Well, it looks like it might be the end of Michael Cera
. WoW, that was fast.
The young 20-year-old canuck is complaining, and might call it quits right after 9 years of his career. I just received my latest issue of EW (Entertainment Weekly), and has said why he wants to quit acting.
The Ontario native insists that he's taking the rest of the year off, and that he'll be thinking long and hard about wether he should put the breaks on his career.
He made his start as a professional actor at 9 year-old, working on a canadian television. But he's only recently discovered a truism about Hollywood:Being a bona fide is weird. "That aspect of the job is kind of new to me," he says, as polite, hesitant, endearing, and nervous in real life as he comes off on film.
"It's scary. And I know I didn't think about it when I was 9 Years-Old."
"I love Acting, and I love being on the set." But its the other stuff that comes with the job that's starting to get to him. Cera started to feel "vulnerable," he says, after Superbad grossed $121 million last summer. As his co-star Jonah Hill puts it, "One day things were normal for us, and then the next day the movie opened, and things kinda changed completely."
One year later, Cera still isn't comfortable with the paparazzi at red carpet events. "They're so aggressive and really mean" he says. Also with people eye-balling him on the streets."I was always self-conscious, and feeling like you're being looked at just amplifies that feeling-you get paranoid." he says. And also, with the haters who rag on him on the Web message boards. "People are Crazy"
Give me a moment to say some here...
NO SHIT!!! WHAT DID YOU THINK WAS GONNA HAPPEND AFTER SUPERBAD!?!?!?
Should have quit when you had the chance. But too late.
Now, for the rest...
Cera knows people don't like to hear actors complaining about fame. "You get very little sympathy for it," he says."People can't relate, really."
"I wanna be myself still, and I don't think I need to toughen up. It'd be weird to be comfortable with [celebrity]. But I won't drive myself crazy or have a nervous breakdown. I'll just deal with it." he says.
First of all, let me say this wether you spillios like it or not...
There are thousands of struggling actors out there who are eating S#!T, being treated like S#!T, are told that they acting is too S#!TTY by casting directors, Their face being dumped in a pyle of S#!T, working in S#!TTY jobs with S#!TTY pay. And yet, this ungrateful, little bastard who lacks of charisma, and shows no emotion is complaining about fame. Seriously (And don't get me wrong, I do like the kid), did he not know the price he would have to pay once he succeeded fame and glamour with the success of "Superbad
"? Fame just happens wether you like it or not. For those aspiring actors out there, if you can't deal with the $#!T that comes with it, then maybe Hollywood just isn't for you. Just stick with theater if you want to be an actor.
Even though he lacks a bit in his acting skills he, and with everything i just said here, it would really suck if he would quit for a stupid reason. But if we do get to see the end of Michael Cera
, then it's too bad because I betted my friend that in the next five years he would be the next Jason Biggs
...because he plays the same roles.
DAMN IT!!! I guess I lost.
