Actor Christopher Walken, who stars in “When I Live My Life Over Again”, says he would never like to retire from acting. The 72-year-old star, who has starred in movies like “The Deer Hunter”, “Annie Hall”, “A View to a Kill”, “Pulp Fiction” and “Catch Me If You Can”, told the Wrap that he does not know anything other than acting.

“If you’re in this business, you always feel that. Acting is one of those things, you can keep doing it as long as they ask you to do it. They say you don’t retire from acting — they retire you. And I don’t want to be retired, because what would I do?

“You know, I went to the same dentist for 30 years, and the last time I went to see him he said he was retiring. I said, ‘What are you going to do?’ He said, ‘Oh, I’ll play golf, I’ll travel…’ I’m not going to play golf. If I retired, I wouldn’t have anything to do, and I think it’s the same for most actors,” said the actor.
