John Corbett Regrets Acting Career, Calls It ‘Unfulfilling’

John Corbett, known for his roles in ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding,’ recently opened up about his career regrets. Speaking on the ‘Fly on the Wall’ podcast with David Spade and Dana Carvey, the 63-year-old actor admitted that he feels unfulfilled in his acting career and believes he chose the wrong path.

Career Reflections and Regrets

Corbett shared his frustration with the lack of creative control in his roles. He described the acting process as being told what to do constantly, likening it to waiting in a doctor’s office. Despite his success and financial stability, he feels creatively stifled, having never contributed to writing or creating content.

Admiration for Creative Collaborators

Corbett expressed admiration for actors like Emma Stone, who actively participate in the creative process of their projects. He contrasted his own experiences, where he felt more like a puppet rather than a collaborator. Corbett’s career in television required quick decisions and left little room for creative input.

Personal Life and Future Plans

Now content to stay at home with his wife, Bo Derek, Corbett is selective about future projects. He reprised his role as Aidan Shaw in the latest season of ‘And Just Like That…’ and hinted at a potential return for season three. Despite his dissatisfaction with his career, Corbett praised his co-star Sarah Jessica Parker and enjoyed working with her.

As John Corbett reflects on his career, he faces the question of whether he will continue in the industry or find new avenues for creative fulfillment. How will his insights influence aspiring actors? Can the industry offer more collaborative opportunities for actors like Corbett? The future remains uncertain.
