Chris Evans' teenage puppy love

Chris Evans has found himself repeating the same line his three-year-old nephew often says.

The 33-year-old may be a big Hollywood star but that doesn't stop him from spending plenty of time at home with his family. With his female siblings still residing at the same house they grew up in, Chris sometimes feels as though he's gone back in time when visiting.

"I do spend a lot of time back in Massachusetts and my mother, my sister, my other sister and their families, they all still live in the same house that we grew up in," he explained to Jimmy Fallon. "So when I go home, I'm still in the same house I was studying for math tests in. Same bedroom. I mean I took some posters down... They were bad, we're not gonna do that, I'm not gonna do that. It wasn't even who [they were of], it was like a puppy and I was like, 'Ah that's cool.' I'm not joking, like a random surfer... Embarrassing stuff."

One of the highlights for Chris when going home is seeing his sister's kids, one of which is three-year-old Miles. The actor relishes spending time with the toddler and is particularly amused by the similarities between Miles and himself.

"My sister has three kids, and the middle kid Miles, he's three years old, he's very much like me. In the sense that he's very particular about what he likes, more appropriately what he doesn't like, which is everything," Chris added. "He says, 'I don't like it. I don't like it.' Well he has the same speech impediment that I do where the L's and the R's turn into W's. So it turns into, 'I don't wike it, I don't wike it.' And it's everything."

When Chris wrapped up Avengers: Age of Ultron, in which he reprises the role of superhero Captain America, last September he was able to unwind at home. But it wasn't long before the handsome star found himself picking up the saying, which host Jimmy pointed out by showing a clip from a recent interview in which Chris muttered: "I don't wike it."
