Paul Rudd On ‘Graham Norton Show’: I Felt Like A Child On ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Set (VIDEO)
Rudd reprises his role as Ant-Man in the upcoming Marvel movie, which features an ensemble cast of superheroes facing off in battle. The actor admitted on the British talk show that filming his solo movie “was like working in a bubble,” but joining the all-star cast of the third Captain America film was a more surreal experience. “All of a sudden, I’m standing around and seeing Robert Downey Jr. in the Iron Man suit, and seeing Chris Evans and all [the actors] are there,” Rudd said. “I felt like I was 10-years-old. It was crazy.”
Rudd went on to recall seeing Sebastian Stan, who plays the Winter Soldier in the movie, having his silver arm attached by the costume department. “It was like I was watching somebody bathing,” the actor joked. “I was like, ‘I’m not supposed to see this!'” Rudd then admitted he couldn’t help but go over and touch the metal limb.
The actor also related the time Chris Evans, who stars as Captain America, “had to run to the bathroom really quick, so he asked a prop guy to hold his shield.” Rudd then owned up to grabbing the shield and “running around with it.” “I was like, ‘Wow! It’s heavier than I imagined!'” joked the actor. Watch a highlight from Rudd’s “Graham Norton Show” appearance below!
