'Captain America's' Chris Evans: No Superheroes, I Was Watching 'Care Bears' and 'My Little Pony' (Video)


Chris Evans’ Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters Friday. And while these days the star of the film has fully embraced his superhero persona, Evans admitted to The Hollywood Reporter that as a child, his games of make-believe were a little less…manly.

“To be completely honest, I was watching like Care Bears and like My Little Pony,” Evans said while hanging in THR’s Comic-Con lounge. But, he had his reasons for playing with the typically girl-centric toys. “I had older sisters, I had to, I had no choice.”

Not that the actor had never donned a cape before taking the Captain America role. “Every little kid threw a little bed sheet around their neck and ran around the backyard,” he explained.
