Chris Evans Shares How He Deals With Anxiety and Why He Initially Turned Down Captain America

The Avengers star Chris Evans is sharing stories of his struggles with anxiety and why it led him to initially turn down playing Captain America. Evans is no doubt at the top of his game in Hollywood, with three Captain America and two Avengers films under his belt, with Avengers: Infinity War on the way in May. After few TV stints in the early 2000s, the actor’s breakthrough role came with the hit comedy spoof Not Another Teen Movie in 2001, and his career rocketed to the next level as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in 2005’s Fantastic Four and again in 2007’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in January 2018

Does a new year mean a new Netflix? Probably not, as their slate for the first month of 2018 is still troublingly light on movies that would be old enough to have their own Netflix accounts. Nevertheless, the streaming giant has plugged a few of the biggest gaps in their library of classic films, adding “The Godfather” trilogy, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” and the entire “Bring it On” series in one fell swoop.

Here are the seven best films to stream on Netflix in January 2018 (and click here for a list of everything that’s been added to the service this month).

7. “Definitely, Maybe” (2008)

Remember romantic comedies? They were nice. Sure, many of them were patently insane, and almost all of them reinforced some pernicious gender norms, but they could also be sweet and sincere reminders that we’re all just out there looking for love. “Definitely, Maybe” is one of the genre’s better examples,

5 Reasons Why ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ Deserves an Oscar Nomination
2017 has been an unequivocally weak year for animation. There wasn’t a new Laika movie, although strong Gkids titles like “The Breadwinner” helped fill the void. There wasn’t a new Studio Ghibli movie (although the forthcoming “Mary and the Witch’s Flower” is the next best thing). There were two offerings from Pixar, one of which was totally solid, and the other of which was “Cars 3.” By the summer, the situation was already so dire that something called “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” was considered a merciful reprieve from the endless trash parade of soulless corporate dreck like “Despicable Me 3” and “Smurfs: The Lost Village.”

And yet, amidst all of this darkness, there was a glimmering bright spot. And that bright spot… was something even darker. Black. “All important movies start with a black screen.” Those are the first words we hear in Chris McKay’s “The Lego Batman Movie,

Peter Travers on Harry Dean Stanton: 'The Coolest Dude in the Room'

Peter Travers on Harry Dean Stanton: 'The Coolest Dude in the Room'
"When I die," Harry Dean Stanton told me once, "people are going to say, 'I thought he was dead already.'" Typical Stanton – and atypically wrong. Though reports insist that the man actually has died at 91, avid moviegoers know he's always been around when we needed a Stanton fix at the movies. Hell, he made over 200 of them. His latest, ironically titled Lucky, with Stanton starring as an atheist on a spiritual journey, opens in two weeks.

Stanton was known as the quintessential character actor. He hated the phrase. "When you label something,

Chris Evans Opens Up About His Exes: ‘I’ve Had No Bad Breakups in My Life’
Chris Evans has no bad blood with his onetime significant others.

The actor recently opened up to Elle about the ex-girlfriends in his life and admitted that he doesn’t feel an ill will toward any of them.

“It’s very rare. But I’ve had no bad breakups in my life,” Evans said. “Typically, if I see an ex, I give a big hug, and it’s wonderful to catch up. If you’re ever fortunate enough to love someone and have them love you back, it’s worth protecting that. It’s rare that someone can truly know you.

Scenes from Airplane! Compared with Zero Hour (1957), The Film That inspired Airplane!

I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the movie Airplane! I mean how could you not? This is the movie that truly started all parody movies. Everything you see today in the “Scary Movie” franchise is because of Airplane! Remember Hot Shots? That’s because of Airplane!. If it weren’t for the Zucker brothers we never would have gotten Not Another Teen Movie which I happened to love by the way. “Surely you can’t be serious. I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley.” “Yes Stewardess, I speak Jive.” I mean there are countless lines in this film

Find Out What Year Chris Evans Lost His Virginity
Chris Evans covers the April 2017 issue of Esquire, and in his interview with the magazine, he touched on everything from family to politics to his Hollywood beginnings. Reflecting on his acting career, Chris said that he knew he wanted to act by the time he was in high school, and after doubling up on a few classes to graduate early, he quickly landed an agent and a part on a TV show. With a job in La lined up for that August, he'd walk into the high school during the springtime just to see his friends. "We'd go get high in the parking lot. I just f*cked off," he said. "I lost my virginity that year. 1999 was one of the best years of my life." Since then, Chris has had quite the Hollywood evolution, from Not Another Teen Movie to Captain America.

TV Characters I Cannot Stand: Ted Mosby From “How I Met Your Mother”

While this is 100% unsubstantiated, I’m making a claim right now that the reason you basically haven’t seen Josh Ridnour since How I Met Your Mother ended is because TV and movie execs felt that Josh Ridnour was exactly like his character Ted Mosby in real life. They realized that even if this had a chance to being true, there’s just no way they’d ever tolerate working with this guy. P.S. anyone remember Josh Radnor in Not Another Teen Movie? Yeah, he was annoying in that for half a second too. But let’s get to Ted Mosby In addition to

Missing From Movies: William Atherton’s Dick

Some actors were just born to be typecast.

“This man has no dick.” And neither do the movies anymore.

If you’re going to write a part specifically for William Atherton, it’s probably going to be inspired by his three most famous roles. That was clearly the case when he was cast for an episode of the TV series Lost, in which he plays a slimy high school principal character who was conceived with him in mind. It was a throwback to the assholes he embodied in Ghostbusters, Real Genius, and the first two Die Hard movies. Another one of his dicks.

Unfortunately, there aren’t enough people writing dick parts specifically for Atherton to play on the big screen. It’s been 20 years since his last (slightly) memorable movie continuation of the type, in Bio-Dome, and many of his fans probably aren’t even aware that he’s still alive and working regularly. Mostly
