Sam Worthington: I fell into acting
Speaking to OK! magazine, the actor said he had been working as a bricklayer before embarking on an acting career.
"I built houses and fell into acting because of a girl, as most actors do," he revealed.
"She wanted to go to drama school in Australia, and I went along to do an audition for moral support basically - but I got in. She didn't and she dumped me a week later, so that was the end of that."
The 33-year-old, who is currently starring in Clash of the Titans, also revealed that he had tried to become the next James Bond, adding that he had gotten down to the final three. The role went to Daniel Craig, with Worthington stating that he was the best actor for the job.
Worthington will next be seen in Last Night.
