He may be a part of one of the biggest action films of the year, but “The Avengers” star Chris Evans said he had his doubts about acting.
The Boston native still lives in his hometown with his roomate and speaks of his dream to live in the woods to Details magazine for the May cover story.
“For a long time all I wanted for Christmas were books about outdoor survival. I was convinced that the woods were calling me. I camped a lot, I took classes. At 18, I told myself if I don’t live in the woods by myself by the time I’m 25, I have failed,” he said.
The actor also says his “daytime person is different than my nightttime person. With my high-school buddies, we drink beer and talk sports and it’s great. The kids in my Buddhism class in L.A., they’re wildly intelligent, and I love being around them, but they’re not talking about the Celtics.”
The actor seems to have a certain dislike for Hollywood, saying he refuses to let his happiness be defined in terms of his acting.
“I love acting. It’s my playground, it lets me explore. But my happiness in this world, my level of peace, is never going to be dictated by acting,” he says.
He adds that the idea of it even made him question whether or not he wanted to accept the role of Captain America.
“What if the movie comes out and it’s a success and I just reject all of this? What if I want to move to the fu*&#@^ woods?”
