Christoph Waltz has revealed he has been so inundated with movie offers since starring in Inglourious Basterds, he is finding it difficult to choose between them.

The German actor has already picked up several awards for his role as charismatic Nazi Hans Landa aka The Jew Hunter in Tarantino's latest film and is nominated for an Oscar and a Bafta.

Christoph said: "It's fabulous, I do have my choice [of roles] and they're getting increasingly difficult, and as pleasing as that is, I don't handle conflicts very well, these kind of conflicts, so we have to be discreet and sensitive."

The 53-year-old actor admitted it was a risky role to play, but he enjoyed the challenge.

He said: "Yes, it was risky, but that doens't mean that it would worry me - quite the contrary, the riskier the better. You can take risks that are ridiculous, but that's not risk anymore, that's fool hardy."

Talking about working with Quentin Tarantino, he said: "It was the experience of a lifetime and I could tell you a lot about him, but for me the most wonderful thing about working with Quentin is the intimacy."

He added with a smile: "You want to know more about that don't you - then it wouldn't be intimate."
