Peter Jackson can't take time off

Sir Peter Jackson didn't sleep while filming 'The Hobbit' trilogy.

The Oscar-winning director has admitted he doesn't take time off during the filmmaking process and struggles to catch any sleep since he is so committed to living up to everyone's expectations.

He joked: ''When do I sleep? To me you have a responsibility to an audience and the studio who are giving you a lot of money and a responsibility to yourself and your childhood dreams so sleeping seems like something you should do much later on. So I always feel a little bit guilty.

''I find it hard to take days off when I'm working on a movie, because I do have a family. You do feel that you should be spending that time making the best movie you possibly can!''

The 'King Kong' director is still incredulous he has gone from a lonely boy experimenting with filming to a successful director with a creative team surrounding him who can bring J.R.R. Tolkien's magical world to life.

He told BANG Showbiz: ''I grew up with my mum and dad's Super 8 movie making spaceships out of cardboard and making little rubber monsters. The fact that I am doing what I'm doing today is not just because it's just a profession or a job, it's a hobby, and I'm not just by myself anymore as only child.

''I've got the most incredible family around me of skilled artists who help me so anything that I'm imagining in my head, they have the skills and the technology to be able to make it for the film. There's really no barrier anymore, anything is possible with the right people to help you.''
