Double Oscar-winner Gene Hackman has vowed to never make another movie - because he is desperate to be taken seriously as an author.
The French Connection star has "retired" from his acting career to spend more time writing books after recently publishing his third historical novel, Escape From Andersonville.
And Hackman believe he has found his real passion in writing - because he is now more critical of his work.
He explains, "I haven't worked in acting for four years now so I guess you'd call it retirement... and I don't miss the business.
"I never read reviews of the films I've done but I read reviews of the books. I'm a neophyte at this and I want some kind of reinforcement that I should continue."
