Is Captain America a virgin? Chris Evans answers the big question

The actor seems to have a firm answer -- and suggests there may be some love in the cards during Civil War.

Marvel’s superheroes are busy people. If the comics and films are any indication, there’s very little time for life outside of kicking ass.

But the question still lingers: Has super hero Steven Rogers/Captain America, arguably the hottest Avenger of them all, ever been laid?

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Evans says that Cap aspires to have a family but is simply too busy saving the world to make time for himself.

“[Family is] certainly what he wants, but Cap puts what he wants last,” he said to EW. “That’s his M.O. And I think for so long he just refuses to bleed on people. So it’s hard to explore a guy who doesn’t want to make waves with his own personal conflict. He’s always trying to help the greater good.”

So will we ever see Captain America work on himself? Evans thinks Captain America: Civil War, which begins filming very soon, will make room for some personal time. “That’s why it’s kind of exciting to look forward to Cap 3,” he said when asked if the desire to always help the greater good will ever change. “I think we really scratched the surface on something great and I think there’s just so much to explore. Not just with the evolution of myself and [Anthony] Mackie’s character, but the reconnection with Bucky, and ultimately a relationship with a woman.”

That’s when the topic of Captain America’s virginity came up. Evans was not directly asked but decided to answer it anyway. “A love interest?” EW asked. “It’s funny when you think about it — he’s probably a virgin,” Evans said with a laugh. “He’s probably a virgin! I don’t know when it would’ve happened.”

As Evans rightly points out, Captain America’s Scrawny Steven Rogers days weren’t the most pleasant in terms of the character’s physical appeal. It’s possible his less-than-great looks, coupled with his frame of mind in the 1920s, blocked him from getting some action.

Now though? As a perfect human? He could definitely get it. From who? Any one of our readers, for starters. It’s just that he’s too busy fighting people like Ultron.

Hopefully he’ll make some time for himself during the Captain America threequel when he has breaks in fighting Iron Man. Civil War hits theaters May 6, 2016.

Now it’s your turn to sound off…

Quentin Tarantino says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior: ‘I knew enough to do more than I did’

In a new interview with The New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino — whose films have largely been distributed by The Weinstein Company — admits he knew how Harvey Weinstein treated women.

Earlier this month The Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports revealing horrific behavior by TWC founder Harvey Weinstein. The reports — and the revelations that came in the days after — rocked Hollywood.

Tarantino remained silent until Thursday’s interview. In it, he tells The Times he “knew enough to do more than I did.”

“It was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said, referencing the stories recently shared by “prominent” actresses.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Tarantino admits that he can offer nothing but a “crappy” excuse at this point. Even though he heard stories about his business partner on multiple occasions, he “chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. As if that’s O.K. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

The director, whose most recent film The Hateful Eight was distributed by The Weinstein Company, says that he tried to reach out to the disgraced Hollywood mogul after the reports were published, but Weinstein didn’t pick up. More of Tarantino’s remarks can be read over on The Times’ website.

As more women share their stories, Hollywood is starting to take (some) action. Last week The Weinstein Company fired their founder, and The Academy voted to remove him from their ranks.

Explaining their vote to expel him, The Academy said in a statement, “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society.”
