Revenge star Emily VanCamp doesn't understand the level of interest in her personal life saying it must get boring.

The Canadian actress, who is dating her on-screen husband Josh Bowman, told the New York Daily News, "There's this bizarre fascination with following love lives.

"Pretty much all you see [in the photos] is me at work, me at the grocery store, me occasionally at a restaurant. I mean, at what point does that become boring?"

The 27-year-old star also revealed that she was a little starstruck by Robert Redford when filming Captain America: Winter Soldier, "It probably wouldn't have intimidating if it had just been a scene with Chris Evans or any of the other actors, but for the first scene to be with Robert Redford? I remember he just came and sat down, and we just started talking about anything and everything. Here you are, sitting with this icon, and here you are sitting and shooting the s***."

VanCamp plays S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter in the film, an agent tasked with guarding and protecting Captain America without his knowledge.

Captain America: Winter Soldier is in cinemas now and you can see VanCamp in Revenge on RTÉ Two, Tuesdays at 9pm.
