John Corbett Says ‘It’s Been Unfulfilling’ as an Actor in Hollywood


John Corbett would have done things differently in his career looking back.

The actor, 63, said it’s been “unfulfilling” being a TV actor and that he chose the “wrong” career path in a recent interview on the Fly on the Wall with Dana Carvey and David Spade podcast.

“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,” Corbett said.

“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,” the actor continued. “But as far as a fulfilling creative work life, 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.”

Corbett mentioned Emma Stone as someone he admires as an actor who is also involved in the creative process of putting a project together, after producing the films Poor Things and Kinds of Kindness, in collaboration with director Yorgos Lanthimos.

“I’m not collaborating with the writers,” Corbett explained. “… 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.”

“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,” he added. “And so I’m just at this point in my life … if something seems really, really fun, I’ll say yes.”

Corbett’s comments come after his appearance in season two of And Just Like That… in which he reprised his role as Carrie Bradshaw’s love interest Aidan Shaw from the Sex and the City TV series in 2023.

During the season, Aidan and Carrie (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) got back together and moved into a new home in New York following Aidan’s divorce. The couple’s romance was put in jeopardy, however, by the finale episode as Shaw needed to leave the city for at least five years to tend to his youngest son, Wyatt.

In May, Corbett was photographed back on set filming scenes with Parker, 59, in New York City for season three of the show.
