Chris Evans Busts his Retirement Plans
It was only last week when the Hollywood hottie Chris Evans turned from being a hunky heartthrob
to a heartless heartbreaker. Almost all the major tabloids published the news of his retirement from
acting after the completion of “Captain America” trilogy. Turns out, it was just a rumor as the truth was
recently unveiled by none other than the super soldier himself.
Evans is currently quiet active promoting the release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”. The
rumor of his retirement actually started from his recent interview with Glamour. During his interview,
Chris revealed his plans to, and we quote, ‘take a break from acting.’ He added that the said break
would follow the release of his last film under the Marvel’s six films contract. That was not the only time
Chris mentioned his break plans. Only a few days later, he confirmed the news during his interview with
Variety. And the news was everywhere, but unfortunately, with a version further from the truth!
Many mistook the meaning of ‘break’ for complete retirement citing that the actor will either leave the
industry or go behind the camera to take up the director’s chair. That is when Captain America jumped
into action before America started to lose hope. “By no means am I planning on retiring,” Chris told ABC
News as he debunked all the myths surrounding his future in the Tinstletown.
“I said I directed last year and I really responded to it, I really enjoyed it and I’d love to focus a little more
on that,” Evans responds to a question about the rumors. “Then [I’m] retiring, hanging up the shoes I
guess. By no means am I planning on retiring. It’s kind of a silly statement.”
The question now boggling most minds is ‘What is the directorial project Evans talks of?’ Only a few
people know that Evans already tried the director’s chair and it seems that he found it quite cozy.
His directorial debut ‘1:30 Train’ is a micro budget romantic movie in which he also acts along Alice
Eve. ‘1:30 Train’ is all set for release in August, and the actor/directors seems to have pretty high hopes
for the movie.
However, there is no denying the fact that Evans’ current focus is completely directed towards “Captain
America: The Winter Soldier” that just hit the theatres across the world.
