Goldberg Retires From Acting
Comedienne WHOOPI GOLDBERG has announced she is retiring from acting to concentrate on her broadcasting career.
The Oscar-winning star, 52, who replaced Rosie O'Donnell on long-running daytime show The View last month (Sep07), insists there's "no room" for her in Hollywood anymore - because there are younger, more glamorous actresses taking all the jobs.
Goldberg, who has made more than 40 films in her career, winning an Oscar for her role in Ghost, claims she has no choice but to retire from movies - because she never gets sent scripts anymore.
She tells U.S. chat show host Larry King, "You know, there's no room for the very talented Whoopi. There's no room right now in the marketplace of cinema."
