'Avengers: Endgame' Stars Guess What Cast Member Was a Stripper Before an Avenger

The “Avengers: Endgame” cast has had a lot of time to get to know each other, but do they know which of their co-stars worked as a stripper before they were an Avenger?

“I want to say Chris Evans, but I don’t know,” Chris Hemsworth told Variety.

“Is it like Tom [Hiddleston]? He seems like a stripper to me,” guessed Jeremy Renner, who was the majority of his co-stars’ answers.

Scarlett Johansson explained why she thought the Hawkeye actor could have had a career as a stripper: “He’s got like a really good squat lunge that he does and I feel like that would work on stage.”

To the shock of the cast, “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt used to strip before he was an actor.

The stars sat down with Variety‘s Marc Malkin, and answered several more questions about one another, for the first episode of Variety and iHeartMedia’s new film podcast, “The Big Ticket.”
