Chris Evans' "Avengers" superhero Captain America is majorly buff, but the 30-year-old actor doesn't see him as all that powerful - at least, not compared to the rest of the "Avengers" crew.
"I saw it, and I was like, Captain America has no business being on this squad ... Iron Man is shooting f*****g missiles and Thor is calling out lightning and Hulk is ripping apart jets, and I'm like, taking the stairs," he jokes with Details magazine in its May issue. "But that's the way it is. That's what the movie requires, and that's OK."
Regardless, we're willing to bet Evans is in poster form on a few bedroom walls - just as he did with one particular Oscar winner when he was a teen.
Evans revealed to the magazine that his first celebrity crush was none other than Sandra Bullock circa 1994 - also known as the "Speed" era.
“I saw 'Speed' when I was in seventh grade, and I was like, that's my lady," Evans said. "I literally had a big poster [of her].”
These days, the ladies catching the actor's eye are the ones who keep it low maintenance.
“I like wet hair and sweatpants. I like sneakers and ponytails," Evans told Details. "I like girls who aren’t so la-di-da. L.A. is so la-di-da. I like…Girls who give me a hard time, bust my chops a little.”
They also shouldn't be surprised if they can make him cry: “I weep at everything,” Evans admitted. “I emote. I love things so much - I just never want to dilute that.”
