Los Angeles, Mar 31 (IBNS): Hollywood actor-director Chris Evans has said he is not planning to retire from his acting career yet.

"By no means am I planning on retiring. It's kind of a silly statement. But I certainly am going to try to focus a bit more on directing at this point, " Evans said on Good Morning America on Monday.

"I said that I directed last year. I really responded to it. I really enjoyed it," the 32-year-old said.

Speaking to Variety earlier, Evans reportedly said that he planned to curb his acting roles, apart from his contractual commitments. 

"If I'm acting at all, it's going to be under Marvel contract, or I'm going to be directing," he said in the interview. 

"I can't see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I'm contractually obligated to do," he said.

Evans is best known for his superhero roles as Johnny Storm / Human Torch in Fantastic Four (2005) and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007), and Steve Rogers / Captain America in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) and Marvel's The Avengers (2012).

He began his career on the television series Opposite Sex (2000) and later moved to film, appearing in Not Another Teen Movie (2001), Fierce People (2005), Sunshine (2007), Push (2009), The Losers (2010), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), and What's Your Number? (2011).
