Today, Evans took to Twitter to respond to the allegations:

I promise I’m not photoshopped into these! I just have a very disciplined pose. 🤦🏻‍♂️

(And I don’t know what to do with my hands)

Fans responded with other photos of Evans at red carpet events in similar poses, agreeing that the star does have a “very disciplined pose.” @arigcevans wrote:
