Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes

chris-evans-variety-coverChris Evans reveals he’s ready to quit acting in the new issue of Variety.

The Captain America: The Winter Soldier star tells the magazine, “I’ve known for a while I wanted to direct. 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.”

Evans recently finished his directorial debut, 1:30 Train, but still is under contract for three more Marvel movies.

The actor shares, “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,” adds Evans.

What do you think of Evans saying he’s retiring from acting?
