'Knives Out' Director Reveals Scene He Felt Awful Making Chris Evans Film

Don't be fooled by the glitz and glamour of Hollywood; acting isn't always easy!

Knives Out director Rian Johnson just revealed the one scene he felt awful making Chris Evans film in the movie.

What it is will totally surprise you.

In case you haven't seen the film, "Knives Out" before, you really need to.


The highly-rated film, which scored $300 million at the box office worldwide, is a laugh-out-loud mystery-comedy that features a star-studded cast.

This includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, and Chris Evans.

James Bond: No Time To Die newcomer, Ana de Armas, stars in the film as well, alongside Bond himself, Daniel Craig.

While no film could parallel the success of the Korean thriller, "Parasite," "Knives Out" did manage to nab some awards.

Writer/director Rian Johnson was nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars and Ana de Armas and Daniel Craig took home a Golden Globe for Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively.

Fans may have also noticed that Chris Evans is in the modern whodunnit film.


How could they not? He's simply gorgeous.

He played Random Drysdale, the rich and entitled grandson who wore a *lot* of cable-knit sweaters.

It was a far cry from him everyone's favorite Marvel hero, Captain America.

Recently, director Johnson revealed that Chris may not have had the easiest time on set.

While rewatching a scene from the film with Cinema Blend, he pointed something out.

"Yum, look at those cookies," Rian said. "Delicious. These are those Belgium cookies right here and actually when we screened the movie at the Gent Film Festival in Belgium everyone was so excited that we had these cookies in there. They were like, ‘Belgium cookies!’"

"They’re very buttery and I picked them just because they looked cool."

Ransom ate a lot of them during his first major scene in the film.


This, however, is something that Rian now feels bad about.

"Then, poor Chris, anytime you see an actor eating food in a scene pity that actor because they’ve had to eat that food all day long."

"These cookies, you eat like two of them, and you feel like your throat is coated in butter. Chris was pounding these all day long. So, I feel very bad for him."

Who said acting was easy?

Thankfully, Chris did have a lot of milk to drown those cookies down with.

In a previous interview, he explained why Chris eating milk and cookies fit his character so well.

It started when he walked in the door during his first key scene, started chewing on the butter cookies, and asked the housekeeper if she could get him a cold glass of milk.


"That just kind of feels right," Johnson said on the Reel Blend podcast.

"And also it’s kind of infantile, and there’s something annoying about people drinking milk. And asking someone else for a cold glass."


He continued: "It’s almost like you’d ask your mom for a cold glass of milk. Because at that moment his bursts in and he’s been set up as this infantile child, basically."

"So the notion that he’s eating cookies and milk just seemed to me that that would just hit, would tag that base of... He’s just kind of a brat."

For those who want more of "Knives Out" Johnson revealed that he's already working on a sequel!

The only returning character will be Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc as he solves another mystery.


This is probably good news for Evans so he can stay far, far away from those damn butter tarts!

Knives Out is currently available on digital, Blu-ray, and DVD.

Sadly, though, Evans won't be in it since there will be an all-new cast.

He'll be busy anyway, as he's currently reportedly in talks to star in a new horror movie Little Shop of Horrors remake.

In it, he'd play sadistic dentist Orin Scrivello, DDS.
