interviewee, Jeff Goldblum, 67, “let’s not go there” after asking how long he had been married.
The Hollywood actor and musician has starred in some of the highest-grossing films of his time, including Jurassic Park and Independence Day, as well as their respective sequels.
He was on the breakfast show to talk about his new jazz album, I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This, released last Friday.
After Jeff’s introduction, Chris asked him about his plans for Halloween, but the actor stepped in and wished the radio host a happy birthday, misreading a listener’s call.
“Happy Birthday!” He said, “Hey, are you and Beverly fantastic?” Damn it ! Jeff exclaimed enthusiastically.
Chris sounded a little confused and interrupted: “No, it’s not me a Beverly, it’s a listener and Beverly.” He said, referring to the wedding anniversary call he made earlier on the show.
âWait a minute, oh! I thought it was your birthday, âthe musician joked after realizing his mistake.
Listeners could hear Chris laughing as he admitted, “No, if I have, I’m in real trouble Jeff!”
Quick to correct his mistake, Jeff asked how long the radio star had been married: “Have you been married for many years now?”
“12 or 30, don’t go Jeff!” Chris joked, “I’m going to have more trouble!”
After the awkward blunder, he finally confessed: â12 years old. 12 years that I have been married and happy, it’s okay.
Jeff congratulated him and quickly answered Chris’s first question about Halloween: âSo Halloween, I love Halloween,â he chuckled as Chris tried to stifle his laughter.
Chris and his wife, a golf professional, Natasha, met in 2005 when they became partners in the Sky One All-Star Cup Celebrity Tournament.
The couple married two years later and share four children together, Noah and Eli, then welcomed twins, Walt and Boo late last year.
Chris and Natasha keep their family life relatively private, although Chris often talks about it on his radio show.
Earlier last week, he made a huge family mistake on the air after revealing details of his sister-in-law’s pregnancy, which then revealed a private family affair that only some people knew about.
The radio star is currently broadcasting from Portugal where he is on vacation with his immediate and extended family.
“I took a bit of a family faux pas,” the radio DJ said Tuesday: “I have to make a full apology as a family.”
“After yesterday’s show and trying to remember who I’m on vacation with, I said something that I really, really shouldn’t!” Chris grimaced.
“Yesterday I said, ‘oh and Liv is pregnant again! “He recalled as the studio fell silent:” What she is. But not many people knew. So for that I apologize wholeheartedly, “he said before continuing. .
The Chris Evans Breakfast Show airs weekdays at 6.30am on Virgin Radio.
