I’m having so much trouble finding a place to begin to explain how amazing it was to be in the room with Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth. They were the last interview of the day for the mommy bloggers and it felt like they were never going to come in. We could hear them outside the door laughing and joking with each other and it felt like an eternity because we couldn’t wait for them to come in. In actuality it was more like only five minutes but hey there was anticipation guys, it was Chis Evans and Chris Hemsworth!!
See, those eyes staring at me, oh yep we would have waited forever to interview them!
I’ve also been thinking who would win in a battle between Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, I mean Captain America and Thor? The most rugged man and the most sexy? I of course would pick Captain America but my daughter would pick Thor. I’ve always found Thor to be a little arrogant but I might be persuaded. Let’s make the decision at the end of the interview shall we?
What is your favorite battle scene from the movie?
CHRIS EVANS : In my favorite one I wasn’t even in, the Hulk Buster and the Hulk. I mean that’s my favorite one.
CHRIS HEMSWORTH : 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 shot between all of us. And at the very beginning of the film where it cuts from each of our individual fight. And it looks like it’s one big tracking shot. I mean, that kind of, that blew my mind as to how they even did that. Yeah.
Ok, so they picked the same answer that’s no help! Let’s see what question two was.
Who was your favorite super hero as a child?
CHRIS HEMSWORTH : Superman was mine.
CHRIS EVANS : I grew up with –. I mean 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.
With this question the winner has to be Chris Hemsworth because Superman is better than any ninja turtle but again this is still undecided because in my house ninja turtles are really popular. So who is winning right now? I think Hemsworth is ahead. The next question he answered with flying colors so he gets extra points.
Q : A little boy who is a victim of bullying. He has a question for you. He wants to know if you think it’s okay for a boy to have long hair?
CHRIS HEMSWORTH : To have long hair?
Q : Uh-huh, because you’re Thor.
CHRIS HEMSWORTH : Of course it is. God, yeah. Absolutely. My dad had long hair for years. In fact, 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 –. And he, 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 to 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, you know?
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.
Finally the kicker that wins the battle of the Chris vs Chris is this last conversation.
Q : Do you ever kind of go into character speak? 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 like 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.
CHRIS HEMSWORTH : Honey, let’s bring the thunder. Too far? Too far?
CHRIS EVANS : Oh, Jesus.
CHRIS HEMSWORTH : Let’s make it rain in here.
CHRIS EVANS : That’s phenomenal. God. What’s Cap speak? Uh.
CHRIS HEMSWORTH : Let’s talk about this.
Yep!!! and with that Thor has won me over. Sorry Cap, but I’m sure even you understand. Boy scout or a God? You can see Thor and Captain America battle it out in the movie Avengers Age of Ultron May 1st.
