Attenborough Dismisses Health Fears

LORD RICHARD ATTENBOROUGH has downplayed reports his health is fading - insisting he has no plans to quit acting for good.
The 85-year-old Oscar winner remains in hospital in London five months after a fall at his London home left him in a coma.
The veteran star is now on the road to recovery, but was recently forced to pull out of his role in historical movie Ironclad until his health improves.
But Attenborough is adamant his film career is far from over - and he will be back on the big screen as soon as he feels well enough.
He says in a statement, "I wish to make it clear that I am very much alive and kicking. To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports regarding the demise of my career have been greatly exaggerated. It remains my intention to take up offers."
Attenborough was due to tackle his 74th film role this summer (09), alongside Robert Carlyle, James Purefoy and Pete Postlethwaite.
