Scarlett Johansson bonded with Chris Evans, who is a "great storyteller", when they weren't needed for scenes during 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' shoots.

Scarlett Johansson bonded with Chris Evans over his "down and dirty" stories on set.

The 29-year-old actress stars as the Black Widow alongside the Hollywood hunk who plays the titular superhero in 'Captain America: The Winter Solider', and she enjoyed quizzing him on personal tales since he's a "great storyteller" when they had time to spare during shoots.

Talking on the Radio 1 'Breakfast Show' to Nick Grimshaw, she said: "If you're waiting for a bridge to explode [on set] .. guess Chris and I usually... Chris is a great storyteller. I wanna get the down and dirty stories - tell me about all your friends in Boston, what's the most disgusting thing you've ever seen in person - you know that kind of stuff."

Grimshaw asked: "What is the most disgusting thing he's seen in person?"

She replied: "I can't say that on this radio show, it's too early in the morning for that."

Although Johansson remained coy about Evans' stories she admits the time between shoots often got "tedious".

She said: "At times it is [intense]... a lot of these huge sequences take four to five days, or sometimes two weeks to shoot. For instance, all the stuff that we do on the overpass when the Winter Solider is finally revealed to us, that stuff took a couple of weeks, then they had to close a couple of freeways. A lot of it is waiting around for things to be re-set up and explosion to be handled properly. So it can be a bit tedious."
