Kevin Smith - Kevin Smith Not Worried About Next Job

Subscribe to Kevin Smith alerts

Kevin Smith didn't "give a f**k" when he was making 'Red State'.

The 41-year-old actor-and-filmmaker is set to retire from the movie business when he creates his "farewell film" 'Hit Somebody' next year, so he didn't feel the need to worry about how his latest motion picture would turn out.

He said: "The film Dangerous, and different, and made by someone who just doesn't give a f**k. Because I didn't have to worry about where the next job is coming from. Because there is no next job."

Kevin - who has directed and starred in 'Mallrats', 'Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back' and 'Dogma' - is "ecstatic" to be approaching retirement from working on movies, but he still "loves" the industry and appreciates The Benefits he's got out of the business throughout his career.

He added: "I'm ecstatic, dude. Because I'm close to the end. I'm one content cat. Yes, there's an inner fear that I'm doing so much because somewhere inside I know that I'm going to die.

"But even that doesn't make me sad. I'm happier now than I've been in a long time.

"I looked back on my career and I saw that I came in strong as an artist with 'Clerks'. But eventually it became about career management.

"The specific stories that were on my chest were gone. I still love film, and it's given me everything that I have in life. But I feel that to honour it I really have to put it down.
