Bryan Cranston said he'll retire from acting in 2026.
The "Breaking Bad" star wants to spend time with his wife over 30 years, Robin Dearden.
Cranston plans to move to France to "drink wine with new friends and not read scripts."
But the 67-year-old star has said that he's ready to retire from acting in 2026, which some might find surprising, but it's worth noting that Cranston has racked up 167 acting credits since his career started back in 1980.
Cranston told GQ in an interview published Thursday that he wants to spend more time with his wife, Robin Dearden, who has had to "pivot" her life around his career for years.
"I want to change the paradigm once again. For the last 24 years, Robin has led her life holding onto my tail," said the actor. "She's been the plus one, she's been the wife of a celebrity. She's had to pivot and adjust her life based on mine. She has tremendous benefit from it, but we're uneven. I want to level that out. She deserves it."
The Emmy award-winning star said he plans to move to France with his wife, with the article noting that Cranston intends to sell his half of Dos Hombres, the mezcal company he owns with "Breaking Bad" costar and close friend Aaron Paul, as well as shut down his production company, Moonshot Entertainment.
This is all so that Cranston and Dearden can genuinely relax by the fire, drink wine, and "not read scripts," the star said.
"I want to have that experience. I want to go for day trips and have the fire in the fireplace and drink wine with new friends and not read scripts," he said. "It's not going to be like, 'Oh, I'll read and see what I'm going to do.' No, it's a pause. It's a stop."
Cranston added: "It's about taking a chance. I'm used to that feeling — of not knowing."
