Don’t worry, Captain America isn’t going anywhere.
Last week, “Avengers” star Chris Evans reportedly told Variety that he’s planning to retire from acting.
“I’ve known for a while I wanted to direct,” Evans told Variety. “But [time] never really opens up. There’s another movie to do, there’s another acting job. It just got to a point where I was like, you know what — I have to do this.”
Today, Evans clarified what he meant.
“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,” he said on “Good Morning America.”
He continued, sarcastically, “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 “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” star added that his real life super heroes were “my parents.”
“My parents had four of us and it wasn’t easy,” he said. “They did a pretty good job in my opinion.”
