After I've been in America for a while, I get homesick for Scotland.
The club thing is a world people can associate with, letting your hair down at the weekend.
I loved going surfing down on Venice Beach. I'd go out with a board under my arm and think, 'I can't do that in Cranhill.'
I think I have a gift, but I haven't really opened that gift yet and given it to myself.
Hobbits are a lot like Scots. It's all about nature and enjoying their land, which is a very Scottish thing.
Life in LA is not lying in the sun for months. It is having a 4pm meeting and leaving at noon to sit in traffic for four hours. It's not glam.
Then there are actors my age like Ethan Hawke, he's in 'Moby Dick,' I love his work. I've been lucky. Alfred Molina, he has real class.
In fact, Russell Crowe once phoned me up to see if I wanted to go to a party but I had to bring my guitar and perform 'Oh Jean.'
But you talk to most filmmakers and it is six, seven, eight years trying to get things off the ground. It is incredible really.
I really like acting but, just now, the more I read a script I find myself thinking I'd like to direct rather than act.
I think Scotland has some great stories.
I'd be lying if I said it wasn't fun to go to these nights out, like the opening of a film or something, but I dip in and out of it.
Rather than thinking, 'If I do this, and in five years I'll be where I want to be,' you're better just doing something that makes you happy now.
My worst habit is whistling while I sleep.
I think once you get it in your head, that you're not going to do anything bigger, you just do things that you enjoy, which has always been my ethos anyway.
