Richard Attenborough downplays ill health reportsMay 16th, 2009 - 3:54 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 16 (ANI): Lord Richard Attenborough has slammed reports of his ill health, insisting that he has no plans to quit acting in the near future.
The 85-year-old Oscar winner is staying in a London hospital, five months after a fall at his London home left him in a coma.
And now, the veteran star is on the road to recovery, although he recently had to pull out of his role in historical movie ‘Ironclad’ due to health concerns.
However, Attenborough is determined that his film career is not over and he will be back on the big screen as soon as he feels well enough.
“I wish to make it clear that I am very much alive and kicking. To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports regarding the demise of my career have been greatly exaggerated. It remains my intention to take up offers,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying in a statement.
Attenborough was due to play his 74th film role this summer (09), alongside Robert Carlyle, James Purefoy and Pete Postlethwaite. (ANI)
