Hayley Atwell - Hayley Atwell Had To 'Grope' Captain America

Hayley Atwell had to have a "bit of a grope" of Chris Evans when they shot 'Captain America: The First Avenger' to make sure his muscles were real.

The 29-year-old actress - who plays Peggy Carter in the movie opposite Chris as the titular superhero - was so shocked by the 30-year-old hunk's six-pack that she felt it was "her duty" as a woman to check it out.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "When I touched his man chest it was literally just an impulse for me that I had and I needed to touch it to make sure it was real. I had to have a bit of a grope for all the other ladies watching, I felt like it was my duty."

The brunette beauty saw Chris' rock hard chest for the first time while filming a scene whereby her alter-ego has to brush her hand across his nipple - and she was stunned at how toned his pectoral muscles were.

She added: "The first time I'd actually seen Chris Evans' body is when he comes out of the pod in the film. I don't know if that was intentional but it was certainly helpful for me because you just don't think someone's body can actually be that way. But his was."

'Captain America: The First Avenger' is available on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Triple Play and DVD on Monday December 5.
