The Captain America: The First Avenger star described himself as a "physical disappointment", confessing that he generally goes unrecognised by people on the street because he does not resemble how he appears on film, according to an interview with Redbook.
"I've managed to somehow fly under the radar," Evans said of being approached on the street. "I think I look a lot worse in person than I do on film, so people don't recognise me. In real life, I'm actually a giant physical disappointment, which has worked in my favour."
Evans went on to discuss what he enjoys doing in his free time.
"I just like not working out, really," Evans said. "It's very freeing when I wake up and there's no need to grab the iPod and the sneakers and take that horrible walk to the gym. What can I say? I'm a simple guy with simple pleasures."
Captain America director Joe Johnston recently revealed that the superhero movie features minimal shield throwing, claiming that the film saves the signature move for special moments.
In mid-June, Evans's mother described the actor as a dork for still being a fan of Disney movies at the age of 30.
Captain America: The First Avenger opens in cinemas in the US on July 22 and in the UK on July 29.
