Ask a grown-up: what's it really like being a grown-up?

The 42-year-old actor and author answers seven-year-old Sam's question

"Being a grown-up is pretty good. I've heard people say, "Oh, it's so much easier when you're a kid, you have no worries at all", but I don't agree. I remember having lots to worry about when I was a boy. The world seemed like such a confusing place and I couldn't really do much to change my situation, so those worries were very real and sometimes terrifying.

Now that I'm a grown-up, I can change the parts of my life that I don't like. I think one of the secrets is to get a job that you love doing. You don't have to decide now, and you may change your job many times, but being stuck in a job that you hate must be miserable. I love being an actor so much that I can't believe I get paid to do it. I would do it for free. My friend Jay is a carpet fitter. He loves fitting carpets as much as I love acting. He is one of the happiest and funniest grown-ups I know."
