John Corbett chose the "wrong" career path because he feels life as an actor has been "unfulfilling".

The 'Sex and The City' star has worked in front of the camera since the 1980s landing roles in films such as 'Serendipity', 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' and 'Raising Helen', but John is adamant he would prefer to be in a more "creative" job.

During an appearance on the 'Fly on the Wall with Dana Carvey and David Spade' podcast, John, 63, explained: "Look, I’m in the fourth quarter of the football game now, in life and in showbiz. It’s just a fact. So I can reveal now I picked the f****** wrong thing to do with my life.

"I’ve made a lot of money. I live in a beautiful home. People come to me at every restaurant I go in. I’m a friend of the world ... [But] I didn’t write one f****** line. I didn’t write one joke to make people laugh. So it’s been unfulfilling on that level."

John went on to compare life as an actor to waiting for an appointment in a doctor's office. He explained: "I’m not collaborating with the writers. Have you ever sat in a waiting room of a doctor’s office for like an hour and been like, 'What the f***?'

"For me, that’s what making a movie is like, because I’m not part of any creative process."

John - who won a legion of fans for his role as Aidan in 'Sex and The City' - went on to insist he prefers working in TV to movies. He added: "I’m not a movie actor … I’m really a television actor and so that has to move quick and that guy’s got to make a million decisions. And we’re not shucking and jiving and going out for wine after.'"

John concluded by insisting he now only picks projects he thinks are going to be "really, really fun".

The actor has been in a relationship with fellow screen star Bo Derek for more than two decades, but they only got married in 2020 and decided to keep the news private.

During an episode of US TV show 'The Talk' in 2021, John confirmed the pair had tied the knot. He said: "We're pretty private people, we didn't make an announcement, all our friends and family knew but this is the first time either one of us has said anything publicly about it because really we haven't had an opportunity. So, you're my buddy and now I guess I'm telling all of America, or the world ...

"After 20 years we decided to get married, we didn't want 2020 to be that thing that everybody looks back at and hated. We thought, 'Well, let's get one nice thing out of it'."
