Won’t be quitting acting to focus on politics, clarifies Sheen

LOS ANGELES, Dec 18:  Actor Michael Sheen has clarified that he won’t be quitting his full-time acting career to focus on politics after the interview he gave to a publication, was taken out of context.
In the interview, Sheen was apparently misquoted after seemingly hinting that he would be leaving Hollywood to fight against the “hard populist right.”
The 47-year-old star took to Tumblr to make it clear that he has no plans to leave the showbiz world.
Sheen said he just meant to say that he would like to know more about the political situation in the country.
“I DID NOT declare that I’m ‘quitting acting and leaving Hollywood’ to go into politics. In the actual original interview I said I have become more involved with community issues back at home over the last few years and because of the political situation it’s something I would like to focus on more.
“The interviewer asked me what that meant for my career and I said it might mean I work less as an actor and maybe even stop for a while AT SOME POINT. But I don’t really know yet.” (PTI)
