“You do have the opportunity every day to construct the reality in front of you and that starts with being present and in your own mind and understanding how to stop your mind from making noise.

He further continued,

“So, in a weird way, it’s been my classroom – this acting landscape has kind of forced you to hone some ability in terms of stilling your mind. And in turn you realize that a lot of the fear that breeds anxiety, never really happens, and it’s your own making.”

After retiring from the MCU, Chris Evans was most recently spotted with Ana de Armas when they starred together in Ghosted. The 2023 movie is available to stream on Apple TV+.
