Considine's Love/hate Relationship With Acting

British actor PADDY CONSIDINE is constantly tempted to walk away from acting, because he hates the way films are made. Considine, who has appeared in a string of films including The Bourne Ultimatum, Hot Fuzz and Cinderella Man, claims knowing what goes on behind the scenes of movies destroys the magic for him. He says, "I have a love/hate relationship with acting. Sometimes I want to do it and other times I can't bear it. "Once you see the mechanics, it can put you off sometimes - behind the curtain there's not a big wizard, just a load of f**kin' producers."
