Rabat – Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly said that he aspires to be an actor in Hollywood after his retirement from football.
Ronaldo explained that he would be happy to begin with small roles and work to acquire acting skills, learning from professional actors, “I would not be a lead, no,” he said. “I would do small roles. I like to learn, to be surrounded by good actors, but that is the only way you learn.”
The 31-year-old footballer went on to express his desire to turn to acting and how he plans to succeed.
“It is an area we do not know much about, it has nothing to do with football, but I believe with some training I could make it there,” he said. “I am sure that sooner or later I will be in a cast for a film, no doubt. But to play a small role to start, to pick up experience. Then to shine more in the future.”
Ronaldo aims to develop a career outside of sports and prove that he is more than footballer.
“I have the chance, thanks to God, to choose only what I like,” he said. “I love the world of fashion, so it’s not strange I have my own line of shirts, boxer-shorts, perfume, headphones, and more things will come out soon.”
The Real Madrid superstar expressed delight at the growth of his brand and many projects.
“I am happy as these projects are growing more and more. After football, I now have an idea what will do. Maybe my brand will keep growing in different areas — shoes, trousers, films et cetera.”
