Los Angeles, May 27 (IANS) Actor Jason Statham, who has been in a relationship with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for five years, says they enjoy letting their hair down at their home here when they aren’t busy working.
Asked what they like to do together, Statham said: “We get drunk and float around the swimming pool.”
The British star plays a tough man in his new film alongside Melissa McCarthy and admits he was initially “apprehensive” about starring in a comedy, but thinks it will be a hit.
“I’ve always been apprehensive about trying to do a f**king comedy, because they’re either brilliant or they’re f**king terrible. At least in making an action film, there’s always going to be someone who wants to see a car chase,” Statham told Esquire magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“Even if a lot of the people don’t like it, there will be a lot of people that do. But bad comedy is just garbage. But this works, and I give a lot of the credit — or all of the f**king credit — to Paul (Feig) and the writing,” Statham added.
