Chris Evans is Variety’s handsome cover man

Chris Evans debuted his beard at the Academy Awards earlier this month.

It’s growing on me.

As much as I want Captain America to retain the boyish look that got my attention from the first second I saw him in Cellular, he is maturing nicely and, at 32, is sexier than ever.

But Evans tells Variety what he really wants to do is direct.

“If I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing,” he says. “I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.”

He is under contract for six films as Marvel’s Captain America and has completed two of them, including the hugely successful Avengers movie.

He spent his time between blockbuster films directing an intimate $3 million love story tentatively called 1:30 Train.

It focuses on a young woman (Alice Eve) who misses her ride home at Grand Central Terminal and spends the night talking to a street musician (played by Evans). He shot the film on Manhattan’s Lower East side over the course of just 19 days, and recently finished editing a rough cut.

“I’ve known for a while I wanted to direct,” Evans says. “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.”

7 Remarks

  1. He is certainly getting better look as he ages. Love that hairy chest when he doesn’t shave it too.

    I thought Chris Evans was hot, first time I saw him on the screen a while back. I love his beard and he just gets better looking as he ages.

  3. I really don’t see the attraction to Chris Evans – personally, I find his younger brother Scott Evans MUCH more handsome than Chris.

  4. Chris is so HOT shaved or unshaved! And since Henry Cavill started a trend in Man of Steel, Chris should keep his beautiful chest hair unshaved in the next Capt. America film.

  5. Chris is a beautiful man! Sorry to learn he won’t be acting other than the comic book movies.

  6. Scott Evans is that you pretending to be Bart???

  7. PLEASE keep the beard Chris. WOOF!
