MEXICO CITY: Hollywood director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu said that he’s ready to “hibernate like a bear” after back-to-back work on two Oscar-nominated films, including The Revenant.
The harrowing survival thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a 19th-century fur trapper tops this year’s Oscars nominations list with 12 nods, including for best picture, actor and director.
Gonzalez Inarritu also helmed last year’s big Oscars winner Birdman, which earned four golden statuettes, including for best picture and director.
The director compared the back-to-back movie directing to “running two marathons.”
“The only challenge that I am facing is resting for six months. I want to crawl into a cave to hibernate like a bear,” Gonzalez Inarritu told reporters at a press conference in Mexico City late Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), where he is promoting his latest film.
“I cannot imagine that I will be making another movie anytime soon,” he added.
