Chris Evans made some pretty douchey comments recently about how he always wanted to direct but since he can’t, well, he guesses he HAS to just go make millions on acting. However, he insisted he’d only take part in Marvel movies and other than that, no dice.
Boo hoo, right? Well, turns out, that’s not what he actually meant by that and you’re all getting your panties in a twist over nothing, as he explained (sorta?) on Good Morning America this week:
“[Suddenly I’m] retiring, hanging up the shoes, I guess! By no means am I planning on retiring. It’s kind of a silly statement.”
Well, yeah, it is a silly statement, but when you chunter on about all the movies you don’t wanna do and how you refuse to do this that and the other and you really want to be doing something else, people are going to read into that. You’ve been in this Hollywood game long enough, dude. You know better.
I’m not what you would call a “Chris Evans fan”, so I couldn’t really care less whether he retires or not. But ladies (and gents) who do like him, this should make you happy!
