He said: "I did a movie in London in the 80s, 'For Queen and Country', and there was a scene where we had to drink. So me and this other young actor said: 'Man, let's really drink.' We had some scotch and thought we were playing it pretty cool. And the director said: 'What's wrong with you guys?'
"We thought we were wild but we were really just dull. The director was p***ed off and it taught me a lesson. That was the last time I ever drank while working. Because it doesn't work. I've worked with actors who've crossed that line and it's just not worth it. You think you're giving 100 per cent, but all the while your level is dropping."
The star has had a distinguished career, picking up two Oscars - Best Supporting Actor for 'Glory' in 1989 and Best Actor for 'Training Day' in 2001 - and says he was drawn to acting ever since he was a child.
"Finally she got a piece of paper and wrote 'prophecy' at the top. She said: 'You are going to travel the world and preach to millions of people.'

I still got that piece of paper too."
