Chris Evans has confessed that his latest film Ghosted “could have been better”.

The Captain America star is aware of the negative reviews of his Apple TV+ romantic action film and addressed these opinions in an interview with GQ, published on Tuesday.

In the film, Chris plays Cole Turner, who falls for Sadie Rhodes – played by Ana de Armas – who turns out to be a secret agent.

The 42-year-old said Ghosted, which was released back in April, felt like a film he grew up watching but he also observed that he doesn’t really see films like that anymore in Hollywood.

He wondered: “And the question is whether or not audiences have outgrown those types of films.”

GQ writer, Zach Baron, asked the star: “Is that a question you had going into it or coming out of it?”.

“Both,” Chris replied. “I didn’t think audiences had outgrown it prior, and I still don’t think they have, despite the fact – I mean, technically I think we did OK, in terms of viewership.”

According to Deadline, Ghosted has become Apple TV+’s most watched film debut.

The actor is mindful that “critics didn’t like it” – on the review website Rotten Tomatoes, 26% of 116 critics’ reviews are positive.

However, Chris believes “that’s more the fault of the movie as opposed to the appetite of the audience”.

He added: “I think the appetite’s there, if it’s done properly. We could have been better.”

In the same interview, Chirs briefly mentions life with wife Alba Baptista.

The pair married at a private estate in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, earlier this month.
