“Look, I’m in the fourth quarter of the football game now, in life and in showbiz. It’s just a fact,” Corbett said in an appearance on the Fly on the Wall podcast. “So I can reveal now I picked the f***ing wrong thing to do with my life.”

Corbett also starred in United Stars of Tara, Parenthood, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, Undone, Rebel, and How I Met Your Father. The actor has also had film roles in movies like To All the Boys and My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

“Have you ever sat in a f***ing waiting room of a doctor’s office for like an hour and been like, ‘what the f**?'” Corbett said. “For me, that’s what making a movie is like, because I’m not part of any creative process.”

The actor said that his creativity in the field has not been fulfilling adding, “I’ve made a lot of money, I live in a beautiful home, people come to me at every restaurant I go in, I’m a friend of the world. But as far as a fulfilling creative work life, I didn’t write one f—ing line. I didn’t write one joke that made people laugh. So it’s been unfulfilling on that level.”
