Australian actor Guy Pearce, 44, plans to take some time off from acting because he needs to go and be himself for a while. Pearce, who has starred in films such as The King’s Speech, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, and The Hurt Locker, says he has been struggling to read scripts of late and has decided to quit acting for a while, reported Contactmusic.
“I’m taking six months off. I’ve worked way too much in the last two years and I’m just sort of blank. I read scripts and glaze over them at the moment. I need to just kind of go and be me for a while,” he said.
The actor, who also has a part in filmmaker Ridley Scott’s much anticipated Alien prequel, Prometheus, said that he has run out of energy to take on new parts. “You just get to a point where you become vacuous. I just don’t have any energy to be anyone else other than me.
So yeah it’s really important. People sort of say, but just read this one script. I’m like no, there’s no point in me reading this script, because I’ll resent it,” he added.
