The `Pirates of the Caribbean` actor - who has 10-month-old son Flynn with wife Miranda Kerr - admitted spending time with his baby has "gazumped" everything else in his life, as he always wants to be by the tot`s side.
He told Radio Times magazine: "I just don`t want to be away from him - at all. We are trying to schedule our lives so that, when I`m working, Flynn and Miranda can be with me. And if she`s working I can be with them. Being a hands-on parent is important to me.
"Time with my son has pretty much gazumped everything else that makes me happy. We`ll be going to New Zealand soon for `The Hobbit` and they`ll all come with me."
Orlando explained while he is still a fan of extreme sports, he has curbed his passion for thrill-seeking activities since becoming a father.
He added: "I`m much more conscious of my health and safety. I still ride a motorbike and go mountain biking, but I`m quite aware that I do not want to kill myself here. I don`t want to take any risks."
