Chris Evans Panic Attacks on Set Almost Made Him Quit Acting
Chris Evans used to experience extreme anxiety on film sets that almost made him stop performing.
Chris Evans recently talked about his panic attacks and how they almost forced him to give up the acting profession for good.
In the latest episode of THR's Awards Chatter podcast, the 38-year-old actor went on a nostalgic trip to his overall career, speaking with Scott Feinberg.
Chris spoke on how it took a significant amount of time to be taken seriously as an actor, and how most viewers felt his films were terrible. He said, “There was a period of time where you start thinking, ‘Man, I can’t make a good movie. I don’t know what it is. … I wonder how many chances I’m gonna get at this.’”

Although several of Chris' flameouts were big releases that received a lot of coverage, he even had smaller films like 2007's Sunshine that were critically applauded. "Nobody sees my good movies," he chuckled.
Chris claims after he began shooting Puncture in 2010, he started experiencing panic attacks.
It was the first time I started having mini panic attacks on set. I really started to think, ‘I’m not sure if this [acting] is the right thing for me, I’m not sure if I’m feeling as healthy as I should be feeling.’
Fortunately, right afterwards, Chris landed the part of Captain America, and his career really went up a notch in an instant.
After eight years, Evans' arc was eventually finished in the franchise with him going back in time and deciding to live his life with Peggy Carter.
