To be honest I really don’t think it’s such a bad thing, I just wish Tom Cruise, Renee Zelweger and Sarah Jessica Parker would follow suit, pack up and dissapear. Though if Sarah Jessica Parker vanished, I would have very little to write about and my favorite website would have less impact.
The Film Drunks put together a list of quotes that actors said when abandoning their careers in Hollywood. These were my favorites:
Clint Eastwood: â€œ[Gran Torino] will probably be my last. Iâ€™ll be drummed out of it after this one. Every time you do a movie you think, â€˜Aw, thatâ€™s enough of that.â€™â€
Sean Connery: â€œThe time has come because of my rather unfortunate last movie. The cost to me in terms of frustration and avoiding going to jail for murder cannot have continued.â€
Tom Selleck: â€œA dog was killed â€” trampled to death â€” and it really disturbed meâ€¦ I remember saying to my agent, â€˜If this is what itâ€™s like, Iâ€™ve got to find another line of work.â€
Freddie Prinze Jr: â€˜Iâ€™m going to stop acting in the next few years because itâ€™s just too weird.â€â€˜
