And he revealed on Friday he has been busy writing a movie musical while hunkered down at his home in Maroubra.

He noted that reading the book Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert – who also wrote the bestseller Eat, Pray, Love – helped get his creative juices flowing.
‘I swear to God if I didn’t read that book I would’ve succumbed to my normal thoughts which is like, “Who do you think you are writing a movie? What do you think you are, Spielberg or something? Crawl back into your hole,”‘ he admitted.
‘You know those negative thoughts like “it will never be The Greatest Showman” and then you would give up on the idea.’
