Eric Bana is not afraid to suffer a little for his art. Inhe happily stacked on 15 kilograms to play Chopper Read. To transform into the villain Nero for this year's blockbuster Star Trek, the Melbourne-based actor shaved his head and underwent hours in the make-up chair each day.
But for his latest film, The Time Traveller's Wife, Bana repeatedly had to strip down on the chilly Toronto set while his beautiful co-star Rachel McAdams and other cast and crew stayed clothed. Today we're in much more comfortable surrounds at New York?
The Time Traveller's Wife is based on the best-selling novel by Audrey Niffenegger, in which Bana stars as librarian Henry DeTamble, who has a gene that causes him to time travel involuntarily. Looking back on the experience, Bana says he may have played things a little differently knowing what he now knows. Then I could have got it all over and done with, which would have been good. Those scenes were an unnecessary evil. I did exactly as I was told so we could get them done as quickly as possible and get on with the rest of the day. Director Robert Schwentke says he did everything he could to make Bana feel as comfortable as possible for the film?

Bana lives with his wife of 12 years, Rebecca Gleeson, and their two children, son Klaus, 10, and daughter Sophia, 7. The couple met while Bana was working on the comedy show Full Frontal and Gleeson was a publicist. None of us choose the moment we meet each other. It has nothing to do with us.

These days it? Back then, it was different. The two are obviously close and Bana describes himself as a "pretty romantic" guy, citing his parents Ivan and Eleanor Banadinovic as his role models on matters of the heart. To have that sort of example of two people enduring a love and a life together, I don? It's getting rarer and rarer. While Bana?
Apart from Finding Nemo [in which Bana voiced the character of Anchor] of course," he says with a laugh. But his impersonations from Full Frontal?
They love voices so if they see anything like that they're easily pleased," he says. Looking back at his career, which has included such critically acclaimed highs as Chopper, Munich and Romulus, My Father, along with box office disappointments such as Hulk and Lucky You, Bana is philosophical.
I believe in doing the best I can and as much as I can, I take control of things but I don?
If given the chance, I wouldn? I would do exactly the same things all over again.
Nude scenes are a pain says Bana. Please try again later. The Sydney Morning Herald.
