AceShowbiz - Paul Rudd is a real Marvel fanboy. The actor, who stars as the title character in 2015's "Ant-Man", revealed he completely "fangirled" when he was on the set of "Captain America: Civil War" to reprise his role as Ant-Man.
The 47-year-old admitted that filming the Ant-Man movie "was like working in a bubble." And "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," he said on BBC's "The Graham Norton Show".
He recalled seeing Sebastian Stan, who plays the Winter Soldier, putting on his character's silver arm. "It was like I was watching somebody bathing," Rudd joked. "I was like, 'I'm not supposed to see this!' But I did. I went over there and felt the arm."
The "Wet Hot American Summer" star also got a chance to hold Captain America's shield. When Chris Evans who plays the Cap "had to run to the bathroom really quick" and "asked a prop guy to hold his shield," Rudd convinced the prop guy to let him hold the shield.
"I was running around with it like, 'Wow, it's heavier than I imagined!' " he went on sharing, "But you know, it's made of vibranium. Of course it's going to be heavy."
