Actor Chris Evans' mother, Lisa, has said in a new profile that he was hesitant about taking on the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, and she had to convince him to do it.
Lisa Evans told Esquire that her son was afraid of losing his anonymity.
"His biggest fear was losing his anonymity," Lisa said.
"He would call and ask for my advice," she added. "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."
