CATEGORIES Movie NewsLast year, Chris Evans complained to Moviefone that no one's ever seen his "good films," like Danny Boyle's cerebral space thriller "Sunshine" or Evans' turn as a drug-addicted lawyer in "Puncture."
Therefore, it's not a huge surprise the "Avengers" star just admitted to Hong Kong's Prestige magazine that out of the 20 movies he's made, he's "probably proud of three" of them, one being last summer's "Captain America."
"At the point of 'Captain America' being offered to me, I had already made quite a few stinkers," said Evans. "I couldn't afford to make another one, let alone another one on that scale. If you make one that big and it fails, your days are numbered."
So what are the films he's not proud of? We can (presumably) count his other superhero role in "The Fantastic Four" movies, the rom-com "What's Your Number?" with Anna Faris and the long-ago teen caper "The Perfect Score" opposite "Avengers" co-star Scarlett Johnansson.
Although Evans may be gung-ho about his role as patriotic super soldier Steve Rogers now, he originally had some not-so-positive things to say about the -- what appeared to be -- exhausting shoot. However, he later admitted that "the reward for 'Captain America' is amazing. It's always fun to see a giant spectacle film and see the fun stuff -- the special effects and sh-t."
Evans is set to reprise -- and, fingers crossed, enjoy -- his role as Captain America in the upcoming superhero epic "The Avengers," out May 4.
