Record-setting Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, who had one of the great calendar years in recent memory, says he's been preparing for at least the last six or seven years for other endeavors following his retirement from football.

He told Sky Italia (h/t Metro UK) that this could include an acting turn. 

I want to try other things; for example, to do movies. I started to plan my future when I was 27, 28 “ a long time ago, I began preparing.

He wouldn't be the first footballer to forge an acting career. Eric Cantona and (especially) Vinnie Jones have appeared in films.
