"I used to be in love with Sandra Bullock when I was grwoing up... I remember watching Speed when I was in seventh grade and just thinking, 'That's her!' I can't say that I know her but from what I've heard, she's fantastic." Actor Chris Evans on his longtime crush.
The former chat show host eloped with jewellery designer Christian Evans on Easter Sunday (08Apr12) and wed in a beachside ceremony in California, with just the couple's dogs in attendance.
The Hairspray star's boys, Milo, 15, and Owen, 10, from her previous marriage to artist Rob Sussman, chose not to attend the ceremony, and Lake admits the new stage of parenthood is a welcome change.
The 43 year old tells Celebuzz.com, "We are not gonna have more kids. We have made that decision.
"When you fall in love, the fantasy of making a baby and all that is definitely appealing. But I also love this phase of my life, where my children are 15 and almost 11.
"It's really nice to have some freedom to be able to go away and have a balance of a fun kind of life with your husband and also with growing children."
Lake and Sussman divorced in 2003 after 10 years of marriage.
The actor's mum is his biggest fan - and she refuses to stay silent when reporters and reviewers take aim at him in the press and online.
He tells Playboy magazine, "She's one of those moms. She gets a little up in arms.
"The Internet is a big place where a lot of people can voice their opinions, and my mother chooses to pick fights with random people from all over the world who don't have the nicest things to say about me."
"She's a beautiful lady. She really got blessed. I love that girl, man. She's like my sister. I've known her for 10 years (and) she's just one of the smartest people I know." Chris Evans on his Avengers co-star Scarlett Johansson.
The former chat show host wed for the second time on Easter Sunday (08Apr12) after eloping with Christian Evans, who she has been dating since August (11).
Lake has now revealed there were no guests at the beachside ceremony in California apart from the couple's pets, as her sons from her previous marriage decided not to attend.
She tells The View, "(My recent stint on) Dancing With the Stars was such an experience where I felt like I was a princess twice a week. I got to get all the attention and the accolades and I didn't need that on my wedding day. I really wanted it to be about us...
"It was Easter break. It was spring break and it was actually Easter Sunday and they (my sons) were with their father. We invited them, but I think they were more concerned with what cake they were missing versus the ceremony. We celebrated with them and they've always felt like he's (Evans) a stepfather to them anyways (sic) so they're really happy for us."
Lake, 43, was previously married to artist Rob Sussman, the father of her two sons Milo, 15, and Owen, 10. They divorced in 2003 after 10 years of marriage.
Profiles in History's Captain America: The First Avenger auction was a huge success with 217 of the 219 items snapped up for a total $1.1 million (£688,000).
Some of the highlights included the Captain America Hero Costume, which Chris Evans wore in advertising and promotional materials for the 2011 film, and the original full-scale screen-used Mark II Autopsy suit from Iron Man 2. The former went under the hammer for $228,000 (£142,500) and the latter for $132,000 (£82,500).
Evans refuses to say which role in the film he was up for, but he admits he knew it wouldn't be his, seconds into his audition.
He explains, "I got nervous. I walked in the room and I shook his (Affleck's) hand and I said, 'Am I gonna be OK where I parked?' and he was like, 'Where did you park?' I go, 'At the meter,' and he said, 'Did you put money in the meter?' and I said, 'Yeah,' and he was like, 'I think you'll be OK.'
"I was a trainwreck."
The Captain America star is one of Hollywood's hottest young actors, but read-throughs for studio bosses make him so nervous, he regularly leaves before the audition is finished.
He tells Details magazine, "Do you know how badly I audition? Fifty per cent of the time I have to walk out of the room. I'm naturally very pale, so I turn red and sweat. And I have to literally walk out. Sometimes mid-audition.
"You start having these conversations in your brain. 'Chris, don't do this. Chris, take it easy. You're just sitting in a room with a person saying some words. This isn't life. And you're letting this affect you? Shame on you.'"
The Hollywood hunk has reprised his role as Captain America for upcoming superhero movie The Avengers, following the financial success of his debut outing as the shield-wielding adventurer.
However, he is still coming to terms with starring in such a big box office hit following a series of under performing films.
He tells Hong Kong's Prestige magazine, "I'm surprised by any movie that is successful. At this point I've made a lot of films. I've made about 20 movies and I'm probably proud of three. I had already made quite a few stinkers. I couldn't afford to make another one, let alone another one on that scale. If you make one that big and it fails, your days are numbered.
"(But) not only was I extremely happy with how the film turned out, but it was such a fantastic working experience. Everything about it has been a positive. There has not been one negative."
Evan's past roles include The Losers, science fiction drama Sunshine and thriller Cellular.
The Hairspray star and former talk show host became engaged to jewellery designer Christian Evans last August (11) after a year of dating, and the couple decided to elope on Sunday (08Apr12) to exchange vows in southern California.
Lake broke the news to fans on Tuesday (10Apr12) by posting a photo of herself in her wedding dress, holding a bouquet of pink flowers, and writing, "Yup. This is me.... Sadie Sadie married lady... Love is in the air."
And she tells People.com, "It was a beautiful moment I will never forget. I wasn't anxious or nervous. I was really relaxed and excited."
The 43 year old divorced artist Rob Sussman, the father of her two sons Milo, 15, and Owen, 10, in 2003 after 10 years of marriage and she admits she had been losing hope of finding love again.
She says, "I didn't think it would happen at this point in my life. We just clicked. It just feels like he was the right one all along."
