‘It wasn’t worth it’: Why Tom Selleck took a three-year break at the peak of his career

Tom Selleck has made a name for himself in Hollywood with an impressive CV to boot, known for his roles in Magnum PI, Blue Bloods and Friends.

Despite becoming a household name, Selleck has learned that family always comes first.

While his career was thriving, starring as the lead for Magnum PI, Selleck made the sudden decision to take a break from acting.

The decision came out of Selleck’s desire to step back from the Hollywood lifestyle.

“I quit Magnum, not because I didn’t like it or I was tired of it,” Selleck told People magazine.

“I was tired from it, And I wanted a three-dimensional life because I didn’t have one.”

Selleck has since revealed that the decision came after his daughter, Hannah, was hospitalised with viral pneumonia, People reports. 

“I got off that train,” he told People in a recent interview as he promotes his upcoming memoir.

The star had, at the time, signed on to star in the 1992 film Christopher Columbus: The Discovery. He committed to the film but missed a lot of the preparation while his daughter was receiving treatment. 

“I had agreed to do the picture because Marlon Brando was in it,” Selleck told People. 

“I missed all the rehearsal and everything. We got Hannah home, and then I went, but I didn’t like that.”

After the film, despite having the opportunity to work with Brando, Selleck says “it wasn’t worth it”.

“It was never going to be worth it,” Selleck told People.

“And I said, this is crazy. I quit Magnum really, to have a family, and now I’m jumping at every movie that comes along.” 

This realisation sparked a self-imposed three year hiatus for the star in which time he prioritised time with family.

Reflecting on the time off with People in 2020, Selleck said that he “put up” with reporting that he had “disappeared” and that ultimately the “big lull” in his career helped the star “put a lot of things in perspective”.

Today the actor is balancing time with family with his work on the police series Blue Bloods.

He is living with his wife, Jillie, on their ranch in Ventura, California.

“I’ve always treasured the balance between work and time with my family. It’s always about them,” he told People.

‘Shameful’: Sydney Sweeney reacts to producer’s negative comments

Actress Sydney Sweeney has hit back at comments from film producer Carol Baum who said Sweeney is “not pretty” and “she can’t act.”

In a statement to E! News on April 17, a representative for Sweeney commented, “How sad that a woman in the position to share her expertise and experience chooses instead to attack another woman.

“If that’s what she’s learned in her decades in the industry and feels is appropriate to teach to her students, that’s shameful.”

“To unjustly disparage a fellow female producer speaks volumes about Ms. Baum’s character.”

Baum, who was a producer on films such as Fly Away Home, Father of the Bride and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, made the comments during a conversation with the audience after a screening of her 1988 film Dead Ringers on April 11.

Speaking with New York Times film critic Janet Maslin before an audience of fans, the director said.

“There’s an actress who everybody loves now, Sydney Sweeney… I don’t get Sydney Sweeney.”

Baum explained that she began watching Sweeney’s recent film Anyone But You but eventually found it “unwatchable”.

She recalled asking her class USC School of Cinematic Arts where she teaches, “I said to my class, ‘Explain this girl to me. She’s not pretty, she can’t act. Why is she so hot?'”

Maslin, who moderated the talk, later took to X, formerly Twitter after the backlash, explaining, ”We brought up Anyone But You because it’s been the rare smash hit rom-com at a time when they aren’t working. Not because we wanted to take cheap shots at anyone.”

Many came to Sweeney’s defence after the comments were first revealed, with Teddy Schwarzman, a producer on Sweeney’s new film Immaculate, writing on X formerly Twitter, “I’ll enlighten Ms. Baum that two-time Emmy nominee Sydney Sweeney is not only one of the most talented actresses I’ve worked with, but also incredibly smart, kind and humble.

“I’m not sure why someone who claims to still be a producer would make such terribly ugly comments.”

In a statement to CNN, the singer said, “As you know, I am so close with my mom and dad, so I am looking forward to being an amazing parent to our child, like they were to me and my sister. Nelly and I are so excited to welcome and love on Baby Haynes.” (Nelly’s real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr.)

Ashanti attended the MTV VMA Awards around that time, where Nelly was a scheduled performer. She carried a clutch with a photo of her and Nelly from when they attended the awards ceremony together back in 2003.

During an interview with E! News at the event, Ashanti said she thought the bag was “cute” and was asked if she and the Hot in Here star were in a relationship again.

After some laughing, she responded coyly with, “I mean…yeah.”

Nelly also came clean during an appearance with Love and Hip Hop Atlanta stars Rasheeda and Kirk Frost on her Boss Moves with Rasheeda show last fall.
