Nicholas Cage threatens to quit actingFebruary 2nd, 2008 - 5:40 pm ICT by admin
Washington , Feb 02 (ANI): Academy Award-winning actor Nicholas Cage has revealed that he will quit the movie industry, because he has “grown tired” of appearing in blockbuster films.
The World Trade Centre star has confessed that he has lost his passion for acting and his career has forced him to become withdrawn.
“Some movie stars look like they are having a ball, but I’m tired of it. It has made me reclusive. That is an increasingly gnawing feeling in my body, Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
“When I first started I loved it. One of my frustrations is I have no control. I haven’t worked in a while, and it will be eight months before I start my next picture. I know for the first time which direction I’m going in and what changes I want to make,” he added.
Another thing that is making the actor take this decision is the fear that his fans are tired of watching him on the big screen.
“For some reason, I p**s off the audience. People who like one type of film don’t like to see me in another, he said.
“Things I did and said early on still haunt me. I started acting at 17, but I’m 44 now and have grown up. I wonder if I am still interesting to watch if I didn’t drink or raise hell, but it’s obnoxious to keep drinking,” he added. (ANI)
