English actor Martin Freeman is about to become one of the most recognisable people on the planet, as The Hobbit prepares to be released worldwide. However, Martin has admitted that, no matter what the critics have to say about his performance and the film, he knows his biggest critic will be himself.
Freeman explained to the Radio Times, “The main thing I'm focusing on, is that I want to be good in the films. 'Cause I've made a few films that only 300 people have seen, but at least I'm proud of them. And I wouldn't have unmade them because they didn't make money.”
He added, “So my first judge, my first critic, is me, as with most of us who are creative about what we do. And I want to like The Hobbit. And of course I want zillions of other people to like it too.”
Martin then went on to talk about how he expects his life to change once The Hobbit trilogy is released worldwide. He continued, “At the moment I can go places in the world where I'm unmolested, and that's kinda cool. Whereas there won't be anywhere in the world where this trilogy isn't shown, I guess.”
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to be released in the UK on December 13 and then in the US on December 14.
