"But I'm fine with it," Evans added. "I don't consider myself that way. Many actors are saddled with raging insecurity and I am no exception. I'm drowning in it."

Evans added that he feels a certain kinship with Hemsworth, 27, who was thrust into the spotlight when Thor debuted at No. 1 in May.

"Hemsworth and I are definitely in uncharted waters, but it's great that we have one another," Evans told Us. "I can't say enough about Downey. He's been so great. He's so positive and so available, and I didn't know what to expect. He's so experienced."

According to Evans, his first day on The Avengers set was awe-inspiring. "Seeing the Iron Man suit, because I love the Iron Man movies, was so cool," he said. "And Hemsworth -- have you seen him? He's huge! He puts the cape on and the wig and its like, 'Jeez!' The guy's the f**king god of Thunder."

Captain America: The First Avenger is in theaters now.
