“It’s not that I don’t Like hanging out with him anymore,” the Scarlet Witch actress said. “I was doing it in the more LA way. I don’t, like, still hang out with him. I was doing it more as a Valley kid.”

Olsen and Evans first shared the big screen in 2015’s Avengers: Age of UltronThe Marvel movie in which Wanda Maximoff (the future Scarlet Witch) was introduced to the world as a Californian. They went on to star as stars in Captain America Civil War,Avengers: Infinity WarAnd Avengers: Endgame.

Evans, who is currently Captain America/Steve Rogers in the 2019 flick has spent a lot more time at home in Boston than Olsen, while Olsen is based in Los Angeles.

When Vanity Fair asked if they stopped hanging out because of Evans’ tap dancing skills, Olsen assured the outlet that she loved his fancy footwork. “No, that’s one of the things I like about him,” she said.

She continued, “Oh, I’ve seen him tap dance. He taps a lot on set.”

I can’t say I’m a tap dancer, but that’s what Lizzie is putting out there. Alright, I’ll take it. Why not? It makes me look cool, right?”
