Partying with Captain America

Edith Zimmerman, who’s an editor at The Hairpin, pretty much blew off her profile of Chris Evans for GQ and ended up just partying with the soon-to-be-famous actor (once Captain America hits theaters) for a few days.

Oddly, it’s probably the most honest and naked celebrity profile you’ll ever read … mostly because she all but admits through it that celebrity profiles are bullshit in nature.

ince we’re both single and roughly the same age, it was hard for me not to treat our interview as a sort of date. Surprisingly, Chris did the same, asking all about me, my family, my job, my most recent relationship. And from ten minutes into that first interview, when he reached across the table to punctuate a joke by putting his hand on top of mine, Chris kept up frequent hand holding and lower-back touching, palm kissing and knee squeezing. He’s an attractive movie star, no complaints. I also didn’t know how much I was supposed to respond; when I did, it sometimes felt a little like hitting on the bartender or misconstruing the bartender’s professional flirting for something more. I wanted to think it was genuine, or that part of it was, because I liked him right away.

Is this the part of a celebrity profile where I go into how blue the star’s eyes are? Because they are very blue.

The entire thing is hilarious. Well-played Edith, well-played.
