Luke Wilson is ready to take a break from movies so he can settle down and start a family… he just has to find a girlfriend first.

The 38-year-old actor admits he’s driven by the fear he’ll be too old to play with his kids if he continues to focus on his career.

Drew Barrymore’s ex says, “I’m working on that one. Start a family, start tucking my shirt in and wear a belt, putting the right button in the right hole.

“I’ve got to find the girl, number one. And then I’ve got to somehow make her believe in me – that’s going to take a couple of years. I’ve got to BS (bulls**t) her into thinking I’ve got my (stuff) together.”
Wilson admits his busy work schedule has prevented him from actively looking for love because he’s always plotting his next career move – but he worries his dream of becoming a dad will not come into fruition until it’s too late.

He says, “I’m always thinking about this job or that job or when I have a movie coming out. Before you know it, a decade’s gone by. And then I start to think, ‘Well, hell, Anthony Quinn had kids when he was 80. I shouldn’t be in a hurry.’ But I don’t want to have to pay a neighborhood kid to throw the football with my kid.”
