Being an actor isn't fun anymore

“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being an actor-director-musician-singer just isn't fun anymore,” he might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that he may branch out into other creative fields he is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.


For a little while on Wednesday evening, #ThankYouAlan was a trending hashtag on Twitter. As many fans reminisce and look back on all the unforgettable memories, some may wonder what about now made him make the decision.

“You’ve accomplished everything I ever dreamed of #ThankYouAlan.”
