Gervais Finally Feels Like A 'Proper Actor'
THE OFFICE star RICKY GERVAIS felt like a "proper actor" for the first time when he teamed up with BEN STILLER to star in new movie NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM.
The Golden Globe winner, who has largely shunned Hollywood in the past, initially refused invitations to star in the project - but changed his mind when the money on offer became impossible to turn down.
And when he came to shoot his final scene in the comedy, he realised how much he had improved as an actor - and wants to push himself further by accepting more roles.
He says, "When I filmed my final scene in this film it was the first time in my life that I actually felt like a proper actor. I welled up.
"I'm definitely going to work on more movies. This is the life for me."
