Viggo Mortensen is considering early retirement following the release of his new movie THE ROAD - because he wants to spend more time as a publisher, poet and photographer.
The Lord of The Rings star, who publishes his poetry and photographic books through his Perceval Press imprint, insists he is planning a long hiatus from Hollywood - and he may never return as a movie star.
He tells Men's Journal magazine, "I have no plans to do another movie. I don't know what's going to happen. I'm open to seeing how I feel in a while, but right now I'm not saying yes to anything.
"My agent is like, 'Well, if you don't do anything, people will forget about you...' I just feel like I've taken on too much for a while."
