Speaking about son Magnus, 6, Will revealed that he’s starting to realise what his dad does for a living.

‘My six-year-old is just starting to figure out what it is I do,’ Will revealed.

‘Just this summer he leaned over to me and was like, ‘By the way, dad. I know what you do. I know you’re in movies, just so you know.’

‘But he still doesn’t really know. He did see me in Elf when he was two or three and he started crying when I had to float away on the iceberg.’
