Ant-Man and the Wasp’s Evangeline Lilly calls out male Marvel co-stars for whining about wearing costumes

Chris Evans, Chadwick Boseman, and Paul Bettany are just some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe stars who have said that their superhero costumes are uncomfortable to wear.

But Ant-Man and the Wasp star Evangeline Lilly has brilliantly called out her male co-stars by explaining the real reason why they’ve been complaining.

The actress, who plays Hope van Dyne aka the Wasp in this summer’s Marvel blockbuster, said that she didn’t find suiting up in her own costume that bad and pointed out a key difference between a man and a woman having to cope with wearing something uncomfortable.

“I have been hearing Marvel male superheroes complaining about their suits for years,” she told BackstageOL. “And I got into my suit, and I was wearing it, working in it, doing my thing, and I was like, ‘It’s just not that bad’.

“Do I have the most comfortable suit in the MCU? Or, have men not had the life experience of being uncomfortable for the sake of looking good, and they’re just like, ‘What is this? This sucks! Why? Why do I have to go through this?’, whereas a woman’s like, ‘I don’t know, it’s normal’.

“I wear heels to work, and I’m uncomfortable all day. You get used to it. You just tune it out.”

Shape USA Magazine

Evangeline appears on the cover of Shape USA Magazine July issue with a wonderful new photoshoot by Max Abadian. She talked to the magazine about her new movie “Ant-Man and The Wasp” and about everything she’s doing, among other things.

When Evangeline Lilly was 20 years old and juggling two jobs to make ends meet, she totaled her car. With no money to replace it and no way to get to work, she entered a bikini contest; first prize was a one-year lease on a pickup truck. The contest was in just two weeks. She had never modeled and considered herself a serious young woman (she studied political science and international relations at the University of British Columbia) and had no clue what was in store. “But I figured that if I was going to do this, I had better win,” she says. So she hit the gym “like a maniac,” self-tanned her alabaster skin into a deep golden tone, subsisted on protein shakes and egg whites—and triumphed. Though she returned to her studies, jobs, and healthy (meaning more sane) eating and exercise habits, to this day she’s not averse to pushing the limits of her body and mind.

“If I had gone on like that for another two years, just imagine how I might have transformed,” Evangeline says.“I could have turned into Spider-Man.” Almost. Currently starring as the Wasp in Ant-Man and the Wasp, she has again whittled herself into superhero shape with a self-designed regimen that includes sprint workouts and sensible eating. But she wants you to know one thing: “I’m wearing a corset! People don’t look like that.”
