Now, however, Martin says he has come to terms with the fact that his name is no longer wanted for top-billing on movie posters, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

In an interview with “The Times”, the comic star said: “My official statement is, I lost interest in the movies at exactly the point the movies lost interest in me.”

“I realised later that what I was doing wasn’t comedy. It was an event… By the end it felt like I had fully expressed an idea. I couldn’t have changed it that much. It was an iconoclastic type of act, it involved a lot of jumping around. It was a moment. I look back at it and and I think, ‘What were they laughing at? I don’t know, I never did jokes then like I do now. I just ran around and got distracted. I couldn’t do that act again. I have no interest in it,” he said.
