Nighy: 'Actors Should Accept Attention'

British actor BILL NIGHY is appalled by Hollywood stars who constantly bemoan press attention, insisting public adoration is all part of being a screen icon.

THE CONSTANT GARDENER actor is baffled by celebrities who resent their fame, insisting it is the key to success.

The 56-year-old says, "Sometimes in confined spaces the attention can get difficult.

"But I'm not complaining. I should be so lucky. As an actor it would be odd to complain about such things.

"You can't turn around and say, 'Stop looking at me.' As an actor you've volunteered for that job."
