Hayley Atwell plays Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger. To honour that she did a photo shoot for Esquire and God bless her for it.

Here are a few things she had to say about the film.

When I met with the director of Captain America, Joe Johnston [out July 22], I hadn’t seen the script, and I had to go meet him, and we spoke for like an hour. With a lot of those big films, they’ll do that instead of an audition — and I prefer them, because I love a chat. I’ve found the messier the meeting gets, the more successful. You vomit on someone’s shirt, it’s probably going to work in your favor. Because you shared something: an intimate moment of drunken behavior.

When Chris Evans first took his shirt off on the set of Captain America, I just instinctively grabbed his man boob. They kept it in the film. So we did a couple of takes of me being really inappropriate with my hand on his pec for the duration of the scene.

Tommy Lee Jones [who plays an American military officer in Captain America] is really scary. Because he’ll take his time answering a question. It feels like he’s ignored you. He does it long enough for you to feel completely humiliated. I said hello to him and then there was a long pause and then he said, “Do you like opera?” He’s got a very, very dry sense of humor.

Next up is possibly a Jimi Hendrix biopic — an independent film with Andre 3000 from OutKast playing Jimi Hendrix. But I don’t know, really. The Atwell team is like, Let’s just wait and see… I love how I call them Team Atwell because each of them works with fifty other people as well. Sometimes they forget who I am. I was on the phone with a member of Team Atwell once, and we chatted for like half an hour and he said, “I really loved you in that film.” And I said, “I wasn’t in that film.” Team Atwell doesn’t even know who Hayley Atwell is.
