Jean Dujardin - Jean Dujardin's Accidental Success

Jean Dujardin believes his career is a ''happy accident''.

The French star - who won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in silent film 'The Artist' - admits he never considered working in movies after a career as a stand-up comic and on the television.

He said: ''I didn't think about cinema. It could've ended at the cabaret stage. But I crossed over, and happy accidents kept happening. I never stopped working. But it was never a career plan.''

However, the 39-year-old hunk is keen to stick to his French roots despite his success because to ask for more success would be ''indecent''.

He added to Britain's Marie Claire magazine: ''I've always been put into boxes with labels on them. What's funny is to make fools out of people. And not to stagnate in just one role - that's the essential thing. If there was a nice project I will star in an American film, but I don't have the fantasy, that dream.

''To make movies in France is huge enough. It would be indecent to ask for more.''
