James Gandolfini: 'I'm not interested in Hollywood blockbusters'

James Gandolfini has revealed that he has little interest in starring in Hollywood blockbusters.

The actor has largely taken on independent films since the end of The Sopranos in 2007, earning praise for his performances in Welcome to the Rileys and new picture Not Fade Away.

In an interview with The AP, Gandolfini explained why he is now gravitating towards smaller movies.

"I'm much more comfortable doing smaller things. I like them," he told the news service.

He added: "I like the way they're shot; they're shot quickly. It's all about the scripts - that's what it is - and I'm getting some interesting little scripts."

Gandolfini went on to say that his personal preference is to maintain a sense of mystery about his acting process.

"People don't know and they shouldn't know that you work incredibly hard as an actor," he explained. "It is an odd way to make a living. Putting somebody else's pants on and pretending to be somebody else is occasionally, as you grow older, horrifying."

His new film Not Fade Away is his latest collaboration with Sopranos creator David Chase.

Not Fade Away is story of a young man (John Magaro) who falls in love and dreams of becoming a rock star in the 1960s. The movie is now playing in the US. Watch a trailer below:
