Interview with Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth
Might I add before you read on this was such a fun and hilarious interview that this huge fan will never forget, both of them touchpoints on important aspects of their characters? As well as touch base on what it’s like to be recognized as their Marvel roles outside of the movie set.
One of my favorite parts was when Chris Hemsworth spoke about bullying ( I won’t spoil it look below ) which touched home for this mom. I also loved a part of the interview which you will also read below about how Captain America – Chris Evans briefly speaks about what it’s like to be recognized offset as his Marvel Character.
There was also some great humor about trying to distinguish which Chris was would ask questions and were asked to say either Chris 1 or Chris 2, which of course even they got confused about who was who.
Question: Tell us about your favorite fight scene in the movie? Each of you.
Chris Evans: In my favorite one I wasn’t even in, the Hulk Buster and the Hulk. I mean that’s my favorite one. That’s a long fight scene, too. It is great but God, it’s long. It keeps going.
Chris Hemsworth: Yep. I haven’t seen that scene. I haven’t seen the movie. But from the trailer what looked cool was the kind of tie-in a shot between all of us. And at the very beginning of the film where it cuts from each of our individual fights. And it looks like it’s one big tracking shot. I mean, that kind of blew my mind as to how they even did that.
Question: You guys find something that you discover about your characters each time you put on the costume? Or do you feel like you really know the character by now?
Chris Evans: Well, you know the character but you hope there are always new challenges. You hope as an actor there’s always a new hurdle to jump in a new arch to kind of discover. So, even though you kind of feel the first couple of movies you try to read as many comic books as possible to make sure the built-in audience, the fan base is going to be satisfied with what you bring to the screen.
But then in terms of where the character is going that’s up to the director and the writer and Joss, and that’s always new and that’s what makes these exciting to come back to. If it weren’t new, it would get old, stagnant and the audience would feel it.

Question: More about researching your character. Do you feel that playing Captain America has made you more wholesome?
Chris Evans: If that’s even possible. (The room breaks out into laughter) I mean, I’m already a boy scout.
Question: Do you think that’s changed you as a person at all?
Chris Evans: Sure. I mean, there’s no denying. Any actor will tell you if you have to live in any headspace for an extended period of time it’s going to, you’re going to take some of it home with you.
Now it’s, you know, there’s no way to sound right saying this but you hope, you hope that some of the characters come home with you. You hope to see more of yourself, you hope to see more of Steve Rogers in who you are on a day-to-day basis. So yeah, absolutely.
Question: Who was your childhood favorite super hero?
Chris Hemsworth: Superman was mine. It’s probably the only film that I really was interested in. It was probably the first of the superhero films, wasn’t it?
Chris Evans: Spiderman! I grew up with it and when you’re a kid you kind of like what you’re given to play with. So I had a Spiderman toy and so that was kind of my thing. I never really watched Spiderman comics but he was my guy. He was battling ninja turtles a lot.
Chris Hemswoth Asks: What would you play outside of our movies? What character would you love to play?
Chris Evans: To be honest, I’d love to play like an Ironman. You know, Steve Rogers is such an internal guy and I just want to make some jokes. Can I just make some jokes? I don’t get any jokes and you know, Ironman is this fun, free, loose guy.
And it was a lot like when I was doing the fantastic four movies. It’s fun to play with someone who wears their emotions on their sleeve. And Steve’s not exactly that way. So any other superhero who gets to be a little sassier I would take. Yeah, Cap’s not sassy.
Chris Hemsworth: So, black widow?
Chris Evans: Yeah. I’d look good in that black outfit.
Chris Hemsworth: Me too.
— A question from a 10-year-old fan —
Question: A little boy who is a victim of bullying. He has a question for you. Does he want to know if you think it’s okay for a boy to have long hair?
Chris Hemsworth: To have long hair? Of course, it is. God, yeah. Absolutely. My dad had long hair for years. In fact, he was asked to play for a football team, invited down to a big league in Australian football. It was quite a big opportunity. And the coach said, yeah, cool but you’ve got to cut your hair because he had a ponytail. And he said no and walked away. And gave up that dream and did something else, honestly.
Chris Evans: Wow.
Chris Hemsworth: And what was really kind of impressed me, I think part of him sort of says, I should have just cut my hair. But, you know, moral point and I think absolutely. God, why not? What is the issue there? And I think people who if anyone is narrow-minded enough and limited in their thinking to think that that is an issue or you know, then they’ve got the problem. And you wait, in a few years’ time, that kid will understand that that other kid has larger problems.
Chris Evans: Anytime I see a kid with long hair I’m like, that kid is so much cooler than anything I have ever was.
Chris Hemsworth: Girls love long hair so tell him that. Yeah, there you go! He’ll be fine. He’s going to clean up in a few years’ time. And that bully who’s teasing him is going to get nothing.
Question: Going off of that with little kids do you guys have a favorite moment or favorite thing to do offset but as your characters?
Chris Evans: With little kids?
Chris Hemsworth: Just dress-up for them.
Chris Evans: Oh sure, sure. Well, that’s the best thing about these characters, kids love em. You know, so there’s really nothing like seeing little kids’ faces kind of light up, kind of freeze at the moment because I know what that was like. I met Hulk Hogan when I was like 10. And I was like, oh. Everything just went blank and it’s just. Those little moments can really impact little kids’ lives.
So anyway you can kind of you know, incorporate yourself in those little kids. Whether it’s you know, whether it’s going to the hospital of kids who are sick or going to a theater where kids are learning to be creative and find themselves. Any type of environment for you can kind of encourage that is great. And that’s one of the real perks of playing this role.
Chris Evans: Moments I really love are like when I see a 5-year-old in full costume and when they notice me they freak out. It’s very cute and I love how they identify me with their character. What is a little awkward is if their parent who is a grown man comes up with the same excitement and in full costume.
****This comment sent the entire room into a fit of laughter at the actual visual of a grownup in full costume in full charge to meet Chris.****
Question: How much fun was it to have the scene around Thor’s hammer?
Chris Hemsworth: Fine with me because I couldn’t pick it up. It was great. It was good to see us all in normal clothes and not you know, being superheroes. And for me personally, you know, Thor can get so kind of stuck being godly you know, prince or king or whatever he is. And, I can’t keep up either. It’s nice to be in civilian clothes. And what do these guys do when they’re not saving the world? It’s relatable for people in the audience. And that was exciting to read and be a part of.
Chris Evans: Well said.
Question: Can we go off of what you are saying just now? Do you guys hang out after the movie?
Chris Hemsworth: We try not to. We try to save it for the screen.
Chris Evans: Oh yeah. I mean, truly sick of everybody. No, absolutely. I mean, that’s one of the best parts of this job. I mean, in any movie you’re going to get stuck doing a franchise with there’s a lot of variables that could go south whether or not the movie.
I mean, the movies could just be lousy or you could hate the director or you could hate the cast. Luckily, I don’t know how it happened but none of that has happened. We got great movies, love the directors and the cast has become family. So absolutely. Outside of filming we all hang out, we all cause trouble.
Chris Hemsworth: I can’t tell you how many people when I was about to do avengers went, oh, good luck on that set.
Chris Evans : Don’t work with Chris Evans.
Chris Hemsworth: The egos, yeah, especially him. But about like the egos and the, aw, wouldn’t want to maintain that set. I swear to God I didn’t see any of that and I still haven’t. And I don’t know if no one wants to be the **** or the one who kind of you know, But as Chris said, we got lucky and we do honestly have a great time.
Question: Going to the last question we had a second ago, do you ever kind of go into God-speak every so often?
Chris Hemsworth: Just when things need to get done. No. Just when the lights go off, yeah. Honey.
Chris Evans: Best answer ever. There’s no answer that is going to be better than that one ever. I was going to make a horrible joke about putting the cap back on the toothpaste. That is so much better. Oh man, I’m not Thor. There it is. That’s the best answer of the day.
**The rest of the this part of the interview is more suitable for adults since it was such good adult humor. Lets just say Chris and his wife have a lot of fun with his character at home.**
Question: You played so well with Tom Hiddleston, did you feel his absence at all?
Chris Hemsworth: No. Sick of that guy. I mean, when I came into it I remember talking to Tom for we were just doing the, we were doing Thor 2 right before this. And I thought, oh no, they are the sort of yen and Yang. And who’s Thor without Loki? but then you know, it’s a whole different dynamic. Just as exciting and you know, we said that for the Thor films.
Question: What aspects of Captain America’s personality are coming from you and what are the most difficult to portray?
Chris Evans: Well, I think every character has to come a little bit from you. The truth one of the things I do as an actor is trying to adjust who I’m speaking to. There’s always going to be whether you plan I mean. Obviously, if you’re not playing like some pedophile or something that like there’s always something.
I do believe there’s always something that you can tap into for every role because you have to make it your own. You can’t be too foreign off base because you know, you have to make it something familiar. I grew up with a kid named Charlie Morris and you can all write that down because he’ll love it.
And this kid who was an Eagle Scout. Do you know what it takes to be an Eagle Scout as a kid? This is a kid who was 18 years old and was going on like an Eagle Scout. He was just the best guy I knew, just a good guy. And so a lot of times you kind of draw parallels to what Charlie would do but the trickiest thing is to try to make him likable. You know, he doesn’t joke, he’s not fun. He’s not sassy or loud or anything.
So you try to play this guy and not come across as boring which is the most dangerous thing about the character. So I mean, it’s fun because it’s not me. I’m a very open guy. I wear my emotions right on my sleeve and this guy is a little more inside himself.
But that’s what makes it like a fun challenge and you do draw on parts of yourself. But I also lean on Charlie quite a bit, too, so. Write that down, Charlie Morris. He’s a good guy. Just a good guy. Like you just don’t meet –. He’s just a good guy. He just does what’s right.
That wraps up our amazing interview with both Chris’s! As you can see they have great chemistry on and off camera making this interview a seriously fun and informative one. After the interview ended we all stood together for an awesome group photo!!
