There I have the best rest and I produce wine there. I have all my lovely animals, we grow our own fruits and vegetables.Everything is organic. It’s the other half of my life,” he explains.
The 74-year-old continued, “The thing that bothered me about Hollywood was that people only cared about show business. I’m not really into show business. It gave me a good life. I like acting and movies, but I’m not interested in the entertainment industry. I don’t care what works at the box office. I do not care. And I don’t care who the new star is as long as I don’t work with them. I’m just not interested in the entertainment industry,” he said. “It’s different from life as an actor.

According to Neil, writing a memoir about his life doesn’t mean his life is “really special.” “But I think it’s really exciting. I write about the time I spent in India and Rajasthan. It was a series of accidents that got me into acting. Until I was 29. I never became a full-time actor. So I find writing about it very cathartic. So I would like to give him some time. I don’t know if anyone will be interested in it, but it’s definitely there for my grandchildren,” he concludes.
