London: Al Pacino feels "flattered" when younger actors consider him a role model, but says he doesn`t consider himself a legend.
"I`m very flattered to hear that, that compliment. I don`t think of myself as anything but an actor struggling to find the next role and when I do get the role to try and see if I can find any way into it," said the 70-year-old, who is still remembered for his role in "The Godfather" trilogy.
Pacino says he doesn`t have much advice to give to younger stars except that they should educate themselves and should be well read, reports contactmusic.com.
"With young actors I learn from them, just as hopefully I always will. If I were to advise them in some way, I would say this is a craft that you just have to keep doing. Do it whenever you can and you shouldn`t spend too much time dealing with the fact that there`s a world out there with a lot of competition.
"You have to educate yourself. You have to read. You have to see things that are inspiring to you."
