Bryan Cranston Retires from Signing Autographs


Bryan Cranston has retired from signing autographs.

The 61-year-old actor, whose fame rose exponentially after he fronted hit AMC series Breaking Bad, has always obliged fans’ signature requests.

But on Thursday (01Feb18), Bryan took to Twitter to inform his loyal followers that he has made the decision to stop signing every autograph. However, he’s more than happy to pose for a selfie if approached by a fan on the street.

“Friends, After 18 years of signing everything for fans – I’m retiring. Overwhelmed by requests and I just can’t do it anymore. I love meeting fans and will personalize pix (sic) in person, but that’s all,” he tweeted. “Thanks for your understanding. See you on the street – we’ll take a selfie! Bryan.”

His tweet led to a flurry of hilarious Breaking Bad gifs from fans disappointed with his new stance on autograph signing. However, others were more than understanding, considering Bryan has been in the public eye since the late 1980s.

The actor has always done his utmost to respond to fans’ requests. In 2014, he was contacted by a high school graduate who had terminal cancer, who wanted to fulfill his bucket list by Skyping with him.

Happy to oblige, Bryan also sent the 19-year-old a tonne of Breaking Bad memorabilia, as well as sending an ice cream truck to visit him and his family.

Another request came from a high school student, and Bryan was more than happy to revisit his famous Walter White voice to ask the boy’s crush to prom.
