Chris Evans, well known as Captain America, has hinted at retirement from acting. In a new interview with GQ, the actor admitted that he has yet to film a single day in 2023 and has no plans to do so anytime soon. When asked if he would return for another Marvel film, Chris replied he would love to, but that he would ‘just maybe act a little bit less’ in the future.
In an interview with GQ, when Chris was asked whether he would ever go back to Marvel, he said, “Yeah, maybe. I’ll never say never, just because it was such a wonderful experience. But I’m also very precious with it. It’s something that I am very proud of. And like I said, sometimes I can’t believe it even happened. And I wouldn’t want the black eye if it felt like a cash grab or if it didn’t live up to expectations or if it just felt like it wasn’t connected to that original thing. So, no time soon. And ultimately I really hope to just maybe act a little bit less in my life. I have a lot of other interests. Look, by no means have I climbed any sort of a mountain in this field. I have no Oscars and I’m not lumped with other names that are at the top of the mountain in any way. But I also feel very satisfied.”
In the same interview, Chris also opened up about his relationship with Alba Bapista and shared how he has not been to a film set in this year. “I haven’t worked all year and I don’t plan to, which has been lovely. My girlfriend that I’ve had for a while, when we began dating. I was like: ‘Yeah, I do one movie a year. I try to never work now.’ And then, after like a few months of dating, boom, guess what? We’re living in Atlanta for a year. Get ready. And even when that year was happening, I was like, man, never again.”
Chris Evans married Alba Bapista in a private ceremony earlier this month. Among those in attendance were his Marvel co-stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, and Jeremy Renner. He was most recently seen in Netflix’s Pain Hustlers.
