“Breaking Bad” star plans his retirement
Bryan Cranston wants to retire in a few years. However, it is not yet clear whether he wants to stop completely.
Bryan Cranston (67) is thinking about retiring. For the star from series like “Breaking Bad” and “Malcolm in the middle” there are still all kinds of projects, but he wants to part with many tasks in about three years. He explains his decision in conversation with the British edition of the men’s magazine “GQ”.
Cranston wants to live in France for his wife
According to the article, he will say goodbye in 2026, at least for the time being. The actor therefore wants to close his production company, sell his shares in the company Dos Hombres and get away with his wife Robin Dearden (69), to whom he has been married since 1989. The US couple wants to move to another country for at least half a year – probably later France.
For the past 24 years, Dearden has lived a life that has been shaped entirely by him. “She was the plus one, she was the wife of a star. She had to rotate and arrange her life based on mine,” says Cranston. Of course, she also had a tremendous benefit from everything, but the lives of the two partners were not balanced as a result. “I want to make up for that. She deserves it.” The plan is to live in a small village, learn the language and cook, or plant a garden.
Bryan Cranston doesn’t want to think about work
“I want to have that experience,” says Cranston. He wants to go on day trips, drink wine with new friends and no longer read screenplays. Cranston intends to leave work – also as an actor – during this time: “No, it’s a break, it’s a stop, I won’t start [Arbeit] think. I won’t take phone calls.” Who knows, if Cranston likes this life in a small French village, he’ll eventually return to Hollywood. He’ll be at least 70 by then, too.
From June 15, Cranston will be seen in “Asteroid City” in cinemas, alongside other stars such as Scarlett Johansson (38), Margot Robbie (32) and Tom Hanks (66). Then comes “Argylle” with, among others, Henry Cavill (40), Samuel L. Jackson (74) and Bryce Dallas Howard (42). And already at the beginning of the year Cranston revealed to E! Newsthat he would be open to doing some sort of Malcolm in the Middle reunion movie. The whole thing is apparently still on the table, as he is now implying. He was curious how the family from the series looked 20 years later: “What happened to them? Where are they? What are the children doing? They are grown men now.”
