Chris Evans’ ideal lady: “I like Boston girls who sh-t on me. Not literally.”

Chris Evans covers the May issue of Details to promote (what else?) the upcoming Avengers movie, in which he reprises his titular Captain America role. The photoshoot isn’t terrible — it’s not as Timberlake-y as his recent Prestige shoot or nearly as skeezy as last year’s GQ shoot — but it leaves a bit to be desired. The interview, however, is hilarious — blame the Bud Light, perhaps? I had no idea this guy was so funny, so buckle up for that part of the ride. Otherwise, we’ve heard Chris talk before about his press-related and Hollywood-related stage fright. Now Robert Downey Jr. also adds his perspective on the phenomenon as well. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

Chris Evans

Robert Downey Jr. on Evans: “I’d seen him around. We share an agent. I like to spend a lot of my free time talking to my agent about his other clients-I just had a feeling about him.” Downey diagnoses his friend with what he terms “low-grade red-carpet anxiety disorder.” “He just hates the game-show aspect of doing PR,” Downey says. “Obviously there’s pressure for anyone in this transition he’s in. But he will easily triple that pressure to make sure he’s not being lazy. That’s why I respect the guy. I wouldn’t necessarily want to be in his skin. But his motives are pure. He just needs to drink some red-carpet chamomile.”

Scarlett Johansson on Evans: “Basically every actor including myself, when we finish a job we’re like, ‘Well, that’s it for me. Had a good run. Put me out to pasture.’ But Chris doesn’t strike me as someone who frets about the next job. He has this obviously masculine presence-a dude’s dude—and we’re used to seeing him play heroic characters, but he’s also surprisingly sensitive. He has close female friends, and you can talk to him about anything. Plus there’s that secret song-and-dance, jazz-hands side of Chris. I feel like he grew up with the ‘Partridge Family.’ He’d be just as happy doing Guys and Dolls as he would Captain America 2.”

On his type of chick: “I love wet hair and sweatpants. I like sneakers and ponytails. I like girls who aren’t so la-di-da. L.A. is so la-di-da. I like Boston girls who sh-t on me. Not literally. Girls who give me a hard time, bust my chops a little.”

He’s always hungry: “If I could just take a pill to make me full forever, I wouldn’t think twice.”

He’s unnaturally close to his mom: “The first time I had sex, I raced home and was like, ‘Mom, I just had sex! Where’s the clit? Still don’t know where it is, man,” he says, then breaks into a smile composed of equal parts sh-t-eating grin and inner peace. “I just don’t know. Make some movies, you don’t have to know.”

He’s a Buddhist who loves to drink: “The majority of the world is empty space. Empty space!” he says again, slapping the table and sort of yelling. Then, in a slow, breathy whisper, he repeats: “Empty space, empty space. All that we see in the world, the life, the animals, plants, people, it’s all empty space. That’s amazing!” He slaps the table again. “You want another beer? Gotta be Bud Light. Get dirty-you’re in Boston. Okay, organize your thoughts. I gotta take a p-ss …”

Ohmygawd. All of a sudden, I’m entirely going fangirl on this guy. Too bad I’ve never been to Boston, right? Hey, I can pretend. But seriously, I can really appreciate that Evans has a very healthy sense of humor on top of his usual navel-gazing, introspective talk. Other than the part of talking with his mom about sex (which admittedly is a bit too much), he’s basically endearing himself as the full package in this Details interview. Here’s more of the photoshoot, which I also wish was shot with the benefit of Bud Light.

    If he talked to his mom about the sex he was having with me, she would never allow me into their house.

  2. Lisa says:

    The only movies I ever saw him in were, “What’s your Number?” and “Not Another Teen Movie”. I didn’t realize who he was in either movie. He needs to do more romantic comedies.

  3. Jenna says:

    Unf. Captain Sexy, how I want thee. I’m not from Boston, but I’d give him a hard time…and then some. Bow Chicka Wow Wow. ;)

  4. Roger says:

    He was in a really good movie called London.

  5. Lexi says:

    When man is talking public about his ideal woman it means that he is gay. Gay. Gay.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah totally…O_o
      WTF are you talking about? Guess based on your logic (and I use that term loosely) 90% of my male friends are gay (I wonder if they know that they’re gay? Should I tell them?) The reporter asked him what his ideal type of girl was and he answered the question. “HE ANSWERED THE QUESTION?!?! ZOMG! He must be gay!!!” Ugh.

    • Eve says:

      Let me think what I’d do if he was actually gay…YUP, I’d still hit it. Hard. And multiple times.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I would hit it like a house on fire, Eve. Like a house on fire..

      • Eve says:

        Damn, competition! And to think I was just beginning to like you, OriginalKitten…*silently reaches for slutshank in pocket*

    • Megs says:

      This is such a stupid comment, especially because his brother IS gay and the whole family is close and loving about it. Chris is not gay and is a supporter of the gay community. He would probably think this whole conversation is hysterical.

      • Snookie Wookie says:

        Exactly. His brother is out and proud and Chris is totally supportive. He even goes to the gay bars occasionally with him and I don’t suspect it’s because he’s secretly in the closet. This guy is totally comfortable with himself and if he was gay I don’t think he’d make a big issue of it, nor would he hide it. Like Eve said, even if he was gay I’d STILL hit it.

    • Zoe says:

      Are you serious or trolling?

  6. Jessica says:

    ahh…. if I could find a man that loves Bud Light as much as I do!!! lol

  7. Kristen says:

    Have you seen him in Danny Boyle’s “Sunshine”? Quite a good movie no matter what, but he’s really funny and kind of wonderful.

  8. Tiffany27 says:

    He seems cool to hang out with. I could be his girl. I’m a ball buster :)

  9. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I’m a Boston girl! And I will definitely give him a hard time! I love him.
    The stuff about his mom was a bit weird but I can make an exception.

  10. Just checked his wiki page and he was born on june 13 same as me. The only difference is his 9 years my senior

  11. serena says:

    gawd, white pants sure suit him lol great asset ,man!

  12. grace says:

    Funny interview. Jessica Biel is pretty LA la-di-dah though, right?

    • Kelly1 says:

      That’s why they broke up! Plus I think she got more Hollywood what with leaving 7th Heaven and dating Justin Timberlake. Chris is different.

  13. Stacie says:

    Chris has always been Sexy but lately he’s been on Fire . Just so Beautiful too look at . : D

  14. Enny says:

    Boston girls don’t get nearly enough credit. Glad to see someone appreciates us! :)

    • AJ says:

      I am a Boston girl too and I agree! Most people either think we’re uptight and snooty. Or we want to pick a fight with you.

  15. Kelly1 says:

    I’m a Boston girl and I keep hoping I’ll run into him one day but I haven’t yet. I don’t mind the stuff about his Mom they are just showing how close he is to her and I’m sure that was years ago when he was growing up, which to me is healthy (I’m sure he is more measured and private now).

    Also, I think I read his Mom teaches acting in the Boston area. Maybe I’ll take her class! When Scarjo mentions his song and dance side it’s because he can sing and I think he plays an instrument. I’m totally fangirling him too Bedhead. :)

  16. Brooke says:

    Girl, I have been on board this train since the movie The Losers (also starring the delightful Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Zoe Saldana). Go watch it!!

  17. Gene Parmesan says:

    @ Brooke i love the losers. I also love his film ‘Cellular’ he is sooo gorgeous the only chink in his armor is dating Jessica ‘no career so i decided to do a musical now i will marry my cheating boyfriend cos what else do i have going for me ‘ Biel. Im glad he is soo private though, i dont know much about him

  18. I Choose Me says:

    I have loved this guy in everything I’ve ever seen him in. He has such natural charisma and a pretty good sense of humour.

  19. GeekLuva says:

    *raises hand* Count me as a superfangirl! I don’t mind the superclose mom stuff. He’s talented,charming, uber-sexy, annnnd funny? His strong family ties are just icing on the cake!

  20. Jordan says:

    I think he has finally grown into his looks, although I still can’t think of a movie that I’ve seen him in except for a spoof movie but I can’t think of the name. I haven’t seen Captain America, the character is kind of a boring one to me. I’ll probably see the Avenger’s movie though, so maybe he will impress me then.

  21. mymy says:

    Could we please stop acting like gay talk has to be expressed from one stand point or else.When did differing opinions become a crime?
    Grow up

  22. Happy21 says:

    Love. Him.

    He is so hairy and I find it super-hot. He is a man that is for sure.

    Can’t wait to see me some Avengers!

  23. Anne de Vries says:

    Awww, I find the way he talks about his ideal girl super endearing :-)

  24. the original liv says:

    i was wondering if you guys were going to cover this interview. glad you did.

    fyi, chris, i’m a so cal girl through and through. a bit la di da, but i also like to bust chops. lol.

    it’s cute that he’s such a mama’s boy. the interviewer also mentions that chris bought his mom their house when his parents split – how sweet.

    ugh…he’s so cute

  25. Christina says:

    I’m from Boston…I HAVE A CHANCE!!!!!!!

  26. jc126 says:

    Needs a Boston girl? I’M ON IT. I’ll channel my inner Charlestown or Southie girl and give him a hard time, if that’s what he wants. Usually I’m pretty nice, but I got that beyotch inside me. And my voice sounds bitchy naturally, so that’s a plus.

  27. grey says:

    I’m still trying to figure out how Jessica Biel thought Timberlake was a better catch than this one. He’s so underrated.

  28. Ari says:

    What about a Bronx girl who will give ya a hard time and smack around a little, too? ;) He is so fine and I love the photographer who did this shoot – whoever it was knew exactly what they were doing to get the most masculine hotness that is Evans. He is absolutely delicious (and furry, I love too – and buff AND HOT and I need to go away now)

  29. Camille (The original) says:

    I can see that this guy is attractive, but he does nothing for me. He’s like dry toast to me- boring. No charisma and he’s very generic.
    And if anything, after reading this interview the coke rumours about him seemed more real after reading it.

  30. aud says:

    I’m a Boston girl. sign me up

    just gotta get divorced

  31. Launicaangelina says:

    @Bedhead, just saw him on E! News. It made me love him more…

  32. Chi says:
