Chris Evans squirms when he's grilled about accidentally posting THAT nude ...

On Saturday, the Captain America star accidentally leaked an X-rated photo on his Instagram story.

And three days after the embarrassing situation, Chris Evans was grilled about the nude image leak during his appearance on the Tamron Hall Show.

The actor, 39, squirmed as Tamron asked him what happened, raising his eyebrows and trying to smile through the awkwardness of the interview.

When grilled to give an answer on it, Chris called it an embarrassing but said he had a weekend full of 'teachable moments. The star kept his cool during the uncomfortable interview, even thanking his fans for their support.

Many of his fans came to his defense on Twitter over the weekend, asking people not to re-post the nude image and pointing out that they did not have his consent to re-share the private image on the internet, especially since he had deleted it swiftly after the accidental share.
