Mix Robert Downey Jr. with Scarlett Johnansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Chris Hemsworth on the same set ... and you know there's going to be some crazy stories!
The cast of "The Avengers" recently attended a press conference for the upcoming superhero-movie-on-steroids in L.A., where they spoke candidly about their mishaps and wild moments both on and off the screen.
On their favorite off set moments ...
Hemsworth: Tom [Hiddleston, who plays the evil Loki] loves hugs. Group hugs! Chris [Evans] also sent us texts saying "Avengers assemble at such and such bar at 9:00 on Saturday night." That was a good group effort. We paid for it at work the next couple of days!
Downey Jr.: Ruffalo, weren't you the one throwing the roof parties?
Ruffalo: Yeah, that was me.
Downey Jr.: You were the group instigator of hugs there.
Ruffalo: I was the lead hugger! I remember coming into someone's place with a group of half naked stunt men in a hot tub and Scarlett Johansson's standing over them with a giant ladle making "boy soup."
Tom Hiddleston also revealed the gang played a lot of "Dance Dance Revolution" at Jeremy Renner's home.
Hiddleston: Scarlett and I would always have "Billie Jean"
Renner: Nobody lambadas like Loki!
While it sounds like they enjoyed some wild nights, it was strictly professional on set.
Hemsworth: I keep getting asked who was the biggest diva, who's rotten. This is the first time I've worked with these guys, we all are either that well behaved or we all kept each other in check, no one wanted to be the one screwing up.
Despite the professionalism, Hemsworth and Renner still had some accidents on set during filming.
Hemsworth: I had one [accident]... I was on a wire, because i haven't learned to fly yet, and I had to come down and land on a cliff. First couple of takes, and this is going to turn up on the DVD extras somewhere, I just faceplanted into the dirt. Incredibly ungraceful and un-superhero like.
Renner: You get injured everyday, when it's hand to hand stuff. Scarlett and I, we beat each other up pretty good. It was fun, I loved getting beat up by Scarlett, wouldn't you?
Check back later today to hear more from Mark Ruffalo and what it was like joining the team as The Hulk!
