The 67-year-old actor has had a successful career spanning four decades, but is now feeling the pressure of his advancing years. He tries to keep old age at bay with his daily fitness regime, although even that causes problems. He is so used to completing his workout at the same time travelling leaves him disorientated because his routine changes.
"If I fly somewhere and the hours change, I`m a mess. Normally I get up the same time every day and I exercise. I`m used to routine," he admitted in an interview with Total Film magazine. "I feel over 100 years old."
Keeping fit is important to Christopher, who initially trained as a dancer. He still can`t believe how is career panned out, explaining he never expected to make movies when he was a youngster. "I started out as a dancer, somehow I got a job in a play and then ended up an actor," he laughed. "I`m not really an actor, I`m a dancer."
The star has kept up his dancing and famously showcased his talent in the video for Fatboy Slim`s 2001 single Weapon of Choice.
