Josh says that doing that kept him mentally healthy.

“Luckily, I think I hit onto it early on in my life,” he shared. “It’s about creating a good home life and being able to do things that are wild and wonderful like making films, which is such a privilege.”

Josh went on, revealing that he was offered a role in “Brokeback Mountain, and I had a contract with Black Dahlia that I had to film, so I had to drop out of it.”

He added that he’s started to pick projects that don’t take him away from home for very long times, as he has three children with wife, Tamsin Egerton.

“I started doing smaller films, [since] the films didn’t take me away from the kids very often.”
