Viggo Mortensen puts son before acting
by auditioning contributor Nisha
Actor Viggo Mortensen, known for his role in The Lord of The Rings, is reportedly taking a break from acting to spend more time with his 17-year-old son Henry. "He wants to be there for Henry in his final year of school," a source told Star. Viggo’s rep says that he is not taking a total break from acting, he is just looking for L.A.-based projects.
Viggo, 46, recently turned down a role in the upcoming movie Teresa because it was shooting in Spain.
