Christoph Waltz reluctant to act and direct again

Award-winning star Christoph Waltz has admitted he is reluctant to direct and star in another movie.

The Academy Award-winning actor admits he found it tough to balance the challenge during his directorial debut ‘Georgetown’, and Christoph would be hesitant to put himself through that experience again.

He shared: “You need someone to attract investors, so unfortunately that was me so I had to play the part and direct, and I’m not convinced that that’s an ideal combination.”

Christoph also joked about the difficulties of having to direct himself.

He told ‘Good Morning America’: “It’s very, very difficult because I never listen!”

‘Georgetown’ – which sees the actor star as Ulrich Mott, an ambitious social climber – is slated for release next year, but at this moment in time, Christoph is unsure whether the film will eventually be released under that name or not.

The 61-year-old star said: “I’m not sure whether it’s gonna be called ‘Georgetown’ because I haven’t seen the movie yet, I’m still editing.

“I think a movie needs to tell you what it wants to be called.”

Meanwhile, Christoph previously claimed he could spend the rest of his life “playing bad guys”.

The Hollywood star is famous for his villainous roles, including playing Ernst Stavro Blofeld in James Bond film ‘Spectre’, and Christoph admitted he loves the challenge.

He said: “The eternal villain thing is completely indifferent. I am interested in the details.

“What colours on the moral spectrum a role has. It could last me a lifetime just playing villains, but they must be different from each other.”
