Rocker Jon Bon Jovi will never act again - because he finds the audition process too tough.
The singer has starred in films including Pay It Forward and U-571, and made guest appearances on U.S. TV shows The West Wing, Sex and the City and Ally MCBeal.
Bon Jovi was recently lined up to appear in cop drama Criminal Minds, but he turned the project down and his role was handed to another rocker, Gavin Rossdale, instead.
And the singer is adamant he won't be trying out for any more acting roles - because he finds the industry too gruelling.
He says, "What I hated was sitting in some waiting room to audition for some s**t role that five other actors already turned down, and I walk in and he goes, 'You're too short.' F**k off. A working actor is unemployed every two or three months. Wow! That's a tough gig. I'd rather write a song."
