Steve Martin says comments about retirement are “exaggerated” as he plans to stay busy in his career

Steve Martin has revised previous comments he made about his retirement plans.

The 77-year-old actor first told The Hollywood Reporter last month that he had no immediate career plans beyond his current stint on the Hulu show Only Murders in the Building, where he plays Charles-Haden Savage.

“Once this television show is done, I won’t be looking for others,” said Martin, who appears on the series with longtime confidants Martin Short and Selena Gomez. “I will not look for other films. I don’t want to make cameos. Oddly enough, that’s it.”

Martin said last week that his underlying message was “a bit exaggerated” as it meant he was happy with his current project list.

“They asked me, ‘Are you thinking about retirement?'” the Parenthood actor told E! News correspondent Laverne Cox on the red carpet at the Emmys alongside Short. “I said, ‘Well, that’s it. I’m doing a TV show, I’ve got a book out and I’m touring with it [Martin Short]. This is sort of my retirement – ​​this is what it will look like.”

Referring to her many collaborations, Short added: “I can’t imagine him ever retiring, I hope not because then you know what happens to me.”

In his interview with THR, Martin said he has “a family life that’s really fun” and limits his schedule.

“I’m not ready to do a film now, to live somewhere else,” he said. ‘I can’t go away for three months.’

The Planes, Trains & Automobiles star noted how his wife Anne Stringfield “keeps saying, ‘You always say you’re going to retire, and then you always come up with something.'”

Martin added: “I’m really not interested in retiring. I’m not. But I would just work a little less. Maybe.’
