(Viggo was terrified of life after pupation)

ZOMG, VIGGO MORTENSEN IS RETIRING!, reports every other site in the world.  All apparently based on this quote:

“I have no plans to do another movie. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m open to seeing how I feel in a while, but right now I’m not saying yes to anything.”

I wouldn’t even bother reporting this if a thousand other sites hadn’t put VIGGO MORTENSEN TO RETIRE FROM ACTING in big headline text.  Jeez, guys, at least have the journalistic integrity to put a question mark at the end.  (That’s a joke, MTV).  Key phrase: “I’m open to seeing how I feel in a while,” “right now I’m not saying yes…”  Point being, he never said he was retiring.  Being burnt out and taking a vacation is not the same thing as retiring.  To put this in movie blogger terms so that you guys will understand, Viggo is simply saying, “I’m really exhausted from all this photoshopping Paula Abdul on top of Mexicans.  I need to take a jerk break and the cats could use a-pettin’.”  In conclusion, CROTCH FIGHT!
