Kristen Stewart and Anthony Mackie are feeling the love at TIFF 2019 — for Chris Evans, that is.
The actors sat down for an interview on Saturday at the IMDb Studio in Toronto to talk about their new project, “Seberg.” The film, which is screening at TIFF, is a political thriller that focuses on the FBI’s surveillance of “Breathless” actress Jean Seberg because of her association with activist Hakim Jamal, a cousin of Malcolm X.
“Seberg” director Benedict Andrews also joined Stewart and Mackie for the interview, which was led by IMDb’s Dave Karger.
While discussing other projects the actors have coming up, Karger asked Mackie what he considers to be the best part of doing an ‘Avengers’ movie without Chris Evans.
“You get to sleep,” Mackie replied with a laugh. “You get a lot of down time.”
Turning more serious, he added, “There is no good part about it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a thousand times. Chris is one of my closest friends and when the three of us [Evans, Mackie and Sebastian Stan] get together, it’s hell and anarchy. Hopefully we’ll be able to have him around to cause some trouble on set.”
But before Karger could move on to another subject, Stewart was quick to add, “I love him too!”
