Clarke: I don't want my kids to act

29 June 2012

Noel Clarke has revealed he wouldn't want his two sons to become actors.

While the Kidulthood star knew he wanted to act from a young age, he would discourage his own kids from entering the industry.

"My God no! I'm doing this so they don't have to," he said.

But he added: "If they wanted to, then of course I would support them, but it's not an easy profession. I guess they would be at an advantage because of nepotism and their dad."

Noel - who stars in sci-fi thriller Storage 24, which he also wrote and produced - said there have been times when he has considered an alternative career.

"I'd be a gigolo probably. Don't laugh, I'm serious! And if MMA (mixed martial arts) fighting was big back when I started, I would have probably trained in that," he admitted.

The 36-year-old often plays a Jack the lad on screen, having worked alongside Billie Piper, Thandie Newton, Naomie Harris and Mena Suvari (in his next film, romantic comedy The Knot), but in real life Noel remains a devoted family man.

"I'm still the same guy, I just have a few different jobs. My family comes first," he said.

"And my wife's more beautiful than all those girls, without a shadow of a doubt. That's not just me saying it either, she actually is."
