Last week, a rumor surfaced on the internet, suggesting that Lord Of The Rings actor, Viggo Mortensen was set to retire from acting for good. He had fans worried when he said that he was taking a break from acting after his movie, The Road came out.
He said, “I have no plans to do another movie. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m open to seeing how I feel in a while, but right now I’m not saying yes to anything. My agent is like, ‘Well, if you don’t do anything, people will forget about you…’ I just feel like I’ve taken on too much for a while.”
He says that he didn’t mean for it to sound like he was giving up acting for good…he just wants a break.
He added, “I know people are reading about that on the Internet. People just asked me if I had another movie lined up and I was honest and I said, ‘No, not yet.’ I guess most actors lie and say, ‘Oh, I have 12 projects, but I can’t really disclose them.’ At least they didn’t say I died!”
At least he’s being honest. He just wants to max and relax with all of his successes, nothing wrong with that.
