London, July 9 (IANS) Al Pacino feels “flattered” when younger actors consider him a role model, but says he doesn’t consider himself a legend.
“I’m very flattered to hear that, that compliment. I don’t think of myself as anything but an actor struggling to find the next role and when I do get the role to try and see if I can find any way into it,” said the 70-year-old, who is still remembered for his role in “The Godfather” trilogy.

Pacino says he doesn’t have much advice to give to younger stars except that they should educate themselves and should be well read, reports contactmusic.com.

“With young actors I learn from them, just as hopefully I always will. If I were to advise them in some way, I would say this is a craft that you just have to keep doing. Do it whenever you can and you shouldn’t spend too much time dealing with the fact that there’s a world out there with a lot of competition.

“You have to educate yourself. You have to read. You have to see things that are inspiring to you.”
