(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – In intriguing remarks, John Corbett, a well-known actor celebrated for his roles in “Sex and the City” and “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” recently expressed regret about his career choice.

During an appearance on David Spade and Dana Carvey’s “Fly on the Wall podcast,” Corbett reflected on his three decades in the film industry, declaring, “it’s been unfulfilling.”

Despite his considerable success, he shared that his profession has not brought him happiness.

“Look, I’m in the fourth quarter of the football game now, in life and in showbiz,” Corbett said, signaling a poignant realization about his career trajectory.

“So I can reveal now I picked the fucking wrong thing to do with my life,” he added.

From an early age, Corbett felt controlled on set, which contributed to his discontent.

“I picked something to do with my whole life for my fulfillment of my work life, which is, ‘Dude, stand here, say this, put this on, look this way, say it faster, cut your hair like this,” the actor said.

He likened himself to a puppet, manipulated by others’ commands.

Highlighting the extent of his frustration, Corbett likened his experience on set to an agonizing wait in a doctor’s office.

“For me, that’s what making a movie is like, because I’m not part of any creative process,” he said, underscoring his feeling of exclusion from the creative aspects of filmmaking.

In contrast, Corbett noted Emma Stone’s involvement in her projects like “Cruella,” and “Poor Things,” expressing envy over the creative opportunities afforded to her.

“I’m just telling you, I made a lot of money. I live in a beautiful home… I’m a friend of the world. But as far as a fulfilling creative work life, I didn’t write one fucking line. I didn’t write one joke to make people laugh. So it’s been unfulfilling on that level,” the actor explained.

“You know, there were some good times here and there, but most of it’s sitting, waiting for them to f****** knock on your door to go, ‘Hey, we need you to come back and say that thing again,’” he said, painting a picture of the tedium and passivity of his daily routine.

Corbett’s acting journey began with his acclaimed role in the 1990s show, “Northern Exposure,” and he gained further fame as Sarah Jessica Parker’s romantic counterpart in “Sex and the City.” He also returned for the series spinoff, “And Just Like That.”

Additionally, Corbett has been featured in “Parenthood” and “To All the Boys,” among various other projects, compiling an extensive list of credits over his career.
