Captain America Chris Evans to take a break from acting
Actor Chris Evans is planning to take a break from acting after he is done playing a superhero in Captain America.
The 32-year-old actor, best known for his role in the Marvel's franchise, is slated to hit the silver screens this April with the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
"I think when I'm done with this Marvel contract, I'll take a little break from acting," Evans told Glamour UK.
"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 said.
But the superhero is keeping him busy these days. Evans reprised his role as Captain in 2012's The Avengers and also made a cameo in 2013's Thor: The Dark World. He is putting on his superhero dress again for 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron, co-starring Robert Downey, Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, James Spader and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
The actor is also hoping to go behind the camera. He starred in his directorial debut 1:30 Train in December 2013.
"You're involved in every single decision. If I hadn't done it, I'd be really kicking myself. At the time, it was a daunting task or a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move," he said about his debut.
