HOW MUCH IS A PINT OF MILK?
CHRIS EVANS

submit to reddit

Here's a treat for you: Chris Evans, aka Captain America in next week's Avengers Assemble, took our Pint Of Milk challenge. Can he stay sane in the face of the most bizarre questions ever assembled? Would he rather lose an arm or a leg? And does he know how much a pint of milk costs?

This interview originally ran in issue 219 of Empire magazine. Subscribe to Empire magazine to read our Pint of Milk interviews every month!

Chris Evans

What word do you most overuse?
Oh, man… Man.

Have you ever worn women’s clothing?
Man. Just kidding. You know what? I think I did a pilot for a TV show where me and three other guys all had to dress in drag.

So not around the house?
Well, I don’t just go to sleep in a nice pair of panties, no.

What’s the best sound in the world?
I really love the sound of my dog snoring.

When was the last time you used public transport?
Last time I was in New York. I used the subway.

If you had to, would you rather lose an arm or a leg?
Arm. ‘Cos I need to run.

When was your last wild night out?
Recently. (Laughs) I think it’s best if we just leave it at that.

How much is a pint of milk?
Er, we have quarts in America. A pint of milk? I’m gonna have to say I don’t know.

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever eaten?
Definitely eel. I had eel at a sushi bar once, it’s disgusting. I thought it was chicken. It looked like chicken. It was brown and looked delicious, and I was like “That looks safe.” It wasn’t.

If happiness were an animal, what would it be?
If happiness were an animal? I would say it would be a dog.

Your dog?
I think any dog, really.

When in your life were you most starstruck?
I think I saw Kobe Bryant out at a party once. I’m much more starstruck by athletes than I am by actors, and I think I saw Kobe Bryant at a basketball party and I just kind of froze. He’s monstrous.

When was the last time you were naked outdoors?
Oh God, it was before I came to this interview. I have a nice backyard. It’s very secluded, so every now and then I might just run out quickly and take the trash out.

What one thing do you do better than anybody else?
Is it really horrible to say that I don’t think I have anything? (Pause) Respect the fact you know you’re not the best.

What’s the most embarrassing DVD in your collection?
Hmm, there’s got to be something. I think I have The Sound Of Music. But that’s a childhood thing that I love. Is that embarrassing? I could probably do every line, and that’s even more embarrassing. Let’s move on. Next!

On a scale of one to ten, how hairy is your arse?
My ass?! Oh my God, I’m going to have to say a below average four.

Do you have any phobias?
Stupid questions. No, sorry, I’m just kidding. Crowds, you know, talking in front of big crowds, which I guess is strange because I’m an actor, but when you’re giving a speech by yourself it’s just terrifying.

Do you believe in God, and if so, what does God look like?
Well, I do believe in God, but not in the sense that you’re thinking: I don’t think He has white robes and a big beard. I believe He looks like you and me.
