Hollywood actor Bryan Cranston has been in the acting game for many years now, playing some interesting characters in some impressive projects over the years. With that said, it is probably fair to say that Bryan Cranston's biggest and best role to date was as Walter White in the hugely successful television series Breaking Bad, which led to him becoming a household name around the world.
Before making the decision to try to forge a career for himself as an actor in Hollywood, Bryan Cranston was training to become a police officer, while also taking some acting classes. Bryan has now revealed that the moment that made him decide to give up on a career as a police officer to focus on acting came after he had to kiss a girl as part of an acting exercise.
Cranston told The Guardian, "I asked the teacher: 'Should we kiss, or just pretend?' He was disgusted by my question. So I thought, 'Ok, I hope she's not offended, but I'm really gonna kiss her'. And it starts - and before I can even begin, she is on me. Open mouth, tongue, hands everywhere. It's very exciting. (Afterwards I asked her) 'Would you like to get some lunch sometime?' And she looked at me like I was a lost little puppy: 'Oh, no, no, I have a boyfriend.' And I thought: Oh, my God, that was acting! My head was spinning. That's when it clicked. She was just doing her job. And I realised this could be my work: to kiss girls! So I said: 'So long, police work.'"
It was a very wise move by Bryan Cranston, who has gone on to have a hugely successful acting career to date. Bryan can next be seen on the big screen, starring in the movie Godzilla, which co-stars Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Ken Watanabe, to name just a few. Godzilla is directed by Gareth Edwards and will open on May 16 in both the US and the UK.
