Further, the actor said that he realised people were gathering around him and were taking photos and videos on their phones while he was lying on the ground injured.

''If you're in the public eye, what you realise when you're on the ground thinking it's the last minute of your life is that, for some people, it's just going to be entertainment for their Facebook page.''

“I’m a pretty positive guy, but that told me, clearly, that you really are here just for their entertainment. You want to take every one and shake them,” the actor said.

"I didn't know I'd have twins," he says. "There is that moment when you go to the doctor and they pull out this piece of paper which is a sonogram and they go, 'Here' and you go, 'It's a baby boy.' I'm like, 'Baby boy, fantastic,' " he recalled. "And then they said, 'And the other one is the girl' and I was like, 'Oh s—t,' " the actor said.
