Michael Keaton Says It's a 'Good Thing' He Didn't Quit Hollywood

Michael Keaton Says It's a 'Good Thing' He Didn't Quit Hollywood

Michael Keaton suits up for the cover of Haute Living‘s July/August 2016 issue, provided exclusively to JustJared.com.

Here is what the 64-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On a Beetlejuice sequel: “I hear this all the time. People know more than I do, and they come up to me all the time and go, ‘So Beetlejuice is happening’ and I have no idea… So is the latest that it’s not happening?”

On not quitting Hollywood: “It’s a good thing I didn’t quit because [everything] comes around again. I’ve heard this happen to people—not just in show business—[where] all of a sudden, you get interested in work. I like that my opportunities are there now that weren’t there before. I’ve always had offers, but there were certain periods where the offers weren’t necessarily great, or some were really good but I was picky and choosy about them. Most of the time, I made decent choices. I look back at certain films [though] and I have no idea. [If someone said] ‘Tell me why you did that movie or I’ll pull the trigger,’ I would say ‘Pull the trigger, because I have no idea.’”

On turning down roles to be a dad: “[I had] little costs here and there. I was really an attentive father because I think that’s your job. I don’t deserve any credit for it; it’s what you’re supposed to do.”
