Bettany: The Vision is harder work
Paul Bettany has said he has to work harder for his money at Marvel now that he actually appears on screen.
The Mortdecai actor has provided the voice of computer Jarvis in previous Marvel films including Iron Man and Avengers Assemble, but for the upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron, he will also appear on screen as character The Vision.
He explained: " There are good and bad things about it. Playing Jarvis, I used to turn up for 45 minutes at the end of post production on a movie, record in a studio, and they would give me a bag of cash, you know what I mean?
"Now I have to work for my money, if you can call it working."
Paul has been back in his hometown of London a lot lately as he filmed new comedy caper Mortdecai there, as well as the latest Avengers instalment.
He said: "Filming Mortdecai and then Avengers, I've been in London for eight months of the last 12 months. I want to come home, I really do. I don't know if I can because my eldest son's father lives in New York.
"I miss it so much. The city feels so vibrant again, like I haven't felt it since the mid Nineties - which was great, by the way, for lots of reasons that are mostly terrible - but it feels like that again, and I really, really, really miss it and I really, really want to come home."
Paul can be seen alongside Johnny Depp in Mortdecai, out in cinemas now.
