Few people can put “their career on hold”. You know why ? Well, because you have to have a lot of money for that. Actors often do. Some because they just feel like it – and they’re right – and others because they’re a little too busy. Busy for generally not very fun reasons. Because of all that, there are a few actors we shouldn’t see hanging out on sets this year. Will surely have to wait before seeing them again at the movies. Anyway, working is bad for your health.
The second Spider-Man (and first in some people’s hearts) decides to take a break at just 38 broomsticks to “do normal stuff.” The guy explained that he wants to hang out with his buddies and chow down on burgers, which in itself is quite an ideal life goal. He is right.
2. Amber Heard
It is well known, at the moment Amber Heard is on trial against her ex Johnny Depp. She accuses him of being violent with her, and accuses him of lying and causing her to lose her biggest movie contracts. So we’re not going to take sides (in any case, the two seem very borderline), but what is certain is that no one is rushing to have Amber Heard in their films anymore and that she should not not turn for a while. A petition is even circulating to have it removed fromAquaman and the Lost Kingdom shot at the end of 2021, like what she really entered the list of undesirables.
3. Bruce Willis
Suffering from aphasia, a language disorder, Bruce Willis announced at the beginning of the year that he was retiring. It’s sad, and it means above all that – unless there is a huge surprise – he should no longer accept any role, and even less in 2022. Too bad, we will watch the best films of Bruce Willis, again and again . There is plenty to do.
4. Will Smith
The whole world saw Will Smith slap Chris Rock at the last Academy Awards. Inevitably, it does not do much good to the image of the actor, even if he won his statuette. The direct consequence of its cracking is that the producers no longer scramble to have it, and that some projects are even canceled. This is the case of Bright 2 that Netflix has decided to put aside. The platform also sets aside Fast and Looseanother film where Will Smith was to have a big role, and Badboys 4 is also put on hold. That’s a lot of projects less for Will Smith who should probably find himself without filming until the end of the year. Sacred punishment.
5. Sandra Bullock
At the end of March of this year, the actress, who had returned among the greats with Gravity, has decided to put his career on hold to take care of the education of his children. She announced that she would probably come back when the kids (aged 10 and 12) became teenagers. That leaves him a few years away from the sets.
6. Jim Carrey
Just after Bruce Willis, the totally brilliant actor of The Truman Show, The Mask Where Ace Ventura also announced his retirement. Well, almost: if we bring him a golden script, he could turn up in filming. In the meantime, he should no longer be in front of the cameras this year. This is probably good news for the teams, since Jim Carrey is known to be an unbearable actor on set.
7. Gwyneth Paltrow
In 2016, Gwyneth decided to take a break from her film career to focus on her cosmetics brand (and offer weird health advice). Since then, she only returned to shoot to resume her small role as Pepper Pots in the Marvel films. But since there’s no new movie on the horizon for Pepper, that means there won’t be a Gwyneth in Hollywood either. And frankly, it makes us neither hot nor cold.
8. Anthony Delon
It’s probably a tragedy for most of you (no), but Alain Delon’s son is putting his acting career on hold. He wants to dedicate himself to his clothing brand, so his last film will remain for the time being. Murders at Mont Saint-Michela TV movie from France 3. A minute of silence for this absence in 2022.
