That is par for the course, actors playing someone they're older than, so with a bunch of actresses who are 25 or younger (Alison Brie is 29, but she plays a much younger college student, while her co-star, similarly aged, plays someone in their late-20s) the character might very well be younger than event that, like 21 or 22.
I don't know about the movies, but in the comics Captain America was born in 1917, later retconned to 1922.
