The cast of The Avengers reads like our dream dinner party guest list. From Robert Downey Jr. and Jeremy Renner to Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth, the whole crew seems like the coolest (and sexiest!) gang that a person could ask for. And according to costar Cobie Smulders, they’re super fun, too! The lovely Ms. Smulders caught up with VH1 News at The Avengers premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, and she insisted that the cast got along together great both onscreen and off.
“It was really cool. It could have been a disastrous movie,” she admitted. “It was huge actors, huge characters, and I think it all comes back to Joss Whedon who wrote such an amazing script and it gave everybody their moment, you know.” But although they worked hard, Cobie says that they definitely made time to party hard as well. “I mean, we were in Albuquerque for awhile. There were a few nights, wild nights. Which I can’t really remember. But um, but it was a lot of fun. Everyone was super cool.” Damn, it makes us wish we’d been cast!
Even though she’s got a major role in one of the biggest superhero franchises of our time, Cobie admits that she wasn’t born a comic book enthusiast. In fact, she didn’t get into the series until recently. “I got into it later in life. My fiancé is a huge comic book guy and so I learned a lot of Avengers, about Avengers from him. But going into this movie, I didn’t know much about shields or Maria Hill, who I play in the movie, her involvement at all.” Watch the video clip for more!
