London: ‘The Artist’ star Jean Dujardin says he hasn`t ever had a career plan and thinks his success is simply a "happy accident". The French star, who won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in silent film ‘The Artist’, said he never considered working in movies after a career as a stand-up comic and on the television, reported a website.

"I didn`t think about cinema. It could`ve ended at the cabaret stage. But I crossed over, and happy accidents kept happening. I never stopped working. But it was never a career plan," Dujardin said.

However, the 39-year-old hunk is keen to stick to his French roots despite his success because to ask for more would be indecent.

"I`ve always been put into boxes with labels on them. What`s funny is to make fools out of people. And not to stagnate in just one role - that`s the essential thing. If there was a nice project I will star in an American film, but I don`t have the fantasy, that dream. To make movies in France is huge enough. It would be indecent to ask for more," he said.
