Chris Evans Breaks Silence

'Top Gear' : Photocall at MIPCOM 2015 In Cannes

As loud as he was on Top Gear, it was equally surprising how quiet Chris Evans has been following his departure from the UK TV Series. Until recently, Evans had only brief closing words of his departure. But he has released more information and in quite a classy follow up to his departure, Evans wrote some words of high praise of his ex-coworkers.

In a column in The Daily Mail, Evans talked about his tenure at Top Gear as “a complete honor, privilege, and a pleasure.” He goes on to say, “It seems I may well have been a square peg in a round hole. Which is fine if you keep on hammering it in, but the moment you leave it to do its own thing, the universe will quite rightly pop it back out again. I think the phrase is ‘not meant to be’.”

Evans’ departing words to cohost Matt LeBlanc provided praise and support to the now lead host of Top Gear. “May I just take a few lines to assure you what a total mensch and extreme petrolhead Matt LeBlanc is. For me, he is the man. He is the captain Top Gear truly needs going forward, the perfect torso for the rest of TG’s limbs. Not only does he eat, sleep, breathe, and dream engines, propshafts, and trail-braking, but the overwhelming quality that struck me about him is that he’s just such a pro.”

Now that the first season of the rebooted UK TV series is in the bag, we can’t wait for the what’s to come in the next season.
