Jim Broadbent regrets behaving badly

Los Angeles, March 8 (IANS) Oscar-winning actor Jim Broadbent says he regrets being “foolish” earlier in life.

The 67-year-old, who stars in new film “The Sense of an Ending”, shared his views at a screening here, reports pagesix.com.

“I regret behaving badly when I was younger,” he said.

The actor added: “I did not know any better at the time. The thing is that the incidents that I caused were not funny… Youth is wasted on the young. It is better to have the wisdom of an old man in a young body… I was a bit foolish and teased people, trying to be funny.”
