This is Ana de Armas.

And I'm Chris Evans

and this is the Wired Auto Complete Interview.

[upbeat music]

I'm Chris Evans.

[laughs softly]

I'm Chris Evans.

I'm Chris Evans.

Ready? Ready. I can't wait.

Is Chris Evans beard real?

Yes, it is.

Believe it or not,

CGI budget just couldn't afford it, so I grew it myself.

Is Chris Evans--

Playing Gene Kelly? Playing Gene Kelly?

Are you gonna do that?

I hope so.

It's not a Gene biopic,

he specifically didn't want a biopic.

It's almost like Almost Famous.

How Almost Famous isn't about a band,

it's about a boy that loves a band.

So, Gene is more than an ancillary character

but we're still tweaking it.

I would love to, though.

I wanna see that.

Is Chris Evans the killer in Knives Out?

Well, yeah. Well you've seen the movie.

Right? we've all seen it.

It's so funny, for a split second.

I was like-- Am I?

Oh no, that came out years ago.

We can all say.


Yes, he is. Nasty.

That's right.

Well, in Ghosted we actually get to like each other.


You know, in films we've done, we're very adversarial.

So, for this movie we actually get

to kind of enjoy each other's company.

Well, it's kind of like the like-hate-like thing again,

you know? Yeah.

I think like, as in real life

our relationship has evolved.

Here we finally get to have a good time together.


Not trying to kill each other.

[Chris laughs]

Not hating each other.

We kiss.

Yeah, we do.

And the beard is real.

Is Chris Evans--

Dad a dentist?

He is a dentist.

Which, you know--

I made an appointment.

I mean, no longer.

He's retired now, but-- Oh.

He was my dentist growing up.

You know, I had braces for a long time.

Your dad punished you with braces.

Trust me.

The orthodontics saved me. To keep you quiet.

Yeah, truly.

Was Chris Evans--

Was Chris Evans a child actor?

Not a professional child actor.

I mean, I did plays, you know.

That is being an actor.

I guess, I mean. Yeah.

I imagine it more being like someone who's actually

on sets, getting paid.

You don't need to get paid to get an actor.

Trust me.

Then I guess I was a little, you know, kid actor.


[Ana harmonizing]

Here we go.

Is Ana De Armas a Bond girl?

Yeah, I'm a Bond girl.

I didn't have a romantic story with Bond,

which is usually what happens

but I am a Bond girl in No Time to Die.

And it was one of the most wonderful experiences

I've ever had on set.

I love that movie and character. Yeah.

She killed it. Stole the movie.

[Interviewer] Do you have someone who you would want

to be the next Bond?

I'll do it.

Oh, do you?

I thought you were gonna say the next Bond girl.

The joke would've been funnier then.

Then you just said Bond.

That's not funny. Oh man, I don't know.

I think Paul Mescal should be the one.

Paul Mescal is great.

I'm a big Aaron Taylor-Johnson guy.

Does Ana de Armas-- Know martial arts?

I pretend to know martial arts, but no,

I mean I've done some boxing or kickboxing, but not enough.

Those are disciplines that require a lot of time

and years of study and training and all of that.

And I have not done that.

Is Ana De Armas...


Cuban. Cuban.

Am I Cuban? [fingers snapping]

That was a really long thing for the word Cuban.


[speaking in foreign language]

I'm Cuban.

I was born in Havana,

lived there until I was 18 years old

and then I moved to Madrid

and I still have my family there

and my home, and I miss it every day.

I love my country.

[speaking foreign language]

Now I'm speaking Spanish.

Is she?

You haven't seen John Wick?

The last one, no.

Are you in it?

No, I'm not.

I'm not, I'm not, I'm not in John Wick.

I wish because I do love this franchise so much.

That's why I was so excited

and so happy to be called for the follow up in Ballerina.

It's a spin-off of John Wick

and it happens between John Wick 3 and 4.

In 2024, Ballerina is coming out and I'm so excited.


How did Chris Evans get cast as Captain America?


They wanted me to come in and read

and I was a little apprehensive.

It was a back and forth.

It was a little bit of a dance.

It was something I was really nervous about doing

and luckily they were really good people

in my corner who kept nudging me.

Kevin Feige and Robert

and a lot of great people kind of talked me into it

and best decision in my life.

I had to sneeze that whole answer and it never came.

So, I'm sorry if it seemed like my head was somewhere else.

You wanna sneeze now?

No, it's gone now.

How did Chris Evans and Scarlet Johansson meet?

Meet? We met on the set of Perfect Score.

We were both really young, you know,

I think after that movie she went off

to do Lost in Translation

and her whole world changed.

But yeah, we've known each other a really long time

and she's one of my dearest friends.

We've done how many films?

I mean all the Marvel movies.

We've done eight movies together?

This, I'm not liking this.

[Chris laughs]


We're racking 'em up, though.

We're getting there.

What are we trying to say here?

We're getting there.

Okay. I still have--

Five to go. Few more to go.
