Captain America Star Hayley Atwell is Hooked on The Sims

Actress Hayley Atwell may not be wielding Captain America’s shield in director Joe Johnston’s The First Avenger, but she’s certainly stealing the superhero’s thunder. Atwell plays Peggy Carter in the World War II-era origin story of Stan Lee’s Marvel comic book, opposite Chris Evans. And gamers can get more of her in Sega’s Captain America: Super Soldier video game. Atwell goes virtual for the first time in the cross-platform game. The English actress, who’s the biggest gamer in the cast, talks about how she’s been hooked on video games since the early days of Sega’s Mega Drive and Game Gear in this exclusive interview.

I guess their handlers tell them to say things like this to expand their geeky fanbase. It worked for Olivia Munn.

Don't forget that publishers will pay a pretty penny to expand brand recognition. And people pay attention to celebrities.

And these "[insert actor/actress] is addicted to [insert game, system, facebook, etc]" articles are becoming a dime a dozen.

Ever watch "Thank you for Smoking"? Two-face (don't know his real name) was totally right about needing to get cigarettes back into the movies, in the mouths of celebrities.

Oh god, another pretty actress?? This just gets better and better.

I'd give her something she would get hooked on.

No offense, but do we really need an article every time an attractive chick says she plays video games?

SilentNegotiator2400d ago

They give sites an excuse to write an article, dorky immature people something to say "ZOMG that's awezom!!" to, and publishers a chance to succeed at exactly what they're trying to do.

The only losers are the people trying to find actual VG news.

Pretty? Hot? Women? Actresses? Videogames? What's not to get? Keep these articles coming!

I agree who cares if they like games? Join the club it's one of the largest in the world

oh really? thats nice, my fiance plays ps3,360, psp and pc games, and shes hot, why doesnt she get a tv spot? :P

people play videogames now, its not viewed as a childs activity anymore because those children have grown, Videogames are a popular media so why is it so shocking now when someone famous or a female plays videogames? thats like it being shocking that someone listens to music, i mean get real
