Chris Evans drew the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Steve Rogers aka Captain America. Evans recently expressed concern and said that he originally planned to reject the offer to play the lead role in the Marvel movie because he has been dealing with severe anxiety problems for several years.
Earlier on Monday, Chris Evans spoke in The Hollywood Reporter’s podcast, Awards Chatter, about his first experience with mental health and anxiety. Evans revealed that he first faced his own worries when he made his film debut in the 2007 Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, where he played Johnny Storm aka Human Torch.
“The superhero thing came back when it was just starting I was just thrown out and I needed it,” he said. Evan added that he launched the panic attack while filming Panchachar in 2010.
“For the first time, I launched a mini-panic attack on the set,” Evans said. “I really started to think,‘ I’m not sure if it’s [acting] The right thing for me, I’m not sure if I should feel exactly as healthy as I should. ‘
Chris Evans rejected Marvel’s offer:
Back in 2011 when Marvel Studios came to Chris Evans to do a test for the role of Steve Rogers aka Captain America in Captain America: The First Avenger, he rejected them. However, the studio came back and offered him the role.
