Michael Sheen has no intention to leave Hollywood at present, the actor has clarified amid reports that he is stepping back from his acting career to become a full-time activist.
He clarified about the article that ran in The Times that said he was planning to leave Hollywood in order to pursue full-time activism, reports variety.com.
“Before this gets ridiculous, I said I’m thinking I might start acting less and maybe even stop for a while at some point, but don’t know yet,” Sheen tweeted on Saturday afternoon.
He explained on Tumblr that he told the interviewer that he has become more “involved with community issues back at home”, but did not say that he would stop acting.
Sheen is the star of TV show “Masters of Sex”. He also stars in Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt’s sci-fi film “Passengers”, which will release in India on January 6 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
The actor also has two films currently in post-production — “Home Again”, starring Reese Witherspoon, and Mike White’s film “Brad’s Status”.
