— Sebastian Stan’s response to Do you think Bucky almost wishes he was the one turned into a super soldier? (x)
"No, I don’t think so. I think he thinks it’s strange. Then again, the circumstances are weird. Bucky gets rescued by this new Steve. For all we know, Bucky is on an operating table thinking he might never come out. That he might never again see the light of day. So for him, every time he comes back from war, he’s like, “Here’s another chance to think whether it’s worth going back. I’m alive. I’m here for one night. I want to live life.” I don’t think it’s jealousy so much, but he doesn’t really have much of a choice because I think for him there’s an element of, “Okay I’m going to go fight and I will survive this one mission and then I’ll come back and I’ll not go back.” But the problem is that he has no choice because Steve’s going and he never lets Steve go by himself. So I think the protective nature of a parent or a brother was was always there. It wasn’t like, “Steve’s this muscle guy and I want to be him.” It’s more like, “Oh god—he’s grown up and what do I do?”"
