Chris Evans won't quit acting soon

Los Angeles - Chris Evans insists he won't quit acting anytime soon.

The Captian America: The Winter Soldier star, who recently stated he wouldn't be taking on any more acting roles aside from the Marvel commitments that he is contractually bound to, feels "silly" for suggesting he was no longer interested in being in front of the camera and was eager to focus on directing.

The 32-year-old actor told Good Morning America on Monday: "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."

He added: "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."

Chris attempted to clarify comments he made in an interview earlier this month, during which he said: "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.

"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."
