Chris Evans Wants To Quit Acting


It’s been reported that Hollywood actor Chris Evans is to hang up his mask and shield and turn his back on Hollywood.

The Captain America star is under contract for at least three more appearances between Captain America and Avengers sequels but has told Variety he has no plans to continue acting after his obligation to the character ends.

“If I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing. I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.”

Evans instead says he wants to focus his attention behind the camera as that’s where he sees a future for himself.
“I’ve known for a while I wanted to direct, but [time] never really opens up. There’s another movie to do, there’s another acting job. It just got to point where I was like, you know what – I have to do this.”

While Chris thinks this is the career path he’d like to follow, he is still only 32 and who knows, if the right role came along, who’s to say he won’t be tempted to return to the big screen some time in the future.
