Jack Black is 'pretty much done' with his career

Jack Black is "pretty much done" with his career.

The 'Kung Fu Panda 3' star is almost ready to turn his back on the spotlight, once he has made a "couple more" movies and more albums with his rock group Tenacious D.

Asked if he has any more ambitions to fulfill, he said: "No, I'm pretty much done. I just want to have some fun. I have a couple more albums to write with Kyle. A couple more movies maybe. Then ride off into the sunset."

Instead, the 46-year-old star is more interested in stepping behind the camera.

He said: "Maybe I'll be a painter or an animator. I'm a real doodler. I enjoy producing. Getting involved in stuff I'm not in. Putting on the show without being in the show. That's sort of where I'm headed.

And Jack - who has sons Sammy, nine, and Tommy, eight, with wife Tanya Haden - admitted even his own kids aren't big fans of his work.

He told Waitrose Weekend: "I don't really force my movies on the boys. They like them but I think they'd like them more if I wasn't in them. They did enjoy this one ['Kung Fu Panda 3'] though. They just wouldn't ever admit it. They love Will Ferrell. But I haven't told him that. Maybe he'll read this."
