As an actor Chris Evans has to understandably be careful about what he says about controversial topics such as Harvey Weinstein deciding to cut out scenes from Snowpiercer and add a voiceover due to his apparent belief that it needs to be dumbed down for American audiences. However, when the interviewer declares that the whole situation "fucking sucks", Evans' reaction pretty much says it all! The Captain America: The Winter Soldier staralso shares his thoughts on his upcoming directorial debut and the news that Dunkin Donuts will be coming to Los Angeles in 2015.

Chris Evans seems like a friendly laid back dude...I hate the interview kinda cornered him . I get what the interviewer said, but ANYTHING negative or percieved negative often gets blown outta whack with higher ups.

The Weinsteins have a bad habit of cutting films like that. Back in the 90s when they were re-releasing a number of Jackie Chan flicks for the states they would cut out entire sub-plots, re-edit, and add annoying hip-hop soundtracks. They did this with a number of foreign films they landed US distribution rights to.

Evans has always seemed like a really pleasant and easy-going guy so you know he's not going to step on his own foot or put himself in dutch with the studio by saying what he really feels, but his reaction to the interviewer's comment says it all.

There aren't any Dunkin Donuts in LA? Damn, what kind of primitive mud hole doesn't have a Dunkin Donuts?
DEATHbyEXILE - 8/13/2013, 6:38 PM
We've got Randy's Donuts

LA loves its Starbucks. I refuse to speak Starbucks code when it comes to sizes and I refuse to spend a kings ransom on a drink.

Hell yeah we do

Chris Evans comes across as so down to earth that I just want to hug him all day!

Wait...what'd I just say?

i love that chris evans is getting good interesting projects , he deserves it, he is always been open about alot of his movies not being that great and he just seems like a really cool, humble guy and the movies i have seen him in, he is far fom the worst part, he was the best thing about the losers and fantastic four and he was great in scott pilgrim, he might not have been my first choice for cap but now i cant think of anyone else playing that character,Chris is Captain America to me and when seeing the clip for the winter soldier, he looks like steve rogers now, maybe its the different haircut idk, he plays cap with such earnestness and to me the thing you have to capture about cap first and foremost is his humility, his earnestness, his good nature and his determination and attitude to never give up even before the leadership aspect of it and Chris nails that imo

Wow....not a deuche....refreshing

His reaction to the interviewer putting words in his mouth is priceless. It's like he can only smile and nod, but his vocal chords are shot.
MexicanChinman - 8/13/2013, 7:27 PM
He was awesome in the movie Puncture.

I do want to see Snowpiercer. Would like to see to add a Korean movie to my collection that DOESN'T have rape. Between the Vengeance trilogy, Thirst, I Saw the Devil... it's just hard to come by. Of course, that's just the genre my MovieStop sells, so that'd probably be why.

Levi,
I think it's an east coast thing.... maybe.
I worked at a Dunkin/Baskin Robbins... for like a month. When McDonald's is light-years ahead of the place, you know something's up.
HeadPool420 - 8/13/2013, 7:35 PM
Wow come to think of it I haven't seen 1 DD in the 5 years I've lived here in LA.
DudeGuyMan - 8/13/2013, 7:49 PM
Ah well. I'll just do what I always do. Pirate a UK version and buy it on Blu-ray when the price drops.
TheAbomination - 8/13/2013, 7:51 PM
Harvey Weinstein is a fat sack of shit in general. So yeah.
JoshuaDBr - 8/13/2013, 8:03 PM
Evans seems like a really cool guy. And if I do watch that movie, then I definitely want to watch the full version!!!
DaVinci31 - 8/13/2013, 8:38 PM
Everybody seems to forget this little gem he made

DudeGuyMan - 8/13/2013, 9:25 PM
Hecks yeah, @DaVinci31. Never forget the classics!

Drewbee87 - 8/13/2013, 9:36 PM
I bet Chris is thinking "I wish more interviewers were like this guy!" lol

Very underrated & underused actor.

Obviously I was first introduced to him through Not Another Teen Movie to which I enjoy his comedic timing & delivery in that & since that film, I've loved watching him grow as an actor, love him in Street Kings, Push, Cellular, The Losers & the like etc.

When he was first announced as getting the role as Cap I was ecstatic for him & thought it was a great casting choice personally.

Always comes across like a humble & genuine laid back guy & I think he deserves way more credit than he gets.

Definitely deserves to be a leading man in films a lot more & I think he would be great in some more big Action movies.

I look forward to his Directional debut & hope all goes well with the movie.

Annoying hip-hop soundtracks? What you want country music?
MatTaylorX - 8/13/2013, 10:00 PM
It certainly does [frick]ing suck. Won't be going to see it if they cut it.

How can you not have Dunkin Donuts?
PsyGuy - 8/13/2013, 11:40 PM
That interviewer has BEAUTIFUL NAIL POLISH!

Chris Evans

shake dat ass !




UrbanKnight - 8/13/2013, 11:58 PM
Dunkin Donuts is coming back to LA, I hear. Mom and Pop's stores had pushed them out (sticking it to the MAN!). Meanwhile we have Krispy Kreams and Randy's, and a lot of mom and pops donuts spots.
GirlyGeek - 8/14/2013, 12:46 AM
He's so damn wonderful.

Equivical - Got damn! The things I would do...

Dumbing down Snowpiercer for American audiences? Just release the movie as is in the US. Harvey Weinstein isn't giving us Americans enough credit.

That's great Chris Evans is trying his hand at directing. I hope his movie turns out well. I'll be checking it out for sure.

And I had no idea there wasn't a Dunkin Donuts in LA.
GetsugaTensho22 - 8/14/2013, 3:51 AM
Great actor AND great person!
I love this guy. Every movie he makes, he thinks how he would film himself as a director. He delivers nuanced performances because of that. Love him!
TelaVizion - 8/14/2013, 4:27 AM
lmao, the biggest news in this post is that L.A. never had DD before now...
ParisSun - 8/14/2013, 5:23 AM
Well I will not be watching a heavily edited version. I'll wait to see the whole film or steal it online like most of you.
fettastic - 8/14/2013, 6:41 AM
The sound on this video is so [frick]ing bad I can't hear a word he's saying.
fettastic - 8/14/2013, 6:42 AM
And yes, Snowpiercer is set up to be a HEAVILY torrented film.

Weinstein really is a [frick]ing idiot.
