Chris Evans: ‘Age makes it harder to stay Captain America lean’


Chris Evans’ “soft” stomach has forced him to reassess his diet.

The 36-year-old actor has been showing off his rock hard abs and bulging biceps for six years as Captain America, and can next be seen as the patriotic hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming in July (17).

He’s also part of next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, but admits that he’s over spending so much time in the gym.

“There’s a lot of time in the gym – that’s tough. My body doesn’t naturally want to be this size and it’s getting harder as I get older,” he tells Britain’s Metro newspaper.

“And now I’ve noticed that no matter how hard I work out, I can still feel a little bit of soft section around the middle, so I’ve had to start incorporating a bit of diet. Nothing too strict but no late-night pints of ice cream.”
