Personal Quotes 

[on being in awe of his Eddie The Eagle co-star Hugh Jackman's physique] Hugh Jackman has got guns to die for. Have you seen his arms? They are bigger than my head!
[on there bring a friendly bodybuilding competition on the set of Kinsman: The Secret Service] The big competition was between me and Ed Holcroft, who plays Charlie. Ed and I, despite the fact that we loathe each other in the film, are really big friends. But we - from day one - had a big competition to see who would get the biggest pecs, because we knew that we had to be topless. I think he may have got the guns, but in terms of abs and pecs I think I just pipped him to the post.
