Chris Evans may have said he was retiring in a recent interview with Variety, but he is now backtracking on that statement. Evan sat down with GMA this morning and revealed that he does want to direct, but he has no plans to retire just yet! “I said that I directed last year. I really responded to it. I really enjoyed it. I’d love to focus a little bit more on that. By no means am I planning on retiring. It’s kind of a silly statement. But I certainly am going to try to focus a bit more on directing at this point.”
Well there you have it! But Evans did make it sound like he was going to ditch acting, “If I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing. I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.” he really had to clean up his statements!
