The Scottish actor, who will next be seen in romantic comedy Playing For Keeps, admitted that sometimes the constant press attention can be overwhelming.

"I love what I do but I also love getting away from it all," he said.

Asked what he would do if he was to retire from acting, Gerard added: "If I was to give it up, I think I would spend a while just going seeing the world, just chilling. Going to the middle of nowhere and relaxing because I love that.

"You appreciate that all the more when you do this. You're filming, you're around a lot of people, you do press, you're around a lot of people, you do premieres... It's all fun but you need to balance that out with something else."

The 43-year-old added: "So I often think that if I was to retire, I would disappear somewhere for a bit."

Gerard also denied rumours that he's been getting singing tips from Johnny Depp, saying: "There's not an ounce of truth in that."
