    They're both such great listeners. Scarlett takes longer to express her self, yet Chris doesn't interrupt her like a lot of guys would. I love that. He also seems comfortable expressing his intellectual side with her because she clearly gives him space to do so. It's nice to see them out of character, just being themselves and enjoying each other's company.

    25:57 makes me smile so much because you can see the way Scarlett looks at Chris like she loves and treasures him in a platonic way but it's so great because you can see her understanding how passionate he is about buddhism and their beliefs and that gets me every time because she understands him on another level to see how happy he is when he talks about what he enjoys.

      I was surprised by the comments from people on one of her Interviews in Ellen where she was talking about her fiancée and those stans were wishing for her divorce only because they want her to be married with Chris. Such people do not deserve to be called as fans like who will wish things like that for their favorite actor.

    Scarlett really is the full package, she's so intelligent and talented but she doesn't take her job for granted. You can see how much of a hard worker and how down to earth and humble she really is. I love the friendship and how supportive and respectful they are of each other!

  • Montesama314
    Montesama314 Year ago +311

    I love how they talk about Chris's insecurity with asking for more takes. She is surprised, but gets him to elaborate about it and work through the issue, instead of him just letting the fear settle there on his shoulders. Then she gives a bit of advice. It feels less like an interview and more of just a talk between friends on the set of Chris's new movie.

    This is by far one of my favorite duos. Their friendship is so pure and underrated. I love how much they support each other on camera and behind the scenes. The fact that Scarlett was one of his few actor friends to watch his play performance is so freakin adorable. I love how both of them just sit there and listen so attentively to one another. I especially love how Chris is very vocal and intellectually invested on what Scarlett was talking to him about. Plus he’s a very great speaker as well. This is the most wholesome interview I’ve ever seen. Love these two together, honestly ❤️🥰👏🏽

    • Nissan Skyline
      Nissan Skyline 3 months ago

      Can you please elaborate on what you mean by when you say their friendship is underrated, and by who? I'm just genuinely curious cause "underrated" means something that has not received the merit, recognition or praise it deserves. I'm sure a massive amount of people around the world are aware of their longtime/close friendship and have admiration for them, but I think the only ones who can truly value a friendship are the friends themselves, and whether the public does or doesn't is irrelevant. Is a personal friendship supposed to be deserving of critical acclaim from the masses?

    Their friendship is so genuine and beautiful because of their genuineness. I loved how direct, clear, and specific Scarlett's compliments were. I also loved how she went to his play. Chris also emphasized that she was his only actor friend to go. That loyalty and support is amazing and literal fire. I loved seeing them on screen together and now I can tell why I loved them together so much. Their connection is so there. Looking forward to more from them.

    Chris is so wise. When he said the audience comes to see themselves I really felt that. The way they both interacted with each other in this was refreshing to be honest. Scarlett is so amazingly talennted and insightful. You can tell how much respect they have for each other. Their friendship is so special. :)))

    This is a really great interview. Both actors definitely respect and admire one another. I hope they get a film that they can work on that is not comics-related or a rom com. Just something that we could get them on together again. I think it will be something good because they just work well together. Plus their actor’s chemistry is sooo good. Their friendship is so golden that it bleeds right through. I think this 2 had great conversations all the time.
    Hoping for a Chris and Scarlett film in the future. 😊

    • nikita blank

      They literally just got cast in a rom com action movie....again. I think they'll work great in a thriller like Nocturnal Animals. Chris can play the plot twist baddie to Scarlett's protagonist. It'll be nice to subvert expectation given their close working relationship on screen.

  • Tara Evans
    Tara Evans 2 years ago +88

    My favorite quote by Chris Evans is "They don't come to see me, they come to see themselves" there is such a deeper truth in that statement that the gift of acting gives us the mirror, to both see who we are and who we can be.

      They really go deep into the acting experience as well. Maybe because they are comfortable with each other, which leaves headspace to really dig into your memories and open up. It's different when you are anxious for reactions. Especially Chris seems very thoughtful, he has no guards up and really goes there, not afraid to show insecurities. Also interesting to see how different Scarlett is. I mean, she's also open and honest to go by the way how quick she's to reply, no filters there. But she comes across so very, very self-assured. I've got the "Ghost World" DVD, one of her early films, might have been minor age, and already there: Very extravert & outspoken, bubbly in an earnest way, very mature. Chris knows how to hold himself in public, be a handsome flirt, professional, short, to the point. Nice to see his more, I guess introvert (?) side here. Great to see how such different personalities have a common vibe. Lots to take away from this talk!

  • Ronniechops
    Ronniechops Year ago +34

    I love their friendship! This was such a natural, fluid conversation so you can tell that they are so comfortable in each other’s company and genuinely like each other. The Marvel movies are some of my favourites. Everything moves in and out of phases and I think there is room for everyone. We all need to escape our reality sometimes and in different ways. Marvel with its magic and the alternate reality of that with superheroes that can save us all is an amazing escape.

  • Pamela Rhyan
    Pamela Rhyan Year ago +25

    they're both such great conversationalists. there's so much depth to this simple conversation and they're both so level with each other, i wouldn't be surprised if this is only one of the many other things they talk about in their decade long friendship. undeniable respect for them both, because you can tell they both have so much of it for each other too. chris especially is such an interesting person to talk to i think, for his expansive but still understandable articulation of his real time thoughts alone. i know the bar is low for men but tbh its an underrated form of respect for him to sit thru her stuttering bec i myself get frustrated with people like that & probably would've expressed it more than once if not as a reflex, but he didnt do it not once so u can tell he genuinely has waited for her to verbally process her words in all their conversations

  • Starkreactor 82

    I will always remember them as Cap and Black Widow. However, Chris Evans & Scarlett Johansson seem like real down to earth people and make great movies outside of Marvel as well. Marriage Story was a great movie.

    On a personal note, as someone whose first language isn't English, Chris's eloquence in expressing his thoughts is superb. He has excellent vocabulary and even observes correct grammar rules (Scarlett does too) which we know can be ignored in spoken English.
    This is such a substantive conversation. Both of them are good speakers and listeners. I wish I could find one. 😔

  • Isabell Claudia
    Isabell Claudia Year ago +15

    A few years ago, I thought Chris Evans didn't talk much about his personal life because he parties a lot and is a player and maybe, because of his role in the public eye, some of that has transferred to him. But at the core, it shows that he's clearly thought deeply about the world and his role in it, and his own demands on himself and his life. He can articulate himself fantastically and shares so many rare insights into his thoughts. The public labels him far too easily, he has so much to offer beyond his career. The conversations with Scarlett show how intelligent they both are and how little platform there is in normal interviews to show their true personalities.

  • Mugatu

    i never realised how well spoken chris was. he truly has such a way with words and even though his vocabulary is little extensive for me (i’m young lol) i can still understand what he says because of how articulate he is. it’s nice to see him let his guard down a little and have a genuine conversation with not only a great actor but friend.

    It's interesting to see the difference in confidence levels here. Two very talented people, Scarlet is so invested and sure of her talent while Chris is more insecure and tentative with it. The dynamic is interesting to watch.

    These 2 have been in many movies together. They’re both wonderful people and talented actors. Watching them just chatting kinda humanizes them. I feel like we often see them as “Stars” and it makes them something else. Seeing them as people, sometimes vulnerable or imperfect makes me like them more.

      ​@MeTube It's DC. It was bigger than Marvel before the start of MCU. Commercially the movies still made a profit is an oversimplication. The Justice League got outshined by a raccoon and a tree. They underachieved. A lot. And it wasn't because of their actors. Their planning was poop compared to MCU. They didn't have a Feige-like figurehead to guide the film development. And a bunch of other crap.

      @MeTube So DCEU failed mainly because of the actors? Is that what you're saying? Justice League couldn't reach 1 billion because they didn't care about their characters? Did you not see a difference in the Zack Snyder version?

    • MeTube
      MeTube Year ago

      @Han Yolo Well that is where you are wrong. Because it IS the actors that bring the characters to life in the way that appeals to the audience. Casting directors wouldn't cast them otherwise.

      @__jan He basically said they are so different from traditional cinema that it goes beyond his concept of cinema, so maybe there should be another word for it. He didn't say there were no art to it, but they were so different to cinema as he experienced and made it and is interested in, they are hard to compare. And he burns for the more traditional way of making and looking at them. And it's true that serialised movie plotting, making, post-production, marketing, financing, watching and audience spectrum is entirely different to single standalone stories. And yet both exist in the same market. Many people don't even think about it or even realize that. It's understandable that a senior to that artform who is passionate about a form of moviemaking that is becoming more and more sidelined/niche, not for lack of quality, but because different internal machinations/functions/rules apply, is drawing attention to the fact. That's only fair. Instead of asking how something is meant, which they don't really understand (and which maybe Martin doesn't fully understand, because he is involved in his mode of filmmaking), people go for the worst possible interpretation of his words and bash him for it. He tried to clarify later, but once a narrative is out, people have formed their opinions around that already. Many people get bitter about that and entrench themselves in a me-against-the-world stance, but Scorsese was relatively cool about it. But it can also backfire and change people for the worse.

    To have that special connection, the friendship bond that these two have had over years time. Is truly incredible.

      @AeneasGemini pretty sure men are "less generous" when it comes to ordinary women too it's not just something do. For example, men literally have this entire thing of which women are just pump and dump/one night stands that they just use and run away from vs which ones are "worthy of any emotional investment and/or commitment" and in fact unlike men where it's heavily dependant on things like your career/bank balance which unless you were born into abject poverty is more or less entirely your doing i.e. something you have control over, with women men make the decision mostly based on your face, something that is 100% out of your control.
      But in the context of this particular case yea I agree him being *Chris Evans* makes it easier for him to pull this off.

    • AeneasGemini

    So much to learn from this. One massive thing is the eye contact and respect they have for eachother. They let eachother speak and listen intently. They aren't thinking about their dinner tonight or what they gotta do, they are putting their entire focus on who's in front of them. That's how a conversation should be.

  • G Irlbeck

    Love this conversation between these two friends. I happened to be in the audience for Lobby Hero the night Scarlett saw it. She walked past us at intermission and I fangirled (quietly). I agree with her that Chris was "in the pocket" that night. I'm a big fan of his, but still got lost enough in the performance that he frightened me at one point when his character was threatening the female officer "partner". I went to the play because he was in it, I confess, but I understand what he means about the audience wanting to see themselves & explore how they might navigate fictional situations. The audience was super sympathetic to Michael Cera's character. LH is up there on my list of his fave performances, with Snowpiercer (an under-distributed film caught up in studio producer power politics) at the top w CATWS. Listening to him talk about hesitating to ask for more takes, etc. makes me think he needs a supercharged bit of self-confidence like Downey got fr the role of Tony Stark. Part of what audiences responded to w RDJ/TS was Downey's JOY in the role. CE showed glimmers of that in CATWS, a film where it felt like he and the audience both fell in love with Steve Rogers.

      Trinell Jones I get it. “Technically “ it’s childhood. The cut off has to be somewhere, but I would argue that some would say it ends at 13. I went to a district high school where most of the kids knew each other since elementary. I came in 9th grade at 14, and I don’t feel like they’ve known me since childhood, but they have known me since I was a very young person. At 17 you’re almost an adult.

    As MCU fan, I watched this a year ago and as a Pixar fan I decided to watch this again because, on 39:45 onwards, I was intrigue when Chris Evans talked on how Pixar cares knowing he doesn't have any projects from Pixar then after a year ago, he was announce to be the voice lead of the upcoming movie of Pixar which is LIGHTYEAR!!! so that means he's working on Pixar by that time. SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!!

    What Chris said is pretty sad because it's true. When you do your job well, and you play a villain, all you're gonna get is hatred. You're not gonna get any of the sympathetic "awwh"s or "ooh"s you're just gonna get people that relate to you as the person in their life that they hate the most. And I guess it's a good thing because he's doing his job well, but still. Feels bad man.

    I love what they touch on in this discussion and what Chris was mentioning about finding good material to go off of and create a film. I think its within me to come up with some creative ideas and stories not told before. I don't know if anything I wrote would get into Chris Evans hands, but I would love to see him direct again. I've enjoyed a lot of indie films that feel original that take me to a place I have not been before. Even movies similar to Blaire witch project. Everyone would say, well your watching a knock off, but since I never saw Blaire Witch at the time I thought it was really inventive. Because I had nothing to go off of that I had seen before. It was all new to me.
    I remember watching the movie Archive and I thought it was exceptionally well made for the budget it had. It was a similar idea to Ex Machina, which I still haven't seen, but if I did I hope to find something unique in each that I would enjoy.

    I feel like at some point at least one of them might have had a crush on the other but the other wasn‘t interested or emotionally available, and they remained friends.
