“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” star Chloe Bennet appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday (Jan. 20), and the charming chat between the pair hit on everything from him being one of her celebrity crushes to her time as a pop star in China.
“He just kind of saw a low-cut shirt, I think, and just went in to kiss me, and a split second in my mind I was like, ‘OK, you’ve got to make a decision’ — he’s going for my mouth.
