Mortensen: ‘No More Movies’

Awww I hope this is not true . . . it makes me sad. I love a bit of Aragorn . . . and Viggo !!!

Viggo Mortensen has vowed to give up making movies – because promoting them leaves him exhausted.

The 50 year old has starred in numerous films and TV shows since launching his acting career in 1985, most notably as Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings franchise.

But the star insists the gruelling promotional schedule for each new release is leaving him shattered – and it’s spurred him on to quit the industry.

Mortensen tells Britain’s The Times newspaper, “In the past week I’ve been from L.A. to Japan to Korea to Poland to here. It’s ridiculous! It’s not a healthy way to be. But, as it happens, I’m taking measures to change that.

“No more movies. I haven’t said yes to one in over a year. I’ve been in all these well-received movies and it seems like I should be doing some more, but there’s other things I want to do. It’s not the right time.

“If it all dries up now, I’ve had a good run.”
