Chris Evans had one of the ''best years'' of his life in 1999 because he lost his virginity.

The 'Captain America: Civil War' actor had a carefree period after graduating early to focus on launching his acting career in Los Angeles, so before he moved away from his pals, he spent his days ''getting high'' and hanging out with his friends.

He said: ''I know I'm going to LA in August. So I go home and that spring I would wake up around noon, saunter into high school just to see my buddies, and we'd go get high in the parking lot. I just f***ed off. I lost my virginity that year. 1999 was one of the best years of my life.''

Chris has been vocal in his opposition to new US president Donald Trump, and though he has been warned his opinions may put off audiences from seeing his movie, he doesn't care about the consequences as it is more important for him to stand up for what he believes in.

He told the new issue of Esquire magazine: ''Look, I'm in a business where you've got to sell tickets.

''But, my God, I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror if I felt strongly about something and didn't speak up. I think it's about how you speak up. We're allowed to disagree.

''If I state my case and people don't want to go see my movies as a result, I'm OK with that.''

And the 'Gifted' star is still outraged that Hillary Clinton was defeated in the election, but doesn't think all voters truly realised what they were voting for in casting their support for Trump.

He said: ''I feel rage. I feel fury. It's unbelievable. People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame.

''They were just so happy to hear that someone was angry. Hear someone say that Washington sucks. They just want something new without actually understanding.
