There was big apprehension on my part whether or not to do the movie [Captain America]. It was a six-picture deal and the problem is, if one of these pictures is a big success and it changes your life, you may not cope with it as well as you expected. There certainly was some fear involved initially. But then you just think, ‘If that’s what I’m scared of, maybe that’s exactly what I should do’, and, in retrospect, God, I’d be kicking myself if I hadn’t done it.
I adore the way he just FEELS everything so completely. He’s so in the moment, even when that moment is happening in the somewhat ridiculous, artificial context of an interview.
(Also, that one second down on the right? Good Morning America surprised him by bringing him pies from his favorite Boston-area pizza place to their studio in NYC. The guy who can inspire a move like that is damn special. New Yorkers take their pizza very seriously.)
I need a 500 pack of these
Oh, shit. These are awesome!!
I’ll take 1,000.
I feel like these might actually come in handy at some point…
When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You appreciate it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You’re too this, or I’m too this.’ That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.
I’m actually working on a fic for once, but it’s super angsty, so it probably wouldn’t be much help in the cheering up department. Sorry. :(
You gonna post it on AO3?
If I can wrangle it into completion, yeah. It’s requiring me to rewatch several recent episodes of Arrow for canon/continuity reasons, which is slightly slowing down the outpouring of feels, but maybe by this weekend.
