When he was a
struggling actor he used to work at London’s Hard Rock Cafe where he admits he had fun
winding up the diners.
He says: “They’d ask for a black T-shirt and we’d reply: What kind of black would you like? Midnight black, dark black, rock back or granite back?”
“Then they’d ask to see them, so we’d bring out four T-shirts that were exactly the same,” he says in an interview with FHM magazine.
“Sometimes they took ages – it was a big deal for them.”
