Cristiano Ronaldo says he is targeting a starring role in Hollywood after he retires from football.
The 34-year-old wants to follow in the footsteps of other footballers who have appeared in numerous feature-length productions, including Vinnie Jones, Eric Cantona and David Beckham.
The Portugal and Juventus forward, who is currently enjoying Serie A’s mid-season break, was speaking at the Dubai International Sports Conference.
I hope I live more than 50 years more and I want to prepare to face the obstacles of a new life, to do things I don’t know how to do,” he said.
For example, to participate in a movie in Hollywood. But you need to have a good preparation, you need to have top English to give a top performance and then you don’t have to be nervous.
It’s hard for me to be nervous in football because that’s what I have prepared for my whole life.”
Ronaldo has 10 goals in 14 Serie A matches so far this season, and will return to action when Juventus take on Cagliari on January 6.
