Kevin Spacey hates being referred to as a celebrity.
The '21' actor - who is the current artistic director of London's Old Vic theatre - detests living in the public spotlight and would rather be known for his acting accomplishments.
He said: "I have a revulsion for the word celebrity. I'm a relatively ugly character actor who's done pretty damn well in film. So I thought I thought I would devote myself to doing something that I knew would change the quality of my life."
Kevin says moving to London has improved his quality of life dramatically and he is now more content then ever.
He added: "I'm happier now than I've ever been. Working at the Old Vic theatre in London has done that. It makes me feel like I'm doing what I should be doing.
"I want to be involved with this theatre for the next seven or eight years. I want to challenge myself with some of the great parts."
