Costner: Hard work doesn't scare me

Kevin Costner isn't afraid to get his hands dirty, he revealed at a screening of his latest film.

"Manual labour has always been a part of my life, it doesn't scare me, its one thing I think I really know how to do," the actor confessed at the AFI Fest in Hollywood.

The actor hit the red carpet to show audiences his new movie Company Men, a story about three men trying to survive a round of corporate downsizing, which also stars Ben Affleck.

"I hope the film is about reality, that what you think is important can be snatched away from you in terms of material things, but what you have is your family," Kevin explained.

He went on: "Can you swallow your pride? Can you take a job that you thought you never would in order to feed your family? Are you willing to do that? That's the measure of the man."

The 55-year-old admitted he's always had a very strong work ethic.

"I used to frame houses, that's how I put myself through school, I also worked commercial fishing boats," the actor revealed.
