It's hard to believe that Chris Evans was a late bloomer.
The single, attractive Avengers actor, 30, tells the May issue of Playboy he was the antithesis of a ladies' man in his teen years. "Look at pictures of me growing up. It wasn't always the way it is now. It was a bumpy road for me," Evans says. "There were kids doing a lot more than I was in high school. I just wasn't there, I guess. I lost my virginity senior year. It happened one time and only one time."
The Boston-raised star "used to be in love with Sandra Bullock" at the time. "Sandy B. was my girl. I remember seeing Speed when I was in seventh grade and just thinking, 'That's her.'"
Bullock, 47, is exactly the kind of woman Evans is searching for. "I wish you could see some of the girls I have genuinely had crushes on in my life. They're not the girls you would assume," he says. "I like girls who are self-deprecating. I like girls who make fun of themselves. If you can't poke fun at yourself, what are you? I just want someone with a good soul. That's about it. The rest I'm really flexible on. I like a good ass, though. I will say that."
Evans also opens up about his three-time costar Scarlett Johansson, 27. (In addition to 2012's The Avengers, they costarred in 2004's The Perfect Score and 2007's The Nanny Diaries.)
"She's like my sister," the actor tells Playboy. "I've known her for 10 years. She's just one of the smartest people I know. It's great when someone with a razor-sharp intellect wants to have fun. A lot of my buddies who like to have fun are a little lowbrow, and that's fun, but you can laugh at only so many farts."
