Actor Chris Evans has spoken… He’s ready to take abreak from acting.
Wait, what? Don’t worry, he won’t stop being our lovely Steve Rogers… Read the interview below to know more!
The 32-year-old actor will soon be seen bringing Captain America back to screens in the latest release in the franchise The Winter Soldier. The character also appears in the upcoming ensemble Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Much as Chris enjoys the role, he is ready to turn his hand to directing having helmed 1:30 Train, about a woman who is robbed in New York City. “I think when I’m done with this Marvel contract, I’ll take a little break from acting,” he told British magazine Glamour.
“With acting, you’re one piece in a very big puzzle. It’s like you helped buy a gift but you don’t know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it’s nice, sometimesit’s tragic. This process [directing], you’re involved in every single decision.”
Chris has been open about his struggle when it came to Captain America. He wasn’t sure he was right for the role and initially turned it down a few times. The star eventually decided to give it a go and hasn’t looked back. “If I hadn’t done it, I’d be really kicking myself. At the time, it was a daunting task for a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move,” he explained.
“He [Captain America] doesn’t have demons. He’s not Batman, he doesn’t struggle with inner turmoil. The nature of this character is that he puts himself last and helps the common good. So he could easily slip into a world of boredom,” Chris explained.
“The blessing and curse of Captain America is that he doesn’t have that fancy an ability. He doesn’t live in another world, or turn green. He doesn’t have bells and whistles, he doesn’t shoot missiles. He punches and kicks.”
