Neve Campbell On Why She Disappeared From Hollywood: 'I Needed A Minute'

Neve Campbell hit Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show on Tuesday (July 10) and revealed why she traded the peak of her Scream fame in America for anonymity in London.

“I just needed a minute,” the 44-year-old actress said, laughing. “It was a long minute. It was a good minute.”

“In my twenties, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming— wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it,” Neve continued. “But it got to a level also where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the kinds of things I want to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films. Or bad romantic comedies. I just wasn’t interested in the scripts and I was feeling a bit unhappy with the things that were coming to me. And I was feeling a little bored with the whole thing. I thought, ‘I want a change.’ So, I moved to London.”

Neve also talks about starring in her new movie Skyscraper – Watch the interview below!
