Chris Evans is used to getting attention as heartthrob Steve Rogers, aka Captain America. However, it was Evans' polite manners that are currently the talk of the internet. At Wednesday night's People's Choice Awards, Chris offered his arm to Betty White to help her walk onstage when she was named Favorite TV Icon, winning the hearts of internet denizens everywhere.

Chris was seated near Betty during the People's Choice Awards on January 7, says E! Online. When Ellen DeGeneres announced that White won the Favorite TV Icon category, Evans immediately jumped out of his seat to assist the 93-year-old actress. He was one of two gentlemen who walked White to the podium. Then Chris walked back to his seat and let Betty have the spotlight.

Chris also won an award for Favorite Action Movie Actor. He was also nominated alongside Scarlett Johansson for Favorite Movie Duo, but Shailene Woodley and Theo James took that award home for their parts in Divergent. USA Today's full list of winners and highlight reel features Captain America's act of modern chivalry first. Fellow Avengers actor Robert Downey Jr. won two awards for Favorite Movie Actor and Dramatic Movie Actor. Jennifer Lawrence won multiple awards, while The Big Bang Theory was the television favorite in many categories.
