"He added: I wonder if coming in so young and not having those preconceived ideas of being an actor or working in Hollywood or being a celebrity - which obviously are all part of the business, part of the industry -- if not having those things as a child just allows you to pursue things without any ... maybe without any forethought! -"
Los Angeles, April 29 - Jamie Bell doesn't think he would have been an actor if he was only just beginning his career.

The 28-year-old, who was cast in the title role in Billy Elliot when he was just 13 years old, thinks starting out so young has given him a freedom in his career as he never had any preconceptions about fame or Hollywood that scared him off.

To be honest with you, I can't imagine just coming into the business now. I'd be terrified and it would probably scare me off, contactmusic.com quoted Bell as saying.

I've always done things without a second thought; like, if it's something that I want to do, I do it. There isn't a feeling of, 'How's this gonna look, what happens if it doesn't work?'
