hasn’t been seen out and about much in Hollywood since the conclusion of his legal battle with ex last year. That’s because he’s settling down across the pond.
The 59-year-old actor revealed that he’s been spending a good deal of time in Somerset, England in recent months.
He opened up about the quieter life he’s leading and what it’s like in the countryside in a new interview.
Speaking with , Johnny explained that he has a house in Somerset.
“I just love places with character. I have various houses in various places and they all mean something special to me. I don’t have them just to say I own them, I have them for use and because they are a bit special,” he said about his various homes.
The actor hinted that he enjoys the English countryside where he gets a bit more privacy from both fans and the paparazzi.
“I can go into shops without being surrounded by people wanting selfies. I don’t mind that up to a point, but sometimes it gets a little too crowded,” he said, adding that “British people are cool and will greet you as if you are a neighbor without going over the top.”
Johnny hinted that a big part of the draw was that Somerset aligned with his personality.
“I like going places, seeing things and meeting people but I am not the great extrovert that people think,” he explained. “I am an actor and try to give people what they expect but in truth I am quite a shy person and I like to wander around places and just enjoy being. That is one of the great things about Britain and especially Somerset. I can just be me – and that’s nice.”
