Quotage: Actors fleeing Hollywood

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: “[Gran Torino] will probably be my last. I’ll be drummed out of it after this one. Every time you do a movie you think, ‘Aw, that’s enough of that.’”

Sean Connery: “The 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.”

Tom Selleck: “A dog was killed — trampled to death — and it really disturbed me… I remember saying to my agent, ‘If this is what it’s like, I’ve got to find another line of work.”

Freddie Prinze Jr: ‘I’m going to stop acting in the next few years because it’s just too weird.”‘

For the complete list head on over to our buddies at FilmDrunk.
