The Legion star, who appears in new films Broken Lines and Margin Call, also revealed he may not take on any more action roles.

"I loathe the movie business. I love making films but I loathe the business," he told the Guardian.

"I've made a career in the film business, I've made money out of the film business, it's been really good to me. But it's kind of repulsive.

"And I hate to be one of those actors moaning about how films were better in the past, but f*** me, films were just better in the past."

The actor, who buffed up to play a rifle-carrying archangel in Legion and a vampire-fighting cleric in Priest, also said action films were "incredibly vain".

"You get all fit and feel more stupid with every push-up," he said.

"It's hard to do sit-ups and read Remembrance Of Things Past."
