Chris Evans is out promoting his new movie (and soon-to-be summer blockbuster) ‘The Avengers’. Chris returns as Captain America in the Marvel movie, alongside other superheros like Thor, Iron Man, the Black Widow, the Hulk and more.
The shy actor sat down with Playboy Magazine for an interesting interview. He talks about Scarlett Johansson and how “blessed” (ahem) she is. He talks about Robert Downey Jr., and the types of women he’s attracted to. He says that we would be surprised with the kinds of women he’s attracted to, but after describing “her” I’m not that surprised at all. I could see him going for exactly the kind of woman he describes (like I know the man).
Here’s more via Celebitchy:
On co-star Robert Downey Jr. “When we started filming The Avengers, Captain America had not come out yet, and my big concern with Captain America was the press. I love doing one-on-ones. This feels like a conversation. This feels normal to me. But when you get on a stage, all of a sudden you feel like, man, there are 100 people just looking at you. It’s a little bit of a strange feeling. Your heart starts pounding, and that’s scary. Downey was good at just making me feel calm, saying, ‘Look, you’re not alone in this,’ and helping my confidence.”
On co-star Scarlett Johansson: “She is a beautiful lady. She really got blessed. I love that girl, man. She’s like my sister. I’ve known her for 10 years. She’s just one of the smartest people I know. It’s great when someone with a razor-sharp intellect wants to have fun. A lot of my buddies who like to have fun are a little lowbrow, and that’s fun. It’s enjoyable, but you can laugh at only so many farts.”
On being picky with da ladies: “I guess it’s a perfect combination of things. I’m incredibly picky, but that doesn’t mean I look for perfection. I like strange things. I wish you could see some of the girls I have genuinely had crushes on in my life. They’re not the girls you would assume. My friends cannot figure out the girls that, for some reason, I fall for. It’s a unique blend of traits, and on top of that, I’m really enjoying myself right now. I like being able to do what I want to do. If I wantto sleep until three today, I’m gonna sleep until three. If I want to go to Vegas this weekend, guess what–I’m going to Vegas. That’s a tough thing to walk away from, and so it has to be the right person. The pickiness makes that an uphill battle. I like girls who are self-deprecating. I like girls who make fun of themselves. If you can’t poke fun at yourself, what are you? I love making fun of myself, so I need a girl who can do that and mean it. And I like generosity. I like compassionate people. I’m not looking for some businesswoman who’s out there making millions and just here to take the world by storm. I just want someone with a good soul. That’s about it. The rest I’m really flexible on. I like a good ass, though. I will say that. It’s Playboy, right? I can say that? I like a big ass.”
His celebrity crush: “I used to be in love with Sandra Bullock when I was growing up. Sandy B. was my girl. I remember seeing Speed when I was in seventh grade and just thinking, That’s her. I can’t say I know her, but from what I’ve heard, she’s fantastic.”
I’m not a huuuuuuuuuuuge Chris Evans fan. I don’t think he’s particularly good looking, and to be honest, I can think of about two movies he’s starred in (I didn’t see ‘Captain America’). I’m excited to see ‘The Avengers’ – mostly because my boys are going to love it.
