Actor Retreating From Spotlight
9.27.2010 by Winsip Custer CPW News Service
Jonathan Goldsmith, the actor who has become famous for his role as the Mexican beer, Dos Equis,' The Most Interesting Man In the World, has decided to retreat from the spotlight with his new thirty-two-year-old bride and her six children by a previous marriage.
"There comes a time when the notoriety is just not enough to sustain you. So we are moving to a tiny cabin in the mountains near Durango...far from the maddening crowd," said Goldsmith who rejected Dos Equis' latest beer ad which said....
"As a selfless act of contrition and to set an example for the rest of the world he has moved his family of eight into an eight by ten foot cabin. And they love him for it. He is the most interesting man in the world. Stay thirsty my friends."
Goldsmith's refusal to come out of retirement prompted Dos Equis to sign the Dali Lama and novelist Cormack McCarthy for its next ads with Goldsmith who still refused, but chuckled when they told him about the ad featuring him with the two world renowned personalities. "The Dali Lama once paid him for spirituality lessons" and "Cormack McCarthy tried to change the name of his novel, No Country for Old Men, after meeting him, but it had already gone to press." Goldsmith still refused to abandon his plan.
