Willem Dafoe has hit out at the movie business - saying it's changed for the worse.

The Hunter star complained that today's films were all about making money.

He told The Guardian: "It's always been a business. But before, there was always a sense of research and development. There was a culture. Now it's just led by the bottom line."

The Spider-Man and John Carter star said that he didn't feel like an actor.

"I don't interpret, I do," he said.

"Sometimes I say I feel more like a dancer than an actor, because there are things implied about being an actor that I don't really like.

"I feel more comfortable with the word 'performer'. I like being the thing. I like being the doer. There's a factualness to it. And then certain resonances happen out of how you apply yourself physically."
