He may be known for his shiny indestructible shield and star-spangled superhero get-up, but Chris Evans reckons Captain America may never have seen any bedroom action.

Evans, who plays the noble character, raised the idea that Steve Rogers may still be a virgin in a recent interview to promote Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“It’s funny when you think about it – he’s probably a virgin,” the actor told Entertainment Weekly when asked if Cap wants a love interest. “He’s probably a virgin! I don’t know when it would’ve happened.”

There was, however, that USO tour in Captain America: The First Avenger. Surely a one-night stand could have spiced things up a bit for him then?

“He was on tour. That’s true. Maybe one of those girls blew his mind,” he laughed. “He’s probably just a good guy. He was probably holding out for Peggy Carter and he’s a little more old-fashioned in that sense.

“These are a lot of things that I think are giant conflicts, but they’re also very personal conflicts. He’s a very human guy. That’s why I like him.”

Evans came under fire last week after joking with co-star Jeremy Renner that Scarlett Johansson’s awesome Black Widow was a “complete w***e”.

Both actors apologised after criticism for slut-shaming, with Evans admitting that he answered the Digital Spy journalist’s questions in a “very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans”.

“I regret it and sincerely apologise,” he said, with Renner also apologising for the “tasteless joke”.

Avengers: Age of Ultron was released last Thursday and scored the highest UK opening of 2015 so far, grossing a massive £18 million over the weekend.

The sequels’ opening is the best since James Bond movie Skyfall took £20.1 million in 2012 and beats both Fast & Furious 7 and storming S&M success Fifty Shades of Grey.
