    Evangeline Lilly Basically Laughed When Told Her Male Co-Stars Find Their Superhero Suits "Uncomfortable"

    "Have men not had the life-experience of being uncomfortable for the sake of looking good?"

    Evangeline Lilly, beloved star of Ant-Man and the forthcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp films, recently sat down for an interview with BackstageOL to talk about her badass Marvel costume.


    "I love my suit, I think my suit is killer, I think my suit is so cool. I think it's powerful, modern, strong, sexy, and it made me feel like a superhero," she told the interviewer Dave Morales.

    But when told her co-star Paul Rudd (god, love him) kinda complained about being uncomfortable in his suit, Lilly went on to make a very good point about why women are a lot more chill than men when it comes to their superhero costumes:

    "I have been hearing Marvel male superheroes complain about their suits for years. And I got into my suit and I was wearing it, working in it, doing my thing and I was like, 'It's just not THAT I have the most comfortable suit in the MCU?'

    Lily continued to hammer her point home by lifting up her foot and saying, "OR...have men not had the life-experience of being uncomfortable for the sake of looking good?!"

    She continued, "They're just like, 'What is this? this sucks! Why are we...why? Why do I have to go through this?' Whereas a woman's like, 'I don't know, this is normal. You know, I wear heels to work, I'm uncomfortable, you get used to it. You tune it out."

    Of course, fans are now LOVING Lilly's snippet.

    And some are even hard-relating to her statement, too.

    @emilybluntz There is something to this. Sometimes I get really bad acid reflex at night. I do my best. My dad gets acid reflux one time, he goes to the ER

    Take note, Marvel men: "just tune it out!"
