"Although I like meeting fans and love the response from them. I"m far happier going down to my local pub, having a drink and sitting chatting to friends. That"s when I"m most relaxed," CBS News quoted him as saying. He added: "I didn"t go into acting because I wanted to be famous, I got into acting because I loved the creation and the making of good credible drama. Fame is just an extra added on."
The actor also has no desires to indulge in partying or buying expensive things. He said: "That"s not my scene. I"m more than happy to do the normal things and buy the things I bought before all this madness kicked off." The actor was amazed to see his snaps "buying underwear at my local store" on tabloids recently. Referring to paparazzi, he said: "These guys must be hiding in the rails or something."
