In an interview with the U.K.'s Guardian, the actor reveals he was a set dresser on precisely one soft-core skin flick back in the late '90s. Hey, he needed the money.

"You gotta move cameras around, and ashtrays; and continuity is apparently an issue," he said. But what saved him? Apparently a call from his girlfriend of more than a decade, Jennifer Westfeld, whom he met when she offered him a role in a play she was putting on in New York called Lipschtick.
 

"I came in after another 12-hour day (on the porn set) to this message on my answer phone, and I was so exhausted and depressed and bone tired that I called her back immediately: 'Yes! I don't care what it is!'" he said. "I borrowed money for a ticket and lived in New York for six weeks on about $300, stayed on a friend's couch, roller-bladed everywhere."

That six-week job, of course, netted him a girlfriend that he's still with, so you could say everything worked out fine. Oh, plus all the acclaim for his acting, too.
