Los Angeles - Hugh Grant is "pretty much finished" with acting.

The 51-year-old star doesn't take on many film projects anymore and says he doesn't like the process of appearing in front of the camera anymore.

He said: "I'm pretty much finished. Occasionally something tickles my fancy, otherwise I'm fine.

"I'm still not very keen on acting. I don't do much work, but I like aspects of it. I like the camaraderie with people you are working with. But actually standing in front of a camera, no I don't love that."

The British star also says he tries to give realistic advice to people who ask him about acting.

He added to Britain's OK! magazine: "I get a lot of cousins and friends asking me for advice, saying, 'I want to be an actor.' It's this disease that some people get, it's weird. Sometimes they are incredibly talented, and sometimes, they have no talent whatsoever, and I don't know what to tell them or their parents.

"The saddest thing in the world is to see someone going on in their late thirties or forties still struggling to play a carrot on a TV commercial.

"For some people, they have to do it, they are so stage struck."
