"In the past six or seven weeks I've been to Scotland, England, Italy, Switzerland, Thailand, Mexico and Colombia all for different reasons. But mostly for travelling, just going to places and seeing friends.

"A couple of the visits were actually about doing movies, but the highlight for me was in Thailand, becoming a monk. I was hiding out in temples a lot," he added.
