Chris Evans melted hearts when he jumped up to help Oscar winner Regina King to the stage Sunday.

When King, 48, stood up to accept the supporting actress Oscar for “If Beale Street Could Talk” at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, it looked like her dress got caught. Evans, 37, who was seated next to the actress and her mother, swiftly gave her his arm and helped her to the stage so she wouldn’t trip.

She thanked the actor as he led her down the aisle.

Fans loved the moment and King’s win.

People compared Evans to his Captain America character.

This wasn’t the first time the “Avengers” actor helped someone to a stage. In 2015, Evans escorted Betty White to the stage at the People’s Choice Awards.
