Hugh Grant says that he is pretty much finished with acting. What?!? There’s got to be a third Bridget Jones movie! This just isn’t right!
Hugh revealed that he doesn’t really sign on for that many movie projects anymore because he doesn’t really care for appearing in front of the camera. In a new interview, he said, “I’m pretty much finished. Occasionally something tickles my fancy, otherwise I’m fine.”
He went on to say, “I’m still not very keen on acting. I don’t do much work, but I like the aspects of it. I like the camaraderie with people you are working with. But actually standing in front of a camera, no I don’t love that.”
He said that he tries to give people some realistic advice when asked about acting. He said, “I get a lot of cousins and friends asking me for advice, saying, ‘I want to be an actor.’ It’s this disease that some people get, it’s weird. Sometimes they are incredibly talented, and sometimes, they have no talent whatsoever, and I don’t know what to tell them or their parents.”
He added, “The saddest thing in the world is to see someone going on in their late thirties or forties still struggling to play a carrot on a TV commercial. For some people, they have to do it, they are so stage struck.”
Do you think Hugh is making the right decision in giving up acting? Or should he cave in and do more Bridget Jones movies for us?
