The Gosford Park star, who is married to actress Billie Piper, loves recording his own songs and has an entire room in their home dedicated to his musical instruments, but the pricey hobby is hitting his bank balance.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "I have 10 guitars. I just bought the last one in America - a Taylor 12 string. It has changed the insurance price on our house. There is a room where I write and record little bits and bobs."
