The 'Olympus Has Fallen' star, who also produced the upcoming action film, had a close brush with the law in Los Angeles when he was caught speeding at 100 miles per her hour because he was so stressed out from working on the film.
He explained: "I remember once, I was driving down the freeway at over a 100 miles-an-hour and I was just tense, gritting my teeth, and I passed a cop car. The officer put his cop lights on before I even got to him. I have been pulled over by a few cops, but they usually follow you for five minutes and make you sweat. But this guy realised, 'I ain't following him, he's gone.' I was pulled over, but I was let go after I explained I was saving the world."
