The actor, 24, who is currently filming the third Transformers film, said he wanted to be like Dustin Hoffman.

He reportedly told The Sun: "I am not where I want to be at. And I hope I will never go to the stage where I've gotten there and I am comfortable. Because that's the death of an actor."

He said: "Look at Hoffman, he is still striving, pushing and fighting. Comfort is the end. I have goals that are tangible, but they are way distant, and I created them so that they are distant."

The Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull actor, who dates his Wall Street 2 co-star Carey Mulligan, said he was not ready for children, telling the newspaper: "Sure, there is time for a relationship. There is time for everything."

But he insisted: "I am not talking about family yet."

The actor, who plays trader Gordon Gekko's new apprentice in the forthcoming Wall Street sequel, added: "I am not the most talented dude of my generation. I am the luckiest dude on the planet, it feels like."
