Michael Sheen clarifies his comments on quitting acting

Michael Sheen clarifies his comments on quitting acting

"I DID NOT [Sheen's caps] declare that I'm "quitting acting and leaving Hollywood" to go into politics", he wrote.

He explained on Tumblr that he told the interviewer that he has become more "involved with community issues back at home", but did not say that he would stop acting. "It's not going to look like this in 10 years' time. The dice are being rolled again".

However, following increased media speculation on his acting future and reported backlash from Brexit and Trump supporters, Mr Sheen has come out to clarify his situation with a statement on Twitter. "But it has to be understood before it can be stopped", he said.

Sheen said he developed an increasing role in activism after connecting with community organizations while participating in street performances with over 1,000 volunteers as part of the National Theatre Wales's production of The Passion in Port Talbot, Wales in 2011.

As much as we may love watching Michael Sheen onscreen, we're happy to give up that joy so he can pursue something that really matters - especially when that something might be a fix to just how truly very bad the a year ago has been.

The Times interview, published yesterday and quickly picked up by numerous news sites including Deadline, quoted Sheen as describing a switch to political activism as "Once I'm in, I'm fully in, and this is big". "The majority of people in the United Kingdom, including my hometown of Port Talbot, voted for Brexit".

In an interview with U.K.'s The Times on Saturday, the 47-year-old actor said he plans to "work less as an actor, and possibly stop... for the time being" in order to become a full-time political activist. "Our democracy must be defended and each of us needs to decide how we can contribute to that effort". He also said he's not focusing specifically on the Brexit vote, but rather the "general world rise of anti-democratic forces".

He told BBC Wales previous year people should be given the power to run communities instead of "career politicians".

"It will be a big change for how people relate to me", Sheen said.

For the past few years he has been in a relationship with USA comedian Sarah Silverman, and he admitted he did not know whether the relationship would work across the Atlantic.
