Bill Murray never wanted to act

Feb 1 2013, 10:16am CST | by

Bill Murray ''never intended'' to be an actor.

The 62-year-old star, who is best known for his roles in films such as 'Lost In Translation' and 'Groundhog Day', admitted that he never set out to become famous but found himself becoming more talented when working in a ''relaxed'' atmosphere to help him get into character.

He explained: ''I never intended to do this for a living. I just realised I could. And I realised that, to be good it helped to be relaxed; the more fun I had, the better I was.

''Oh, I'll fight with people to make sure it's more relaxed. No! We're going to be more relaxed here!''

After his role as Dr. Peter Venkman in 1984's 'Ghostbusters', instead of immediately responding to the high level of success Bill decided to study philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris, France.

When asked if he considered leaving showbusiness behind him back then, Bill told Radio Times magazine: ''Well you can't be a philosopher on top of a mountain. You need to get out in the world and put it into action.''

After shooting his latest film 'Hyde Park on Hudson', he realised how enjoyable acting was for him and experienced an overwhelming sense of pride at the finished piece.

Recalling the end of one particular scene, Bill said: ''There was this glorious sunset, and music was playing, and the crew were loading trucks to the music.

''And I did think, you know, that was a great day's work. And we were all responsible for it.''

Oct 25 2014 10:50am CDT | Source: Collider

After four adult-skewing frames in a row, teen audiences will regain control of the box office with Ouija this weekend.  The PG-13 horror movie starring Hasbro’s venerable “board game,” earned $8.3 million from 2,858 locations on Friday despite receiving some of the worst reviews of the year.  Ouija is not going to break out like R-rated Annabelle did a few weeks back, but the Universal release should have no trouble summoning over $20 million on its ...

St. Vincent Review: Bill Murray Is Mesmerizing

Oct 24 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Bill Murray is Vincent and it’s safe to say he’s about as far away from being a Saint as can be when St. Vincent commences. And also, to describe his latest classic Murray character as a curmudgeon in this dark comedy is merely just the beginning of how we’d label this guy. He’s a laundry list of personality traits that are an utter delight for the audience to witness, but less than enjoyable for, frankly, anyone who has to meet him, or much less ...

Melissa McCarthy Not Yet Part Of ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot; Lena Dunham and Ellen DeGeneres Want In

Oct 20 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

The second rumors began circulating of an all-female Ghostbusters, the first person people though of was Melissa McCarthy. The Bridesmaids star is the most popular female comedic actress out there right now and her inclusion seemed like a forgone conclusion. That got even more likely when her frequent collaborator, Paul Feig, signed on to direct. However, while McCarthy will probably, eventually, end up in the new Ghostbusters film, she said on The Ellen DeGeneres  ...
