Steve Martin feels his time as Hollywood hero is over


Los Angeles, Oct 1 (IANS) Actor-musician Steve Martin feels his time as a Hollywood leading man is over.

Martin was a major star of comedy movies throughout the 1980s and 1990s. He featured in numerous hits including “Father Of The Bride”, ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”, and “Planes, Trains And Automobiles”. His box-office successes also include the “The Pink Panther” franchise and the “Cheaper By The Dozen” films.

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


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.
