In fact, while telling an anecdote about the time he almost said no to a Prada advertising campaign for a very hefty paycheck, he revealed how the Shameless actress motivated him to take it.
‘The money was incredible,’ he recalled. 'And Anne-Marie kept saying to me, 'Are you gonna turn that down?’ 'Yeah I’m gonna turn that down. I’m not a salesman.’ ‘You’re being a d–k. Do something with it. Give it to charity.“ He continued, "And I was like, 'Ding!’ About four minutes after she said that to me I was on the phone to the agent. 'Yeah, I’ll do it.’”
He ended up giving a third of the money to Unicef, a third to Retrak (a Ugandan organization that helps children) and a third to a new scholarship.
