AVATAR may now be the most successful film in history with $1.2 billion taken at the global box offices as of yesterday, but its lead actor Sam Worthington still fears being out of work and not being able to pay the bills.
The 33-year-old Australian star has admitted after five back-to-back movies including Avatar, Terminator Salvation and the Clash of the Titans remake, his lifestyle is not the healthiest one despite his growing fame.
And at the back of his mind is every actor's fear - a plunge into irrelevancy.
"Every actor thinks that ... every actor fears unemployment," he told our man in London, Charles Miranda.
"Every actor, no matter who they are, thinks 'where is the next job?'
"If there is a reason why I have gone so hard out of the gate and done movie after movie after movie after movie - there is a point where you go 'am I saturating, will the public be sick of me?', but what I believe is it raises my game because it means I will always be trying to improve on myself."
Those fears aside, Worthington reckons he's kept his feet on the ground and plans to continue doing so by adhering to a hard-work ethos.
"I live an ordinary life, I go home drink beer, do my washing," he said.
"Doing normal things, that's how I recharge.
"But I haven't stopped working since Avatar, so I think the most I've had off is a week between jobs.
"Five jobs back to back - I love working, it beats being unemployed, beats sitting there waiting for the phone to ring thinking, give me some work I've got bills to pay."
what a good courageous man
