'Avengers' Star Chris Evans 'Weeps At Everything,' Wants To Live In The Woods

Posted: Updated:

Chris Evans may play a superhero Captain America in "The Avengers," but it turns out the at the 30-year-old Bostonian is really just a softie at heart.

"I weep at everything," Evans told Details. "I emote. I love things so much -- I just never want to dilute that."

Perhaps Evans' weepiness has something to do with his upbringing. "We all act, we sing," said Evans. "It was like the f---ing von Trapps." Growing up, reports Details, Evans would practice tap dancing with his siblings in the basement of his family home.

However, even though Evans was always drawn to performing, he was uneasy about accepting his breakthrough role as Captain America.

"What if the movie comes out and it's a success and I just reject all of this? What if I want to move to the f---ing woods?" he told the magazine.

Evans has never been shy about expressing his distaste toward Hollywood lights and "la-di-da" girls. In fact, Evans reveals that he feels most at home in the woods -- in the middle of nowhere -- with his thoughts.

"For a long time all I wanted for Christmas were books about outdoor survival," Evans recalled. "I was convinced that the woods were calling me. I camped a lot, I took classes. At 18, I told myself if I don't live in the woods by myself by the time I'm 25, I have failed."

Sure, the "Avengers" star may not have achieved his boyhood dream, but when he gets the opportunity, the actor still appreciates the time he spends in the solace of the woods.

"I swear to God, if you saw me when I am by myself in the woods, I'm a lunatic," he says. "I sing, I dance. I do crazy shit."
