Veteran actor Joss Ackland has blasted Passion Of Mind co-star Demi Moore as "not very bright or talented." The 73-year-old star has also lashed out at himself, admitting that most of his work was "awful." Bemoaning the parts offered to him, he says, "I'm so tired of not being able to make a movie without a car chase, or the villain dying twice. It's all exactly the same." Ackland confesses that many of the roles he has undertaken in his 50 year career were just for the money or to settle bets. The 72-year-old says, "I do an awful lot of crap, but if it's not immoral, I don't mind. I'm a workaholic. I was in Mad Dogs And Englishmen, with Liz Hurley, which was God-awful and quite rightly torn to shreds. Then there was Passion Of Mind last year with Demi Moore. Terrible script. Awful, actually, but I needed the money." Ackland also says he "regretted" appearing in Bill And Ted's Bogus Journey, starring Keanu Reeves, and his cameo in a Pet Shop Boys video.
