Chris Evans Almost Rejected Captain America Role: “The Industry Was Unhealthy”

Star Chris Evans revealed in an interview with American “GQ” that his acting career is one of the topics in his life that he tends to rethink.

The actor moved from Los Angeles back to his home state of Massachusetts and has stated that acting is something he loves but could live without. Regarding his title role as “Captain America” in the Marvel films, the American revealed that he was hesitant to accept the proposal and revealed the reason.

“I was in my late 20s thinking a lot about how I felt on the recording sets, how I felt promoting the films: more anxiety, more uncertainty. You always ended up asking yourself: ‘Should I really be doing this?’”, he explained.

Additionally, Evans revealed that he believed the Hollywood industry was taking him away from his true self. “I wasn’t sure if I was going closer to myself or further away. Something inside me kept telling me away, that something in this industry was unhealthy,” he said.

Chris also said that he said a few “no’s” to Marvel before the definitive “yes” and that he negotiated a lot about the number of projects he would have to do with the company. The actor explained that he weighed the pros and cons, but that, at the end of it all, the predominant feeling is gratitude.

“The pros were that I would be able to take care of my family forever; the cons were that I would become deeply unhappy with the fame and loss of control”, revealed the star.

Chris Evans played Steve Rogers in seven Marvel films: 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”, 2012’s “The Avengers”, 2014’s “Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier”, 2014’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron ”, from 2015, “Captain America: Civil War”, from 2016, “Avengers: Infinity War”, from 2018 and “Avengers: Endgame”, from 2019.
