You seem really comfortable in your own skin. Were you always that way?
No. I came here from Romania when I was 12 years old. I had an accent. High school was tough a little bit for a few years. I wanted to fit in. I wanted to be liked. I wanted to be good-looking. I wanted to be popular. I spent a lot of time thinking, “What are these people going to think of me?” but I think part of developing a strong sense of self is that you have to kind start to trust in yourself.
Do you have any other advice you’d give your 17-year-old self?
Embrace your differences and the qualities about you that you think are weird. Eventually they’re going to be the only things separating you from everyone else.

Imagine after Bucky joins the Avengers the guys are telling him about all the missions they’ve gone on and they’re casually mentioning all the times Steve’s almost killed himself and Bucky keeps glaring at him like,

"you jumped out of a plane? With no parachute?”

"you crashed your plane in the middle of the ocean?”

"you were going to fight a GOD?!"

and the rest of the avengers just have to sit there listening to Bucky shouting at Steve, for like an hour.
