Hollywood star Chris Evans has only his mother to thank for encouraging him to take up the popular role of Captain America in the hugely successful ‘Avengers’ franchise. The actor who first put on his superhero uniform in the 2011 origins film ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, has not been one to deny that he had his reservations about taking on the role.

The actor famously revealed multiple times that he even turned down the offer a few times, and was only cast because Marvel bosses were keen for him to play the part. It has now come to light that Chris’ mother, Lisa who urged him to reconsider turning down the Marvel blockbuster in what has now become one of his career highlights and has also made him one of Hollywood’s highest-earning celebrities.

Lisa said in a recent interview that her son feared the pressures of fame.

"His biggest fear was losing his anonymity. He said, 'I have a career now where I can do work I really like. I can walk my dog. Nobody bothers me. Nobody wants to talk to me. I can go wherever I want. And the idea of losing that is terrifying to me'," she said in a candid chat with an international magazine.

"I said to him, 'Look, you want to do acting work for the rest of your life? If you do this part, you will have the opportunity. You'll never have to worry about paying the rent. If you take the part, you just have to decide, 'It's not going to affect my life negatively - it will enable it.' "

Evans, who also starred in the 2005 film ‘Fantastic Four’ and its 2007 sequel, took his mother's advice and played Steve Rogers, aka, Captain America in 10 Marvel movies.

Following the events of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, rumours are abuzz that the star may just make a comeback in upcoming Marvel films.
