Chris Evans has had enough of being a super hero….. for now. According to The Huffington Post, the 32-year old actor told Glamour magazine that he is planning to take a break from the business. Evans has been playing Captain America for Marvel since 2011. He first picked up the role in the 2011 movie Captain America: The First Avenger. He then went on to star in The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World. His final effort as the character, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will hit theaters on April 4.
Evans told the magazine, “I think when I’m done with this Marvel contract, I’ll take a little break from acting,” Evans, who stars as Captain America in Marvel’s films, told the publication. “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, sometimes it’s tragic.”
He also voiced his concerns about the lifestyle changes that were required over the past four years playing the role. If you read the interview it seems like Evans would like to kind of fade away so he’s not going to be type-cast as Captain America for the rest of his career. He chose some peculiar words about the movies fading away. Enjoy the break, it’s well-deserved.
