Jesse Lingard has had many difficulties in his life. However, nothing could stop him from remaining positive and hoping for the best. Speaking to the Diary of a CEO podcast, Lingard talked about many topics, but his first goal is to be a happy man.
“I just want to be happy and do things that I want to do, to make me happy. ”- Lingard said, as quoted by mirror.co.uk Lingard surprised many when he revealed his plans after his football career. Jesse wants to become an actor and build himself in a totally different world than football.
“After football I want to go into acting. Maybe start doing a little bit of voiceover work, animation kind of things. But I need to take drama classes - I've not done that yet. I just love films. I've always been a big film lover.
And to be involved in a film or a series would be amazing. I need to really home in on the drama side of things - I'm really bad with lines to be honest. I think I'll start in comedy first. And then when you see the Interstellars and Inceptions - them kind of roles.
But that's going to take time. You're not going to be [cast] straight away. Maybe a bit part. With a media company I've got so many things in the line-up, and obviously it's based in LA, and that's hopefully where eventually, hopefully, I want to finish football”.
Jesse Lingard and alcohol
Jesse had many problems in his career, as we have already said. Family problems were particularly difficult. He looked for a way out in alcohol. “I was drinking before bed, having a nightcap,” he said.
“I look back now and think 'what was I doing that for? But I needed something to try and take the pain away”.
