In a recent interview with USA Weekend, Captain America: The First Avenger star Chris Evans revealed that the star-spangled superhero will have a theme song in the movie.

“There is a Captain America song, but I don’t sing it,” Evans said. “The U.S. government won’t allow me to go to war because it’s too risky and they can’t afford to lose me, but they use me as a propaganda tool and they send me on a USO Tour. So there’s a whole Captain America song, and they try to make him a little bit of a celebrity to try and sell bonds. There is a Captain America song, and there was a week of shooting, and I had that song in my head. I couldn’t stop humming it! It was so annoying. But it’s a funny sequence actually.”

Captain America: The First Avenger also stars Hugo Weaving, and Tommy Lee Jones, and is set to release on July 22, 2011. [Source]

You would think that after having already starred in one big-budgeted Marvel Comics adaptation that actor Chris Evans would be comfortable with the kind of media attention that such movies generate. However, Evans recently revealed to USA Weekend that the attention he received as Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, in the Fantastic Four was “nothing close” to the scrutiny he is under now as the headliner of Captain America: The First Avenger and that he isn’t comfortable with the added responsibility and constant media attention. In fact, he almost turned down the role because of it.

Filming is one thing, but all movies are relatively similar. The work comes in the form of press. You go all over the world and you don’t sleep and it’s just answering a lot of the same questions thousands of times and trying to promote this thing you’ve worked on so hard. … This movie is a lot of that—it’s gonna be a lot of press. I have a little bit of an anxiety issue. I wasn’t making whatever movie I wanted to make – you still have to struggle—but I was very happy, very content, with what I was doing. I’d make a movie every now and then and I’ve made a good living and I got to do what I loved and I managed to stay out of the public eye, and I was very happy. This was one of those things where it was like, “Alright, if you do this, there’s really no off switch. There’s no rewind. You’ve got to make sure you’re ready and that you really, really want this.” A lot of times, people only see the good part and they forget how tricky it can be. For some reason, I only saw the bad. When I first got offered the movie, I just only saw the negatives and ran from it.

The cover of the upcoming weekend edition of USA was teased via TwitPic and it reveals the stars of Marvel Studios’ latest comic book superheroes to come to life on the big screen, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth as the title characters in Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor. Though they are not in costume, they are posing with their characters’ trademark weapons—Cap’s star-spangled shield and Thor’s mighty hammer, Mjolnir—and this is the first publicity shot of the pair posing together since they took the stage at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con in Marvel’s announcement of the full cast of next year’s super-team movie, The Avengers.

The first of Marvel’s pair of superhero movies to debut this summer is Academy Award-winning director Kenneth Branagh’s (Hamlet) Thor adaptation. Written by Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz, Don Payne and Mark Protosevich, Thor tells the story of how Asgard’s mightiest warrior, the brash prince Thor (Hemsworth), was stripped of his powers by his father (Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins) and cast into exile on Earth. Powerless and very much a fish out of water, Thor discovers love in the arms of a mortal (Academy Award-winner Natalie Portman as Jane Foster) and finds his true calling as the protector of humanity. The impressive cast also includes Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Rene Russo, Tadanobu Asano, Kat Dennings, Idris Elba, Joshua Dallas and Tom Hiddleston.

Chris Evans tries to make his co-stars laugh when filming sex scenes, and though they are sometimes awkward, he admits he occasionally has ”too much fun”.

Chris Evans has had “too much fun” shooting sex scenes.

The ‘Captain America’ actor always tries to make his co-stars laugh when shooting intimate moments, but admits filming raunchy footage doesn’t always go well.

He said: “It depends on the person. I’ve done bedroom scenes where the other person isn’t comfortable and it’s tricky.

“I try to make people laugh. You have to laugh or you’ll cry. But yeah, some of those scenes have been awkward. But then again, some have been way too much fun.”

The 29-year-old movie hunk has romanced some of the world’s most beautiful women, having dated actress Jessica Biel for five years before they split in 2006, and more recently being linked to stars such as Ashley Greene.

Despite his dashing good looks, the actor insists he doesn’t receive a great deal of female attention, apart from in more flirtatious environments such as nightclubs.

“If I’m in a club, women are bolder. But if I’m walking down the street then people leave me alone. I don’t have any crazy fans,” he told the British edition of Cosmopolitan.

Chris is currently promoting upcoming action movie Captain America: The First Avenger, where he dons a tight-fitting superhero outfit as the title character. The heartthrob admits the role may gain him more attention from the opposite sex once the film hits cinemas, although he doesn’t know whether the attention will be good or bad.

“Will they change for the better or worse? It could go either way. But I’m ready for it,” he mused. [Source]
