Jesse Metcalfe is delighted he agreed to take part in Jack Osbourne's daredevil U.K. TV show earlier this year (09) - because he was desperate to escape Hollywood.
The star teamed up with Ozzy Osbourne's son Jack on Celebrity Adrenaline Junkie, which sees stars take on a series of activities in challenging conditions.
Desperate Housewives actor Metcalfe headed out to New Zealand for a number of terrifying bungee jumps - and he is convinced the trip helped save him from the pressures of Hollywood.
He told viewers during the show, "This trip for me has really come at a good time. I was definitely feeling the stress and pressure of work and being part of the entertainment industry. This has really been an escape for me.
"We came on this trip as sheltered young boys, but we will leave grizzly men!"
