Hello! My name is Katie, I'm 25, and I live in the USA. I love Harry Potter (hence the URL). I like a TON of other stuff too. Just about everything really so yeah. I just graduated from university!! (I say just, it's been a year) and that's about all I can think of that's important at the moment.

"I watched a lot of documentaries on post-traumatic stress and a lot of army documentaries about the training programs and some of the extreme sort of circumstances that some of those guys that are training to be Navy SEALs and some who are a part of it go through. I was trying to understand what it is, what it means for someone to be desensitized, to no longer question hurting something. I did as much research on all that stuff as I could in order to kind of know what that was like. And then my stepdad actually has Alzheimer’s, so there were parts about watching and studying that kind of disease, also, observing people like that that kind of helped me a little bit.”SEBASTIAN STAN

"I learned at a very young age how fragile life is. When I was 15 years old I found out I had a brain tumor. The doctors said I had a very small chance that I could outlive it. The only alternative was to get on a long waiting list for open face surgery in hopes of removing it. I guess the first blessing happened on my 16th birthday, when the surgery was scheduled. I found out shortly after waking from the surgery that they went into the palette of the roof of my mouth instead of opening up my entire face. I guess you could say that was the second blessing. But the real blessing was that I overcame it completely and I survived something that most people never live through. I was close to death and I escaped it, and now I celebrate life because of it. 

I wanted to be free. After this literal escape from death, I had some challenges at home and left at a very young age to spend my teenage years literally on the streets. I started with a hitchhiking tour all through Canada. Essentially I was homeless, sleeping on rooftops and under bridges and free. I met tons of interesting people, and experienced life to the fullest. Surviving the death sentence of a brain tumor was like defying death. I felt like the walking dead. I wasn’t supposed to be here. The doctors had told me there was no hope. But here I was, alive and breathing and being so free to live my life. When you live on the streets, you really appreciate just being alive. On the streets, you don’t have first or last names. So they started to call me Zombie, a person who is living but so close to death.”

This was my conversation with Misha, this is what he told me. I don’t understand how you guys can hate him, just look at him. Thank you, Misha Collins.

Misha Collins everyone.

Not in your fandom, but this is lovely :)

Steven gave me the most amazing note, actually. He said, give me your war face, and the camera’s gonna move across. And as you feel it come up in front of you, I want you to de-age yourself by 20 years. So you’re 29, and then when you see those machine guns, you’re nine years old. I want to see the child in you. And I just thought that was one of the most astonishing acting notes I’d ever been given.

First look at Peter Dinklage in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’
If you’re wondering, he’s playing Bolivar Trask, a military scientist, creator of the Sentinals and a very anti-mutant politician. In the comics, he’s not a wee person, but fuck you, it’s Peter Dinklage. Dinklage can do whatever the fuck he wants.

If any nerds whine about this, you’ll be licking my elbow while I reach into your mouth to pull out your LUNGS

But fuck you, it’s Peter Dinklage, he can do whatever the fuck he wants.

I just want to point out something:
GIF #1: One of RDJ’s handlers brings down the umbrella to shield RDJ away from the fans’ view. Observe RDJ’s face just prior to that.

GIF #2: RDJ pushes the umbrella away and seems to say “I love you” (or something like that) to the fans.

I noticed it too. In the first picture he is smiling at the fans, and then the guy puts the umbrella in front of him and robert is like “Da fuck are you doing? Get out of the way! I’m trying to talk with my fans” 

God I love him so so so much, he’s a cutie

Awww, he’s so sweet!

Did you know: Chris Evans gets panic attacks. Yes, he does. This is one reason why he’s very private and didn’t really do any meet-and-greets on the Avengers’ sets.

It amazes and inspired me that a man who does what he does can do it, even with an anxiety disorder. You go, Chris.

This is why I get so upset when I hear negative comments about Chris and how he doesn’t seem as out-going as the rest of the Avengers cast. I remember hearing people complain about how he’s ‘rude’ and the like and it’s sad, because I highly doubt he intends to come off that way, he’s just more reserved than the others.

I remember hearing once that he actually went to seek psychiatric help before accepting the role of Captain America because of how anxious he felt regarding it. As well as the fact that he already played another Marvel superhero and he was concerned how comic fans would react to his playing another hero in that universe.

Just because someone’s in the entertainment industry doesn’t mean they’re going to be incredibly outgoing off camera just as much as they appear to be on camera. Some people just really enjoy acting; they’re not the characters they portray nor are they like their costars nor are they going to be incredibly outgoing because of their choice of career.

Now I’m really starting to root for this guy. Because, well. I kind of get the point more accurately than I wish I did.

Yeah, he’s described a few instances where his anxiety has gotten him. Failed auditions, bad experiences at panels or on the carpet, interviews fallen apart because he fixates on something. One of the reasons why he’s my favorite of the Avengers cast is because empathy.   

Aw man. Just went up in my cool book for doing what he does while still coping with an issue like that.

Being another Chris that deals anxiety in filmmaking, I can say even from my minor experiences it’s unforgettably scary and rough to be on a set with a ton of people you have to be awesome to (or your career’s toast) and yet inside you can’t stop the feeling.

Kudos to this guy.
