The American actor gave his interview to a famous media website in 2010 in which he disclosed that “I had been given thousands of dollars of spending money and it was all pilling up in my suitcase.” He was allegedly being paid up to £1,000 per day, all of which he was keeping in suitcases around the set of the film.
