Chris Evans reveals that he's no longer interested in acting and starring in movies.
Even though the world knows Chris Evans as Captain America, the Avenger revealed that he's not that interested in acting anymore as much as he is interested in making his own movies. He's already said that he expects his role in the next Avengers
movie would be his fifth and sixth time playing Captain America in a lead role and it will fulfill his contract with Marvel Studios. And it will also be his final blockbuster movie roles, which might not have been the case if he signed the original contract that Marvel offered him, which was for nine movies. He tells Rolling Stone
, “It’s nuts. If you make a big movie likeIndependence Day,
they’ll lock you up for three movies. But nine is insane. We got it down to six.”

Part of the reason why he didn't want to sign up for nine movies as Captain America was the fact the had to promote the movie on top of acting. He points out, “This is the most outside asks you can incorporate into a movie. I love acting – but that’s not all you’re asking me to do… It’s nice to talk about the work with people who are interested – but I freak out when I hear stupid questions about stupid things, and you’ve gotta act like you give a fuck. It’s part of the job, I’ve got to sell this thing. But it’s just a gross feeling. It makes me insecure.”

He tells Rolling Stone
that acting serves as a release for him, explaining, “The noise goes away. You’re just leaned into the experience. You’re really riding the wave of just living.”
