Captain America is losing his hair

Chris Evans seemed to have a full head of hair when he swung by Comic-Con last July (as seen in the picture above), but the “Captain America” actor says he’s losing his locks.

Evans told E! at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards that it’s actually making him a little worried about how he’ll pull off his superheroic duties as the franchise continues.

“I have no problem saying this, but I'm losing my hair,” Evans said. Considering that the actor, who turns 30 on Monday, signed on to do three "Captain America" movies as well as three "Avengers" movies, “The fear is this [role] can span 10 years so I can be doing this character until I’m 40.”

The character's “supposed to be like this superior human being. He can’t be balding," Evans said. "How horrible would it be if this superior man has male pattern baldness?”

The one thing he’s not stressed about, though, is losing Captain America’s beefy physique. “That I can control,” he assured E!.

    Im sorry but Im a Marine and Ive seen bald Marines tougher, and meaner than this guy. More superior than simulating war and combat in a movie. Nothing against him, just saying.

    Also no I am not bald, this guy has nothing to worry about, he can still be superior if hes bald. Just get used to it

    Sounds like he's found the true american way to be a super hero (steroids). explains this whole story. man in his thirties not worried about loosing muscle when entering his flurries, and he's going bald. not saying its conclusive but that is the way alot of these guys get rdy for these big muscle movies, troy just as an example.

    Captain America's origin is not being tough enough to fight in WWII so he gets experimental steroids and becomes Captain America. Steroids and testosterone contribute to baldness. Could it be spun as a negative portrayal of performance enchancing drugs lol? (just kidding for those with no sarcasm detectors...)

  46. Uallrdumb!

    Everyone who commented completely missed the actor's point. He did not opine as to whether balding was good or bad. He was simply making a statement in regard to his ability to depict the character that he signed on to play for the next ten years, and casting doubt, while showing optimism on the prospect of him keeping the role!

      No....he said that his character is supposed to be a superior being and thus shouldn't be balding. This does imply that bald people aren't fit to immitate a superior person... But it's no biggie cause the vast majority of men think going bald is a negative thing... A lot of women think it's hot though... You'd be surprised

    Going bald means you have higher levels of testosterone so it would make sense that captain america would be bald or going bald. But i'm sure they want this movie to be a hit with all the gays so they will get someone with hair.....gotta look good in the suit for the gays

    Silly concern. Male pattern baldness is caused by two things: a modified gene on the X chromosome, and the presence of testosterone. Going bald confirms that you have lots of testosterone. The same thing that lets you build big muscles also thins the hair on your scalp (if you also have that modified gene on the X chromosome). Besides, many of the superior beings in the Marvel universe are bald. And what's common to all descriptions of superior "extraterrestrials"? They're all bald. 😉
