Actor Christoph Waltz is considering abandoning his Hollywood home renovations because they are taking far too long.

The Django Unchained star bought a home in Los Angeles a few years ago, but he still hasn't moved in and he's beginning to think a house in the hills is not in his future.

He explains, "I bought a house three years ago and I'm still renovating. Everybody described to me (sic), 'Yes, it's a nightmare, it takes a long time...' It's a hundred times worse."

"I'm close to (abandoning it) because sooner or later you say, 'Am I doing this for the rest of my life or can I move in?' I have no idea, it's beyond me."
