The Hollywood stars who quit acting

Daniel Day-Lewis surprised Hollywood this week by announcing his retirement from acting.

Although he still has one film due to be released later this year – Phantom Thread, based on the fashion world of 1950s London – after he finishes its promotion he “will no longer be working as an actor”.

Whether he can be tempted back out of retirement remains to be seen, but here are nine other stars who have quit the profession.

Cameron Diaz

You might not have realised, but Cameron Diaz hasn’t been in a film since 2014’s Annie, nor does she have any films in the pipeline.

She recently explained why she stepped out of the spotlight at an event run by her best mate, Gwyneth Paltrow.

“I just went, ‘I can’t really say who I am to myself.’ Which is a hard thing to face up to. I felt the need to make myself whole,” she said at a Goop Wellness Summit.

In the years since, she has married Good Charlotte singer Benji Madden and published two books – The Body Book, a health and fitness manual, and The Longevity Book, about the art and science of growing older.

Sir Sean Connery

Once voted the sexiest man of the 20th Century, James Bond star Sir Sean Connery quit acting after filming The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in 2003.

He didn’t officially confirm his retirement until he received the American Film Institute’s lifetime achievement award in 2006.

Although according to his friend Sir Michael Caine, it was the movie business that retired the Bond star “because he didn’t want to play small parts about old men and they weren’t offering him any young parts in romantic leads”.

Sir Sean has since been enjoying retirement, spending his days playing golf and has been spotted at the odd tennis tournament.

Rick Moranis

Canadian actor Rick Moranis rose up Hollywood’s ranks after appearing in hit films such as Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, Little Shop of Horrors and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

However he began scaling back his acting work after his wife died of cancer in 1991 and retired from on-screen work completely in 1997 to concentrate on raising his children.

“I’m a single parent, and I just found that it was too difficult to manage raising my kids and doing the travelling involved in making movies,” he told USA Today in 2005.

“So I took a little bit of a break. And the little bit of a break turned into a longer break, and then I found that I really didn’t miss it.”

Shirley Temple

One of the most famous child actors, Shirley Temple was awarded a special juvenile Oscar in 1935 for her contribution to film that year when she was just seven years old.

But as she grew older her appeal declined and she retired from acting in 1950 at the grand old age of 22.

She returned to the spotlight in the late 1960s as a politician and diplomat, and became the US ambassador to Czechoslovakia in 1989.

She continued to work in public service including for the United Nations until she died in 2014 aged 85.

Jack Gleeson

As King Joffrey on hit TV show Game of Thrones, (SPOILER ALERT) Jack Gleeson played one of the most hated characters on TV for three years, but when his character was killed off in season three, the star decided to kill off his acting career too.

“I’ve been acting since age eight,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “I just stopped enjoying it as much as I used to… whereas up until now it was always something I did for recreation with my friends, or in the summer for some fun – I enjoyed it.

“When you make a living from something, it changes your relationship with it. It’s not like I hate it, it’s just not what I want to do.”

Gleeson went on to study philosophy and theology at Dublin’s Trinity College, although he dipped a toe back into performing when he took a puppet show, called Bears in Space, to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 and London’s Soho Theatre in 2015.

Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes hit the big time in her teens when she scored her own programme – The Amanda Show – on Nickelodeon.

A string of teen films followed which you may have seen more than once or twice on TV recently – What a Girl Wants (2003), where she finds out her dad is Colin Firth who is trying to become prime minister; She’s the Man (2006), a modern take on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night; and the big-screen adaptation of the musical Hairspray.

Once touted as a young Lucille Ball, her last film role was in 2010 – the same year she tweeted: “If I don’t love something anymore I stop doing it. I don’t love acting anymore so I’ve stopped doing it.”

In the years since, she’s had more than one brush with the law for drunk driving and substance abuse, but the actress – who is now 31 – recently gave an interview saying she was now three years sober and wanted to start acting again.

Greta Garbo

Image copyrightGetty Images

“I want to be alone,” Greta Garbo was famed for saying – and in the end, she really meant it.

The actress was one of Hollywood’s most enigmatic stars in the 1930s. Desperate for privacy, she never gave any interviews, signed autographs or attended premieres – much to the frustration of the press.

She retired from acting when she was 36, saying she was “tired of Hollywood” and “wanted to live another life”.

But her early retirement and subsequent reclusiveness meant she remained eternally young on screen and in people’s minds.

Gene Hackman

After a five-decade career and Oscar wins in 1971 for The French Connection and 1992 for Unforgiven, Gene Hackman told veteran US TV host Larry King in 2004 he was retiring.

Four years later in an interview with Reuters he said although he missed acting, he didn’t want to do it any longer.

“The business for me is very stressful. The compromises that you have to make in films are just part of the beast, and it had gotten to a point where I just didn’t feel like I wanted to do it anymore,” he said.

Since he retired, he’s written three novels.

Doris Day

Image copyrightGetty Images

Doris Day was one of the biggest stars by the 1960s thanks to her double-threat singing and acting career, in films such as Calamity Jane, Pillow Talk and Move Over, Darling.

Her last film was in 1968 and after a brief stint on TV, announced she was retiring from acting in 1975.

Now 95, she has since dedicated her life to working as an animal welfare advocate, and set up the Doris Day Animal Foundation in 1978.

Foo Fighters finally headline Glastonbury

Image caption The band broke the Pyramid Stage’s midnight curfew

Foo Fighters have finally stepped onto Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage, two years after they were forced to pull out of the festival.

Days before their headline performance in 2015, Dave Grohl fell off stage and broke his leg in Gothenburg, Sweden.

“I’m about two years late tonight, I’m sorry,” said Grohl on Saturday, blaming bad traffic for the delay.

He then played a solo version of Times Like These, bringing in the band for an explosive climax.

Grohl explained the song held special significance when it came to their Glastonbury experience.

In 2015, he said, he has watched Florence + The Machine stand in for the Foo Fighters “on my laptop as I was sitting in a wheelchair with a broken leg and it looked beautiful.

“And all of a sudden, she played a Foo Fighters song – way better than we’ve ever played a Foo Fighters song, let me tell you.

“So I thought I’d come out here and start the show tonight singing that song back to Florence.”

Earlier this week, Grohl told BBC Radio 1 that playing Times Like These at Glastonbury would be “part of my recovery in a weird way.”

The band continued their set with All My Life and Learn to Fly – an exhilarating one-two punch of riff-laden rock.

“I think tonight we should just play until they kick us off the stage,” said Grohl. “You know we can do it.”

Grohl started out as the drummer in Nirvana, but these days it’s hard to imagine a time when he wasn’t a frontman.

Whether thrashing his guitar, strutting around the stage or teasing the crowd, his charisma spills over.

At one point, he sang an improvised song entirely consisting of one repeated swear word, just so he could break Adele’s record for the most obscenities said on stage at Glastonbury.

Image caption Grohl seemed to be having the night of his life

And after the band played Walk, about “learning to walk again”, he joked: “I’d like to dedicate that last song to my surgeon… my plastic surgeon.

“I went to him and I said, ‘I know I have a broken leg – but could you make me look older. And voila.”

As Grohl scrolled through a mini-history of the Foo Fighters’ hits (The Pretender, My Hero, Monkey Wench), it became clear the band have one setting: Supersonic. Even the quiet songs somehow ended up loud.

But their catchy pop-rock choruses and Grohl’s investment in his band kept the crowd on side throughout the two-and-a-quarter hour set.

Spirits didn’t even sag when drummer Taylor Hawkins stepped out from behind his kit to sing a version of Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure.

In fact, their bonhomie almost worked too well. During a pause in Best Of You, the audience picked up the song’s “woah-oh” refrain and sang it back to the band for a good three minutes.

“Would you let me finish the song, please?” pleaded Grohl. “Shhh.”

They eventually overran by 20 minutes, finishing their set just after the Pyramid Stage’s midnight curfew with a firework-assisted Everlong.

“I feel like this is the big one,” said Grohl. “I feel it’s the way it’s supposed to be.”

“Thank you so much. It was a beautiful night.”

Stormzy’s touching tribute

Elsewhere on Friday night, Solange played a mellow, subtly choreographed set on the West Holts stage.

Her performance drew heavily on last year’s hit album A Seat At The Table, a soulful, thoughtful portrayal of the struggles faced by black women throughout history.

Image caption Stormzy marked himself out as a future headliner during his Other Stage performance

British grime star Stormzy gave a powerful performance to a packed-out audience at The Other Stage.

Alongside his own hits, including Big For Your Boots and Shut Up, he played Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You – on which he provided a guest rap at this year’s Brit Awards.

“We’re going to sing for Ed right now,” he said, encouraging the audience to go and see the pop star’s headline set on Sunday night.

“We’re going to let him know we got him tomorrow.”

Stormzy also dedicated the song 100 Bags to his mum, saying she “wouldn’t be able to comprehend” her son playing to 20,000 people at Glastonbury.

“Hey, mumzy, look at your boy now,” he said.

Throughout, the star’s set embraced his mainstream appeal without diluting the fierce and dextrous wordplay that made him special in the first place.

Coming on the day that Dizzee Rascal complained no British rapper had ever headlined Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage, it marked the rapper out as the artist to break that barrier.

Katy Perry crowdsurfs at Glastonbury

Pop star Katy Perry ended her debut performance at Glastonbury by diving head first into the audience.

It was less crowd-surfing than crowd-swimming, as the singer pulled herself slowly over the heads of her fans.

“Well, Beyonce never did that,” joked one audience member as Perry emerged from the fray.

The stage dive came as the star performed Roar at the end of 60 colourful minutes of pure grade pop, including the hits Firework and ET.

The star brought something that the Pyramid Stage never usually sees – choreography – as well as glitter cannons, silver-clad backing singers, and dancers dressed as giant eyeballs.

Image caption “This makes me feel cool,” the star told the crowd

“This makes me feel cool,” remarked Perry as she observed the crowd. “I don’t really ever feel cool.”

“There’s so many people here,” she added. “I didn’t know if you still liked me.”

The comment was presumably in reference to the relatively poor performance of her new album, Witness, which entered the charts at number six last week.

In truth, most of the audience had come for the earlier hits – I Kissed A Girl, Teenage Dream, California Girls – which prompted mass sing-alongs from the younger elements of Glastonbury’s audience.

The newer material was less enthusiastically received; although a spirited rendition of Chained To The Rhythm, which saw Perry trade impromptu dance moves with a security guard, proved to be a lot of fun.

Image caption Craig David was a surprise hit on the main stage

Earlier in the day, a beaming Craig David drew Glastonbury’s biggest crowd so far; cementing his improbable comeback from pop purgatory.

Jumping between DJ turntables and the front of the stage, he tore through a set that combined his greatest hits and a raft of R&B classics, including No Scrubs and One Dance.

Clearly enjoying himself, the star rewrote his lyrics on the fly, at one point singing: “I wanna be yours, Glastonbury, and spend the whole night with you”.

As the set drew to a close, he thanked fans who had “stuck with me since 1999”, when he scored his first hit, as a guest vocalist on The Artful Dodger’s Re-Rewind (The Crowd Say Bo Selecta).

Gallagher tribute

David’s crowd was undoubtedly bolstered by Jeremy Corbyn’s supporters, who arrived to see the Labour leader give a speech and introduce the next act, US hip-hop group Run The Jewels.

Corbyn delivered the political equivalent of a greatest hits set, running through some of his key policies on immigration,. social equality and arts education; as well as quoting Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem The Masque of Anarchy.

Image caption Liam Gallagher reached out to the victims of recent events in London and Manchester

Elsewhere on Friday morning, Glastonbury hosted sets by Jools Holland, The Bootleg Beatles and up-and-coming acts The Amazons, Sigrid, Cabbage and Nadia Rose.

Liam Gallagher, appearing on The Other Stage, sang the Oasis hit Don’t Look Back In Anger for the first time ever (his brother Noel sang the original), dedicating the song to victims of Manchester and London attacks, and the Grenfell Tower fire.

US singer Maggie Rogers, who shot to fame after a video of Pharrell Williams listening to her music went viral, drew a large lunchtime crowd to the John Peel stage.

As well as the song that impressed Pharrell, Alaska, she twirled and pirouetted her way through the current single On/Off and a wonky cover of the Spice Girls’ Wannabe, with indie singer Declan McKenna.

“That one was just for me,” she joked. But the singer was clearly moved by the turnout and response to her set, wiping away tears as she thanked the audience.

Saturday night’s headliners are Foo Fighters, who take to the Pyramid Stage two years after they were initially booked.

Frontman Dave Grohl had to pull out of the show after falling off stage and breaking his leg, two weeks before the festival.

Tonight’s performance will be “a big make-up date,” he told Radio 1 this week.

“We get to headline Glastonbury but also I get to do it standing on two legs. It means a lot to me, personally. It’s part of my recovery in a weird way.”

Glastonbury: Jeremy Corbyn ‘inspired’ by young voters

E4y.net

Media captionThe Labour leader was introduced on stage by Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis

Jeremy Corbyn said he had been inspired by how many young people had got involved in politics as he addressed the crowd at the Glastonbury festival.

“Do you know, politics is actually about everyday life?” he asked the Pyramid Stage audience who had, moments earlier, been dancing to Craig David.

The Labour leader called for “a world of human rights, peace, justice and democracy all over the planet”.

The speech was watched by tens of thousands across the festival site.

At the Pyramid Stage, supporters and activists surged to the front of the crowd holding placards, and a chorus of “Oh, Jeremy Corbyn” – sung to the tune of Seven Nation Army by former Glastonbury headliners The White Stripes.

Mr Corbyn was not without his dissenters among the large crowd, with some boos heard during the speech and small pockets of the audience walking away towards the end.

But he received loud cheers for comments on equality (“We need to challenge sexism in our society, and homophobia, and any form of discrimination that goes on”) and refugees (“Let’s support them in their hour of need and not see them as a threat and danger”).

Mr Corbyn also commented on the recent election, which saw Prime Minister Theresa May’s majority cut in the House of Commons, following a vote in which the turnout among young people was reported to have increased dramatically.

“The elites got it wrong,” he said. “The politics that got out of the box is not going back in that box”.

He added that he was “inspired” by the number of young voters who got involved for the first time.

That the Labour leader was given a rock star welcome was, perhaps, unsurprising at the overwhelmingly left-leaning music festival.

Organiser Michael Eavis, who invited Mr Corbyn to appear, introduced him on stage, saying: “At last we have a leader to put in place all the issues we’ve been campaigning for for 40 years”.

The festival, which is run as a non-profit event, supports causes including Greenpeace, Oxfam and WaterAid.

Artists appearing at the festival have spoken of their support of Mr Corbyn’s politics, while Friday night’s headliners Radiohead commented during their set: “See you later, Theresa. Just shut the door on your way out.”

Rapper Dizzee Rascal told the BBC he was a fan: “He comes across quite genuine. It seems like he’s fought for a lot of good causes.”

“I don’t really want to get into politics,” added Mike Kerr of rock group Royal Blood, “but he seems like someone who speaks for, particularly, my generation of people. He seems like someone that represents us.”

The cheapest pint at Glastonbury

E4y.net

Revellers at the first ever Glastonbury in 1970 each got a free pint of milk. Nearly 50 years on, it’s still delivered direct to people’s tents – but it costs £1.20 a pint.

Much of the milk comes from the Eavis’s own cows; and providing a link between the festival and Worthy Farm’s real business.

Greg Newman has been volunteering on the milk float for 12 years. He took the BBC on one of his rounds.

Dizzee Rascal: ‘I should be headlining Glastonbury’

Dizzee Rascal says he deserves to be given top billing at the Glastonbury Festival.

“I’ve toured this festival for years, never disappointed,” he told the BBC. “You can always count on me.

“I’m basically at the stage where they need to make me headline this thing – because they ain’t had no British rappers headline this festival.”

As if to prove his point, the star drew huge crowds to his set on The West Holts stage on Friday.

Running through hits including Fix U, Look Sharp, Bonkers and new single Space, he provided a raucous counterpart to Radiohead’s more cerebral set on the Pyramid Stage.

Dizzee’s appearance put him at the top of the bill on the festival’s third-biggest stage, and grime collective Boy Better Know will headline the second-biggest Other Stage on Sunday.

But the star asked why US rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West had been made main stage headliners ahead of their British counterparts.

“I’ve been on the main stage, but I need to headline the whole ting,” he said.

“I’ve got 15 years of bangers. I’m confident I would tear it up.”

However, he was careful not to be critical of Glastonbury, where he has delivered crowd-pleasing sets for more than a decade.

“It’s the biggest festival you could do,” he said. “It’s a privilege.”

Dr Luke and Kesha’s mum reportedly drop lawsuits against each other

E4y.net

Dr Luke and Kesha’s mum, Pebe Sebert, have reportedly agreed to drop defamation lawsuits against each other.

The music producer had accused Serbert of “tortious interference” (legal speak for wrongful interference) in the contract between himself and Kesha.

Serbert responded to Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, by suing him as well.

The term defamation is used to describe when the good reputation of someone is damaged.

For years Kesha has tried to get out of a record deal with Dr Luke, claiming he sexually assaulted her, which he has always denied.

Kesha and her mum

In a joint statement released by Dr Luke’s representatives, both parties agree to drop the claims, meaning that there’s now only one legal battle between Kesha and Luke.

The pair say, according to reports: “Dr Luke vigorously disputes and denies that he ever raped Kesha Sebert, and he is asserting claims of defamation in a New York court against Kesha Sebert for making statements to the contrary, which statements Dr Luke adamantly maintains are false.

“Pebe admits she has no firsthand personal knowledge of the events occurring on the night of the alleged rape. Pebe was not present that night. At that time, Pebe was in Nashville, and Kesha was in Los Angeles.

“The dispute between Kesha and Dr Luke about the events of that night is the subject of the New York case, and will be decided in that case. Accordingly, all parties believe it is appropriate to dismiss this Tennessee case and focus their attention on the New York case.”

Image caption Dr Luke and Kesha appeared together on stage in 2011 with Adam Lambert and Max Martin

The sexual assault claims will go ahead in New York.

Kesha claims the 43-year-old drugged, sexually abused and psychologically tormented her. He denies those claims.

The allegations date back to 2005, soon after she signed with him, when she was 18.

Radiohead mesmerise fans at Glastonbury with a wayward, but compelling, set

Absorbing, challenging and achingly beautiful – Radiohead delivered a typically Radiohead sort of set for Glastonbury’s opening night.

The Oxford quintet emerged, bathed in white light, to the haunting piano refrain of Daydreaming, from last year’s A Moon Shaped Pool album.

Two hours and 25 songs later, they closed with Karma Police, singing: “For a minute there, I lost myself.”

It felt like a perfect metaphor for the band’s power to transport an audience.

The performance came on the 20th anniversary of Radiohead’s first headline set at Glastonbury.

That show, which took place just weeks after they released OK Computer, has often been called the festival’s best ever.

However, frontman Thom Yorke recently told BBC 6 Music he had been on the verge of walking off the stage, after the band’s monitors exploded, meaning they could not hear each other.

“I just went over to Ed [O’Brien, guitarist] and said, ‘I’m off mate, see you later,'” he recalled.

“He turned around and went, ‘If you do, you’ll probably live the rest of your life regretting it.’ I went, ‘Good point.'”

There were no such problems on Friday night, as the band embarked on a career-spanning set that held their experimental and anthemic qualities in perfect balance.

Airbag was thrilling, Pyramid Song devastating, and Everything In It’s Right Place a pulsing, twisted Radiohead version of a club classic.

They even pulled out the much-maligned Creep – the angsty, teenage anthem that gave them early success, but became a millstone around their necks as they matured into a fearlessly experimental art-rock outfit.

Image copyrightGetty Images

Things got political – briefly – during No Surprises, where the lyric “bring down the government, they don’t speak for us,” elicited a huge cheer from the festival’s left-leaning audience.

As the song ended, Yorke commented: “See you later, Theresa. Just shut the door on your way out.”

That aside, the frontman rarely spoke during the set, except to thank Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis “for having us at your lovely farm today”.

“Thank you very much for coming to this field to listen to us this evening,” he added during the encore.

“Probably we’ll see you in some other fields over the weekend.”

Radiohead were preceded on the Pyramid Stage by indie-dance band The xx, whose spiralling, hypnotic songs soundtracked dusk on Worthy Farm.

Immediately before them, rock group Royal Blood celebrated with champagne on stage as their second album, How Did We Get So Dark, entered the charts at number one.

Speaking to the BBC, singer Mike Kerr said the band were bowled over by the two events converging.

“We definitely have a sense that this is a one-off thing. It’s something I’ll look back on as a very special time.”

Elsewhere on Friday, there were sets from Sleaford Mods, Clean Bandit, Dizzee Rascal, The Lemon Twigs and Flaming Lips.

On The Other Stage, pop star Lorde began her set “trapped” inside a clear plastic box that tilted back-and-forth above her band.

Once she emerged onto the stage, she dedicated a recently-released song, The Louvre, to anyone in the audience who was harbouring a secret crush.

“Shut your eyes and listen to the song, and just will it to happen,” she said. “Maybe they will kiss you tonight. Who knows?”

Actor Bradley Cooper appeared on the Pyramid Stage to film a scene for his new movie, a remake of the musical A Star Is Born.

He then introduced Kris Kristofferson, who was watched from the side of the stage by fellow Hollywood star Brad Pitt.

Johnny Depp also joined the singer-songwriter, who was 81 yesterday, playing guitar on one of the songs.

Depp caused controversy on Thursday, as he joked about assassinating Donald Trump during an appearance at Glastonbury. He has since apologised.

Former footballer David Beckham also made his first visit to Glastonbury, to help organiser Michael Eavis launch a new social housing project.

He planted a tree at the development in the nearby village of Pilton, before heading to the event with his 18-year-old son, Brooklyn.

If they stick around until Saturday, they will see acts including Stormzy, Katy Perry, Liam Gallagher and headliners the Foo Fighters.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will also appear on the Pyramid Stage to introduce US rap act Run The Jewels.
