Being an actor is scary: Bill Nighy

Press Trust of India  |  London 

says he finds being an actor "scary".

The "Love Actually" star says enjoys taking time off from acting because being on a movie set makes him feel "paranoid," reported Femalefirst.



"I have been accused of workaholism but most people go to work every day. They have three or four weeks off a year and nobody says to them, 'You're a workaholic'. I'm very good at (downtime) actually. I'm very good at walking round, very good at coffee, very good at bookshops, very good at listening to music...

"I love to sit in a cafe with a book, and I don't feel guilty about it because, when I do work, it's scary. If you want to get paranoid, go on a film set. There are 100 people, then someone says 'action' and the other 98 people start looking at you. I always think I can't do it, so my life has been a series of surprises," Nighy, 67, says.
